ABSTRACT

The manifold potentials and challenges of digitalization became apparent during the COVID-19 pandemic. This chapter will present and discuss the social aspects of digitalization in times of COVID-19 from different perspectives. In doing so, the focus will be on the following two aspects: (1) Interaction and handling of digital information place many demands on information users and on those who provide the information. This has been especially true since the COVID-19 pandemic, which was accompanied by an infodemic. This is where digital health literacy comes in, which is the ability to find, understand, assess, and apply digital information in the context of health. (2) The use of digital technologies on health-related topics is socially unequally distributed in society—both horizontally (gender, age, migration, place of residence) and vertically (socioeconomic status). For this reason, the digital health divide is a major obstacle for digital technologies in healthcare—during COVID-19 and beyond. © 2022 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

ABSTRACT

Throughout history, pandemics have paved the way for the development of public health. The current COVID-19 pandemic is no different as it is taking advantage of our flat and interconnected world, posing a threat to global health at a pace as never seen before. This chapter presents an analysis of how digital health and gender empowerment can bridge the inequity gap caused and sustained by disparities related to social determinants of health. COVID-19 has struck certain groups disproportionately;this has increased the need for availability and accessibility of health services. Our findings suggest that COVID-19 is a gender-sensitive virus relying on access to digital health means. Multiple examples and case studies are provided to illustrate the relationship between inequity, gender, and digital health. Moving forward, the pandemic has crystallized the need for paradigm shifts. In this regard, the achievement of equity in health is one of the only ways to control and ultimately eradicate COVID-19 in order to leave no one behind. © 2022 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

ABSTRACT

Tis study analyses the level of health literacy exhibited by 44 Primary Education pre-service teachers (PST) aer participating in an argument-driven inquiry around the socio-scientific dilemma of vaccination on COVID-19 and the subsequent elaboration of educational transpositions for its treatment in the science classroom. Employing the ADI rubric (argument-driven inquiry), which evaluates the understanding of the content and the scientific context associated with these educational approaches, we value the degree of acquisition of each one of them. e scores obtained in the rubric (high, medium and low) and qualitative analysis of the proposals designed are linked to the different hierarchy levels of health literacy (functional, communicative and critical) to give an idea of the degree of acquisition. e results show a medium-high grade in the functional and communicative levels, and a low grade in the critical level, the latter associated with the development of community actions in the educational field, revealing the need to deepen in training actions that involve these teachers in the social role of science. (English) [ FROM AUTHOR] Este estudio analiza el nivel de alfabetización en salud que muestran 44 maestros y maestras en formación inicial del grado de Educación Primaria (PFI), tras participar en una actividad de indagación dirigida por la argumentación en torno al dilema sociocientífico de la vacunación sobre COVID-19 y la posterior elaboración de transposiciones didácticas que estos futuros docentes diseñaron como sus propuestas de enseñanza para el tratamiento en el aula de ciencias. Empleando la rúbrica IDA (indagación dirigida por la argumentación), que evalúa la comprensión del contenido y el contexto científicos asociados a estos enfoques didácticos, valoramos el grado de adquisición de cada uno de ellos alcanzado por estos futuros docentes. Las puntuaciones obtenidas en la rúbrica (alta, media y baja) y el análisis cualitativo de las propuestas didácticas que diseñaron se vinculan con los diferentes niveles de jerarquía de la alfabetización en salud (funcional, comunicativo y crítico) para dar una idea del grado de adquisición. Los resultados muestran un grado medio-alto en los niveles funcional y comunicativo, y un grado bajo en el nivel crítico, asociado este último al desarrollo de acciones comunitarias en el ámbito educativo, revelando la necesidad de profundizar en acciones formativas que involucren a este profesorado en la vertiente más social de la ciencia.

