CHERP Investigator Research Activities and Collaborations

Disparities

Health disparity is defined as clinically and statistically significant differences in health care or health status between distinct vulnerable and less vulnerable populations linked with social, economic, and/or environmental disadvantage and an elevated burden of ill health or premature mortality. Such disparities adversely affect groups who have systematically experienced greater obstacles to health or health care based on numerous characteristics linked to discrimination or exclusion.
The categories and/or domains of disparities research can include:

  • Examples of Vulnerable Populations
  • Race/Ethnicity
  • Gender
  • Socioeconomic
  • Sexual orientation
  • Stigmatizing medical diagnoses (e.g. HIV, mental health, PTSD)
  • Generations of Disparities Research
    • First Generation – Detecting variation
    • Second Generation – Identifying reasons for disparities
    • Third Generation – Intervening on disparities
  • Factors Associated with Disparities Research
    • Patient level
    • Provider level
    • System level
  • Disparities Research Methods
    • Qualitative Research
    • Mixed Methods Research
    • Implementation Research
    • Analysis of existing databases

    The Center for Health Equity Research and Promotion advances the quality and equity of health and health care for vulnerable Veteran populations through:

    • Rigorous health services research
    • Partnerships with VA operations and policy stakeholders
    • Research training and mentoring
    • Service

    This year we refined our organizational structure and expanded collaborations to support achievement of the Center of Innovation (COIN) program goals. We have advanced our cross-center research program through partnerships aimed at improving health care experiences and patient satisfaction with VA health care among vulnerable populations. We also have supported an emerging area of research concentrated on improving the quality, safety, and value of clinical therapeutics in the VA and beyond.

    CHERP leaders consistently respond to new opportunities to communicate the value of our research to VA leaders charged with ensuring the quality and equity of health care for millions of Veterans. CHERP Investigators are at the forefront of efforts to evaluate the impact of VA’s implementation of the patient-aligned care team model of care and efforts to translate VA research findings into clinical practice.

    About Our History

    The VA Center for Health Equity Research and Promotion (CHERP) was established in 2001 by HSR D as a national Center of Excellence focused on detecting, understanding, and reducing disparities in health and health care in vulnerable populations. This strong collaboration between the VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System (VAPHS) and Philadelphia VA Medical Center (PVAMC) in VISN4 and their respective academic affiliates (University of Pittsburgh and University of Pennsylvania) was built upon the collective and complementary strengths of the investigators at both sites to target an area of investigation of highest priority to the VA Healthcare System and the nation as a whole. Built upon a track record of scholarship, cross-center research collaborations, development and retention of highly accomplished investigators, service, and well-established partnerships, CHERP became a Center of Innovation (COIN) that has measurable impact on the quality and equity of Veteran health care.

    About Our Investigators

    Over the past decade, CHERP investigators conducted innovative, high impact health services research; advanced the conceptual underpinnings of health equity research to facilitate the work of others; partnered with operations and policy leaders on research and quality improvement initiatives; promoted the implementation and dissemination of findings to improve the clinical care and health outcomes of Veterans; and supported the development of junior investigators who have become leaders in this field. CHERP provides infrastructure and support for approximately 42 core investigators engaged in health services research at the VA Pittsburgh Medical Center and the Philadelphia VA Medical Center. These physicians, nurses, and PhD investigators have broad expertise in quantitative and qualitative research methods, including clinical trials, quality improvement, clinical epidemiology, large database analysis, pharmacoeconomics, psychometrics, econometrics, decision and cost-effectiveness analysis, meta-analysis, technology assessment, and implementation science. An additional 25 non-core investigators collaborate with CHERP core investigators to advance our mission and strategic goals.

    About Service

    CHERP Investigators fulfill not only national service roles, but also fulfill important service roles across a broad array of academic societies, research organizations, and within their local VAMCs, VISN4, and affiliated universities. CHERP investigators hold national leadership roles that position them to shape health care policy, improve clinical care, and impact research priorities and dissemination.

    Part-time study

    Further your career, change direction or return to work through part-time study

    LSBU has a range of part-time undergraduate courses to suit you and there are some major benefits to studying part-time.

