  • 2020 № 4 Training in clinical recommendations and assessment of the level of knowledge of doctors involved in providing primary health care, using remote educational technologies

    The implementation of clinical recommendations is an urgent task, and it is important to maintain continuity between primary health care and specialized medical care. Distance learning courses were developed for 25 modules, and a testing system was created, which was implemented during the training of 1928 doctors from 128 medical organizations in three regions. The purpose of the work was to analyze and evaluate the effectiveness of the developed and implemented set of measures for training and testing doctors in three regions of Russia who participate in primary health care, on the implemen- tation of clinical recommendations.
    Data analysis was performed using the IBM SPSS Statistics 16 software package. The samples were checked for the normality of the distribution using the Kolmogorov-Smirnov method. A nonparametric Wilcoxon test for dependent samples was used to assess the statistical significance of differences in cases where the distribution in the samples differs from the normal one. The level of statistical significance was defined as p ≤ 0.05.
    The program of work consisted of five stages and included the development and implementation of distance courses in the format of multimedia lectures for doctors providing primary health care, studying a number of clinical recommendations, as well as conducting primary and repeated testing with automated evaluation of results for groups of clinical recommendations at the level of the region, medical organization and specific doctor.
    The original software made it possible to evaluate the initial and received level of knowledge, to get differentiated results online, and on this basis to give reasonable targeted recommendations for further training of a particular employee, as well as for planning training events in the region as a whole.
    The developed methodology of distance learning cycles allows to provide training of a significant number of doctors in a rel- atively short time with operational control of the quality of knowledge of doctors of various specialties, which is why the tested system can be easily scaled and adapted to solve any problems to improve professional competence of doctors.

  • 2020 № 3 Improving the regulatory and legal framework for delivering primary health care to the population in the field of non-communicable diseases prevention and the implementation of a healthy lifestyle standardization

    In order to prevent non-communicable diseases and carry out measures to model a healthy lifestyle, the article proposes changes to the regulatory and legal framework for delivering primary health care and primary specialized health care, including the introduction of a position of a physician for common hygiene in medical organizations. It is proposed to introduce additions to the nomenclature of medical services provided. There was developed a section of occupational standards program “Specialist in hygiene”, on the job functions of a physician for common hygiene. It is proposed to include in the job functions of a physician for common hygiene the diagnostic testing in health centers in order to assess the functional reserves and adaptive capabilities of a person affected by adverse environmental factors, and the prescribing appropriate curative and preventive measures. Implementation of the proposed activities in the health centers will improve the efficiency of medical and preventive work of medical organizations and reduce the level of uncertainty of preventive activities carried out, and of the expected results of preventive work carried out by a therapist and a general practitioner (family doctor). The proposed changes will help to identify causal relationships between the health status of the population and the impact of adverse environmental factors, to form risk groups among adult population in accordance with diagnostic criteria of risk factors and other pathological conditions and diseases associated with the impact of adverse environmental factors that increase the likelihood of developing of chronic non-communicable diseases in risk groups, if there are diagnostic criteria of risk factors to send the indigent to health organization for in-depth examination and carrying out the necessary medical and preventive measures, to prepare research and information materials and to participate in hygiene education, to promote healthy lifestyles and to improve health literacy of population.

  • 2018 № 8 Modern approaches to organization of care to persons of elderly and senile age: a review of international experience

    The research is devoted to the study of international experience in organizing care for people of older age groups. The analysis of literature data has shown that the organization of care for patients of elderly and senile age varies considerably in different countries, reflecting their specific economic, social, cultural conditions. At the same time, the use of structured questionnaires for assessing the health status and social well-being of older people becomes a common approach, making it possible to organize targeted assistance to such patients in the most rational way.
