[Training modules on climate change, heat, and health for medical assistants and nurses in outpatient care].

Bundesgesundheitsblatt Gesundheitsforschung Gesundheitsschutz 2019 Apr 17. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Institut und Poliklinik für Arbeits‑, Sozial- und Umweltmedizin, Klinikum der Universität München, LMU München, Ziemssenstraße 1, 80336, München, Deutschland.

The number of heatwaves is going to increase due to climate change and will pose a high health risk especially for elderly people. Additional risk factors like immobility, the need for care, chronic and acute diseases (worsening of symptoms), and the intake of medications lead to an increased sensitivity to heat in this particular age group. Nursing staff and medical assistants working in general practices are two important professions to reach the risk group during heatwaves and provide preventive and curative care. Read More

[Organised neighbourhood support during extreme weather events in rural areas : Using the "volunteers on-site system" to strategically adapt to crisis situations caused by climate change].

Authors:
Holger Schach

Bundesgesundheitsblatt Gesundheitsforschung Gesundheitsschutz 2019 Apr 11. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Regionalmanagement Nordhessen GmbH, Ständeplatz 13, 34117, Kassel, Deutschland.

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. The impacts are globally and regionally visible through more and more frequent extreme weather events, be they devastating storms, longer periods of cold and heat or prolonged periods of drought alternating with heavy rain and flooding. In addition to the urgent need for climate change mitigation, therefore, the question has been raised for some time as to which measures cities and municipalities, rural districts and regions can use to prepare themselves against the consequences of climate change.

Institut und Poliklinik für Arbeits‑, Sozial- und Umweltmedizin, Klinikum der Universität München, LMU München, Ziemssenstr. 1, 80336, München, Deutschland.

As part of climate change, a rise in meteorological extreme weather events (EWE) like heavy precipitation and flooding can be observed in Germany. Severe extreme events can evoke great fear and pose a risk for traumatization. These traumas and the sustained stress caused by the event may result in adverse psychological health effects.

Heidelberger Institut für Global Health, Uniklinikum Heidelberg, Im Neuenheimer Feld 130.3, 69120, Heidelberg, Deutschland.

In discussions on climate change and health, negative impacts of climate change usually dominate the discussion. However to motivate households and policy makers to climate action, one should also point out the health opportunities of climate change mitigation measures.We draw on the current literature to present the concept of health co-benefits of climate change mitigation measures (A).

Abteilung Risikokommunikation, Bundesinstitut für Risikobewertung (BfR), Max-Dohrn-Str. 8-10, 10589, Berlin, Deutschland.

Man-made climate change is associated with several weather and environmental changes that can influence the extent of certain health risks. The article gives an overview of the challenges of communicating these health risks. Theoretical considerations are linked with the results of a representative population survey, in which 1018 participants aged 14 years and above were polled about their perception of climate change and its associated health risks.

Klinik für Kinder- und Jugendmedizin, Sektion für Pädiatrische Endokrinologie und Diabetologie, Campus Lübeck, Universitätsklinikum Schleswig-Holstein, Lübeck, Deutschland.

In Germany, an increasing number of telemedical pilot projects are in the implementation phase. All these projects have in common that they continuously produce, store, and exchange highly sensitive digital data. A basic prerequisite for projects implemented in conformity with the law is a comprehensive data protection concept, especially after the introduction of the European Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) in May 2018.

Paul-Ehrlich-Institut, Bundesinstitut für Impfstoffe und biomedizinische Arzneimittel, Abteilung Virologie, Paul-Ehrlich-Straße 51-59, 63225, Langen, Deutschland.

The immunogenicity and efficacy of vaccines is largely governed by nature and the amount of antigen(s) included. Specific immune-stimulating substances, so-called adjuvants, are added to vaccine formulations to enhance and modulate the induced immune response.Adjuvants are very different in their physicochemical nature and are primarily characterized by their immune-enhancing effects.

Healthcare in inpatient long-term care facilities (nursing homes) should not be limited to medical curative measures, but should also include strengthening social participation, autonomy, self-responsibility and joint responsibility of the residents. Prevention and rehabilitation should therefore be even more integrated into care concepts.This article first introduces various areas of prevention physical activity, nutrition, cognitive competence, psychosocial health, abuse, and freedom-removing measures and then discusses their evidence.

Vaccinations are among the safest and most effective ways to prevent morbidity and mortality from severe infectious diseases - both on an individual and societal level. Despite the availability of safe and effective vaccines some people decide against vaccination, which leads to recurrent outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases. In order to achieve the common goals of eliminating certain infectious diseases and to protect individual health, it is necessary to understand the antecedents of (non-)vaccination. Read More

Abteilung für Infektionsepidemiologie, Robert Koch-Institut, Berlin, Deutschland.

The Standing Committee on Vaccination recommends adult measles and pertussis vaccination. The measles vaccine has been recommended since 2010 to adults born after 1970 with less than two doses in childhood, and an acellular pertussis vaccine (ap) since 2009 to be administered to all adults, with the next recommended decennial tetanus (T) and diphtheria (d) booster as a Tdap combination vaccine.We aim to determine the annual uptake of the measles vaccine (vaccination incidence) and its proportion in pediatric and gynecological practices as interdisciplinary services (2009-2016).

Fachgebiet Soziale Determinanten der Gesundheit, Robert Koch-Institut, General-Pape-Str. 62-66, 12101, Berlin, Deutschland.

The research findings on social differences in health and life expectancy suggest that this question has to be answered differently for different population groups. Even after the age of 65, persons with a low socioeconomic status are more likely to be affected by chronic illnesses and complaints, functional limitations of everyday activities, as well as impairments of well-being and health-related quality of life.

AOK-Bundesverband Abteilung Prävention, Rosenthaler Str. 31, 10178, Berlin, Deutschland.

With the demographic shift, the number of persons in need of long-term care is continuing to grow, as is the need for nursing care staff and specialists.

Persons in need of care and their family members should be able to realistically assess and compare the quality of care services. Recent legislation therefore states that the current procedure to assess and present care quality has to be developed further. While quality measurements can be informed by the literature, knowledge on suitable formats for presenting quality information that is suitable for care-receiving persons and their families is highly fragmentary.
