Influenza-associated neurological complications.

Hide Abstract
While mostly diagnosed in the pediatric population, neurological complications of pandemic influenza A infection may affect young and previously healthy adults, and may follow a fulminant, severe, and occasionally fatal course. We reviewed severe neurological complications secondary to influenza infection reported in the literature, in attempt to outline recurrent syndromes that may assist the clinician in making a timely diagnosis. Vigilance and awareness of these clinical entities are key in the neurologist and intensivists role in surveillance and early recognition of pandemic influenza, and in ensuring improved survival for affected patients.

The personal and social impact of mental health problems and substance use on workforce participation is costly. Social determinants of health contribute significantly to health disparities beyond effects associated with work. Guided by a theory-driven model, we identified pathways by which social determinants shape immigrant worker health.

PUBLISHED: 02-26-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
High levels of youth employment, workplace hazards, and characteristics unique to adolescents contribute to a relatively high incidence of injuries among teens in the restaurant industry. This article discusses the ProSafety model of injury prevention among teen restaurant workers. Through integration with an existing career and technical education program, the ProSafety project seeks to prevent occupational injuries among the teen worker population through classroom safety education and internship skills reinforcement. ProSafety is the product of an innovative collaboration with occupational health nurses, business professionals, educators, and government. Its approach is derived from Social Cognitive Theory, is consistent with key values and strategies of occupational health nurses, and provides lessons for practitioners seeking to reduce occupational injuries in food service or among other populations of adolescent workers.

Hide Abstract
Mental illness and substance use disorders are prevalent among workers. Each year businesses lose billions of dollars to decreased work performance associated with these issues. This article discusses a theoretical model that depicts relationships between social discrimination, job concerns, and social support and workers mental health problems and substance use and work performance. The focus is Asian immigrant workers, a population underrepresented in the literature. This model serves to assist occupational health nurses in the practice and research arenas better understand the complexities of mental health problems and substance use among Asian immigrant workers. Occupational health nurses are in a prime position to recognize, identify, and respond to at-risk workers. Examples of areas that might be considered by occupational health nurses when using this model are included.

A cross-border comparison of hepatitis B testing among chinese residing in Canada and the United States.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The Western Pacific region has the highest level of endemic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection in the world, with the Chinese representing nearly one-third of infected persons globally. HBV carriers are potentially infectious to others and have an increased risk of chronic active hepatitis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma. Studies from the U.S. and Canada demonstrate that immigrants, particularly from Asia, are disproportionately affected by liver cancer.

Hide Abstract
Restaurants are an important source of employment for immigrants in the United States. This article discusses the findings from an ethnographic study on Chinese immigrant restaurant workers occupational injury and illness experiences. Eighteen participants were interviewed; 10 of whom attended follow-up focus groups. The author used ethnographic content analysis to analyze the data. On-the-job cuts and burns were the most common injuries. Musculoskeletal disorders, or specifically aches and pains, soreness, or numbness were the most troubling occupational illnesses. The author identified three cultural concepts pertinent to the causes of occupational illnesses during data analysis. Participants used multiple methods to heal their injuries and illnesses and to keep themselves safe and healthy. Implications for cultural competence in US occupational safety and health research and practice and elimination of health disparities in immigrant workers conclude the article.

Hide Abstract
More immigrants are seeking employment in restaurants. Drawing data from an ethnographic study, this article discusses what and how sociocultural contexts shape the safety and health of immigrant restaurant workers. Eighteen Chinese immigrants from China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan participated in the study. Data generation methods included a questionnaire, individual and focus group interviews, and participant observations. Ethnographic analysis revealed that immigration mechanisms, demands of English proficiency for employment, and existence of networks and ethnic communities shaped the participants employment choices. Working hours and schedules, interpersonal relationships at work, job design and training, occupational safety and health training, and national events and economy further influenced the participants occupational experiences and well-being. Issues were noted with job security, mental health, family relationships, and risks for occupational injuries and illnesses. Implications for occupational health nursing research and practice to reduce immigrant workers vulnerability to poor safety and health outcomes conclude this article.

Occupational trajectories and immigrant worker health.
Workplace Health Saf
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
During their initial years in the receiving country, many immigrants experience occupational downgrading. Downgrading is a loss of occupational status between ones last job in the home country and first job in the receiving country, often resulting in overeducation or overqualification. Although the extent and determinants of such occupational trajectories have been characterized, the connection to immigrant worker health has not been widely examined. However, an emerging body of knowledge indicates that negative health outcomes are associated with overeducation and overqualification in general worker populations, suggesting similar experiences by immigrant workers. This article provides an overview of the magnitude and conceptualization of occupational downgrading, overeducation, and overqualification and discusses implications for immigrant worker health. Occupational health professionals should spearhead research efforts on occupational downgrading, raise public awareness about the issue, and serve as advocates for immigrant workers rights.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