ABSTRACT

Future research using big data from multiple sources (eg, community health needs assessments, surveillance systems, GIS mapping, electronic health records, practice-based research networks) will provide timely, population-based information to evaluate and drive changes to policy and delivery systems and oral health advocacy efforts. The applied research agenda being developed by the American Association of Public Health Dentistry (7) and the “Consensus Statement on Future Directions for the Behavioral and Social Sciences in Oral Health,” which is based on an international summit (8), are helpful in setting research and methodologic priorities, including qualitative, implementation, and health systems research. How does the health of a community’s high caries risk groups change with policies such as a tax on sugar-sweetened beverages, Medicaid reimbursement changes, or health promotion efforts to improve oral health literacy and dietary behaviors? Will the World Health Organization’s addition of dental products (eg, fluoride toothpaste, low-cost silver diamine fluoride, glass ionomer cement) to its Model List of Essential Medicines (9) increase their use to prevent and treat dental caries for under-resourced populations without access to conventional high-cost dental care?

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective: to analyze the scientific production on health literacy (HL) of adolescents during the COVID-19 pandemic. Method: an integrative review, in the MEDLINE, LILACS, CINAHL and Web of Science databases, between March 2020 and August 2021. Original articles in English, Spanish and Portuguese were included. Results: of the 65 studies found in the search, eight were included for analysis, with no publication in Brazil, with five publications in 2021, predominantly in English (n=7) and all classified with level of evidence VI. Of the instruments used, eHealth literacy was the most applied instrument (n=2). Television, family and the internet were identified as the main sources of health information during the pandemic. Final considerations: the literature has indicated that HL can interfere with adolescents' decision making and that a low HL can lead to decisions and physical and mental exposure actions of adolescents.

ABSTRACT

Background: Improving food and nutrition literacy is fundamental to tackling the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region’s enormous challenges, including malnutrition and food insecurity. To direct initiatives, it is crucial to assess the region’s food and nutrition literacy. Thus, we aimed to review studies on food/nutrition literacy status in the MENA countries and illuminate the region’s research gaps in these areas, in terms of assessment, policy, and program implementation. Methods: PubMed and Google Scholar databases were searched between 18 December and 8 May 2022, to identify relevant articles published up to 2022 in the MENA region. Results: Twelve studies were included in this review. Lebanon, Palestine, and Iran are the only three MENA countries where nutrition and/or food literacy were assessed. People in these countries mostly had inadequate food and/or nutrition literacy levels, especially in the skills rather than the cognitive domain. Food and/or nutrition literacy showed associations with food habits, food-label use, food-consumption patterns, school performance, food security, dietary diversity, and nutrient adequacy. The MENA countries developed no policies or programs to address food and nutrition literacy. Conclusion: This review is a wake-up call for researchers and policymakers to develop a robust approach to combat food and nutrition literacy concerns in the MENA region.

ABSTRACT

We examined mothers’ health information sources and their relationships with continued participation in health checkups among urban Japanese mothers. Participants were 152 mothers below 40 years old with one or more children under 12 years old. We collected data at a children’s festival in Tokyo in 2019. A self-administered questionnaire was used to collect information regarding health checkups, trusted sources of information regarding mother’s health, and anthropological variables. Continued participation in health checkups was defined as participating in health checkups almost every year during the past five years. Logistic regression analysis was used to adjust for health insurance, mothers’ age, number of children, and current medical history. the sources of mothers’ health information trusted by over 20% of mothers in the two groups were “family”, “friends”, “Web/SNS”, and “healthcare professionals.” However, continued participation in health checkups was significantly associated with only the source of health information from “healthcare professionals” (odds ratio: 2.8 [95% confidence interval: 1.26–6.31], p = 0.01). These findings suggest that reliable information from health professionals encourages urban Japanese mothers’ continued participation in health checkups among Japanese mothers under 40 years old who have children under 12 years of age.

ABSTRACT

Low socioeconomic populations, when compared to more affluent groups, are at greater risk of initiating risky behaviours and consequently developing health complications. Health literacy has been identified as a possible means to improve and sustain positive health behaviours, with adolescence being a time point when such behaviours can be embedded. To develop a meaningful health intervention, it has been recommended that relevant stakeholders be included in the design phase. This formative evaluation study was the second phase of co-design of an engaging health literacy intervention ‘LifeLab’ with, and for, socioeconomically disadvantaged adolescents in Ireland. In Spring 2021, a series of co-design workshops (n = 17) were facilitated with a convenience sample of adolescents from socially disadvantaged areas (n = 22) to gather their perceptions, feedback, and suggested changes on the LifeLab learning activities that had emerged from Phase 1 of the work. The data was analysed using reflexive thematic analysis, resulting in the development of three themes: (i) preferred learning engagement strategies, (ii) practical and logistical considerations and (iii) ideas for LifeLab content. The results highlight the value in adopting a participatory approach, as participants offered an array of suggestions and details to maximise the potential for LifeLab to be contextually relevant and engaging;suggestions which will directly inform the development and implementation of the intervention.

