Health professionals sharpen skills on nutritional care for HIV/AIDS patients

first_img Share LocalNews Health professionals sharpen skills on nutritional care for HIV/AIDS patients by: – June 11, 2012 Tweet Share Sharecenter_img Sharing is caring! 19 Views   no discussions (L_R) Coordinator of the HIV/AIDS Response Programme Julie Frampton and Caribbean Food & Nutrition Institute Nutritionist, Deborah HenninghamHealth care professionals have been given an opportunity to sharpen their skills in providing proper nutritional care to HIV and AIDS patients, during a two day workshop which is currently underway at the Garraway Hotel.The workshop is being hosted in partnership with the Caribbean Food and Nutrition Institute (CFNI), the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and World Food Programme, under the theme “Tools and Resources for the Nutritional Management of HIV/AIDS”.Caribbean Food & Nutrition Institute Nutritionist, Deborah Henningham, told participants during the opening ceremony on Monday that nutrition plays an essential role in the lives of people who are infected with the disease.She noted that health professionals have had “interest in nutrition and HIV for the past two decades or so. Their efforts have however been hampered because of the absence of algorithms, tools and guidelines tailored to meet the specific needs of persons living with HIV/AIDS”.It is with this in mind that the World Food Program and CFNI undertook a project “to develop and implement the much needed algorithms and the resource materials”. According to Henningham, there is great need for HIV/AIDS infected patients to obtain “quality nutrition” as a lack of it can lead to weakening of their immune system and progression of the disease.“Nutrition plays a critical role in comprehensive response and support and treatment of HIV/AIDS infected people. There are complex interactions between nutrition and HIV. For example, HIV progressively weakens your immune system and leads to under nutrition. In turn, under nutrition weakens the immune system thus worsening the effects and contributes to a more rapid progression to HIV/AIDS”.Health professionals at Monday’s workshop. Photo credit: Health Promotion Resource CentreWhile she lamented the “lack of early and adequate nutrition and support and care” in many Caribbean countries which she described as “one of the most important interventions for people with HIV,” she is hopeful that a recent publication on the tools and resources for nutritional management by CFNI will assist in dealing with this challenge.“CFNI’s publication will facilitate this process in the Caribbean region. This publication provides a standardized, problem-solving, decision making process for nutrition interventions throughout the life cycle. It acts as a guide to both nutrition professionals and other members of the health care team in providing a basic level of nutritional care”. While the workshop will focus on nutrition pertinent to HIV/AIDS patients, it will also provide “general nutrition principles are also applicable to other health and disease processes,” she explained. These benefits include; nutrition in antenatal care, evaluating the nutritional status of individuals, basic principles of meal planning and balanced diets, improving iron nutrition for persons with iron deficiency, management of under nutrition, calculating caloric requirements for healthy body weight and basic principles of weight loss.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Sane: Why I quit Man City for Bayern Munich; Salihamidzic key

first_imgLeroy Sane has explained his decision to quit Manchester City for Bayern Munich. Germany winger’s move went through earlier this month. “Hasan Salihamidzic (Bayern sporting director) and his concept played a very important role,” began Sane. “He was behind the transfer from the first moment and was not put off by anything. I’m grateful for that. He showed me how the club works, which team he has in mind, how it looks. I immediately noticed: I know a lot of boys here, I fit in very well here.”Advertisement Loading… Sané continued: “The Bayern system actually fits me perfectly. The Bayern game is shaped by wingers, which of course suits me very well. That was a very important point for me.” read also:Sane officially joins Bayern Munich on five year deal Sane joins Bayern for €49m plus up to €11m in bonuses. Before Sané’s cruciate ligament injury in August 2019, a €150 million fee was still under discussion. “These are numbers that in my eyes no player in the world is worth, there is no question. However, it is certainly not a disadvantage that in the end they paid much less,” says Sané.

