ABSTRACT

Introduction: Internet users frequently search for information on health issues. The behavior of Internet users may be related to health contexts experienced in their communities, reflecting unmet demands. Objective: To analyze the interest of Internet users on breast cancer in Brazil between 2017 and 2021. Method: An infodemiological study was carried out using the relative search volume (ranging from 0 to 100) for the term "câncer de mama" (breast cancer) in Brazil, retrieved from the Google Trends tool. The annual relative search volume was compared with a non-parametric approach and significance value (p) of 5%. Results: Except between 2019 and 2020 (p-value>0.05), there was a significant increase in Internet searches for the term "câncer de mama" in Brazil (all p-values <0.05). The peak of interest (relative search volume=100) was found in October 2020. Internet users who searched for the term "câncer de mama" often searched for signs and symptoms of breast cancer. Conclusion: The interest of Internet users on breast cancer has increased in recent years in Brazil.

ABSTRACT

Introdução: As campanhas de conscientização da população sobre o câncer e seus fatores de risco objetivam incentivar as pessoas a terem comportamentos mais saudáveis. É essencial avaliar os resultados dessas campanhas na alteração do interesse e do comportamento da população sobre o tema. Objetivo: Analisar o impacto das campanhas de conscientização dos diferentes tipos de câncer sobre o interesse dos internautas por meio do Google Trends. Método: Revisão integrativa da literatura, incluindo estudos primários que analisaram os impactos das campanhas a partir do Google Trends, disponíveis nas bases PubMed, Scopus, Web of Science e LILACS. Resultados: Dos 179 artigos encontrados, foram incluídos 19 para análise. O impacto das campanhas variou em efetividade, dependendo do tipo de câncer abordado, da região de realização e do alcance. Fatores externos às campanhas tiveram efeito sinérgico ou concorrente no interesse populacional sobre os temas abordados. Conclusão: O aumento do interesse populacional, quando existente, nem sempre se traduziu em maior conscientização sobre as formas de prevenção e diagnóstico do câncer. Devem-se aprimorar as formas de realização das campanhas visando aumentar o interesse populacional sobre o tema e viabilizar mudanças de comportamento de longo prazo.


Introduction: Population awareness campaigns about cancer and its risk factors aim to encourage people to have healthier behaviors. It is essential to evaluate these campaigns' results on the interest and behavior of the population. Objective: To analyze the impact of awareness campaigns of different types of cancer on the interest of internet users through Google Trends. Method: An integrative literature review was carried out, including primary studies that analyzed the impacts of campaigns from Google Trends available in PubMed, Scopus, Web of Science and LILACS databases. Results: Of the 179 articles found, 19 were included for analysis. The impact of the campaigns varied in effectiveness, depending on the type of cancer addressed, the region they were carried out and reach. Off-campaigns factors had a synergistic or concurrent effect on the population's interest in the topics covered. Conclusion: The increase of the population interest, if the case, has not always translated into greater awareness about ways of preventing and diagnosing cancer. How The ways the campaigns are carried out must be improved in order to increase the population's interest in the topic and make long-term behavioral changes possible.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: People base their health decisions on the information they obtained from their environment, which includes health care providers, the media, and interpersonal networks. Learning about patterns of information acquisition allows the identification of people's preferred sources. Aim: To report the results of a survey about health information seeking, source trust, and routine exposure to health information. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A health information trend survey, modeled after the U.S. National Cancer Institute's Health Information National Trends Survey was answered by 1411 Chilean participants aged over 25 years. Results: Seventy six percent of respondents sought general health information at least once. Internet (32%) and the health care center (30%) were the most common sources. One fourth of respondents sought, during the last 30 days, information about physical activity, and one third about fruit and vegetable consumption. Physicians and other healthcare workers were the most trusted sources, but only half of participants recalled having received a recommendation from them regarding the practice of healthy behaviors. CONCLUSIONS: This survey about health information seeking is a valuable tool to learn about people's health information environments and how these contents can influence their practices.