ABSTRACT

Background: Mental health literacy is a determinant of mental health, which can facilitate early detection of psychological problems and endorse timely access to care. Instruments to measure mental health literacy exist, but not in French. Assessment of mental health literacy in young adults is essential to tailor appropriate educational interventions promoting psychological wellbeing and preventing mental health problems in this vulnerable population. The aim of this study was to validate the French version of the Mental Health Literacy Scale (MHLS-FR) in university students. Methods: A total of 482 students from the University of Bordeaux, France, completed the translated version of the scale. Collected data were used to validate the MHLS-FR through psychometric analyses: descriptive statistics, item distribution, test-retest reliability, exploratory structural equation model, confirmatory factor analysis, Cronbach’s alpha and McDonald’s omega coefficients, and hypothesis testing. Results: The final scale included 26 items covering 6 dimensions. Cronbach’s alpha and McDonald’s omega coefficients were 0.744 and 0.961, respectively. With test-retest, about 50% of items had intraclass correlation coefficients superior to 0.5. Conclusions: The MHLS-FR can be considered as a valid and reliable instrument for measuring mental health literacy in French students.

ABSTRACT

BackgroundHealth literacy (HL) is considered a crucial determinant of disease prevention and control. However, the role of HL in the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has not been studied using provincial representative data among Chinese residents. This study aimed to assess the association between HL and COVID-19 awareness among Zhejiang residents based on the 2020 China Health Literacy Survey (CHLS). MethodsThe study was conducted among 5,596 residents aged 15-69 in Zhejiang using multistage, stratified, and probability proportional to size sampling. COVID-19 awareness and HL were assessed using the "Chinese Citizen Health Literacy Questionnaire (2020)" in Zhejiang. The covariates were divided into predisposing factors, enabling factors, and need factors according to Anderson's model. Data were analyzed by the chi-square test and logistic regression. ResultsThe study showed that HL and COVID-19 awareness levels of residents were 24.84% and 8.06%, respectively, in Zhejiang in 2020. After adjusting for covariates, residents with adequate HL were more likely to have better COVID-19 awareness (odds ratio [OR] = 5.22, 95% CI = 4.13-6.59, p < 0.001). Three dimensions of HL (knowledge and attitudes, behavior and lifestyle, and health-related skills) were associated with COVID-19 awareness. Additionally, COVID-19 awareness was associated with age, occupation, family size, annual household income, and chronic conditions. ConclusionCOVID-19 awareness is significantly associated with HL, suggesting that promoting HL is an important component of health education, disease prevention, and health promotion in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and even possible public health emergencies in the future.

ABSTRACT

Objective: to analyze the Mental Health Literacy of young and aged men living in Brazil in the COVID-19 pandemic context. Method: a qualitative study conducted with 87 men by means of an asynchronous online survey. The data were processed in the NVIVO12® software, structured with the Collective Subject Discourse method and analyzed through Anthony Jorm’s theoretical concept of Mental Health Literacy. Results: six central ideas emerged from the analysis of a synthesis discourse on the components of the Mental Health Literacy, namely: Ability to recognize specific disorders or different types of psychological distress;Knowledge and beliefs about risk factors and causes;Knowledge and beliefs about self-help interventions;Knowledge and beliefs about available professional help;Attitudes that facilitate recognition and the search for adequate help;and Knowledge on how to seek information on mental health. Conclusion: there are differences in the mental health literacy of young and aged men living in Brazil during the COVID-19 pandemic. Aged men were more competent for mental health care management and protection than young men, in relation to the Mental Health Literacy levels. © 2022 Revista Latino-Americana de Enfermagem.

