【Abstract】 This article attempts to compare similarities,differences and application prospects of three typical modes in which social workers participate in mental health services.These are specialized social worker training,governmental purchases,and setting up social worker departments in mental hospitals.Beijing,Chongqing and Shanghai were selected as representative sites.The first two modes are guided by government administrative departments,while the third mode is dominated by mental hospitals.In the aspect of future development of social worker team,specialized social worker training can expand the workforce in a short time.Governmental purchases can fully tap into the potential of existing social work organizations.Setting up social worker departments in mental hospitals makes the team more stable.In terms of service orientation,the government pays more attention to continuous service provision in the community,while social workers in mental hospitals provide services within hospitals as well as take on leadership roles in community work.The three models are neither isolated nor exclusive.All localities should make comprehensive explorations in accordance with its own economic level,social work resources and capability of mental hospitals,so as to promote the development of social work in mental health services.

【Abstract】 Background Opinions on the Implementation of Appointment Services in Public Hospitals〔WYGF(2009)No.95〕 issued by the original Ministry of Health put forward that public hospitals should be scheduled for appointments,and primary health care institutions are also within the scope of implementation.So analyzing the implementation of appointment services is of great significance for optimizing the diagnosis and treatment model of primary health care institutions.Objective To explore the implementation status of appointment services in community health centers(CHCs) in downtown Shanghai,providing suggestions for optimizing the primary healthcare system.Methods The survey was conducted across all the 10 CHCs located in Huangpu District,Shanghai through August 27th to September 11th,2018,with the method of focus group discussion.Participants were directors,and representatives of information department workers,and first-line clinicians and nurses recruited from the CHCs(4-6 cases from each).Information about current implementation of appointment services,including implementation plans,practice and evaluation were collected.Description was formed after coding,classification and condensing with content analysis.Results A total of 44 medical professionals attended.The survey that appointment services had been carried out in 9 CHCs.There were 3 major types of making appointments:making an appointment without medical record(3 CHCs),making an appointment with medical record,and consulting on the appointment date(7 CHCs),making an appointment with medical record,and having priority in consulting during the appointment period(5 CHCs).Multiple CHCs implement different appointment modes in different departments.But only a small percentage of patients made appointments,accounting for less than 10% of the total outpatient visits.The majority of patients who frequently used the appointment system were elderly adults,mainly for regular revisits or prescriptions.Those making an general-specialty appointment were mainly for obtaining specialty treatments.Patients preferred making an appointment during their visits,and the no-show rate was relatively low.Reducing the waiting time for consultation or improving the treatment environment,could alleviate patients' anxiety during consultation.However,all the types of making an appointment helped little in terms of balancing the number of patients in peak hours and off-peak hours.Neither would doctors lengthen the time of treatment for patients with an appointment.Conclusion The three types of making an appointment used in the CHCs,making an appointment without medical record,making an appointment with medical record,and having the priority in consulting during the appointment period if making an appointment with medical record,shows that the precise treatment time distribution and binding force for both patients and healthcare providers shave been gradually enhanced.Also,from the perspective of further upgrading the allocation of medical resources,the implementation of precise specialty appointment services is more mature than that of general appointment services.Overall,delivering appointment services for featured outpatient care that is different from general services,for example,home-based health management,would be the development direction of the general appointment services in the community.

【Abstract】 Background The comprehensive reform of separating drug sales from medical treatment was launched in an all-round way in Beijing in 2017.It would inevitably have a significant impact on community-dwelling residents' healthcare-seeking behaviors,but few studies have evaluated the impact from patients' perspective.This study provides empirical basis for deepening the comprehensive reform by evaluating changes of residents' utilization of health services after the reform.Objective To assess the changes in medication attitudes and behaviors of community-dwelling residents of Beijing since the comprehensive medical reform of separating drug sales from medical treatment has been launched in 2017 to evaluate the effect of the policy reform,and to provide solutions and advice based on key findings.Methods This questionnaire survey was conducted in
1 005 participants with an experience of seeking healthcare or purchasing medicines in medical institutions in the past 6 months,recruited from 8 community health centers in Xicheng District(at least 125 from each center) by convenience and voluntary sampling in January 2018.The survey collected residents' knowledge level of zero-profit drug policy,and medication attitudes and behaviors,and preferred institutions and flow in seeking healthcare/purchasing medicines(the latter two are evaluation indicators for the effect of the policy reform).Results A total of 969(96.42%) valid questionnaires were collected.After the reform,80.2%(777/969) of the residents were more likely to seek healthcare or purchase medicines in community health centers.Multivariate Logistic regression analysis found that those covered by free medical care were less likely to seek healthcare or purchase medicines in a community health center compared with those with basic medical insurance for urban residents〔OR(95%CI)=0.420(0.210,0.839),P<0.05〕.For the population flow of healthcare-seeking or purchasing medicines,55.7%(540/969) of the residents continued to see a doctor or purchase medicines in the community health center after the reform,and 27.2%(264/969) switched to the community health center from secondary and tertiary hospitals.Multivariate Logistic regression analysis showed that,higher possibility of changing health institutions,from a community health center to a higher level hospital,for seeking healthcare or purchasing medicines was found in residents with high education level rather than those with low education level〔OR(95%CI)=0.721(0.529,0.983),P<0.05〕,and in residents with free medical care rather than those with basic medical insurance for urban residents〔OR(95%CI)=0.383(0.194,0.757),P<0.05〕,and in residents with perceptions of drug cost reduction after the reform rather than those without such perceptions〔OR(95%CI)=0.475(0.227,0.993),P<0.05〕.Conclusion Since the comprehensive medical reform of separating drug sales from medical treatment has been launched in Beijing,a series of community-oriented measures,such as canceling drug markups and expanding the variety of drugs in the community,have effectively promoted the flow of residents to community health institutions to see a doctor or purchase drugs.It is necessary to further inform residents of drug policies,advocate zero-profit drugs and reduce medication costs,so as to encourage residents to change medication behaviors.

