The Future of Nursing: Working on the front lines of patient care, nurses can play a vital role in helping realize the objectives set forth in the Affordable Care Act, legislation that represents the broadest health care overhaul since the creation of the Medicare and Medicaid programs. A number of barriers prevent nurses from being able to respond effectively to rapidly changing health care settings and an evolving health care system.
Department of Health and Human Services HHS commissioned the National Academy of Medicine of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine to convene an expert committee to examine scientific and policy issues related to the prevention, detection, control, and management of hepatitis B and hepatitis C.
DVH and its co-sponsors tasked the National Academies to determine whether elimination goal s are feasible for hepatitis C incidence, hepatitis C mortality, hepatitis B incidence, and hepatitis B mortality; and, if so, what the goals and plan of action to achieve the elimination goals should specify.
The Phase I report explores the barriers that must be overcome to eliminate hepatitis B and hepatitis C in the United States — and reaffirms that hepatitis elimination can be achieved with the right resources, commitment, and strategy.
The committee identified the underlying factors that impede current efforts to prevent and control these diseases. Three major factors were found: There is a lack of knowledge and awareness about chronic viral hepatitis on the part of the health-care and social-service providers There is a lack of knowledge and awareness about chronic viral hepatitis among at-risk populations, members of the public and policy-makers There is insufficient understanding about the extent and seriousness of the public health problem, so inadequate public resources are being allocated to prevention, control and surveillance programs.The Institute of Medicine recently released a report on the progress achieved to date on the recommendations set forth by the IOM’s report The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health.