Mourinho happy with Blues squad

first_img Speaking to Chelsea TV, he said: “We have that (balance in the squad). We have two players per position, with three strikers and an extra midfield player. “Every position is covered and we are very happy with what we have.” Mourinho did not sanction Demba Ba’s proposed move to Arsenal following their club-record signing of Mesut Ozil, a player whose talents he knows well from Real Madrid. However, in Brazilian Willian and veteran forward Eto’o, the Blues manager is confident the club have brought in significant reinforcements. “Samuel is a very experienced striker as everybody knows and a winner,” Mourinho said. “He is a guy who in spite of winning everything, he never lost his desire to win. “Samuel comes to England with the same objective with which I went to Spain – he wants to be the first one to win the Spanish, the Italian and the English league as a player. He always wanted to play in the Premier League so he comes with big motivation. “He is different from (Fernando) Torres; Torres is different from (Demba) Ba and Ba is different from Eto’o, so we have in these three strikers experience and different qualities. Hopefully it goes well.” Press Association The Blues brought in Anzhi Makhachkala duo Willian and Samuel Eto’o as well as Marco van Ginkel and Andre Schurrle ahead of the transfer window deadline, but also allowed Romelu Lukaku to join Everton on loan. Mourinho feels such strength in depth will serve Chelsea well when they look to continue their promising start to the new season after the international break. Willian could also have signed for Tottenham before Chelsea’s late move. Mourinho is in no doubt the player will bring something different to his line-up. The Blues boss added: “Willian is a creative player and for his qualities, I think he needs a bit of time to express himself. “He is very creative, fast and dynamic and can play in all three positions behind the striker. “Again he is a kid that wanted very much to play for Chelsea and he was too many years in Ukraine and in Russia and now he has his first chance to be in a big championship.” Chelsea have just half-a-dozen English players in the 25-man squad lists for the Premier League and the Champions League which were confirmed on Thursday, with Frank Lampard, Ashley Cole and John Terry no longer at the start of their careers. Mourinho, who returned to the Stamford Bridge club this summer, sees no reason why Chelsea cannot continue to bring their own talent through the academy. “I like that. Of course you can without English players, but I like to have at least a little core of English players,” Mourinho said in an interview with the official Chelsea Magazine. “If possible – and we have to work for it – I would like to have a little core of English players made in Chelsea Football Club, starting here since young boys. I think a club needs that culture as well. “The other guys in the academy, I am starting to know them now. I watch them train; I trained with them and I watched them play. “So I start knowing these guys and as I said before, it’s not just important to have English players, but also to have players made in this club who learn what it means to be Chelsea. “They are in our plans and the club is making an investment in them.” Jose Mourinho is satisfied Chelsea now have the right balance to make a sustained assault on the Barclays Premier League and Europe this season.last_img read more

Woman Purposely Coughs on Produce at PA Supermarket, Causes $35,000 Loss

first_imgA grocery store in Pennsylvania was forced this week to throw away about $35,000 worth of food, after a woman intentionally coughed on its fresh produce, bakery products, and meat case.Joe Fasula, a co-owner of Gerrity’s Supermarket, says the incident happened Wednesday afternoon at a store in Hanover Township.According to Fasula, the woman is known by police and likely committed the act as a “very twisted prank.”He adds, “Working closely with the Hanover Township health inspector, we identified every area that she was in, we disposed of the product and thoroughly cleaned and disinfected everything.”Fasula says the police were called immediately, and the case has been escalated to the area’s district attorney’s office.Courtesy: Gerrity’s Supermarket/Facebook“They have assured me that they will be aggressively pursuing numerous charges,” he explains. “In addition, while we do not believe the woman is truly infected, they will make every effort to see that she is tested.”The grocery chain is checking whether its insurance company will cover the loss.The woman’s actions come at a time when Americans are being cautious to not contact or spread COVID-19, the illness which is caused by the coronavirus, and are practicing social distancing.“While it is always a shame when food is wasted, in these times when so many people are worried about the security of our food supply, it is even more disturbing,” adds Fasula.last_img read more

Archivists discuss LBGTQ experience

first_imgStudents met with representatives from the ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives at the USC Libraries Thursday night in Waite Phillips Hall as part of EdMonth’s “Reclaim Your Narrative” event series. Hosted by the Queer and Ally Student Assembly, Academic Culture Assembly and EdMonth, the event centered its discussions around LGBTQ hxstory, a gender-neutral substitute for “history,” using primary documents from the expansive ONE Archives at USC.ONE archivist Loni Shibuyama started the event by explaining that ONE began as a secret LGBTQ society, then expanded to become the first-ever magazine with the word “homosexual” on the cover. Now, ONE is both a non-profit organization and a collection of hxstory archives, of which USC Libraries boasts the largest in the nation.With magazines and other materials from the archives in hand, students at the event discussed not only LGBTQ identity issues of the past, but how those issues are still all too real for people of marginalized identities. QuASA member Vanessa Diaz, a junior majoring in American studies and ethnicity, reflected on these difficulties as she compared the past to the present.“Changing this system and this culture is still really important,” Diaz said. “Because even though queer identities don’t get discriminated maybe as much as they used to, people still get turned away from churches, people still get kicked out of their homes. There’s still a lot of work to be done even if we think the work is over.”Leading the discussion, Educational Assistant Helen Aldana encouraged these modern-day connections and pushed their importance for modern LGBTQ rights movements. As a member of ONE’s Educational Department, Aldana and many others help to formulate educational materials to incorporate LGBTQ issues into regular history courses, helping students to make these historical connections sooner.“With the curriculum, we’re hoping to have a legitimate idea what it means to be LGBTQ in our history,” Aldana said. “It’s nothing new. It’s not a hashtag. There’s always been a fight, and it’s important to show youth that so they can have that in their language.”Panelists emphasized the importance of taking an active role in history throughout the event, especially in terms of how students can add to it themselves. Shibuyama noted that about 95 percent of USC’s ONE Archives consists of donated items and urged the students to add their own items to the collection.“The thing that we want to have you take away from tonight is the importance of saving and documenting history, history that is being created now, and any history that you create going forward,” Shibuyama said.The remarks of QuASA Director Alyssa Coffey echoed Shibuyama, as she discussed bringing history into the present tense.“History is not always in the past,” Coffey said. “What we’re doing now is going to impact what is done tomorrow.”last_img read more