    No upfront fees

    Home and EU part-time students don’t have to pay tuition fees upfront at the beginning of each year providing their part-time loan is in place from Student Finance England at their face-to-face enrolment. Provided it’s your first degree, new part-time students can access government-subsidised tuition fee loans if they complete a minimum of 25% of the full-time course-load in one year and meet set eligibility criteria.

    If your loan is not in place you will need to pay at least the initial down payment at your face-to-face enrolment session. This will amount to 50% of your yearly tuition fees and will allow you to complete your enrolment. Find out more about tuition fees on our undergraduate Fees and funding page .

    Flexible study options

    We offer a range of professionally-focused courses, developed especially to be studied part-time. Study methods include block release, weekend and evening classes and online learning. In all cases, you’ll be studying with other part-time students for either a reduced or full degree award.

    If you’re looking to take a little longer over your studies then we create an individual study plan that specifies which units you complete each year.

    Select part-time courses in our Course Finder .

    Tuition fees

    Home or EU students studying a part-time undergraduate first degree for the first time may be eligible for a non income-assessed tuition fee loan. You must be studying at an intensity of 25% of the full-time equivalent per year, taking no more than four times the time it would take to complete the course studied full time, up to a maximum of 16 years.

    The majority of fees for the 17/18 academic year have now been set and can be found in the course information given in our Course Finder. Where details are yet to be finalised the 2016/17 fees are shown as a good indicator of costs.

    Student employability

    All of our courses are accredited or developed alongside leading industry professional bodies. LSBU is the No. 1 London Modern university for graduate prospects (Sunday Times League Table 2017) and all our courses are taught by staff connected to relevant professions and underpinned by practical research.

If you’re thinking of studying part-time with our Faculty of Health and Social Care based at our Havering campus you’ll be right next door to our partner Trust hospitals where you take your placements.

    Cell phone ownership hits 91% of adults

    For the first time, the Pew Research Center’s Internet American Life Project has found that cell phone ownership among adults has exceeded 90%. Cell phones are now being used by 91% of adults, according to the survey conducted between April 17 and May 19 of 2,252 adults.

    While the adoption figures are stunning by every measure—the cell phone is the most quickly adopted consumer technology in the history of the world — there are some demographic groups whose embrace of the cell phone is somewhat less avid than others.

    Those groups are: people ages 65 and older; those who did not attend college; those living in households earning less than $30,000; and those in rural areas. In this survey, it is even the case that women are statistically significantly less likely to own cell phones than men—though this pattern has not been evident in all of our previous surveys.

    Pew Internet reported yesterday that a big part of the cell adoption story is the rise of the smartphone. In this same survey, we found that 56% of American adults have smartphones.

    Our fall survey of youth ages 12-17 put their cell phone adoption at 78% (and 37% of all teens have a smartphone). Non-owners were younger teens (especially boys), Hispanics, and those living in poorer households.

    Why this matters: Aid, comfort, interruptions, distractions, and time shifting

    The Pew Research Center began asking separately about cell phone ownership in late 2004 and began to ask about the special ways people might be using their phones in March 2006. At the time, it was clear that texting was becoming popular (35% of cell owners were texters then). Moreover, it was evident that people were using their cell phones under different circumstances and for different purposes than the way they used their landline phones.

    In that early research we uncovered a lot of the tensions that mobile connectivity has introduced to modern life: We found that 74% of cell owners had used the phone to get help in an emergency and that 86% of cell owners were irritated at least occasionally by loud cell users in public places. In our early work we saw that 41% of cell owners said they were beginning to use their phones to fill in free time with phone calls while they were traveling or waiting for something. Some 28% of cell owners at that time admitted that they didn t drive as safely as they should. And 22% reported that “too many” people were trying to get in touch with them.

    Since then, phone ownership has risen sharply.