ABSTRACT

La infodemiología e infovigilancia son métodos informáticos para el análisis y seguimiento de los datos de Internet, y permiten tomar conciencia de las situaciones y crear políticas sanitarias. Este estudio se propuso analizar las tendencias de búsqueda de dióxido de cloro y términos equivalentes en Internet (chlorine dioxide solution, CDS; miracle mineral solution, MMS), en relación con la morbilidad y mortalidad por COVID-19 en ocho países de Latinoamérica. Para ello se utilizó Google Trends; el período examinado fue del 1ro de marzo al 25 de noviembre de 2020. Se calculó la media móvil por 7 días para el volumen relativo de búsqueda (VRB), la tasa de morbilidad y mortalidad. Para la asociación de las variables cuantitativas, se utilizó el coeficiente de correlación de Spearman con un nivel de significancia p < 0,05. El país con mayor interés de búsqueda fue Bolivia; el de menor interés, Brasil. El análisis del VRB con la tasa de morbilidad y mortalidad fue diferente entre países. Los picos máximos de VRB de Colombia y Chile, en abril, y de México, Ecuador y Bolivia, en julio, coincidieron con la emisión de alertas sanitarias sobre dióxido de cloro. La mayoría mostró una correlación significativa moderada y baja entre el VRB y el número de casos confirmados y muertes diarias por COVID-19. El comportamiento de las búsquedas, diferenciado entre países, podría indicar mayor interés por el tema dióxido de cloro en pandemia; lo cual se explicaría por la difusión de alertas sanitarias de organismos de salud internacionales, regionales y locales(AU)


Infodemiology and infovigilance are computer methods for the analysis and monitoring of Internet data, and allow awareness of situations and creation of health policies. This study aimed to analyze the search trends for chlorine dioxide and equivalent terms on the Internet (chlorine dioxide solution, CDS; miracle mineral solution, MMS), in relation to COVID-19 morbidity and mortality in eight Latin American countries. Google Trends was used for this purpose; the period reviewed was from March 1st to November 25th 2020. The 7-day moving average for relative search volume (VRB), morbidity and mortality rate were calculated. For the association of quantitative variables, the Spearman correlation coefficient was used with a significance level p < 0.05. The country with the highest search interest was Bolivia; the one with the least interest, Brazil. The analysis of the VRB with the morbidity and mortality rate was different between countries. The maximum VRB peaks of Colombia and Chile, in April, and of Mexico, Ecuador and Bolivia, in July, coincided with the issuance of health alerts on chlorine dioxide. Most showed a moderate and low significant correlation between VRB and the number of confirmed cases and daily deaths from COVID-19. The behavior of the searches, differentiated between countries, could indicate greater interest in the topic of chlorine dioxide during the pandemic; this would be explained by the dissemination of health alerts from international, regional and local health agencies(AU)

ABSTRACT

Resumo Este artigo parte de uma abordagem qualitativa em páginas no Facebook (FB) para analisar sentidos do consumo de informações sobre alimentação saudável e dietas atribuídos por internautas. Foram realizadas observações com registro em diário de campo durante oito meses e entrevistas semiestruturadas com 10 internautas, norteadas por roteiro específico. As páginas refletem um mercado de emagrecimento que não é explícito para os consumidores. Todos os entrevistados acessam o FB diariamente, sendo que o consumo de informações variou entre os que buscam "o tempo todo", "às vezes" e "quando aparece na timeline". As informações são submetidas a processos de filtragem e validação mediados por experiências, por pares ou comparações em fontes diversas da Web- de modo a fazerem sentido. Internautas agenciam seus cuidados alimentares a partir de novos elementos "garimpados" na rede - as comunidades virtuais fazem parte de itinerários de autocuidado alimentar pautados no autocontrole e disciplinarização dos corpos. As análises podem contribuir para a compreensão e perspectivas de utilização das redes social por comunicadores em saúde e debates sobre o papel das mídias sociais no âmbito sanitário e sobre possibilidades de conciliação da lógica da mídia com a lógica da promoção da saúde.


Abstract This article starts from a qualitative approach on Facebook pages (FB) to analyze the meanings of consumption of information about healthy eating and diets attributed by Internet users. Observations were carried out with a field diary for eight months and semi-structured interviews were carried out with 10 internet users, guided by a specific script. The pages reflect a weight-loss market that is not explicit for consumers. All respondents access FB daily, and the consumption of information varied between those seeking "all the time", "sometimes" and "when it appears on the timeline". The information is subjected to filtering and validation processes mediated by experiences, pairs or comparisons in different sources on the Web - in order to make sense. Internet users organize their dietary care from new elements "mined" in the network - virtual communities are part of self-care itineraries based on self-control and discipline of bodies. The analyzes can contribute to the understanding and perspectives of the use of social networks by health communicators and debates on the role of social media in the health field and on possibilities for reconciling the logic of the media with the logic of health promotion.

