Rep. Pascrell and several other lawmakers announce the Firefighter Cancer Registry Act. The bill would monitor and study the relationship between career-long exposure to dangerous fumes and toxins and the incidence of cancer in firefighters to determine if there is a link, and to develop better protective gear and prevention techniques. A 2013 National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health study found that firefighters have a 14 percent increased risk of dying from cancer compared to the general population. This makes cancer the leading cause of line of duty deaths among firefighters. Rep. Pascrell and Rep. Richard Hanna (R-NY) introduced the Firefighter Cancer Registry Act to establish a specialized national cancer registry to improve collection infrastructure and research activities related to monitoring and studying cancer incidence among firefighters. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) introduced bipartisan companion legislation along with Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and 11 other cosponsors. The registry would improve collection capabilities and activities related to the nationwide monitoring of cancer incidence among all firefighters – career and volunteer. Specifically, the registry would: • Store and consolidate epidemiological information submitted by healthcare professionals related to cancer incidence among firefighters. • Make de-identified data available to public health researchers to provide them with robust and comprehensive datasets to expand groundbreaking research. • Improve our understanding of cancer incidence and could potentially lead to the development of more sophisticated safety protocols and safeguards as more data is collected. • To ensure the effectiveness of the registry, its administrators would be required to consult regularly with epidemiologists, public health experts, clinicians, and firefighters. The bill has strong support from several major fire organizations, including the National Volunteer Fire Council, the International Association of Fire Chiefs, the International Association of Fire Fighters, the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs, the Congressional Fire Services Institute, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, the International Fire Services Training Association, the Professional Firefighters Association of New Jersey, and the New Jersey State Firefighters’ Mutual Benevolent Association.

At the Brooklyn Center fire station crews need to be ready in a flash. A call can come at any time, which is why the city is changing hours for its two-person duty crew. Instead of working from 6 p.m. to 5:30 a.m., the two-person crew will work from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. "It's covering calls when we need them the most," said Jeremy Hulke, Brooklyn Center Fire Chief. "We're getting the truck out the door at a good time between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m." So far the new hours appear to be paying dividends. Last week there was a fire and Brooklyn Center officials believe they saved five minutes of response times getting to the blaze. Crews battled the fire in frigid cold and every minute counted as responders rushed to the scene. "It allowed for our truck to get out of the station that much sooner to get to the fire to get set up and to see what had happened there," Hulke said. These new hours began in December, and according to Hulke, reduced man power overnight has had no affect on those calls. However, in the fluid world of emergency response, hours are always subject to change. "Depending on how the calls work, the response times and such, we may need to move it in any direction," Hulke said. "It's always something that needs to be evaluated and constantly looked at." Hulke says there is more to firefighting than fighting fires. He estimates that 60 percent of their calls are medical responses, and these new hours should improve that facet of the job.

Typically, the pain associated with PAD is described as a deep muscular ache in the muscle of the back of the calf. Because the pain is related to reduced blood flow to the muscle, it arises only after walking a certain distance and resolves after standing still for a few minutes. Diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol and a history of smoking are risk factors for PAD. We can help! Our experts excel in the diagnosis and treatment of PAD. Screening for PAD is performed by checking pulses in the legs and performing a simple blood pressure measurement called an ankle-brachial index (ABI). If the screening is abnormal, an ultrasound can be used to locate the narrowing in the artery. Sometimes a walking program or medication is all that is needed to improve symptoms. Other times, bypass surgery or minimally-invasive techniques (angioplasty) are advised, and our award-winning vascular team excels in both. Are you at risk for PAD? Take this quick quiz! Do you have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes? Have you ever suffered a heart attack, angina, stroke or mini-stroke? Do you have a family history of heart disease or stroke? Do you smoke now, or have you had a heavy smoking habit previously? Are you over 65 years old? Do the calf muscles in your legs ache when you walk? Have you ever had a foot or ankle wound that took over 2 months to heal? If you answered yes to 3 or more of these questions, you should consider vascular screening.

