Increasing evidence-based practice (EBP) use in community mental health is a national priority, especially given that one in five youth will suffer from mental health concerns before adulthood. Implementation science offers a unique lens for understanding EBP use that identifies barriers and facilitators of successful adoption. Consumer engagement is often overlooked as an EBP implementation strategy. In this article, we describe the State of Hawai'i Child and Adolescent Mental Health Division's innovative effort to target consumer EBP demand via the Help Your Keiki Website...

The objective of this study is to examine the relationship between maternal nativity status and preterm birth (PTB) or low birth weight (LBW) for Hawai'i resident mothers, to compare these relationships across different maternal race/ethnicity groups, and to identify other potential risk and protective factors related to PTB and LBW. Using the 2004 Natality Birth Data from the National Vital Statistic System of the National Center for Health Statistics, crude and adjusted odds ratios were calculated using logistic regression to determine maternal racial/ethnic-specific nativity effects on PTB and LBW...

The purpose of this study was to identify community providers' perspectives on risk and protective factors for youth alcohol use in Hawai'i to inform future trainings of providers. A total of 104 providers within communities and prevention organizations in Hawai'i were asked to list risk and protective factors for underage drinking in each of the socioecological levels (individual, family, community, and society). The majority of participants were female (66.3%). Overall, 507 risk and protective factors were listed...

Pregnancy can complicate the presentation and workup of abdominal pain. A healthy 21-year-old gravida-3 para-1 woman at 34 weeks of gestation presented for severe pain localized to her abdominal left upper quadrant (LUQ. Physical exam was unremarkable except for localized pain on palpation, and she was discharged with acetaminophen and cyclobenzaprine for presumed musculoskeletal pain. The next day, she returned for worsening pain. An extensive workup including labs, electrocardiogram, chest x-ray, and abdominal computed tomography was unremarkable, and she was discharged with hydrocodone/acetaminophen...

Despite a progressive legislative landscape, some women in Hawai'i lack access to abortion care. Those in the military, undocumented immigrants, and people living in rural areas and on neighbor islands face significant barriers to timely and affordable abortion care. Evaluating these gaps in access can help identify key areas for policy improvement to ensure health equity in Hawai'i.

The objective of this study was to compare the examination scores before and after implementation of a study program based on high yield topics on the Council of Resident Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology (CREOG) In-Training Examination. This prospective cohort study compared scores from academic years 2012 to 2014 of University of Hawai'i obstetrics and gynecology residents who participated in a directed study program based on selected high yield topics from the CREOG Test Item Summary Booklet. Topics were considered high yield if more than 75% of the program residents answered the topic questions incorrectly during the immediately preceding CREOG In-Training Examination administration...

Filipinos are one of the fastest growing Asian ethnic groups in the United States, yet little is known about how to specifically address the varying health needs of the Filipino community with diabetes and heart disease. This is a problem because rates of potentially preventable hospitalizations (PPH) are high for Filipinos with these conditions. A PPH is a hospitalization that could potentially have been avoided with better access to quality primary care. Patients over 21 years of age with heart disease or diabetes and who were hospitalized at the Queen's Medical Center with a PPH were recruited to complete a face-to-face interview eliciting the patients' perspectives on key factors leading to this hospitalization (n=102)...

The Pacific Island region is geographically the most isolated region in the world representing a diverse population of indigenous peoples, migrated groups and new-comers. Rates of chronic disease are predominately high in populations identified as Pacific Islander. The practice of dietetics, defined as nutrition education for the prevention of disease and medical nutrition therapy for the treatment of chronic diseases, proves challenging with the unique cultural diversity in the region. There is a need to describe dietetics practice, populations served, and needs for resources identified by nutrition-related topic and cultural relevance for Registered Dietitian Nutritionists in the Pacific Island region...

Tomoki Sempokuya, Dennis T Bolger
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a highly aggressive malignancy in which tumor thrombus can invade portal and hepatic veins in late stages. However, an antemortem diagnosis of right atrial invasion by tumor thrombus is very rare and confers a poor prognosis. We report a patient with antemortem diagnosis of tumor thrombus in the right atrium incidentally found by transthoracic echocardiogram which was later confirmed with CT scan of abdomen with IV contrast. The patient was also noted to have an acute increase in alpha-fetoprotein (AFP)...

Prurigo pigmentosa is a rare inflammatory dermatitis first described in 1971. While the etiology of Prurigo pigmentosa is yet unknown, conditions associated with ketosis often accompany this rash. Prurigo pigmentosa is successfully treated with antibiotics and by resolution of ketosis. However, there is no dietary treatment option to successfully treat the rash without sacrificing ketosis. We report two cases successfully treated with increase of dietary carbohydrate intake. The second case suggests that cessation of ketosis may not be necessary to resolve Prurigo pigmentosa...

We investigated racial/ethnic and county-level disparities in inpatient utilization for 15 clinical conditions among Hawaii's Medicaid population. The study was conducted using inpatient claims data from more than 200,000 Hawai'i Medicaid beneficiaries, reported in the year 2010. The analysis was performed by stratifying the Medicaid population into three age groups: children and adolescent group (1-20 years), adult group (21-64 years), and elderly group (65 years and above). Among the differences found, Asians had a low probability of inpatient admissions compared to Whites for many disease categories, while Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islanders had higher probabilities than Whites, across all age groups...

This exploratory study analyzes limited English proficient (LEP) Chuukese patients' perspectives on dual-role interpreters in Guam and Chuuk. Methods included ethnographic observations of encounters with health care workers (HCWs) and 225 female Chuukese patients seeking reproductive healthcare in community health clinics: 126 women in Guam and 99 women in Chuuk. Ethnographic observations were supplemented by semi-structured interviews with 26 HCWs, and life history interviews with 15 Chuukese transnational migrant women...
