Emergency room doctors busy, despite ACA

first_imgDoctors responding to an American College of Emergency Physicians poll released May 4, 2015 report more patients are seeking emergency room treatment since the Affordable Care Act (ACA) went into effect in 2014. One of the ACA selling points was to reduce ER trips, costs, and wait times by directing patients to primary care doctors, who focus more on preventing and managing chronic diseases.“Before you have evidence, you can tell stories that go in either direction. You can imagine that expanding insurance could cause people to go to the emergency department more, or could cause them to go less,” said health economist Katherine Baicker, chair of the Department of Health Policy and Management and C. Boyden Gray Professor of Health Economics at Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health, in a May 4 WHYY (Philadelphia) interview.Baicker co-authored a 2014 study that found an increase in ER visits in Oregon after the state expanded its Medicaid program. “We found that when people had Medicaid, they went to the emergency room about 40 percent more often,” she said.

Action needs to be taken now regarding youth crime, says Barbados minister

first_imgStephen Lashley. Image via: nationnews.comBRIDGETOWN, Barbados (BGIS) — Barbados Minister of Youth, Stephen Lashley, says there is a need to “take some action” as it relates to youth crime. Speaking on Monday evening at the launch of Endless Possibilities – A Job Attachment and Mentorship Programme, he admitted that the “vexing problem” of youth crime was not a new phenomenon, but noted it had been discussed in the 2004 report from the National Commission on Law and Order.Lashley told his audience: “Whether the action we take is perceived by others as too small a step, we need to let it be known we are taking steps in the right direction, recognising that we can only take many more steps and become like the Obadele Thompsons, the Usain Bolts and the Andrea Blacketts of this world only if all of us take that one step together.“The Barbados that many of us desire and wish to leave for our children and future generations is not one of utopia, based on idealism, but can be attained once we join together, both the public and private sectors, to counteract any negatives.”According to him, this new five-month programme, which will cater to 35 persons between the ages of 16 and 24, was one such step in the right direction. Stressing it was not conceptualised to compete with existing programmes, he pointed out that it was developed to ensure more young people had another access point to the job market.Acknowledging that Barbadians had overcome many challenges and had several accomplishments which enabled them to maintain a comparative advantage with many of the world’s nations, he expressed the view that citizens could not be satisfied to merely exist on past attainments.“There is still cause for alarm as every day, through the various mediums of reporting, we hear of another heinous crime, incidents of bullying permeating our school environment, seemingly lawless acts and cases of domestic abuse; all occurring at a time of the world’s greatest economic recession.“This is having a negative impact on our family, schools and particularly those most vulnerable – our children. We are also witnessing an erosion of our social fabric that once knitted us together as communities where people looked out for each other,” Lashley lamented.He also expressed regret that some people did not even know the names of their neighbours.The minister said thousands of teenagers between the ages of 16 and 18 leave school every year, some opting to further their studies, while others go in search of employment. He asked what happens to those who were unable to secure a place at an educational institution or a job.“It is these young persons who become unattached. They are vulnerable and can be lured into all types of deviant activity and behaviour. We must stop this trend now before it is too late,” he underscored.Lashley said young people had repeatedly called for employment and skills training opportunities and he told the business people that by being part of the Endless Possibilities Programme, they were investing in the future of the nation and safeguarding the viability of their businesses.“Our young people are speaking clearly and we the adults, the parents and the leaders should continue to engage them in discussion and seek, wherever possible, to create an environment for them to fully participate in the process of change,” he suggested.He maintained that the new programme would not be a panacea, but would offer the vulnerable, unattached person a chance to create limitless opportunities and provide the employer with an employee who had been properly trained for the workplace. The young people will also be assigned trained counsellors who will provide the necessary psycho-social support during the job attachment and mentorship period.The one-month orientation phase of the programme starts today, to be followed by a three-month job attachment and mentorship segment. The Ministry of Family, Culture, Sports and Youth will give the participants a weekly stipend and it is hoped that they will find permanent employment with the companies on completion of the programme.By Sharon AustinCaribbean News Now NewsRegional Action needs to be taken now regarding youth crime, says Barbados minister by: – November 2, 2011 38 Views   no discussions Share Sharecenter_img Share Tweet Sharing is caring!last_img read more

Platini considers return to football after ban

first_img Platini was banned for four years from football and had to quit UEFA after being found to have taken a $2 million (1.8 million euro) payment from then FIFA president Sepp Blatter in 2011. Loading… The 64-year-old, who lost the chance to stand for the presidency of global governing body FIFA as a result of his suspension, is still fighting to clear his name in the European Court of Human Rights.But his ban, which was twice reduced from eight and then six years following earlier appeals, expired in October and Platini hopes to get back into football politics, according to an interview the former France star gave to British newspaper The Times.“It could be my destiny. I don’t want to go into a club so that means a political matter, a national association, UEFA, FIFA or (professional footballers’ association) FIFPRO, in two or three years so I have time to consider if it’s good for me and if I would be useful,” Platini was quoted as saying on The Times website on Friday.“FIFPRO don’t need me at the moment but if they want to bring the players into football politics I could be important for them, the players are the key to football.“But I know FIFA called them and said ‘Don’t take him’.”Platini was interviewed by French authorities over a lunch he attended with then-French president Nicolas Sarkozy and the Emir of Qatar in 2010, a month before FIFA controversially awarded the 2022 World Cup to Qatar and the 2018 tournament to Russia.Blatter claimed Platini told him Sarkozy had ordered him to vote for Qatar for political reasons.But Platini told the Times: “As I said to the (French) justice we never spoke of the World Cup at this lunch, and Sarkozy never said you have to vote for Qatar.