I support the Health Services Amendment (Paramedics) Bill 2015, which will make it an offence for a person to use the title "paramedic" if they do not hold the required qualifications. It is essential for anyone who calls themselves a paramedic to be a trained, qualified paramedic. Our paramedics need the support of our legislation and Government. They also need our gratitude for the important work they do. But, ultimately, this amendment is symbolic. Although the bill supports paramedics by respecting their training and qualifications by making it illegal to pretend to be one, I find myself longing for another amendment that would make it illegal for someone to pretend to be a Minister for Health without actually delivering any services. I believe anyone who calls themselves the Minister for Health should show commitment and keep promises about building desperately needed hospitals and ambulance stations. The Government has stripped so many resources from paramedics that many people believe it is now faster for them to make their own way to hospital. Worse still, people who make their own way to hospital often find a lack of beds when they get there. On 7 March 2013 at 5.30 a.m. Michael Johnson of Rutherford called an ambulance for his wife, Paula, who was in her sixties. She had awoken with severe dizziness and vomiting. They were unable to get an ambulance to come to them and so Mr Johnson, who had a broken foot, was forced to drive his wife to the hospital, where she was rushed to the emergency department and underwent five hours of tests and treatment. How dangerous was it for an injured man in his sixties to drive his wife, who had symptoms that could have been indicative of stroke, to the hospital? It is disgraceful. Why would someone be forced to do that? The answer is clear: There are not enough paramedics—not even in name only—and when people get to hospital there are not enough beds. Across New South Wales health resources are stretched beyond belief. In response to public need, paramedics are working on their days off to fill gaps in rosters and doing long hours of overtime. Maitland Hospital was declared code red over the most recent Christmas period yet in 4½ years the Government has not added one bed to that hospital. When Mr Johnson arrived at the hospital early on that morning in 2013 he was told there was only one ambulance crew working in Maitland—from Rutherford—that night. At the time there were no plans to increase staffing levels. A survey then undertaken by the Maitland Mercury indicated that approximately 93 per cent of people in my electorate believe ambulance services in and around Maitland are inadequate for our population. The Government said at the time that it did not intend to increase the capacity of our Ambulance Service to employ more paramedics. However, it has since bowed to community pressure and finally agreed to look at building a second local ambulance station. During the recent election campaign the Government committed to build this station and provided the costings. But we cannot find a line item in the budget papers that aligns with that commitment or meets that need. I have requested a briefing from the Minister's office on this and other health issues in my electorate but I have received no response. A new hospital and a new ambulance station are needed desperately in my electorate. They have been promised but not delivered. All we get are the Minister’s media releases, lip-service and promises of planning but no action. She takes no action; she is Minister in name only. Maitland has been promised this new hospital for five years. I remind those opposite that during those same five years the electorate was represented by a member of the Liberal Party. In Labor's last term of office a $10 million upgrade to the Maitland Hospital emergency department was undertaken and that funding delivered 13 new treatment spaces, 12 new beds and 300 jobs during the construction phase. So far this Government has promised us an incredible shrinking hospital. It has ranged in size from being a John Hunter Hospital of 630 beds to a tertiary hospital of 550 beds, including a teaching function. It was to be an additional resource to Maitland Hospital's existing 188 beds. The best-case scenario was that potential bed numbers in my community would increase to 820. That is a great idea for a community that grows by an extra five people every day. Unfortunately, it has remained just that: an idea. During community consultations in early 2014 the Government promised everything: a blank cheque and whatever services people wanted. We must recognise that paramedics are highly qualified, and we should treat them as such. That is the point of the bill. We should ensure that promises about health deliver good outcomes for our community.….

The passage of the 21st Century Cures Act has drawn both applause and criticism. A sweeping bipartisan effort with multiple components, the law dramatically boosts funding for medical research, particularly in areas such as cancer and brain disease. The law also relaxes regulatory processes for pharmaceuticals and medical devices. In doing so, the law’s supporters point to the potential for faster treatments benefiting from a streamlined approval process. Critics raise concerns that safety and efficacy might be compromised, with potentially devastating consequences. And the law also has been questioned for failing to explicitly address high drug prices, a growing public issue. These debates are unfolding as the Trump administration is expected to imminently announce its choice for a new FDA commissioner, who will head an agency directly impacted by the Cures act. In this Forum, experts will explore the implications of the law for biomedicine, regulation, pharmaceuticals and patient advocacy.

In this video press release, Assembly members Reed Gusciora (D-Mercer) and Dr. Joan M. Voss (D-Bergen) discuss their legislation to make access to marijuana legal for patients suffering from terminal or debilitating illnesses. Under the "New Jersey Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act" (A-804), a patient diagnosed by their doctor as having a certain type of debilitating medical condition - such as cancer, glaucoma, HIV, AIDS, seizures, muscle spasms and multiple sclerosis - would able to receive a maximum of tow ounces of medical marijuana per month through a state registry system, with approval from a physician. The measure would protect the individuals from arrest, prosecution and penalty when using the drug in their homes as part of a medical treatment. The measure, which passed both Houses of the Legislature on January 11, now heads to the Governor, who may sign it, veto it or modify it in the form of a conditional veto.

