AUNDECK OMNI KANING—With their current police agreement due for renewal soon and statistics that show a 600% increase over the past year in drug warrants, arrests and seizures of drugs and weapons, not to mention other increases in crime statistics, the U.S. Chiefs and Councils of the Manitoulin Anishnaabe Police Service are pushing for increased funding for additional personnel.

“We are all facing the same big problems that major police departments in southern Ontario and other regions are seeing,” UCCM APS Chief of Police James Killeen said at the annual meeting of the police last week. However, “they have the human resources to deal with gangs, for example, but we don’t. We have a very good relationship with the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and Wiikwemkoong Tribal Police and we meet a lot and work very well together.

“The Ontario Provincial Police recognizes the issues facing all of our police services and is trying to recruit more staff,” said Chief Killeen. He explained that UCCM’s APS is in its final year of the policing agreement, “and we have been and will be pushing for more funding and more officers. Our officers are doing a tremendous job. , but we don’t have enough agents to fully care for all of our communities.

“I’ve been here for a year and a half and our department has seen incredible changes. It has been a very difficult year,” the police chief said. “Our police services have been hit hard by the pandemic from the perspective of officers and civilian officers as well. “I never thought I would ever see a world where everyone would be forced to get vaccinated. And that has created a divide in communities between those who are for and those who are against vaccination.”

UCCM’s APS covers six First Nations communities in the Manitoulin Island area (Wiikwemkoong is covered by its own local police department). “A lot of things, including COVID, have played into the significant increase we’ve seen in drug cases and charges,” Police Chief Killeen said. “I could see the changes over a long period of time even before these problems hit the island.”

The Chief of Police said UCCM APS currently has 21 officers and they are pushing to double that number to provide at least four platoons of 6-7 officers on duty at a time and increase from two sergeants to four. “In my 23 years in the force, I have never seen an officer called back after his shift. Here, when a homicide took place, calls went out for help and everyone came in. We need to be comparable to larger police departments and we need the staff and resources they have.

Over the last 15 months and in statistics for 2021, Police Chief Killeen said: “Drug trafficking has increased by almost 700%, and we have already surpassed that figure in 2022. There are a lot of problems.

In trying to bring drug charges and other related charges, “we need to have the information and the people on the inside who know what’s going on, to provide that information,” Police Chief Killeen said. “When the recent homicide took place, we went to various community meetings and the police came under heavy criticism,” Police Chief Killeen continued. He explained that the problem was “we knew the person was selling drugs, but to get an arrest warrant, we need people who have information about what’s going to happen, saying, for example, that on this date and at this time, someone is selling drugs at this address in a community.

In addition to addressing the drug problem in communities and the need for more staffing of police departments, another major issue facing police departments is that of mental health. “Just six months before I arrived here on the island, a police officer (Constable Marc Hovingh of the Ontario Provincial Police) was murdered,” the police chief said. “The officers on the island know each other and the members of their community. When something like this happens, it affects everyone on the police staff team. They’re starting to think that if it can happen to Marc, it can happen to me. This is a shock to everyone and it has affected a lot of officers and members of the staff team.

“And then we had one of our employees, Steve Newbold, who died on the job,” Police Chief Killeen said. “He was a huge help to us, and we’re still recovering from that.”

The police chief said the Indigenous Chiefs of Police of Ontario (IPCO) commissioned a study to examine the effects of policing and the mental health of all personnel. There were four main findings from the study. Based on these findings, 27 recommendations were made to address the gaps. UCCM APS shared the results with staff and had a session with Meredith Brown of Calibrate, who wrote the mental health report, and a meeting was held in Garden River to review the study. “We continue to advocate for our staff to address mental health.”

“As we respond to the mental health needs of our employees, we are also looking for ways to respond to mental health calls within our communities. We have many recurring calls for service, sometimes with the same people, and alcohol sometimes exacerbating the situation,” Police Chief Killeen said. “To that end, we have been successful in our application to address mental health. We have received funding from SOLGEN to hire two mental health workers who will be on staff to assist/accompany agents on mental health calls. We will also be hiring/hiring a mental health clinician who can make direct referrals if needed. This project is called Mino Bmaadziwin.

“As the organization grows, we need more staff with specialized skills. We saw three new civilians join the team last year: a community mobilization assistant, a human resources administrator and a finance/IT coordinator. As we continue to implement new technology and address staffing shortages on the operations side, we are returning the law clerk to a civilian position and separating the finance and IT positions as the load increases. workload is increasing, especially for IT,” he continued.

“On the operations side, we’ve added a Detective Sergeant who works alongside our two Detective Constables in the Crime Unit,” the police chief continued.

“I want to thank our staff, our police commission, our leaders and our communities. We need you to continue to work with us for the good of our future generations. Kudos also to all of our community policing partners. We are community wellness partners,” added Police Chief Killeen.

