【Abstract】 To understand the current status and implementation progress of the Opinions on Reforming and Improving the General Practitioners Training and Incentive Mechanisms(〔2018〕 No.3 issued by General Office of the State Council of the People's Republic of China),this paper systematically reviews the documents issued by provinces(autonomous regions and municipalities) in 2018 and typical cases reported in 2019 in China,and analyzes the results of field research in Shanghai,Guangdong,Anhui,Shandong,Hainan,Shaanxi and other provinces(autonomous regions and municipalities) using the relevant data of general practitioners(GPs) in the 2013—2016 China Health and Family Planning Statistical Yearbook and 2018—2019 China Health Statistics Year book.As of December 2018,provinces(autonomous regions and municipalities) in China have issued implementation opinions or plans for GPs,and some of them have made innovations and breakthroughs in policies such as the training of GPs,reforming and improving the salary system for GPs,and expanding the career development of GPs.In 2018,the number of GPs per 10 000 population in China reached 2.22,and 40.6%(13/32) of the provinces(autonomous regions and municipalities) reached the goal of two qualified GPs per 10 000 population in 2020 ahead of schedule.The GP registration rate increased from 33.9% in 2012 to 50.8% in 2018.From the aspect of GP training,the three-stage organic training system for GP college education,GP postgraduate education,and GP continuing education has been further improved in some areas in the past two years.From the aspect of salary system reform,the performance salary of primary health care institutions is approved according to the salary level of public county(district) hospitals,and GP allowance is established internally,and more than 70% of the fee from contracted family doctor service is used for internal distribution in service teams in representative areas.The salary of GPs has been raised.From the aspect of appointment management,some representative regions improve the establishment of a turnover pool system and implement "employed by county and work in township" policy for GPs who have passed the standardized training of resident physicians and practice in rural areas,and give priority to the authorized strength and position to GPs.At the same time,drawing on the experience of representative regions,this article proposes relevant policy recommendations for the weaknesses of GP training and incentive mechanisms,with a view to providing suggestions for the further improvement of the GP system.

【Abstract】 Background General practitioners(GPs) are the "gatekeepers" of residents' health.Establishing and improving the training system of GPs and strengthening the construction of GP team are important parts of the reform of medical and health system.Objective Through an in-depth analysis of the situation of GP education after graduation in Chongqing from 2015 to 2018,this paper tries to find out the existing problems and put forward some suggestions.Methods The age,education background,identity,certification status and job position of GPs and assistant GPs participating in training from 2015 to 2018 in 55 GP training bases in Chongqing were collected.And the training scale and situation were analyzed.
Results From 2015 to 2018,the general practitioner standardized training,and the education background of the participants was mainly undergraduate,accounting for 92.53%(1 486/1 606)of the total number.In 2018,the number of undergraduates was 95.24%(420/441),an increase of 5.82% compared with 89.42%(321/359) in 2015.The participants were mainly fresh graduates and unit personnel,accounting for 60%-70% of the total number of fresh students,and mainly rural order oriented training students,accounting for about 80%.In 2016—2018,the training of assistant general practitioners was mainly based on junior college education,accounting for 98.99%(685/692) of the total number;among the participants,the fresh graduates accounted for 58.67%(406/692) of the total number.Conclusion At present,the training of assistant GPs starts late and the scale is insufficient.In the next step,we should continue to carry out training for rural order-oriented students(undergraduates) of clinical medicine and local specialized medical students freely.At the same time,specialized training for medical students should be started as soon as possible,and the training scale of assistant GPs should be appropriately expanded.