Royal College of Nursing finds nurse staff shortages at 'DANGEROUS' levels: . Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMtH1EKO6mlI2r1CQgtOw6A?sub_confirmation=1 Despite this, 44 per cent said no action was taken when they raised concerns.The study, Nursing On The Brink, is released today at Royal College of Nursing’s annual congress in Belfast. The college is to use its findings to launch calls for new safe staffing legislation across the country – pointing to the 43, shortfall of nurses across the .It comes alongside a YouGov survey carried out for the college which revealed two-thirds of people think there are currently not enough nurses to care safely for patients.One in three respondents also argued recruiting more nurses should be the top priority for government funding. Related articles In her keynote speech to the 4, nursing staff attending the RCN’s congress, chief executive Janet Davies will say: “This situation could have been avoided. We warned this would happen but were called scaremongers. This is a failure of politicians and policy- makers, with an inability to recognise the value of nursing, an unwillingness to listen to those who are working in the service and a lack of political will to address it.“We cannot repeat this often enough: mortality levels increase when the level of registered nurses falls.”Ms Davies will add: “The current shortages are not only dangerous but a vicious circle too. Poor staffing levels are the number one reason for working-age nurses leaving the [nursing] register.”In the report, staff described patients having to wait for treatment, having no access to pain relief, toilet or washing facilities, with nurses having no time to help prevent bed sores, ulcers and infections.One staff member complained of red tape, adding: “I am not sure if I want to stay in nursing...the care I give is compromised by paperwork (which) is onerous, repetitive and doesn’t facilitate care planning.”The RCN’s call for -wide safe staffing legislation follows its introduction in Wales in 216.It places a legal duty on health boards to employ enough nurses, and act on failures.A Department of Health spokesman said: “From this year we will train 25 per cent more nurses, are committed to helping them work more flexibly to improve their work/life balance and have awarded pay rises backed by the RCN.” #RoyalCollege, #Nursing, #finds, #nurse, #staff, #shortages, #DANGEROUS, #levels

America (like most other countries) has suffered from a disconnect between the 42 million people who grow food in home and community gardens (often more than they can use) and the 50 million Americans (including 1 in 4 kids under the age of six) who don’t have enough food. This has contributed to a staggering amount of food waste, a growing epidemic of childhood obesity and Type II diabetes, and an increase in the waste stream and climate change gas emissions – not to speak of higher costs for the community and the country. Learn how technology can help move solutions from government to the local level, what lessons learned from the inner workings of the Internet have actually been applied to our food distribution network, and about the challenges faced by disruptive solutions in philanthropy. Meet the CNN Hero/TEDx speaker (introduced by Vint Cerf) who founded AmpleHarvest.org, a one of a kind five year old non-profit that has moved hunger into the cloud by functioning as a Google for the American food bank/pantry network. Built around Google Maps engine and other Google cloud tools, AmpleHarvest.org has created a highly efficient system that connects those with an excess of fresh food directly with those who need it by way of local food pantries in all 50 states – with zero logistics. Up to now, America’s food safety net depended on centralized food banks acting as hubs that then distributed processed food to 33,500 food pantries nationwide - a highly inefficient network that couldn’t accept or distribute locally grown fresh food leaving tens of millions of Americans to rely only jars and cans of sugar and salt laden processed produce. Thanks to Google’s technology and support, AmpleHarvest.org is changing that and is positioned, in tandem with Google, to convert the entire system into one that uses fresh food as a primary source of produce and canned processed food as a true secondary back up. Gary Oppenheimer a self-professed aging geek and email pioneer who hates waste and missed opportunities. He is the founder and executive director of AmpleHarvest.org. He was named CNN Hero in 2010, did a 2012 TEDx talk, received Point of Light tribute award in 2013 and most recently, was nominated for the World Food Prize by Vint Cerf.

On July 1-2, the Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI) Working Group of the Advisory Committee to the NIH Director (ACD) held a public workshop on participant engagement and health equity as they relate to the proposed PMI national research cohort. The workshop focused on the design of an inclusive cohort, building and sustaining public trust, direct-from-participant data provision, and effective and active participant engagement characteristics of a national research cohort of one million or more volunteers. The workshop built on the big science questions developed during the April 28–29 workshop at the NIH, digital health data perspectives shared during the May 28-29 workshop, and information on the strategies to address community engagement and health disparities in a large national research cohort gathered from stakeholders through a request for information. The workshop took place on the National Institutes of Health campus in Bethesda, Maryland, and was videocast. A full list of workshops being convened by the ACD PMI Working Group is available on the Events page of the NIH PMI website.

Presenter: Barbara J Ossiass, BA from Reimbursement Revenue Solutions, LLC in Middletown, MD. Radiology Benefit Management (RBM) companies screen requests for pre-certification of advanced medical imaging procedures for private third-party payors; their only function is to reduce cost and assure appropriateness of procedures. Even Medicare will be requiring some type of pre-certification in the future, so the time is now to learn how to deal successfully with RBMs. This presentation will provide information on the use of RBMs by private third-party payors; an overview of the major RBMs and which payors they work with; how to establish protocols for obtaining pre-certification; and information on precertification for Medicare, which is coming in the not-so-distant future. The presenter will also discuss success stories from facilities that have learned to work with RBMs.