ABSTRACT

Background/objectivesRemote monitoring as a component of chronic heart failure (CHF) management programmes has demonstrated utility in reducing the risk of rehospitalisation and mortality. There is little evidence on mobile health app facilitated remote monitoring in India. We conducted a pilot usability and feasibility assessment of a smartphone-based application (Suhriday) to remotely monitor patients with CHF.MethodsWe used a mixed-methods design. Usability testing consisted of the think-aloud approach followed by semistructured in-depth interviews (SSIs) and a satisfaction questionnaire. Feasibility testing was done using acceptability and user satisfaction questionnaires in addition to SSIs. We trained five purposively sampled patients with CHF (based on health literacy and gender) and their caregivers (n=10) in self-care monitoring and app use. Usability was assessed using metrics such as task completion, time required for task completion and user satisfaction using Brooke’s System Usability Scale (SUS). Content analysis of the transcripts with deductive coding was performed for both usability and feasibility interviews. The number and types of medical alerts transmitted through the app were captured and escalated to the treating team.ResultsCritical tasks involving (1) opening the app and identifying task list, (2) reporting blood pressure, weight, heart rate and fluid intake and (3) reporting symptoms were completed within 60 s by four patients. Median (IQR) SUS score was 85 (75–92.5) indicating high level of usability. There were 62 alerts from four patients over 4 weeks, with 36 (58.1%) excess fluid intake alerts and 16 (25.8%) blood pressure variations being the most frequent. One participant had challenges using the app and was monitored through active phone calls.ConclusionOverall usability and satisfaction with Suhriday were good and we were able to remotely manage patients. However, patients with limited health literacy and those facing technological challenges required active structured telephone support.

ABSTRACT

Cyberchondria describes excessive health information seeking on the Internet is associated with escalating concerns and anxiety. Drawing upon the stimulus-organism-response model, this study proposes a moderated mediation model to explore how people develop cyberchondria when they search for COVID-19 vaccine-related information on the Internet. To test the proposed model, an online survey was conducted in China. Results showed that there was a direct and positive relationship between exposure to online vaccine information and cyberchondria. This relationship was also partially mediated by perceived information overload. Moreover, e-health literacy negatively moderated the indirect relationship between exposure to online vaccine information and cyberchondria through perceived information overload. The results from this study can advance our knowledge on the development of cyberchondria during public health crises, and inform health professionals and social media operators on developing evidence-based interventions to manage this issue.

ABSTRACT

The COVID-19 pandemic has posed significant challenges to (expectant) mothers of infants in terms of family health protection. To meet these challenges in a health literate manner, COVID-19 protective measures must be considered important and must also be implemented appropriately in everyday life. To this end, N = 343 (expectant) mothers of infants indicated (a) how important they considered 21 COVID-19 infection prevention measures, and (b) how well they succeeded in implementing them in their daily life (20 measures). We performed data analysis using exploratory factor analysis for ordinal data and latent class analysis. One- and two-dimensional models (CFI = .960 / .978;SRMR = .053 / .039) proved to appropriately explain maternal importance ratings. The items on successfully applying COVID-19 measures in daily life can be modeled by the 5 factors hygiene measures, contact with other people, public transportation, staying at home, and checking infection status (CFI = 0.977;SRMR = .036). Six latent classes can be distinguished. Despite the largest class (39 %), classes are characterized by selective or general applicability problems. Classes reporting problems in the applicability of the measures rated them as generally less important (eta = .582). Assessing and modelling importance and applicability of COVID-19 prevention measures allows for a psychometrically sound description of subjective perceptions and behaviors that are crucial for health literate practice in maternal daily life.

ABSTRACT

Health information needs to be accessible to all people, especially in emergencies and critical times of need such as the COVID-19 pandemic. Health information needs to be designed to meet the needs of a broad range of people, including Deaf and hard of hearing people who use American Sign Language. An Inclusive Design Thinking framework provides the process and structure for collaborative teams to work together to produce solutions that meet the needs of diverse audiences, including people with disabilities. Design Thinking is a human-centered problem-solving method that puts users at the center of the design process. Inclusive Design Thinking includes the end users throughout the design process, considers barriers users may face when accessing information, and seeks to remove these barriers through information design that is accessible to the intended audience. This case study provides the details of a collaborative effort by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Georgia Tech Center for Inclusive Design and Innovation (CIDI), ASL interpreters, Deaf and hard of hearing community members and advocates, and other community members to design and disseminate health information during the COVID-19 pandemic while addressing health literacy and digital accessibility best practices. © ATIA 2022.