【Abstract】 Background Physical constitution is supposed to play an important role in the occurrence and development of diabetes mellitus in traditional Chinese medicine(TCM).However,current models for predicting and warning diabetes only cover general demographic data,objective inspection indicators,lifestyle and so on.It is of great significance to incorporate TCM constitution into the diabetes risk assessment model for the prevention and treatment of diabetes.Objective To establish and verify a TCM constitution-based diabetes risk assessment model using the health check-up data.Methods Health checkup data during 2014 to 2017 were obtained from the physical examination center of a provincial hospital from January 2016 to December 2018.In particular,the data of those(n=30 951) undergoing health checkup during 2014 to 2015 were used as the training data.Univariate and multivariate logistic regression were adopted to explore factors associated with diabetes in this group.Then a diabetes risk assessment model was developed with the identified risk factors for diabetes incorporated,and was verified using the data of those(test data,n=24 061) undergoing health check up during 2016 to 2017.ROC curve of the model in predicting diabetes was plotted and analyzed.Results Of those undergoing health checkup during 2014 to 2015,1 315 were found with diabetes(4.25%),and 29 636(95.75%) without.Multivariate Logistic regression analysis showed that Logit(P)(prevalence of diabetes mellitus)=-4.632-0.198

【Abstract】 Background Baseline total cholesterol(TC) is an influencing factor of new-onset stroke,but no studies have been conducted on the effect of cumulative total cholesterol exposure(cumTC) on new-onset stroke.Objective To explore the effect of cumTC on new-onset stroke.Methods Using prospective cohort study method,52 427 working and retired employees of Kailuan Group who had physical examination in 11 hospitals including KaiLuan General Hospital from 2006 to 2010 were selected as the study objects.The starting point of the follow-up was when the objects completed the physical examination in 2010,and the end point was when new-onset stroke or deaths happened or the end of the follow-up(2017-12-31).Baseline data and the incidence of new-onset stroke in each group were observed after all objects were grouped according to the cumTC quartile.The cumulative incidence was calculated by Kaplan-Meier method and tested by Log-Rank method.Cox regression model was used to analyze the effect of different cumTC on new-onset stroke.The fitting degree of different models was compared by likelihood ratio test.Results There were significant differences in age,male proportion,systolic blood pressure(SBP),diastolic blood pressure(DBP),BMI,cumTC,TC,high-density lipoprotein cholesterol(HDL-C),fasting blood glucose(FBG),stroke,ischemic stroke,smoking,drinking,hypertension and diabetes detection rates,taking lipid-lowering drugs proportion among groups with different levels of cumTC(P<0.05).During a mean follow-up year of(6.89±0.72),there were 1 611 new cases of stroke(1 415 cases of ischemic stroke and 229 cases of hemorrhagic stroke).The cumulative incidence of stroke was 2.53%(331/13 089),2.92%(384/13 148),4.18%(547/13 085) and 4.36%(571/13 105) in the first to the fourth quartile group,respectively,and the cumulative incidence of ischemic stroke was 2.17%(284/13 089),2.51%(330
/13 148),3.71%(485/13 085) and 3.99%(523/13 105),respectively.The difference was statistically significant by Log-Rank test(χ2=73.15,P<0.001;χ2=109.13,P<0.001).Cox regression analysis showed that after adjusting age,gender,BMI,hypertension,diabetes,smoking,drinking,physical exercise,HR(95%CI) of stroke and ischemic stroke in the fourth quartile group were 1.27(1.10,1.48) and 1.37(1.16,1.60) and those in the third quartile group were 1.22(1.05,1.41) and 1.27(1.08,1.50) compared with that in the first quartile group of cumTC.Increasing the factors of baseline TC level and taking lipid-lowering drugs,after likelihood ratio test,the fitting degree of the model was not optimized(P>0.05).After adjusting age,gender,BMI,hypertension,diabetes,smoking,drinking,physical exercise,HR(95%CI) of stroke and ischemic stroke in the group with cumulative exposure for more than 4 years were 1.20(1.02,1.40) and 1.28(1.08,1.50),compared with the group with cumulative exposure to hypercholesterolemia for 0 years.Increasing the factors of baseline TC level and taking lipid-lowering drugs,the cumulative exposure of hypercholesterolemia had no statistical correlation with the new-onset stroke,ischemic stroke and hemorrhagic stroke.After the likelihood ratio test,the fitting degree of the model was not optimized(P>0.05).Conclusion High cumTC is a risk factor of new-onset stroke and ischemic stroke.

