Many teenagers reporting symptoms of depression

The Millenium Cohort Study shows that symptoms of depression and anxiety were similar for boys and girls up to the age of 11 (as reported by parents). However at the age of 14, the cohort shows increasing gender differences (based on both self-report and responses from parents).

How alcohol and drug treatment helps to reduce crime

There is a well-established and complex link between drugs, alcohol and crime, and in the recent years there has been a particular emphasis on the links between drug misuse and offending.

We know that people who misuse drugs are more likely to have been involved in crime, but we also know that drug treatment can help to prevent it.

Multiple illnesses and end-of-life care drive high healthcare costs in old age

Ageing on its own does not drive healthcare costs. Instead, this research found that the increasing number of health conditions and age-related impairments along with the proximity to death are more strongly linked to healthcare costs than age alone.

This UK study investigated healthcare costs in people over 80 years old. Costs increased to the mid-90s before declining again. Proximity to death was the strongest predictor of cost, which was higher for people aged 80-84: £10,027 per year versus £7,021 per year for those over 100. Multiple illnesses also had a strong influence, with each additional health complaint progressively increasing costs.

This suggests that to provide person-centred and efficient healthcare services for all, planning should take account of the number and types of conditions rather than age alone.

PHE October Bulletin

New local authority first public health dashboard 

As part of a wider government commitment to support greater transparency across the public sector, PHE has published a new local authority public health dashboard. The dashboard will support local councillors and senior council officers in making decisions on how they prioritise resources across a range of public health service areas. An initial version has been published now and suggestions will be sought on how to improve it so that we can launch it in full in the summer of 2018. It uses existing published data and therefore complements the range of tools PHE provides to support local government in their role as the local leaders for the public’s health. We hope that this dashboard will be helpful in raising the profile of public health services locally and ultimately having a positive impact on health outcomes.

This report argues that the number of specialist homes for older people will need to increase by 400,000 units in less than 20 years as a result of our ageing population.

This includes planning powers to ensure developers build quality homes and infrastructure that are well designed to support positive ageing and long term sustainable funding for councils to adapt existing homes to help support older people remain in their homes for longer and to support positive ageing.

Unmet need for care

This report, conducted in partnership with the NIHR School for Social Care Research, NatCen Social Research, Age UK and Independent Age, highlights the experiences of unmet need for care among older people living in their own homes. It finds that despite varying measures of unmet need, by any measure over half of older people with care needs have unmet needs. People eligible for local authority support as well as self-funders are affected by unmet need and those who live alone are particularly vulnerable.  Source: Ipsos Mori

Sexual And Reproductive Health: Time To Act

This report warns that years of improvement in the quality of sexual and reproductive healthcare being delivered to patients is at risk due to the bureaucratic, financial and training barriers facing GPs and practice teams. It finds that GPs fear rates of teenage pregnancy and transmission of sexually transmitted diseases will rise – reversing current trends – as vulnerable patients are being excluded from accessing the most appropriate forms of contraception, and that health inequalities are being widened as a result.  Source: Royal College of General Practitioners

Smokefree: the first ten years

This report finds that since the introduction of smokefree legislation in England ten years ago, there has been significant growth in support for this and other legislation introduced by government, particularly among smokers themselves. The results from a public opinion survey also reveals increasing public support for further measures such as a licensing scheme for tobacco retailers and a levy on the tobacco industry to pay for measures to reduce smoking prevalence.

State of caring 2017

This report finds that four in ten unpaid carers have not had a break in over one year, whilst one in four had not received a single day away from caring in five years. It also found that carers most frequently listed access to breaks as one of three factors which could make a difference in their lives (42 per cent). Carers who had not had a break in a year or more reported a deterioration in their health, both mentally (73 per cent) and physically (65 per cent). The research also charts a growing anxiety around the level of support that will be available against a backdrop of cuts to adult social care services.

Population Mental Health Promotion for Children and Youth

Mental health is a public health priority that requires competent, confident front-line staff to work in collaboration with others to build healthy and resilient communities, and engage with individuals and families to provide appropriate supports.

The six NCCs for Public Health (Canada) collaborated on a project focused on population mental health promotion for children and youth. Together, they aimed to mobilize public health knowledge and action by clarifying key concepts and exploring the public health role. The project has resulted in a collection of topical papers, alongside general resources, including background information and a resource scan, to help public health practitioners engage with the topic from a variety of perspectives.

The Population mental health promotion for children and youth collection includes:

Mental Health And New Models Of Care: Lessons From The Vanguards

While some of the vanguard sites developing new care models report promising early results from adopting a whole-person approach, the full opportunities to improve care through integrated approaches to mental health have not yet been realised. This report draws on recent research with vanguard sites in England, conducted in partnership with the Royal College of Psychiatrists. It finds that where new models of care have been used to remove the barriers between mental health and other parts of the health system, local professionals saw this as being highly valuable in improving care for patients and service users. It concludes that there remains much to be done to fully embed mental health into integrated care teams, primary care, urgent and emergency care pathways, and in work on population health.  Source: The King’s Fund

A supported web-based programme helps people lose weight in the short term

A web-based programme (POWeR) with nurse support helped about 30% of people lose at least 5% of their body weight, maintained for at least 12 months. By comparison, twenty percent of people achieved this with an online information sheet only.  This research does not tell us whether POWeR alone would have provided the same benefit

POWer+ helped more people achieve short-term weight loss but the average weight loss of about 3-4 kg after 12 months was statistically similar for those given information only. The healthy eating online materials tested had previously been shown to help people to control their weight, without expert advice.

The NHS needs low-cost weight loss programmes to tackle the burden of obesity-related disease. This NIHR research showed that the web programme, with phone or email support from nurses, had a modest benefit and was probably cost-effective.  It represents one option that could be offered to patients.

The English NHS currently has a policy of providing Health Checks to all 4074 year olds. Administered in primary care, they aim to identify patients at risk of a range of diseases, including diabetes and heart disease, and facilitate care. This study is the first to use observed data on the effectiveness of the Checks to consider whether they represent a cost-effective use of limited NHS resources. The analysis suggests that the significant health and cost-saving benefits from even a modest reduction in mean BMI, coupled with the low costs of the Checks, combine to result in a potentially highly cost-effective policy  Source: UK Health Forum
