New heart failure services to be brought into Donegal communities

first_imgA Heart Failure Integrated Service is on the way for Donegal communities after the proposal was granted a share of the €20m Sláintecare Integration Fund.The new service will focus on community care and integrating the services at Letterkenny University Hospital (LUH) with the services provided by the Community Healthcare Organisation 1 (CHO1) in Donegal.The new service will comprise two teams of nurses who specialise in treating patients with heart failure – both teams will be split between the hospital and the community to ensure a seamless journey for patients in and out of hospital.  The new service will also include a cardiac physiologist based 80% of the time in the community and 20% of the time in LUH. The service will support the early diagnosis of heart failure by providing community clinics where patients can access echocardiograms; improved access to consultant cardiologist support for GPs; education of patients and families in caring for someone with heart failure; and fast-tracking patients who need urgent assessment.Cathy Farrell, Heart Failure Clinical Nurse Specialist at Letterkenny University Hospital said, “Heart failure is the most common reason for older people to need a hospital stay and these patients often require a lengthy stay in hospital. “We know from research that when patients have access to a structured Heart Failure Programme – like what we are proposing – then they are less likely to need hospitalisation and will have a better quality of life. Also, if GPs are able to refer their patients for echocardiograms in the community, they are able to reduce the number of patients who need to be referred to the hospital to see a consultant for diagnosis.”Seán Murphy, General Manager, Letterkenny University Hospital said, “Around 3,200 people in Donegal have a diagnosis of heart failure and the same number again have asymptomatic left ventricular dysfunction which means they are at risk of developing heart failure.  “Currently the majority of these patients have to be seen by a consultant in the hospital to get a diagnosis and this may involve a lengthy wait. The proposed Heart Failure Integrated Service for Donegal will integrate the care from the hospital with the care from the community and this will mean faster diagnosis and a better experience for patients by providing services closer to home.”The Chief Officer, for CHO 1, Mr John Hayes welcomed the Sláintecare Integration funding stating, “This project will aid in enhancing and developing services for patients across Donegal.  It will aid in the delivery of quality healthcare to the most vulnerable in our health system. I look forward to working with the project team in the implementation of this initiative.”  New heart failure services to be brought into Donegal communities was last modified: September 27th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:heart failure integrationHSEslaintecarelast_img read more

Society ‘must help tackle alcohol abuse’

first_img23 September 2011 Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini has called on families, communities and civil society to help in the fight against alcohol abuse. Addressing journalists during a post-Cabinet briefing in Cape Town on Thursday, Dlamini said it was not acceptable for taverns to be located near churches or schools. She said the government was concerned that teachers sometimes bought alcohol from those taverns, and that they also made it easier for pupils to bring alcohol to school. Dlamini said the government was sticking to its plans to increase the age restriction for accessing alcohol by young people from 18 to 21 years. She said that at 21 years, one would be more mature than an 18-year-old. Dlamini said that while there were people making a living out of taverns, there were more whose lives were being destroyed by alcohol consumption. She said that Cabinet had approved a programme of action to deal with substance abuse. This, she said, included various departments coming up with policies to deal with the problem. The government will launch Social Development Month in Mokgopong in Limpopo province on 4 October. Activities are being organised under the theme, “Working together to build caring and sustainable communities.” The Cabinet also wished the country’s matriculants good luck ahead of the their final examinations, which start within the next 30 days, and urged South Africans to support pupils during this time of the year.

From Plaintiff to Partner: PicApp’s Photographers Embrace WordPress

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Early this morning PicApp announced a partnership with Automattic and integration with WordPress. More than 7.5 million publishers on WordPress’ hosted service will gain access to 20 million stock images from services like Getty, Corbis and Jupiter Images. The one caveat with these images is that there is advertising embedded in them. While the blogosphere continues to debate the depth of image content, the true significance of the announcement is rooted in the fact that a new era of collaboration is upon us. In the past, photography sites have looked to PicApp’s Israeli parent company PicScout to monitor the web for copyright infringements. Once infringers were identified, rights owners would serve DMCA takedown notices to bloggers and small publishers. Today’s partnership with one of the world’s top blogging platform casts aside this adversarial approach and gives bloggers the respect they deserve as legitimate publishers, influencers and even partners.As covered by ReadWriteWeb in the past, PicApp has made efforts to differentiate itself from its parent copyright monitoring company. The company continues to collaborate with bloggers through its image sharing platform in exchange for links back to photography sites and advertisements. Since 2007, the company has signed a slew of new publishers and significantly increased its content. While some bloggers may grumble that the advertising is unsightly, there’s no denying that these simple embed codes shave precious minutes off a post. PicApp offers great quality photographs and automatic attribution and legal clearance. For professional bloggers this service can be a lifesaver for breaking news.