【Abstract】 Background Bronchial asthma is a common disease of respiratory system,and positive results of bronchial provocation or dilation test are important evidence in the diagnosis of bronchial asthma.However,suspected positive bronchial provocation or dilation test results associated with symptoms are often observed in clinical practice.At present,there is no literature report on analyzing the influencing factors of the prognosis outcome of such patients.Objective To investigate the prognostic outcomes of patients with suspected positive results in bronchial provocation or dilation test and its influencing factors.Methods From August 2015 to February 2018,320 patients with suspected positive results in bronchial provocation or dilation test accompanied by at least one symptom of cough,expectoration,itching throat,wheezing,dyspnea and chest tightness were followed up for six months.The pulmonary function was reviewed and the symptoms and TCM syndrome scores were recorded to analyze the outcomes of the patients.Significant difference of clinical symptom proportion and TCM syndrome scores before and after follow-up was considered to be the remission of the disease.A transfer from suspected positive results to negative results in bronchial provocation or dilation test after six months was considered to be the improvement of the disease.Factors influencing the outcome of suspected positive patients with bronchial provocation or dilation test were analyzed by Logistic regression analysis.Results A total of 146 patients completed the 6-month follow-up,of which 49 patients were tested with suspected positive results in bronchial provocation test and 97 patients were tested with suspected positive results in bronchial dilation test.Among those 49 cases with suspected positive results in bronchial provocation test,20(40.8%) patients were tested with negative results;2(4.1%) patients were tested with positive results;4(8.2%) patients remained the same results,and 23(46.9%) patients underwent bronchial dilation test after six months.Among those 97 cases with suspected positive results in bronchial dilation test,44(45.4%) patients were tested with negative results;4(4.1%) patients were tested with positive results;10(10.3%) patients remained the same results,and 39(40.2%) patients underwent bronchial provocation test after six months.After 6-month of follow-up,the patients' TCM syndrome scores decreased(P<0.05).Among the patients enrolled,major symptoms(cough,expectoration,itching throat,wheezing,dyspnea,and chest tightness) were relieved with significant difference after six months(P<0.05).Analysis which was carried out on 84 patients who used bronchial provocation or dilation test before and 6 months after the follow-up showed that,there was a significant difference in the outcome of suspected positive patients in different age groups(P<0.05),and the improvement rates of pulmonary function were higher in patients applying acupoint application of traditional Chinese medicine or without allergic rhinitis and inhaled glucocorticoid(P<0.05).The Logistic regression analysis results showed that under the condition of multiple factors acting at the same time,there was no significant factor affecting the prognosis of patients suspected to be positive in bronchial provocation or dilation test.Conclusion Most patients with suspected positive results in bronchial provocation or dilatation test have reversible airway inflammatory responses.Patients may benefit from acupoint application of Chinese traditional medicine.

