        • Must Have Health Screenings in Your 40s


          from Lee Memorial Health System Added 451 0 0

          Many health issues such as heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes are treatable, if not avoidable if caught early. Dr. Sal Lacagnina, who oversees Lee Memorial Health System's Wellness Centers, believes hitting your 40s should signal that it's time to start paying closer attention to your health. Along with an annual physical, he recommends a few additional tests. "You really should start thinking about screening test for colon cancer especially if there's a family history," Dr. Lacagnina says. It's also time to asses your heart health. Measuring your cholesterol may show your risk for cardiovascular disease. Diabetes is another disease that can be screened by your doctor using a simple blood test. When it comes to men's health, this is the decade to start checking for prostate cancer. "It's still a little controversial, when to do the PSA's. But I find it helpful. I think a lot of physicians and providers find it helpful to do a PSA." Women in their 40s should include breast cancer screenings in their list of checkups. "Between 40 and 50 they should have a baseline exam," says Dr. Lacagnina, "you want to do it earlier when there's a strong family history of breast cancer." Women also need to keep up with their gynecological exams. Even if they've had a hysterectomy. "If the uterus and cervix were removed but the ovaries are still intact the only way to screen for ovarian cancer is to do a physical exam," says Dr. Lacagnina. Middle age starts the second half of life and is prime time to keep up with your health.

                  • Improving Health Literacy with Plain Language


                    from BCPSQC Added 134 1 0

                    Did you know that 60% of Canadians and 88% of seniors are not health literate? This impacts how well patients understand and evaluate instructions, advice and services. Health care professionals can help improve these figures by ensuring they communicate health information effectively through the use of plain language. Plain language isn’t about dumbing down how you write or talk. It includes words, tone, font size and simple document design strategies that are appropriate for the person or people you are speaking with.And that’s why it’s also important for health care professionals to use plain language when communicating with each other. It’s easy to forget that interdisciplinary team members may not know our jargon or share the same level of specialized knowledge. At this Quality Café webinar, filmed on May 29, 2013, participants learned about research, tips and resources that can help you better communicate with patients, your colleagues, and the public. About the Quality Café The Quality Café is a free one-hour lunch and learn series that takes place on the 3rd Wednesday of every month at 1200 PT. Each Café features a new guest and topic related to improving quality of care. Are you passionate about improving how health care is delivered? Come to Quality Café!