【Abstract】 Background Family doctor team is a main provider of contracted family doctor services. And how to scientifically establish a family doctor team using available human resources is the key to further promote such services. Objective To predict the development and operation of "2+X"-type family doctor team(consisting mainly of family doctors and nurses in combination with re-employed specialists retired from the secondary hospital,temporarily employed specialists,pharmacists,health managers and other healthcare workers) in urban community health institutions in Xijiang,to provide a scientific basis for accelerating the development of contracted family doctor services. Methods This study was conducted in 2019. The number of urban population,practicing (assistant) physicians and registered nurses working at urban community health institutions in Xinjiang of from 2011 to 2017 were obtained from 7 volumes of Xinjiang Statistical Yearbook(2012—2018). The urban population of Xinjiang in 2018 was derived from the 2018 Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region Statistical Bulletin on National Economic And Social Development.Based on the above-mentioned data from 2011 to 2017,a Grey Prediction Model GM(1,1) was developed and adopted to estimate the urban population from 2019 to 2025 and the number of healthcare workers in family doctor teams from 2018 to 2025 in Xinjiang.And the number of "2+X"-type family doctor teams in urban community health institutions from 2011 to 2025 was also calculated.And the number of people and coverage of services delivered by "2+X"-type family doctor teams were estimated based on presumed ratios of 2 000,and 3 000 people to one family doctor,respectively. Results It is predicted that during 2019—2025,the urban population of Xinjiang would gradually increase from 13.173 9 million in 2019 to 17.064 2 million in 2025. The number of practicing(assistant) physicians would increase year by year,from 3 083 in 2019 to 3 268 in 2025. The number of registered nurses would also increase year by year,from 3 256 in 2019 to 3 940 in 2025.Theoretically,the number of "2+X"-type family doctor teams(presumed to be developed based on the lowest eligibility criteria) wound increase in 2018—2025,and the teams established by urban community health organizations would number 3 268 in 2025.From 2011 to 2016,the number of registered nurses was lower than that of practicing(assistant) physicians. Until 2017,the ratio of doctors to nurses improved,which reached 1∶1.02,and was rising,with a slow speed.The ratio was predicted to reach 1∶1.08 in 2020 and 1∶1.21 in 2025. According to the prediction results of GM(1,1),the urban population of Xinjiang would be on the rise from 2011 to 2025. The coverage of services delivered by "2+X"-type family doctor teams wound be over 70%,reaching 82% up most,in 2018,estimated based on a presumed ratio of 3 000 people to one family doctor,and wound be 48% estimated based on a presumed ratio of 2 000 people to one family doctor.Theoretically,by 2025,the coverage would be 38%. Conclusion In Xinjiang,the predicted number of "2+X"-type family doctor teams wound increase gradually form 2018 to 2025,but there is still a big gap between the coverage of services provided by them estimated based on a presumed ratio of 2 000 urban people to one family doctor and universal coverage. To meet the great demand of community-based healthcare services,and realize the goals of every family has a family doctor,and everyone enjoys essential healthcare services,the training for healthcare talents in family doctor teams should be strengthened,and high-quality family doctor teams should be established.

【Abstract】 Background Previous studies have shown that hypertension,dyslipidemia and arterial stiffness are risk factors for cognitive dysfunction,while diabetes is an aggregation of the aforementioned three and other risk factors.As the incidence of diabetes-associated cognitive impairment is increasing annually,it is necessary to determine whether arterial stiffness has an effect on cognitive function in diabetic patients.Objective To explore the association between arterial stiffness and cognitive function among diabetic patients.Methods We enrolled 3 610 employed and retired workers with diabetes of Kailuan(Group) Limited Liability Corporation who underwent annual physical examination in KaiLuan General Hospital and its affiliated 11 hospitals in 2016,and divided them into group 1(the first tertile:baPWV<16.11 m/s),group 2(the second tertile:baPWV 16.11-19.30 m/s),and group 3(the third tertile:baPWV>19.30 m/s) by the baPWV level.We collected their baseline data,Mini-Mental State Examination(MMSE) score and detection rate of cognitive impairment.We performed multivariate Logistic regression analysis to explore the influence of baPWV on cognitive function in diabetes population.Results There were significant differences in mean age,systolic blood pressure,diastolic blood pressure,mean arterial pressure,baPWV,glycosylated hemoglobin,and eGFR,prevalence of smoking,secondary and post-secondary education level,history of hypertension,treatment with antihypertensive drugs and hypoglycemic drugs among the three groups(P<0.05).The mean MMSE score,and the prevalence of cognitive impairment in all the participants were (27.01±3.29),11.77%(425
