182. Float Tanks: Considerations for Environmental Public Health

Float Tanks: Considerations for Environmental Public Health JULY 2016 1 Float Tanks: Considerations for Environmental Public Health Angela Eykelbosh a and Shelley Beaudet b Key Messages • Floatation refers to a meditative activity in which users float in a high-density Epsom salt solution in a dark, quiet environment. • Because float tanks are distinct from swimming pools and other recreational water, questions have been raised regarding the need for and efficacy of various disinfection methods (...) Although floating is meant to improve physical and mental health, public health practitioners have questioned whether improperly operated float tanks may pose a health risk. Due to the cost of replacing the salt, the tank solution is typically only changed a few times per year and disinfection practice varies. Also, although there is a long history of regulation and management for pools and hot tubs, float tanks are currently unregulated in most jurisdictions and guidance on management is limited

Power to the people: To what extent has public involvement in applied health research achieved this? Public involvement is required for applied health research funded in the UK. One of the largest funders, the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR), makes it clear that it values the knowledge of patients and the public. As a result, there are now many resources to make sure that the public voice is included in decision-making about research. However, there is concern that the public voice (...) in research decision-making. However, there is less evidence of a change in the power dynamic between the scientific research community and the public. The public involved in research are not always equal partners. The scientific research community still has the loudest voice and patients and the public do not always feel sufficiently empowered to challenge it.Public involvement in applied health research is a pre-requisite for funding from many funding bodies. In particular the National Institute

191. Managing the public-private mix to achieve universal health coverage. (Abstract)

Managing the public-private mix to achieve universal health coverage. The private sector has a large and growing role in health systems in low-income and middle-income countries. The goal of universal health coverage provides a renewed focus on taking a system perspective in designing policies to manage the private sector. This perspective requires choosing policies that will contribute to the performance of the system as a whole, rather than of any sector individually. Here we draw (...) and extrapolate main messages from the papers in this Series and additional sources to inform policy and research agendas in the context of global and country level efforts to secure universal health coverage in low-income and middle-income countries. Recognising that private providers are highly heterogeneous in terms of their size, objectives, and quality, we explore the types of policy that might respond appropriately to the challenges and opportunities created by four stylised private provider types

Initially reserved to the political class and social activists, the call for action on firearms has reached a fever pitch as it has become more visible to the general public. While the debate and consideration of the right to possess firearms and ammunition is best left to legal authorities and Constitutional scholars, the over 30,000 annual deaths by firearm must at least prompt the consideration of gun violence as a significant public health concern.

Emerging Zika virus disease: a public health emergency of global concern Infectious diseases remain a leading source of human morbidity and mortality. Recently, emerging infectious diseases are dominated by zoonoses, and eventually rising considerably. Their emergence is dependent on various factors especially, socioeconomic, environmental and ecological factors etc. Recently, the swift spread of Zika virus (ZIKV) through the Americas, simultaneously with the association of infection (...) with microcephaly and Guillain-Barré syndrome, has strained this previously overlooked virus into the global attention. ZIKV is an emerging mosquito-borne Flavivirus, identified in rhesus monkey in 1947 in Uganda, and eventually in human in 1952. Considering the severity and recent spread over Americas, it has been declared as a public health emergency of international concern, and expected number of cases may be around three to four million. Therefore, it's important for all to assess the risk and be prepared

Current policy and regulations are not considered. For the most part, the environmental and public health implications relating to shale gas production also apply to other types of unconventional natural gas production using hydraulic fracturing, including that of tight gas and coal bed methane. Basic descriptions and definition of terms for shale gas production and the hydraulic fracturing process are provided in the NCCEH summary “Overview

This commentary reflects on a new theoretical model of obesity (i.e. Homeostatic Theory of Obesity proposed by Marks), and calls for additional research to examine biopsychosocial factors that may be of importance in developing interventions that promote long-term maintenance of weight loss and in developing obesity (...) prevention programs. Furthermore, we discuss the role of socioeconomic factors in obesity and call for interdisciplinary efforts to address obesity risk factors in the interest of public health.