Breastfeeding is important for babies, mothers, other birth parents and families. Many families start breastfeeding but are often unable to achieve their goals due to a lack of support. The Polk-Norman-Mahnomen Community Health Services WIC (PNM WIC) program supports families before and during their infant feeding journey by talking about the importance of breastmilk, providing supplemental foods to meet the nutritional needs of a breastfeeding parent and providing resources to help families achieve their infant feeding goals.

“A support system can be the key to successful breastfeeding, especially when the journey is tough. WIC is there for families every step of the way, starting with pregnancy,” said Tammy Conn, coordinator of the breastfeeding for PNM WIC “We provide additional food benefits to pregnant and breastfeeding parents, but our support goes beyond food. Whether it’s working with a WIC lactation specialist, connecting with a WIC Breastfeeding Peer Counselor or connect to other resources in your community, WIC can help you in many ways.

National Breastfeeding Month

PNM WIC and the Minnesota WIC Program celebrate National Breastfeeding Month and World Breastfeeding Week by asking eligible families to apply for WIC (https://redcap.health.state.mn. us/redcap/surveys/?s=LNKN377EPE) early in pregnancy and seek counseling and support early and often during their infant feeding journey for the best possible results.

To celebrate World Breastfeeding Week, August 1-7, local breastfeeding support group, Mama’s Milk Connection, will be hosting a special event, “Party at the Playground,” on August 4, from 5:30 p.m. at 7:00 p.m., at the Valley Community Service Center Tri-Playground (Head Start), 1407 Erskine Street, Crookston. Pregnant and nursing families are welcome to enjoy a meal at the Baked Potato Bar, along with entertainment, games and fellowship.

WIC supports families

The PNM WIC program supports breastfeeding in any quantity and is there for families who feed their babies a combination of breastmilk and formula and families who use formula exclusively. The nationwide formula recall and shortage is stressful for parents and future parents. Ways we can help you:

  • Apply for WIC (https://redcap.health.state.mn.us/redcap/surveys/?s=LNKN377EPE) early in pregnancy.
  • Contact a WIC Breastfeeding Specialist or PNM WIC Peer Counselor for breastfeeding information and support. Creating a plan before birth and seeking help as soon as possible after birth can lead to successful breastfeeding.
  • Attend regular monthly Mama’s Milk Connection meetings on the 3rd Thursday of the month, 6-7 p.m. Call 218-281-1673 for meeting information and location.
  • WIC can help parents get back to work. Minnesota has strengthened its law to protect pregnant and nursing parents in the workplace. Learn more about the change and other WIC breastfeeding resources (https://www.health.state.mn.us/people/wic/bf/morebflinks.html).
  • WIC provides formula benefits to supplement breastfeeding when needed and can provide advice to increase milk supply for parents using a combination of breast milk and formula.

Peer Breastfeeding Program

Breastfeeding Peer Support Program (https://www.health.state.mn.us/docs/people/wic/localagency/reports/bf/info/2022peer.pdf) is available to serve 15% more WIC families statewide this year with four new programs. Some existing peer programs also increased their capacity this year. The program features parents with personal experience breastfeeding their own children, who are recruited from the communities they serve and trained to help WIC participants with common breastfeeding issues. Since 2016, WIC families in Polk-Norman-Mahnomen have been offered a breastfeeding peer counselor. The onset of pregnancy is the perfect time for mother and peer to start the conversation about breastfeeding. The peer can share educational breastfeeding tips along the way. It becomes easy to talk/text your friend, ask questions and share your successes while getting help along the way.

Additional WIC statistics

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) – Birmingham City School officials are seeing an increase in the number of children with mental health issues since the pandemic and leaders are working to provide them with more services and resources.

Birmingham City Schools and Alabama Regional Medical Services now offer free medical and mental health services to students at seven different schools.

It’s an in-school clinic at Wenonah High School that these new students can use for free. Superintendent Dr Mark Sullivan said the clinic was a success in high school and he knew it would be for other students. Sullivan said he saw 200 students and 38% were seen for mental health issues. He said that according to school data, these additional schools have a high medical and financial need for assistance.

Hayes K-8, Washington K-8, Green Acres Middle, Carver High, Huffman High and Brown K-5 all have access to services now.

He says that since the pandemic, more students are showing signs of mental health issues, including in elementary schools, and he wants to help before the problem gets worse.

“People think mental health is about kids doing things, but it’s not,” he said. “It’s anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, so it gives us an opportunity to really address those needs on the pitch. I think that’s a game changer.

The clinic will have nurse practitioners and social workers and will also provide basic medical care and visual and hearing aids.

With the successful integration of more than 50 digital health applications, the National Health Authority (NHA) announced the expansion of the digital health ecosystem established under its flagship program, the Digital Mission Ayushman Bharat (ABDM).

In the past two months, 12 more healthcare applications have completed their multi-stage integration into the ABDM sandbox environment.

According to reports, these applications have been included in the ABDM Partners ecosystem after a successful demonstration. Currently, there are 32 requests from the private sector and 20 from the government.

ABDM integrations are performed through ABDM Sandbox (a digital experimentation space created to test integration processes before the digital health product is released for real-world use).

