Abstract

Introduction. Studies on health self-care warn that this is an institutional diffusion strategy centered on the individual without considering the influence of the groups and institutions that the individual interacts with. In this regard, this study aimed to specify a model to prevent risks associated with Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), considering the scenario of the university studied, as well as the findings reviewed in the literature. Method. A non-experimental, cross-sectional and exploratory study was carried out with a non-probabilistic selection of 325 undergraduate students from a public university located in central Mexico. The study considered their attendance to sexual and reproductive health courses, as well as their involvement disseminating the information and distributing condoms among the student community and communities. Results Through a structural model [X2 = 134.25 (23gl) p = .006; GFI = .990; CFI = .997; RMSEA = .008] the finding of information was found to be the factor that reflects self-care, but this variable was spuriously linked to the self-report of condom use (􀀀 = .302). Thus, we recommend the inclusion of other factors such as institutional isomorphism, choice of the couple and the sexual relationship with the couple or companion.
... That is why the state of knowledge has explained from psychosocial, socioeconomic or demographic factors the relationship between health professionals and users of public services, but reproductive participation has been inhibited when considering that users are subjects of care, ignoring their knowledge, preferences and responsibilities innovations. By virtue of the fact that the relationship between society and State has diversified, allowing institutions to include users of public health services in the construction of a promoter identity and manager of health and quality services, either by their evaluations or proposals, we propose the contrast of a model in which accessibility, selectivity, compatibility, accumulation, consensus, responsibility, entrepreneurship and innovation; indicate the emergence of a welfare model guided by consensus and established by the citizen debate (Morales, Lopez, Delgado, Mendoza, Garcia and Olvera, 2018). ...

The exploration of the determinant factor structure of abortive sexuality is the aim of this work. A non-experimental study was carried out with a non-probabilistic selection of 215 students from a public university, considering their participation in sexuality workshops, internships and professional service. Ac transferability, selectivity, compatibility, responsibility, entrepreneurship and innovation whose composition explained 80% of the total variance, but the research design merely finds the stage of research, suggesting the inclusion: a structure of six factors observed of other factors that the literature identifies as pathologies: Stalking, Trolling, Stashing and Bullying.
... Both axes are structured in social variables such as beliefs and values; cognitive variables such as attitudes, knowledge, perceptions and intentions; as well as behavioral variables such as skills and self-care (43). It is a composition of observable, comparable and predictable factors of both axes: that of the effects of confinement and social distancing policies versus the axis of solidarity entrepreneurship between health sectors and civil society (44). ...

Cervical Uterine Cancer is a disease that explains the vulnerability in which women are in terms of reproductive health with an impact on occupational health and public health, even when in Mexico the prevalence rate is lower than the other member countries of the OECD, its impact on Human Development and Local Development shows the importance that the disease have in communities more than in cities where prevention policies through checkups and medical examinations seem to curb the trend, but show the lack opportunities and capacities of health centers in rural areas. To establish the reliability, validity and correlations between the variables reported in the literature with respect to their weighting in a public hospital. A non-experimental, cross-sectional and exploratory study was carried out with a non-probabilistic selection of 104 patients from a public hospital in the State of Mexico. The Scale of Psychosocial Variables Determinants of Adherence to Treatment of Cervical Uterine Cancer was constructed. From a structural model it was demonstrated the adjustment of the trajectories of determining relationships in which knowledge influenced the behavior of adherence to treatment. The limits of the design, sampling and analysis of the study are noted and it is recommended to include organizational and psychological variables supported by theories of organizations and theories of personality.
... The psychological variables of beliefs, dispositions, knowledge and intentions would be influenced by the demands of the environment or risks to health such as the case of diseases and accidents in the occupational field [44]. ...

