[Experiences of loss, grief, coping strategies in pre- and perinatal care]

ZSÁK Éva, HEGEDÛS Katalin

[Pre- and perinatal losses tend to be­come a phenomenon of complicated grief, a burden for the parents, for their families and for the helping professionals, yet it is a little studied topic. Our aim is to systematically review the literature concerning the grief experienced by the health care staff, caused by pre- and perinatal loss to present an overall picture of the international and national attitudes and existing solutions. The importance and complexity of the problem need greater attention, the existence of active and up-to-date programmes on all professional levels. ]

[County level mortality data of urogenital system in Hungary between 2010-2014]

KISS István, PAKSY András

[According to The International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (10th Revision, ICD 10; XIV), urogenital diseases resulted in an average 910 yearly deaths in Hungary from 2010 through 2014, less than 1% of the cumulative mortality rate. Out of all urogenital conditions, kidney and bladder diseases were the leading cause of death, accounting for nearly 85 percent of all deaths in the examined period. It should be noted that mortality due to urogenital cancers, renovascular hypertonia, diabetic nephropathy, congenital malformations and pathologies related to childbirth and pregnancy are excluded from consideration in the present review. As the Hungarian Central Statistical Office does not disclose the causes of death by age and gender at its county-level data, this paper reports gender-specific mortality rates. Due to the fact that the county-level mortality rate of urogenital diseases is low and the yearly standard deviation is high, the five-year overall mortality rate of 2010-2014 is presented. Hungarian counties differ greatly in terms of mortality from urogenital diseases. The number of deaths per 100 000 population ranges between 6.74 in Békés county and 16.38 in Fejér county. Counties within the same region may exhibit substantially different mortality rates. An overall 7.01 deaths per 100 000 population was reported in Győr-Moson-Sopron county, whereas among residents of the neighbouring Vas county the rate was reported as 14.73 per 100 000 population. The observed variations prevail even when standardised mortality rates are compared and thus the differences in the counties’ age distributions are accounted for. Regional differences become more apparent when only the deaths caused by kidney diseases are analysed out of all urogenital pathologies. In this case, two- or threefold differences are observed between the respective Hungarian counties. Major disparities are still present between counties within the same region. For example, the number of deaths per 100.000 population is 3.74 in Hajdú-Bihar county, and 8.04 in Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok county, respectively. The diagnosis frequency of kidney diseases has a strong positive correlation with case fatality, but it may not fully account for all regional variations in mortality rates. Regional characteristics of dialytic care and the accessibility of dialytic facilities is not related to patient mortality. ]

BARNA István, DAIKI Tenno, KÉKES Ede, DANKOVICS Gergely

[2010 a new, complex screening program started in Hungary, named Nationwide Comprehensive Health Protection Screening Program in Hungary 2010-2020-2030. The screening was installed on a specially furnished lorry, which is able and will be able to get anywhere from big cities to the smallest villages. The Program as part of the “Heart and Vascular National Program” works with the support of 74 professional-scientific societies and companies. The screening program took place in a specially furnished lorry. The lorry has an easy access to the disabled, operation was performed with the quality control and permission of ÁNTSZ. Near the lorry there were activities for the preservation of health and prevention of illnesses. Within the framework of the Program in the largest mobile diagnostics center in Hungary 37 comprehensive surveys in free form. This enormous special screening station allows 5,100 tests to be performed at each of the 200 screening stations nationwide. The screening program for over 20 years provides 15 million trials on 3,000 scenes and 1 million adult visitors in free humanitarian. The European National Health Program and the National Program for the Prevention and Treatment of Car­dio­vascular Diseases co-ordinated by the Asso­ciation of Hungarian Medical Asso­ciations (MOTESZ) are implemented by con­sensual cooperation. Based on the results, it was re-confirmed that Hungarian population belonged to the high risk group in several aspects. Authors also outlined solution plans for general risk reduction and disease prevention. ]