ABSTRACT

Durante el ejercicio profesional, los enfermeros les corresponden brindar educación a la comunidad para prevenir la exposición a los riesgos medioambientales e, integrarse y proponer profilaxis en pro del bienestar de la comunidad, en este sentido, les incumben consolidar destrezas que les permitan desarrollar historia ambiental valorando riesgos, diagnosticando problemas, proponiendo intervenciones, evaluando resultados, e incluso identificando los factores peligrosos de acuerdo a vulnerabilidades particulares. Para los estudiantes de enfermería de UNIANDES, el reto, en esta área de formación es doble (investigativa y académica), y lo deben asumir, de manera autodidáctica. Este trabajo pretendió explorar conocimientos, prácticas y habilidades estudiantiles sobre la búsqueda bibliográfica e investigación en salud ambiental. La muestra estuvo conformada por 120 estudiantes. Se precisó que 17,5% poseen conocimiento para realizar búsqueda básica de información, utilizando principalmente el motor web Google 40,8%. El nivel de destreza fue bajo 73,3%; percepción de los estudiantes, mala 49,2%: prácticas para realizar búsqueda, no sabe 54,2%, sin asociación estadísticamente significativa con sexo. Para la percepción del nivel de competencia en investigación y búsqueda de información en salud ambiental: lectura crítica obtuvo 3,08 puntos, seguida de búsqueda de información 2,98 puntos, lo que las clasifican como regular; mientras que, redacción de artículos y el proceso de publicación, ambas con 2,70 puntos; se catalogan deficientes. Estos resultados permiten afirmar que es necesario un acompañamiento permanente en la instrucción sobre el uso de información digital a lo largo de la carrera y con especial atención en el área de salud ambiental(AU)


During professional practice, nurses are responsible for providing education to the community to prevent exposure to environmental risks and integrate and propose prophylaxis for the well-being of the community, in this sense, they are responsible for consolidating skills that allow them to develop environmental history assessing risks, diagnosing problems, proposing interventions, evaluating results, and even identifying dangerous factors according to particular vulnerabilities. For UNIANDES nursing students, the challenge in this training area is twofold (investigative and academic), and they must assume it in a self-taught manner. This work aimed to explore student knowledge, practices and skills on bibliographic search and research in environmental health. The sample consisted of 120 students. It was specified that 17.5% have knowledge to perform basic information searches, mainly using Google web engine 40.8%. The skill level was low 73.3%; perception of the students, poor 49.2%: practices to carry out searches, do not know 54.2%, without statistically significant association with gender. For the perception of the level of competence in research and information search in environmental health: critical reading obtained 3.08 points, followed by information search 2.98 points, which classifies them as regular; while, writing articles and the publication process, both with 2.70 points; are classified as deficient. These results allow us to affirm that permanent accompaniment is necessary in the instruction on the use of digital information throughout the career and with special attention in the area of environmental health(AU)

ABSTRACT

Introduction: adolescents in developing countries are often vulnerable to sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and unplanned pregnancies. It is estimated that about 13 million adolescent girls have unplanned births each year in developing countries. This study examined the scope of the School Health Education Programme (SHEP) and health-seeking behaviours of female adolescents in Junior High School (JHS). Methods: this qualitative research used the narrative approach. Group discussions were conducted among 100 female adolescents aged 12-19 years. Interviews were conducted among five community health workers in five health centres that provide reproductive health services. The in-depth interviews and group discussions were documented, transcribed and analyzed using NVivo 11, whilst thematic analysis was used in analyzing data. Results: the mean age of adolescents was 15.5 years, with 74% reporting having knowledge of STDs. It was observed that the SHEP offers various information on health issues such as menstrual hygiene, STDs, personal hygiene, contraceptives, personal development and unsafe abortion practices. Adolescent reproductive health services were also available in the health centres but patronage was low as a result of perceived negative attitude of health workers and trust. Knowledge on issues of reproductive health is insufficient among JHS female adolescents, with many of them relying on the media and peers for reproductive health support. Conclusion: in this study, female adolescents are generally involved in risky sexual behaviour due to their low level of knowledge on reproductive issues and their unwillingness to patronize available reproductive health services because of the health system and cultural barriers.