【Abstract】 Background The 24 h Blood pressure variability(24 hBPV),serum high-sensitivity C-reactive protein(hs-CRP) and homocysteine(Hcy) are independently associated with the target organ damage and increased risk of cardiovascular events in patients with essential hypertension.Several studies have shown that hs-CRP and Hcy are positively correlated with blood pressure variability(BPV) in hypertensives,especially the nocturnal blood pressure variability(nBPV) which is associated with the increased target organ damage and risks of cardiovascular events.However,the relationship between serum hs-CRP,Hcy and nBPV has not been fully identified in patients with essential hypertension.Objective To investigate the correlation between serum hs-CRP,Hcy and nBPV in patients with essential hypertension.Methods A total of 210 hypertensive patients who visited the Second Affiliated Hospital of Zhengzhou University from January 2016 to December 2018 were enrolled in the study and divided into three groups according to the serum hs-CRP tertile value with the cut-off value of 4.217 mg/L and 7.450 mg/L.Similarly,these patients were divided into three groups according to the different levels of Hcy:106 cases with Hcy<15.0 μmol/L(group A),45 cases with 15.0 μmol/L≤Hcy<20.0 μmol/L(group B),and 59 cases with Hcy≥20.0 μmol/L(group C).The 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring was performed on all patients.The mean and standard deviations(as the index of BPV)of systolic and diastolic blood pressure in the periods of 24 hours and at nighttime were recorded.The correlations between hs-CRP,Hcy and nBPV were analyzed by Pearson correlation analysis and multiple linear regression analysis.Results Grouped by hs-CRP level,24 hBPV and nBPV in the third tertile group were significant higher than those in the first tertile group,24 hBPV in the second tertile group was significant higher than that in the first tertile group(P<0.05).Grouped by Hcy level,24 hBPV and nBPV in group B and group C were significant higher than that in group A,nBPV in group C was significant higher than that in group B(P<0.05).Pearson correlation analysis indicated that the serum hs-CRP and Hcy levels were positively correlated with the standard deviation of systolic blood pressure at nighttime(nSSD) linearly(r valus were 0.564 and 0.501,P<0.05).Multiple linear regression analysis showed that hs-CRP and Hcy were the influence factors of nBPV(P<0.05).Conclusion Serum hs-CRP and Hcy are positively correlated with nBPV independently in patients with essential hypertension,suggesting that they may play a role in the pathogenesis of nBPV,possibly aggravate the abnormality of nBPV,and they may be the mediators between nBPV and the terminal target organ damage and cardiovascular endpoint events of essential hypertension.

【Abstract】 Background Birth defects have become a major global public health concern.In Shanxi Province,a high-incidence region of birth defects,the quality of birth population is seriously affected by the rate of birth defects.Objective To explore the trend in the incidence of birth defects and associated factors in Shanxi Province from 2012 to 2017,to provide evidence for the development of targeted prevention and control measures.Methods Surveillance data of perinatal birth defects covering 11 cities in Shanxi Province during 2012 to 2017 were collected from 37 monitoring institutions.Analysis was performed on the overall incidence of birth defects,prevalence of birth defects by sex,incidence of birth defects by maternal residential area(rural or urban),and maternal age at delivery,changes in major birth defects and the incidence rank in descending order of them,and the diagnosis and outcome of birth defects.Results In 2012—2017,the overall incidence of perinatal birth defects was 1.39%(6 316/455 374),and the average annual incidence of perinatal birth defects was 138.70/10 000.The annual incidence of perinatal birth defects showed an overall upward trend(χ2trend=97.68,P<0.001).The incidence of birth defects in males(149.56
/10 000) was significantly higher than that of females(124.65/10 000)(χ2=51.96,P<0.001).The incidence of birth defects(142.58/10 000) in urban areas was significantly higher than that of rural areas(134.84/10 000)(χ2=51.96,P<0.001).There were differences in the incidence of birth defects in different age groups(χ2=41.12,P<0.001).The incidence of birth defects in the age group >35(172.65/10 000) was higher than that in the 20-, 25-, and 30-year-old(χ2 values were 24.32,39.14,28.02,P<0.001).The top five major birth defects were congenital heart disease(37.31
/10 000),polydactyly(19.39/10 000),cleft lip with or without cleft palate(14.05/10 000),neural tube defects(7.71
/10 000),and other deformities of the outer ear(7.01/10 000).The incidence of congenital heart disease increased from 13.23/10 000 in 2012 to 58.27/10 000 in 2017,with a significant difference(χ2=404.54,P<0.001).Conclusion The incidence of birth defects in Shanxi Province in 2012—2017 was generally on the rise.In particular,the incidence of congenital heart disease ranked first.The implementation of three-level preventive measures need to be strengthened to reduce birth defects and improve the quality of birth population.

【Abstract】 Labor pain is a major cause for increased cesarean section rate and adverse pregnancy outcomes,but it can be controlled by interventions,among which labor analgesia is the most effective.Besides,it can also maintain maternal and infant safety and promote natural childbirth.In various labor analgesic methods,non-pharmacological analgesia produces less adverse reactions,but the analgesic effect remains to be confirmed.Drug-induced analgesia can relieve the labor pain,but with certain adverse reactions.So there are studies recommend the combination use of both drug- and non-drug-induced analgesia.Among different forms of drug-induced analgesia,epidural analgesia has a definite analgesic effect and a more flexible analgesic time,but requiring higher level of technique and costing more,with some controversies about the impact on maternal and neonatal outcomes.At present,the prevalence of domestic labor analgesia is far lower than that in foreign countries,wherefore it is necessary to strengthen the publicity,promotion and development of labor analgesia in China.