    Pew Internet has documented a wide range of impacts related to this nearly ubiquitous mobile connectivity and a compendium of the most important findings can be found here. A few favorites:

    • Our best compilation of the pluses and minuses of cell ownership came in this report. which showed that many constantly check their phones; keep them by their bedside; think their phones make life better because they connect with pals more often; think their phones make life easier to plan; and think their phones make them more productive.
    • Cell phones have become integral to key activities, such as people getting health information and using them for political and civic purposes.
    • Two-screen “connected TV viewers” are on the rise.
    • More and more people use their phones while they shop to compare prices and read reviews.
    • Some connect to libraries via cells.

    The most recent rundown of how cell phones have become the Swiss Army Knife of communication and all the activities they perform on their devices is here .

    Of course, the world of Pew Research has been directly affected by the rise of cell phones. We need to connect to cell owners as we do our surveys. As of June 2012, 35.8% of American homes have become cell only and another 15.9% of people receive all or almost all their calls wirelessly, even though they still have landlines.

    So, most of the time in our national surveys we conduct 50% of our phone interviews on cell phones and that has greatly helped reach younger adults, African-Americans, Hispanics, and those in poorer households. And that has helped us maintain our capacity to get nationally representative samples .

    At Pew Internet, we recently added a question about mobile internet connectivity to our core questions identifying who uses the internet. Last year, we found that 17% of cell owners do most of their browsing on their phone. rather than a computer and we noted that 25% of teens fall into that category. We’ll be updating that figure for adults in a few weeks.

    Bilingual Programmes in Schools

    More schools to go bilingual in Murcia – thanks to Euroweekly News for this latest report

    THE Murcia Region is starting the new school year with 31 schools joining the bilingual education programme, through the initiative promoted by the Regional Government.

    The programme includes alternating classes in primary schools being taught in Spanish and English and the number of centres following the initiative is growing, with 254 schools offering bilingual education to over 35,000 students. The Regional Government hopes to have the bilingual model in place in all schools by 2020.

    General Director of Educational Innovation and Attention to Diversity, Ana Millan, said: “From this course, the bilingual programme allows greater autonomy to schools when carrying out their implementation, as they can decide both the number of areas taught in English, as well as the number of hours assigned, adapting to demand.”

    The new centres beginning this course with the bilingual programme in primary years have received the training necessary for its implementation during June and July. Further training will also be available.

    3D Hologram Rentals Offers Discount For Hologram Display Rental Units

    Chicago, IL. (PRWEB) November 17, 2015

    Chicago area based hologram rental company 3D Hologram Rentals is pleased to announce a new discount program designed to help companies take advantage of this groundbreaking technology. The term hologram may conjure images of science fiction settings or fuzzy 1980s wall art but modern holograms are three-dimensional images projected with both clarity and depth. These new holograms make a stunning statement in a wide variety of settings, making them popular at company meetings, trade shows, corporate events, or other special gatherings.

    In fact, modern holographic technology has a wide array of uses, from demonstrating manufacturing and other complex systems to showcasing a three dimensional piece of art created from light. The rental devices that 3D Hologram Rentals make available are self-contained, easy to set up boxes that will display the desired images in three dimensions. These devices work in high-light areas, so there is no need to dim the overall illumination in order to see the illusion. In order to make this device more widely available, 3D Hologram Rentals is offering a 20% discount for business around the Chicago metropolitan area, Chicago Suburbs and surrounding midwest areas.

    This kind of hologram technology really is the next big thing, said Mark Smith, founder and creative director at 3D Hologram Rentals. We want to make sure people have the chance to have this kind of high-end experience and really be wowed by what they see. Smith went on to explain that he has received calls from many corporations and companies looking to set up holograms as a way to galvanize employees, show appreciation, or communicate a certain sense of elegance and innovation.

    These holograms are, in fact, already being deployed in a wide variety of settings. Event planners, in particular, have found that these devices are an excellent way to bring an instant degree of class and uniqueness to any event whether it s a high -end event, a corporate meeting for shareholders, or an business conference and trade show. The content of the hologram can be custom created, ensuring that the image matches the theme or purpose of the event. The 20% discount currently offered by 3D Hologram Rentals makes this hype even easier to achieve.

    The discount itself runs through January of 2016, meaning that it covers the busy holiday season, during which many companies are throwing Holiday Parties of varying extravagance.
