K Setty, G O'Flaherty, J Enault, S Lapouge, J F Loret, J Bartram
AIMS: The World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended Water Safety Plans (WSPs) since 2004 as a means to reduce drinking water contamination and risks to human health. These risk management programs have shown promise across several potential areas of evaluation, such as economic benefits and regulatory compliance. Since WSPs are largely carried out by people who interact with water treatment equipment and processes, operational performance indicators may be key to understanding the mechanisms behind desirable WSP impacts such as water quality and public health improvement...

AIM: As one of the biggest organisations in the world, the National Health Service (NHS) in England can contribute considerably to the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (UN's SDGs). In order to optimise this, this study evaluated and reconceptualised a sustainable development assessment tool for health and care settings in England. METHODS: A quantitative survey and user/expert discussion panels were conducted to evaluate and reconceptualise the existing sustainable development assessment tool used by the NHS in England, the so-called 'Good Corporate Citizenship Assessment Tool', including potential improvements such as the integration of the UN's SDGs...

G V Asokan, M Awadhalla, A Albalushi, S Al-Tamji, Z Juma, M Alasfoor, N Gayathripriya
AIMS: Amid no current estimates or correlates of geriatric depression in Bahrain and support WHO campaign 2017 'Depression-let's talk', we aimed to assess the magnitude of geriatric depression and explore its association with socio-demographic and health characteristics among the Bahrainis. METHODS: A cross-sectional survey was carried out among the geriatric Bahrainis attending the 12 community congregations of the ministry of labor and social development in Bahrain, as well as in the community, by a convenient sampling method using a validated, shorter, Arabic version of the Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS-15 items) which is a self-report instrument to screen for clinical depression...

B Gesinde, S Harry
OBJECTIVE: This review was conducted to examine current literature on the use of motivational interviewing (MI) as a strategy to promote individuals with asthma to make behavioral changes and improve health outcomes. This article systematically reviews empirical MI studies which were used to promote asthma medication adherence in children, adolescents, and adults. METHODS: Studies were obtained from several databases. We searched CINAHL, MEDLINE, PyscINFO, PubMed, and Cochrane database for articles on the use of MI to improve asthma medication adherence in individuals diagnosed with moderate to severe asthma...

E Fulton, D Wild, J Hancock, E Fernandez, J Linnane
AIMS: Although many veterans make the transition from military to civilian life without difficulty, a small proportion struggle due to an impact on mental and physical wellbeing. Stigma and a reluctance to seek help further exacerbate this problem. The Armed Forces Covenant outlines the importance of ensuring that public services are aware of the specific needs of veterans; however, evidence suggests that knowledge among professional staff may be limited. METHODS: This exploratory study included three phases...

L Steege, G Moore
AIMS: To determine the presence and prevalence of Legionella spp in domestic rainwater storage butts and to quantify its aerosolisation when collected rainwater is used for common gardening activities. METHODS: Volunteers were asked to take a water sample from their garden rainwater storage butt. The presence of Legionella was determined using quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR). Two new rainwater storage butts were installed on-site at PHE Porton and positioned in sunlight or in the shade...

#8
Shelly Arora, Christopher Squier
AIM: Areca nut (AN) is consumed globally by 600 million people, and 10%-20% of the world population uses betel quid, a preparation containing areca nut. India and other South-east Asian countries are the largest consumers of AN in the world. The aim of this article is to review the economic impact and oral health effects of the consumption of AN. It will also discuss the role of dentists and auxiliary healthcare providers for increasing public awareness and the need for a strong public health policy...

Daniel Catalan-Matamoros, Carmen Peñafiel-Saiz
AIM: Taking into account that a key determinant in public approval of vaccinations is how the media constructs and frames messages about vaccination programmes, our aim is to review communication studies exploring media coverage of vaccines within traditional media venues. METHODS: Using a registered protocol (PROSPERO: 42017072849), a systematic review was conducted that searched in three international electronic databases (PubMed, Scopus, and the International Bibliography of Social Science) for articles published between 2007 and 2017 following content-analysis methods...

Andrew Tomkins, Ryan George, Merav Kliner
AIMS: Sexualised drug taking is increasingly reported on national and international levels. We aim to review existing evidence of the relationship between recreational drug use (RDU) and sexual intercourse among men who have sex with men (MSM). METHODS: We reviewed published abstracts and full articles identified from Cochrane, MEDLINE and Embase databases from November 2010 to 2017. We included any existing studies investigating RDU in MSM and at least one of the following: high-risk sexual practices, sexually transmitted infections (STIs) or barriers to accessing specialist support...

#11
Mtr Pereboom, D Todkill, E Knapper, C Jenkins, J Hawker, N Coetzee
In June 2017, an outbreak of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) O157 infection with phage type 21/28 and identical genotypic profiles involving three children from Staffordshire was reported. Two cases developed haemolytic uraemic syndrome (HUS). Person-to-person transmission via a shared inflatable home paddling pool was the most likely route of infection, following contamination by the first case. The source of infection in the first case was not identified. We recommend that individuals experiencing gastroenteritis should not bathe in paddling pools and that water should be changed at frequent intervals throughout the day to minimise the spread of infection...