Any digital health service provider or developer can register with ABDM Sandbox by following a predefined process of integrating and validating their software systems with ABDM APIs.

People in cities and urban areas across the country are not getting proper reproductive health and nutrition services due to scarcity of infrastructure, insufficient manpower, according to a study report revealed on Thursday. and misallocation.

The National Institute of Population Research and Training study indicated that eight out of 12 municipal corporations and five out of 30 municipalities under the seat of the upazila were taken as a sample for the study and found to lack of health institutions.

“None of the municipalities covered by the study found a doctor while 80% of the total health service positions remained vacant,” said the study conducted in February by the Institute of Health Economics of the University of Dhaka.

Professor Syed Abdul Hamid of the institute, also a researcher, said there was a government health department healthcare network in rural areas, but there was no such structure in urban areas because local government agencies – municipality and municipal corporation – were mandated. providing health services to people living in urban areas. In Bangladesh, there are 330 municipalities and 12 municipal corporations including two in Dhaka, one in Chattogram, Sylhet, Rajshahi, Khulna, Rangpur and Barishal.

Referring to World Bank data, Prof. Hamid said that the urban population of Bangladesh was growing rapidly over the years and hence a strong health service was needed for the people living there.

According to a World Bank study, the urban population is expected to represent 60% of the total population by 2030, compared to 38% in 2020.

“Health outcomes in urban areas, in general, are quite poor, which poses a challenge for the achievement of universal health coverage in Bangladesh,” he said.

The study identified a number of obstacles, including lack of coordination between health services and local government, as well as inadequate facilities.

NIPORT recommended that the Department of Health and Family Welfare lead health services for all people, wherever they live.

To ensure the health service in urban areas, the support of local government is needed, he said.

Md Sharfuddin Ahmed, Vice Chancellor of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University, said the local government institutes provide project-based health services which also have a huge contribution to health care.

He explained that the local government’s Ekti Bari, Ekti Khamar project had a very positive impact on the nutrition of the beneficiaries.

The Managing Director of NIPORT, Md Shahjahan, and other officials were present at, among others, the launch event of the report held at CIRDAP.

Auckland, New Zealand and TEL AVIV, Israel, July 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The cliniciana global digital health innovator, has partnered with one of the world’s largest HMOs and Israel’s largest healthcare organization, Clalit Health Services, through its innovation arm – Clalit Innovation, to develop and deploy digital healthcare journeys across their 4.8 million patients, 20,000 clinicians, 1,500 community clinics and 14 hospitals. These pathways will enable the collection and analysis of important health data provided by patients in the community to improve the safety and quality of care provided.

The partnership aims to provide patients with a convenient, digital way to report their condition at home or in the community. It will also provide healthcare providers with the data they need to measure, analyze and improve care from the patient’s perspective. Using patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) to capture the patient’s perspective, these medically validated health assessments will allow individuals to report on important health outcomes, including quality of life, symptom burden, physical function and mental health.

Clalit will deploy The Clinician’s digital health platform, ZEDOC, initially to patients with hip and knee osteoarthritis and mental health (depression and anxiety).

Professor Ran Balicer, Chief Innovation Officer at Clalit Health Services and Founding Director of the Clalit Research Institute, shared: “Focus on patient-reported outcomes across the care cycle strengthens their ability to make informed choices about their care and enables providers to improve the quality and effectiveness of care delivered.”

“Clalit Hospitals perform nearly 1000 knee replacement surgeries per year and about 350 hip replacement surgeries per year, i.e. planned surgeries for which PROMs are performed. Here, the platform allows patients to use data accumulated and combined to assess their options and help them understand their recovery rates based on the treatment they choose.Making an informed, data-based decision will allow patients to avoid choosing treatments with low benefit to them and instead increase the choice of treatments that will prove to be very beneficial. explains Dr. Orly Weinstein, vice-president and head of the Hospitals division of Clalit.

To ensure that all health outcome data collected from patients at home can be viewed directly by clinical teams in their patients’ electronic medical record (EMR), The Clinician will integrate ZEDOC with health information systems. of Clalit via Clalit’s IT and digital division. Liora SchechterVP of the IT & Digital Division of Clalit shared: “The platform will be able to stream the data collected directly to medical records, and will allow healthcare teams to access this new information which will improve the actions carried out.

ZEDOC, combined with Clalit’s existing treatment and care data, enables the calculation of a world’s first value metric. This metric is the foundation of value-based models of care and will measure the benefits of healthcare services as reported by patients themselves against the cost.

The intention is to develop innovative digital care journeys for Clalit that will extend the reach of their healthcare services beyond traditional clinical settings and enable the integration of patient-reported health outcomes with cost data, and compared to their entire organization,” says Dr. Ron Tenenbaum, co-founder and CEO of The Clinician. “By working with the Clalit team to analyze their existing service utilization and cost data against the health outcomes achieved, we believe we will be able to develop a world-class healthcare model. based on value.”