/3 610),respectively.The mean MMSE score differed significantly in baPWV tertile groups(F=12.40,P<0.001).Pairwise comparisons showed that group 1 had lower mean MMSE score than other two groups(P<0.05).The prevalence of cognitive impairment also differed significantly in baPWV tertile groups(χ2=17.89,P<0.001).In particular,group 1 had lower prevalence of cognitive impairment compared with other two groups(P<0.016 7).Multivariate Logistic regression analysis showed that after adjusting for age,sex,mean arterial pressure,body mass index,low- and high-density lipoprotein,triglyceride,glycosylated hemoglobin,eGFR,alcohol consumption,smoking and physical exercise,the second tertile〔OR=1.49,95%CI(1.01,2.19)〕and third tertile〔OR=1.52,95%CI(1.02,2.28)〕 of baPWV(higher baPWV) were associated with increased risk of cognitive impairment.Conclusion The degree of arterial stiffness(baPWV≥16.11 m/s) is an independent risk factor for cognitive impairment in diabetic patients.

【Abstract】 Background Osteoporotic fractures are one of the main causes of disability and death in elderly patient,and early prediction and timely intervention are important links of prevention and treatment.The Fracture Risk Assessment Tool(FRAX?) recommended by WHO is used to assess the 10-year major osteoporotic fracture probability(MOFP) and hip osteoporotic fracture probability(HOFP).The fracture-related risk factors have been identified based on a number of independent large-sample prospective population studies and meta-analysis of large-sample studies in Europe,North America,Asia,Australia,etc,so they are representative.However,as large-scale epidemiological studies on the incidence of osteoporotic fractures and their influencing factors in Shanghai are ongoing,whether FRAX? predictions can accurately assess fracture risk in middle-aged and elderly people in Shanghai remains to be confirmed by further research.Objective To predict the risk of osteoporotic fractures in middle-aged and elderly people in Shanghai using the Chinese version of FRAX?.Methods Participants were 1 520 middle-aged and elderly Chinese people〔mean age was(65.5±9.6) years,range between 45 and 90〕 recruited from Department of Osteoporosis and Osteopathy,Shanghai Sixth People's Hospital Affiliated to Shanghai Jiao Tong University from January to October 2013.The Chinese version of FRAX? was used to calculate the 10-year MOFP and HOFP.The diagnostic criterion for high-risk of osteoporosis fracture was defined as 10-year MOFP≥20% or 10-year HOFP≥3%.Results Compared with men,women had higher median 10-year MOFP〔3.60%(2.80%) vs 2.10%(1.10%)〕,higher median 10-year HOFP〔0.80%(1.50%) vs 0.60%(0.70%)〕,and higher percentage of cases at high-risk for 10-year HOFP〔11.28%(87/771) vs 2.94%(22/749)〕(P<0.05).But the percentage of cases at high-risk for 10-year MOFP in women was similar to that of men〔0.13%(1/771) vs 0.13%(1/749)〕(P>0.05).Age-specific analysis showed that in men,the 10-year MOFP in age group of 50-59 was lower than that of age groups of 60-69,70-79 and 80-90(P<0.05).The 10-year HOFP in age group of 50-59 was also lower than that of other three older age groups(P<0.05).The 10-year HOFP in age group of 60-69 was lower than that of other two older age groups(P<0.05).In women,either the 10-year MOFP or HOFP increased successively in age groups of 45-49,50-59,60-69,70-79 and 80-90(P<0.05).BMI-specific analysis demonstrated that in men,the 10-year MOFP was lower in those with BMI≥28.0 kg/m2 compared with those with BMI<18.5,18.5-23.9 or 24.0-27.9 kg/m2.The 10-year HOPF decreased successively in those with BMI<18.5,18.5-23.9,24.0-27.9 and ≥28.0 kg/m2(P<0.05).In women,the 10-year MOFP was lower in those with BMI≥28.0 kg/m2 compared with those with BMI<18.5 or 18.5-23.9 kg/m2(P<0.05).Those with BMI 24.0-27.9 kg/m2 had lower 10-year MOFP than those with BMI <18.5 kg/m2(P<0.05).Those with BMI 24.0-27.9 had lower 10-year HOFP than those with BMI<18.5 or 18.5-23.9 kg/m2(P<0.05),as did those with BMI≥28.0 kg/m2(P<0.05).Those with BMI 18.5-23.9 kg/m2 showed lower 10-year HOFP than those with BMI<18.5 kg/m2(P<0.05).Female was associated with higher age- and BMI-specific 10-year MOFP and 10-year HOFP(P<0.05).Conclusion High risk of osteoporotic fractures was observed in older postmenopausal women who had lower BMI.So special attention needs to be paid to this group.The Chinese version of FRAX? has clear value to predict osteoporotic fractures in middle-aged and old people in Shanghai.However,there may be a possibility that the detection rate of high-risk people is low and the risk is underestimated.

