14 CURRENT PUBLIC HEALTH PROBLEMS OF SCHOOL CHILDREN AND YOUTH

15  The problems of psychosocial etiology: uncertanity and anxiousness, depression; unsuccess in school; adolescent crisis; bullying, violence.  Risky sexual behaviour.  Abuse of legal and illegal substances that may cause addiction.  Chronic illness.  Eating disorders (bulimia or binge eating, anorexia).  Overwight, obesity and reduced physical activities.

16  lack of experience,  low risk perception,  lack of the social skills,  life style,  early age of the first sexual intercourse, promiscuity, and no protection used,  insufficient education,  hedonism as a important part of young identity,  no relevant programmes for especially risky or marginalized populations. WHAT MAKES YOUNG PEOPLE VULNERABLE TO RISK BEHAVIOUR

17  problems of mental health 19,0%  bullying, violence 12,1%  eating disorders (bulimia, anorexia) 3,0%  overwight 16,1%  obesity 4,2%  problems with reproductive health27,5%  abuse of supstances that may cause addiction18,1% COUNSELING AT SCHOOL MEDICINE DOCTOR (SCHOOL YEAR 2006/2007)

19 Risk and protective factors in adolescents

20  Numerous psychological, social, economic stressors represent “tripping point” for children and their families that results in increase of negligence, child abuse, juvenile pregnancies, violence among young, juvenile delinquency, drug abuse, children on the streets, homelessness, poverty, inadequate child care etc.  “Child at risk” – used to describe young at risk for developing specific psychosocial problems due to serious obstacles (family, school and community problems) to become a responsible and productive grow-up individuals Child at risk

21  Low risk – the one that carries minimal damage to wellbeing of child  High Risk - the one that carries serious damage to wellbeing of child (delinquency, violence, sexual abuse, psychological abuse, drug abuse, prostitution, exclusion from education system, work and family, homelessness.)  McWhirter, Ben-Rabi i Kahan-Strawczynski  American survey (Drayfoos, 1997) shows prevalence of problem behavior among 14-17 year old young: - 30 % of young engaging multiple risk behaviors leading to high risk with extremely negative consequences - 35 % of young experiment with activities that strongly influence their future Risk continuum

22  Major risk behaviors should be addressed by most nations strategies and plans:  drug and alcohol abuse,  early sexual relationships,  school abandoned and school problems,  juvenile delinquency,  violence and school violence. Major risk behaviors

23  Research ”Communities that care..” was carried out 2002-2005 in Istra by ERF  Max 50% parents according to their opinion always knew about where their child is going out, their friend, free time or money spending habits.  Parents says they have a serious talk about risk behaviors with their children 4-5 times a year  Their children see this conversations only 2-3 time a year  Regarding sanctions, parents are most tolerant to alcohol use, irresponsible sexual behavior and school missing. Efective parenting

24  Community safety  95,5% young feel safe in their community  Alcohol and drug availability  82,2% young says it easy to buy alcohol  (3% don’t know)  44,0% young says it easy to buy marihuana (14,3% responds “don’t know”)  19,0% young says it easy to buy hard drugs (26,8 % don’t know) Community safety

25  Prevention concepts have moved their focus from pathology oriented to strengths of individual and their surrounding  Modern dominating prevention models:  (1) Risk and protective factors.  (2) Resilience and risk.  (3) Promotion of mental health and prevention of mental and behavioral disorders.  (4) Developmental strengths.  (5) Positive development. Prevention models

26  For effective prevention it is necessary to:  Point multiple interventions at multiple factors at the same time (engage all risk factors and special needs and protection in surrounding)  Direct interventions towards many systems (to all systems that young person participates in and interacts)  Organize multy layer prevention interventions (individual level and macro levels) Efective prevention

27  All accounted to be effective should include:  Programs based on theoretical knowledge,  Authentic and reliable - trustworthy interventions,  Build in evaluation,  Sampling strategies  Keeping the users in the program  Ability to replicate the program  Abilities to spread the programs  Total level of trust in results  Usefulness of results for prevention theory and practice Efective prevention

28 Health promotion in family practice

29 SWOT analysis (acronym for Strenghts, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats)... is a diagnostic and prognostic instrument helping us to analyse and implement certain project, in our case health promotion in family practice. SWOT analysis

30  Human resources  MD, general practitioner/family medicine specialist, nurse in team, patronage nurse as team collaborate. All them are basically educated for health promotion.  Space capabilities (doctor´s office, file room, waiting room, small surgery room).  Well organised family practices net, especially in cities. Strenghts

31  Organisation of practice – mostly oriented toward curative medicine. Health promotion takes place during patients´ individual visits or through periodically lessons in collaboration with local community.  Lack of time for health promotion because of team members overworking with treatments of patients and administrative work.  Financing system. Family practices are financed mostly through flat rate “per capita”, only in small part preventive chekups are financed. It´s necessary to plan additional financial resources for health promotion in family practice. Weaknesses

32  Additional education perspective (smoking cessation treatment, obesity treatment, asthma control school etc.) The example of such education is Professional Course of Health Promotion and Addiction Prevention in frame of the Tempus project.  Positive attitudes of local community – Rijeka is involved in Healthy Cities Movement, Primorsko Goranska County upholds health promotion projects.  Patients show growing interest for helthy life styles.  Organistion of practice could be not only weak point, but also an opportunity for health promotion. Patients in waiting room could get inspirative thematic materials, which could encourage them for discussion with other patients. Opportunities

33  Health promotion in family practice could produce an overwork of family doctor and nurse, or neglection of disease treatments. Threats