ABSTRACT

Aim: This cross-sectional study aimed to investigate where Brazilian dental students seek information about COVID-19 by a self-administered web-based questionnaire. Methods: A social network campaign on Instagram was raised to approach the target population. The dental students responded to a multiple-response question asking where or with whom they get information about COVID-19. The possible answers were government official websites or health and education institutions websites, TV Programs, professors, social media, scientific articles, health professionals, and family members. The data were analyzed by descriptive statistics, and the frequency distributions of responses were evaluated by gender, age, type of institution, and year of enrollment. Results: A total of 833 valid responses were received. The main source of information used by the dental students were government official websites or health and education institutions websites, which were reported by 739 (88.7%) participants. In the sequence, 477 (57.3%) participants chose health professionals while 468 (56.2%) chose scientific articles as information sources. The use of social media was reported by 451 (54.1%) students, while TV programs were information sources used by 332 (39.9%) students. The least used information sources were professors, reported by 317 (38.1%) students, and family members, chosen only by 65 (7.8%) participants. Conclusion: Brazilian dental students rely on multiple information sources to stay informed about COVID-19, mainly focusing their information-seeking behavior on governmental and health professional's websites

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Objective: The big data provided by Google Trends may reveal patterns in health information-seeking behavior on population from Brazil and United States (US). Our objective was to explore and compare patterns of stone disease online information-seeking behaviors in both nations. Materials and Methods: To compare Relative Search Volume (RSV) among different urologic key words we chose "US" and "Brazil" as country and "01/01/2009 - 31/12/2018" as time-range. The final selection included 12 key words in each language. We defined "ureteroscopy" as a reference and compared RSV against it for each term. RSV was adjusted by the reference and normalized in a scale from 0-100. Trend presence was evaluated by Mann Kendall Test and magnitude by Sen's Slope (SS) Estimator. Results: We found an upward trend (p <0.01) in most of the researched terms in both countries. Higher temporal trends were seen for "Kidney Stone" (SS=0.36), "Kidney Pain" (SS=0.39) and "Tamsulosin" (SS=0.21) in the US. Technical treatment terms had little search volumes and no increasing trend. "Kidney Stent" and "Double J" had a significant increase in search trend over time and had a relevant search volume overall in 2018. In Brazil, "Calculo Renal", "Colica Renal", "Dor no Rim" and "Pedra no Rim" had a significant increase in RSV (p <0.001). More common and popular terms as "Kidney Stent" and "Tamsulosin" were highly correlated with "Kidney Pain" and "Kidney Stone" in both countries. Conclusions: In the last decade, there was a significant increase in online search for medical information related to stone-disease. Population from both countries tend to look more for generic terms related to symptoms, the disease, medical management and kidney stent, than for technical treatment vocabulary.

ABSTRACT

Este trabajo tuvo como objetivo describir el diseño, la validación y la implementación de un entorno virtual de enseñanza-aprendizaje como recurso didáctico de la alfabetización informacional. Se realizó una investigación aplicada, de innovación tecnológica, y con un estudio descriptivo en el Hospital Provincial General Docente Dr. Antonio Luaces Iraola, de Ciego de Ávila. Se utilizó el soporte tecnológico de la plataforma Moodle. La investigación se realizó en tres fases (facto perceptible, construcción de los aportes y validación y aplicación de los aportes); se validó por criterios de expertos el entorno virtual de aprendizaje y se aplicó en 55 participantes. El diseño del EVEA-salud posibilitó la autogestión y el aprendizaje desarrollador de los participantes en calidad de estudiantes. La validación por criterio de expertos no solo permitió evaluar la factibilidad y la pertinencia científico-metodológica del entorno virtual de enseñanza aprendizaje, sino también su enriquecimiento. El alto porcentaje de aprobados con calificación de bien y excelente demostró que los participantes desarrollaron competencias informacionales en torno al adecuado manejo de las fuentes de información y el uso de la información científica. Esta investigación aporta un conocimiento nuevo sobre la utilidad de la implementación de un entorno virtual de enseñanza aprendizaje como recurso didáctico de la alfabetización informacional para el desarrollo de competencias informacionales en salud(AU)


The purpose of the study was to describe the design, validation and implementation of a virtual teaching-learning environment as a didactic resource for information literacy training. An applied descriptive technological innovation analysis was conducted at Dr. Antonio Luaces Iraola Provincial General University Hospital in Ciego de Avila. Use was made of the technological support in the Moodle platform. The research developed along three stages: facto-perceptible, development and validation of contributions, and application of contributions). The virtual learning environment was validated by expert criteria and applied to 55 participants. The EVEA-health design fostered self-management and skill-developing learning among student participants. Validation by expert criteria not only made it possible to evaluate the feasibility and scientific-methodological relevance of the virtual teaching-learning environment, but also its enrichment. The high percentage of good and excellent scores showed that participants developed information competencies related to the appropriate management of information sources and the use of scientific data. The study contributes new knowledge about the usefulness of implementing a virtual teaching-learning environment as a didactic resource for information literacy training and the development of health information competencies(AU)
