Try to see it my way: exploring the co-design of visual presentations of wellbeing through a workshop process.

Perspect Public Health 2019 Apr 8:1757913919835231. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Institute of Health and Wellbeing, Administration Building, Gartnavel Royal Hospital, Glasgow, UK.

Aims:: A 10-month project funded by the NewMind network sought to develop the specification of a visualisation toolbox that could be applied on digital platforms (web- or app-based) to support adults with lived experience of mental health difficulties to present and track their personal wellbeing in a multi-media format.

Methods:: A participant co-design methodology, Double Diamond from the Design Council (Great Britain), was used consisting of four phases: Discover - a set of literature and app searches of wellbeing and health visualisation material; Define - an initial workshop with participants with lived experience of mental health problems to discuss wellbeing and visualisation techniques and to share personal visualisations; Develop - a second workshop to add detail to personal visualisations, for example, forms of media to be employed, degree of control over sharing; and Deliver - to disseminate the learning from the exercise.

Results:: Two design workshops were held in December 2017 and April 2018 with 13 and 12 experts-by-experience involved, respectively, including two peer researchers (co-authors) and two individual-carer dyads in each workshop, with over 50% of those being present in both workshops. Read More

Climate change is predicted to have a major impact on people's lives with the recent extreme weather events and varying abnormal temperature profiles across the world raising concerns. The impacts of global warming are already being observed, from rising sea levels and melting snow and ice to changing weather patterns. Scientists state unequivocally that these trends cannot be explained by natural variability in climate alone. Read More

Perspect Public Health 2018 Nov 24;138(6):316-324. Epub 2018 Aug 24.

Health Action Campaign, London, UK.

Aims:: Previous studies have reported a high prevalence of unhealthy behaviours in the student population, which the Healthy University concept is now seeking to address, by taking a settings approach to health promotion. This study investigated how far students are already seeking to make changes to improve their health behaviour while in a university setting, to help inform the development of Healthy Universities.

Methods:: Data on student health behaviour change, health indicators and demographics were gathered from 550 students attending two London universities, via an online questionnaire released through the student union email system at one university and through iPads at a student centre at the other.

Assessing operational performance benefits of a Water Safety Plan implemented in Southwestern France.

Perspect Public Health 2018 Sep 11;138(5):270-278. Epub 2018 Jul 11.

The Water Institute at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC, USA.

Aims: The World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended Water Safety Plans (WSPs) since 2004 as a means to reduce drinking water contamination and risks to human health. These risk management programs have shown promise across several potential areas of evaluation, such as economic benefits and regulatory compliance. Since WSPs are largely carried out by people who interact with water treatment equipment and processes, operational performance indicators may be key to understanding the mechanisms behind desirable WSP impacts such as water quality and public health improvement.

Nursing Program, WHO Collaborating Centre for Nursing Education, College of Health Sciences, University of Bahrain, Zallaq, Kingdom of Bahrain.

Aims:: Amid no current estimates or correlates of geriatric depression in Bahrain and support WHO campaign 2017 'Depression-let's talk', we aimed to assess the magnitude of geriatric depression and explore its association with socio-demographic and health characteristics among the Bahrainis.

Methods:: A cross-sectional survey was carried out among the geriatric Bahrainis attending the 12 community congregations of the ministry of labor and social development in Bahrain, as well as in the community, by a convenient sampling method using a validated, shorter, Arabic version of the Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS-15 items) which is a self-report instrument to screen for clinical depression. Univariate analysis followed by a multivariate ordinal logistic regression was employed to test the associations between socio-demographic and health characteristics for geriatric depression.