ABSTRACT

The new coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2 causes COVID-19, which caused a pandemic. The highly contagious disease has led the whole world to unprecedented business, humanitarian and human challenges. But, as always, any risk can be recognized as a new opportunity. Thus, people around the world have redefined their understanding for health and well-being. However, it is important that in different geographies and industries people will continue to take advantage of this large-scale experiment caused by the pandemic and to rethink concepts, habits, and policies established long ago, in some cases. The aim of the paper is to explore students’ Covid-19 digital health literacy at Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics, Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”. A standardized questionnaire and scale were used, which aims in providing the ability of comparing the results with other students from other countries, and specialties. The results so far show students reported high HL, and an ability to crosscheck health information, which provides them with satisfaction, regarding to this information. Our students trust modern digital platforms, but also the official heath authorities in the country, including the developed Bulgarian unified information portal, the Ministry of Health, and the Regional Health Inspectorate web pages. © 2022 Copyright for this paper by its authors.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: During the COVID-19 pandemic, lockdown measures were applied worldwide. Objectives: a) To analyze shopping and cooking behavior before and during confinement in Spain. b) To examine changes according to 3 age-ranges: young adults (YA:18–35y), adults (AD:36–55y) and older adults (OA:56–83y). Methods: A cross-sectional online "Corona-Cooking-Survey" (CCS) was performed in Spain during the strictest days of lockdown, from April 17th to June 25th, 2020. CCS tool was designed by FOOMS research group of the University of Antwerp, Gent University and KU Leuven, and was translated into Spanish language and nationally distributed, using Qualtrics® software Version-XM (Provo, UT, USA). Statistical analysis was performed with SPSS Statistics software version 25 (IBMCorp., Armonk, NY, USA). Statistical significance was set at 0.05. All participants accepted an informed consent. The study protocol was approved by the Ethics Committee at the University of Antwerp, Belgium (Ref No: SHW_19_44). Results: A total of 679 (18-83y;YA: n=187(27.5%), AD: n=360(53.01%) and OA: n=132(19.44%)) volunteers fulfilled the CCS-Spain version. Significant increases were found in items such as: planning meals ahead of time, making a list before shopping, thinking about healthy choices, using healthy ingredients to cook and trying a new recipe (all p<0.001). No significant differences were observed for cooking with leftover food in the YA and OA groups (all p>0.05). YA group manifested an increased eggs' supply during the confinement (p<0.001). Similarly, OA group, an increased supply of eggs, milk and dairy (p<0.001);meanwhile, AD group, a supply of significantly less non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages (p<0.001). Conclusions: Sustainable shopping and cooking habits improved during the confinement of the COVID-19 pandemic in the Spanish sample. In young adults no changes regarding shopping for healthy food were observed while in older adults there were no changes regarding cooking with healthy food and ingredients.

ABSTRACT

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is a trusted source for public health information, but people must be able to access and understand that information for it to be used. The CDC and the CDC Foundation recognized the need to ensure that its guidance documents related to COVID-19 were accessible to the full range of individuals with disabilities, including those with intellectual and developmental disabilities who read or listen with comprehension at or below the third-grade level. In response to this need, they contracted with the Center for Literacy and Disability Studies (CLDS), Department of Allied Health Sciences, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and the Center for Inclusive Design and Innovation, Georgia Institute of Technology, to create easy to read versions of a collection of guidance documents related to COVID-19. The CLDS began the process by seeking existing guidelines or research to support the creation of these documents. When no such information was located, the CLDS conducted a systematic review of the literature and developed the Minimized Text Complexity Guidelines. The outcomes and benefit of this work include improved access to critical information regarding COVID-19 for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, as well as other adults who read and listen with comprehension below a third-grade level.
