4 Key message Barriers to integration, and problems facing implementation of NCD programmes in PHC. Current Health care system (Radar syndrome) and explain the innovative care for NCD framework based upon a set of (6) guiding principles with clear differences between existing and reformed services characteristics.

6 Dr. Tawfik A. Khoja

7 Barriers to Integration
Cognitive Barriers: People often have little thought for the future. Doctor-initiated, i.e. the demand should be predictable Non-urgent. Easily delegated to other primary health care team members. Focused on high-risk groups & focused on individuals. Good records are essential; audit is usually straightforward . Dr. Tawfik A. M. Khoja

8 Psychological Barriers:
All of us at times are prone to promote our own idea as keenly as we promote our own survival. Political Barriers: It is not unknown for governments to back out silently of preventive obligations as if influenced by pressure groups who would lose if prevention were successful. Dr. Tawfik A. M. Khoja

9 Logistic Barriers: A health Center needs to be highly organized.
Answer questions like: “Who has not had their blood pressure checked for 3 years?” “Who has not turned up to their request to attend for screening”? “Who has stopped sending in for their repeat prescriptions for anti-hypertensive”? Remote, rural, and inner cities areas poses major logistic problems. Dr. Tawfik A. M. Khoja

10 Ethical Barriers Financial Barriers: Motivation Barriers:
A practice may have to pay for extra staff to run an effective screening programme. Motivation Barriers: Changing from a crisis-led work pattern to strategic prevention & Integration is one way that practice nurses can lead the way. There is some evidence that they are particularly successful at the meticulous, repetitive tasks on which all good prevention depends. Dr. Tawfik A. M. Khoja

11 Problems Facing Implementation of NCD Programmes
Lack of risk factor surveillance. Non-harmonization of monitoring & surveillance methodologies. Lack of reliable mortality data. Lack of training of professionals in NCDs prevention & control. Deficiency of information on health care services management for NCDs. Inadequate Health facilities infrastructural. Dr. Tawfik A. M. Khoja

12 Current Health Care System
The Radar Syndrome Patient appears. Patient is treated “find it & fix it” Patient is discharged. …… then disappears from radar screen. Dr. Tawfik A. M. Khoja

13 Primary care defined "Primary care is the provision of integrated, accessible health care services by clinicians who are accountable for addressing a large majority of personal health care needs, developing a sustained partnership with patients, and practicing in the context of family and community.“ Source: Institute of Medicine, Committee on the Future of Primary Care. Primary Care: America's Health in a New Era. Washington, DC: National Academy Press, 1996. Dr. Tawfik A. Khoja

14 Keeping PEOPLE Well Getting PEOPLE Better Helping PEOPLE Cope
Efficient Primary Health Care Must Include The Following “9 As”. It Must be: Available Accessible Affordable Acceptable Adaptable Applicable Attainable Appropriate Assessable Keeping PEOPLE Well Getting PEOPLE Better Helping PEOPLE Cope Dr. Tawfik A. M. Khoja

15 INTEGRATION Integrated health promotion and NCD’s prevention is a coordinated, systematic plan involving various Stakeholders using a combination of approaches to address health determinants and risk factors. Dr. Tawfik A. M. Khoja

16 Health care systems must guard against the fragmentation of services
Health care systems must guard against the fragmentation of services. Care for NCDs needs integration to ensure shared information across setting and providers, this means setting priorities for screening, early detection prioritising surveillance, and management to be applied and followed among Gulf area, through community - based programme as well as PHC team training on: Evidence-based clinical guidelines management of chronic conditions. Organizational factors that support the provision of care for patients with chronic conditions. A proven methodology for accelerating health care improvement in PHC. Dr. Tawfik A. Khoja

58 Development in the Current Stage
Requirements for Development in the Current Stage 1- Support promotion and development of optimal methods of health programs for such group of diseases and implementing programs of prevention and control of infectious and noninfectious diseases within a comprehensive and integrated health system in the primary health care in various sectors of health service, based on the concept of double burden. 2- Giving effect to the “Global Strategy on Diet, physical Activity and Health through the various programmes and health departments and in collaboration with the related governmental and non-governmental agencies and bodies within a comprehensive national conceptual framework. Dr. Tawfik A. Khoja

59 CONCLUSIONS Primary prevention, based on comprehensive _population-based programmes, is the most cost-effective approach to contain this emerging epidemic. Therefore, action to reduce these major NCDs should focus on preventing and controlling the risk factors in an integrated manner. Intervention at all levels of society, from communities to governments, private organizations and nongovernmental groups, is essential for prevention since the risk groups are entrenched in the framework of society influenced by many areas of national policy. Dr. Tawfik A. Khoja

60 The recommendations formed a basis for integrated Gulf programmes, they included:
• Review of the methods of combating NCDs at the level of PHC & setting the modern bases for building the capacities of the staff through support of family and community medicine. • The importance to support information systems and statistics at the national level, as related to NCDs and the common risk factors as a main element in strengthening this trend putting it on the list of priorities in the Council States. • Encouraging and supporting community initiatives to face common risk factors for NCDs in cooperation with WHO. • Starting the executive actions to deal with the health strategies with regard to nutrition and physical activity at the level of the Council States together with provision of technical support on the part of WHO in this respect.