【Abstract】 Background Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol(LDL-C) is one of the important risk factors for coronary heart disease(CHD).Most international guidelines consistently recommend LDL-C as the main treatment target for patients with hypercholesterolemia.However,whether LDL-C and non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol(non-HDL-C)should be used simultaneously as indicators of secondary prevention of cardiovascular diseases is still controversial at home and abroad.Objective To investigate the relationship between goal attainment of non-HDL-C and recurrence of adverse cardiovascular events in patients with CHD after percutaneous coronary intervention(PCI),and to compare the predictive value of the goal attainment of non-HDL-C and LDL-C in the long-term prognosis of patients with CHD.Methods A total of 665 patients who underwent PCI for CHD from 2002 to 2008 were followed up for three years in April 2019.The patients were divided into groups according to the goal attainment of blood lipid indicators(non-HDL-C,LDL-C) after six months of secondary prevention.Kaplan-Meier survival curve,Log-Rank test and Cox proportional hazards regression model were used to analyze the relationship between goal attainment of blood lipid indicators and major adverse cardiovascular events(MACE).Results In the real world,a relatively small number of CHD patients could meet the standard of blood lipid indicators after six months of secondary prevention after PCI.25.71%(171/665) and 27.07%(180/665) of patients met the criteria recommended in the guidelines for LDL-C and non-HDL-C,and only 17.29%(115/665) of patients met the criteria of both LDL-C and non-HDL-C at the same time.The incidence of MACE was 32.7%(56/171) in LDL-C standard group and 35.8%(177/494) in LDL-C non-standard group.The incidence of MACE was 25.6%(46/180) in non-HDL-C standard group and 38.6%(187/485) in non-HDL-C non-standard group.There was no significant difference in risk curve between the LDL-C standard group and the non-standard group(P=0.545);the cumulative incidence rate of MACE in the non-HDL-C standard group was significantly lower than that in the non-HDL-C non-standard group(P=0.010);there was no significant difference between the only non-HDL-C standard group and only LDL-C standard group(P=0.127).After adjusting the traditional risk factors such as age,gender,BMI,smoking history,coronary heart disease type and comorbidity by Cox proportional risk regression analysis,it was found that compared with LDL-C standard group,HR of LDL-C non-standard group was 1.16〔95%CI(0.83,1.61),P = 0.386〕;compared with non-HDL-C standard group,non-HDL-C non-standard group had higher risk of mace in the long term,HR was 1.61〔95%CI(1.12,2.30),P=0.009〕.Conclusion Non-HDL-C goal attainment is significantly associated with long-term MACE of CHD patients after PCI,while LDL-C has nothing to do with this.Therefore,non-HDL-C may be a more suitable monitoring indicator for dyslipidemia therapy in CHD patients after PCI than LDL-C.