Background: Psychological studies of adherence to treatment have established; 1) indicators models -frequency of medical consultation, prevalence of medication intake over any other treatment, attendance at therapeutic and rehabilitation sessions-; 2) determining models -sex, age, income, level of instruction, reading comprehension, interpersonal relationships-; 3) mediating models-beliefs, attitudes, knowledge, intentions, and strategies. Objective: Specify a model of the organizational and subjective determinants of adherence to treatment in cases of injured or sick workers due to their work activity, climate of relationships and task climate. Method: Documentary study with a selection of indexed sources in repositories of Latin America -Dialnet, Latindex, Publindex, Redalyc and Scieloconsidering the variables reported in the state of the art. Results: The specification of the model included four explanatory hypotheses of the trajectories of dependency relationships among the six variables - demands, social support, control, effort, reward and adhesion - taken from the literature review. Discussion: In relation to the models of indicators, the determinant models and the models of mediation, it is recommended to include the variables of work culture, quality of life and subjective well-being in the specified model to study the process that goes from the labor culture and it would culminate with the reinsertion of accident and disease cases. Conclusion: The new specification of the model would include explanatory hypotheses of the trajectories of correlations between the variables used in the present work with the purpose of establishing differences between the organizations that provide social security with respect to the companies managed from labor flexibility, as well as their effects on the occupational health of its workers
... In the case of the multicultural model in which mitigation strategies are activated based on the dominant values and norms of exclusion, even when services are concerned, political legitimization has been generated [23]. It is about risk management based on the communication and amplification of exclusion, containment and mitigation zones according to the evolution of cases [24]. ...
... The psychological variables of beliefs, dispositions, knowledge and intentions would be influenced by the demands of the environment or risks to health such as the case of diseases and accidents in the occupational field [44]. ...

This was the birth of the so-called "junk consultation" that leads to countless complains from users (our patients) who are rushed inside a world of unnecessary tests, studies, and procedures that have an excessive, and in most countries, unsustainable cost for the healthcare system. The irony is that by improving life expectancy we end up having more old patients who, on many occasions, suffer from loneliness and grief. With today's medical approach, doctors simply cannot bring any remedies to them. Instead, nearness is needed here to examine the natural condition of man and be able to develop our profession fully by offering that lenitive as part of the medical prescription. Ms. Ellen Trane Nørby, secretary of health in Denmark, one of the highest ranking countries in effective healthcare systems worldwide has said: "Something must be wrong in Denmark when we're spending 50% of the healthcare budget in the last 90 days of a human life to delay the inevitable in just a few weeks."2 Abandonment, sadness, and isolation in old patients who live in developed countries generates astronomical costs at the ER when they are actually looking for social support. An article published on The New York Times3 has brought the program Element Care-non lucrative and for old adults-to everyone's attention. This program provides those elderly who are eligible with one tablet with a software and a virtual pet that interacts with them, talks to them about sports and pastimes, brain was performed and demonstrated a hypodense area of the left upper parietal centrum semiovale [Fig 1]. A subsequent magnetic resonance imaging scan of the brain showed a large space-occupying lesion at the left parietal area [fig 2-7]. Abstarct The objective of this work was to establish the meta-analytic validity of the Intellectual Capital Scale. A systematic, retrospective, documentary study was carried out with a selection of sources indexed to international repositories, considering the period from 2010 to 2020, as well as the search by keywords. The null hypothesis contrast was established, which warns the validity of the dimensions; trust, commitment, entrepreneurship and innovation, although the literature also reports factors such as cognitivism, satisfaction and competitiveness, suggesting the extension of work to the comparison of these dimensions. Results are discussed considering the covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.

The current study attempts to provide a more detailed investigation regarding the effects of procrastination on well-being in a sample of Turkish undergraduate students (N = 348). Results confirm prior evidence suggesting that procrastination and self-esteem were important predictors of well-being. Results also indicated that both procrastination and academic performance have direct and interactive effects on self-esteem. Self-esteem mediated the relationships between procrastination and well-being. Furthermore, the indirect effect of procrastination on well-being via mediation of self-esteem may vary depending on academic performance. Findings were discussed in terms of related literature and further suggestions have been made for future studies.

Introducción: El virus del papiloma humano (VPH) tiene una alta prevalencia en mujeres jóvenes, por lo que considera un problema de salud pública. Al respecto, en el año 2011, México ocupó el decimonoveno lugar de las enfermedades transmisibles y más del 90% de casos de cáncer cérvicouterino están ligados a esa enfermedad. El objetivo del estudio fue determinar el nivel de conocimientos sobre el VPH, la vacuna y las conductas de riesgo de mujeres adultas jóvenes de una comunidad rural de San Juan del Río, Querétaro, México. Metodología: El estudio fue transversal, descriptivo, el muestreo fue por conveniencia en mujeres de 20 a 40 años. Se aplicó el instrumento “el VPH y su salud” con un Alfa de Cronbach de 0.79, dividido en datos sociodemográficos, conocimientos de VPH y vacuna, aspectos de salud y fuentes de información. Se encuestó a 45 personas, con una edad de x=27.8 y s=5.9 años. Resultados: El conocimiento de las mujeres respecto del VPH corresponde a un 22% (bueno); 20%, regular; 17.78%, deficiente y 40%, muy deficiente. En cuanto a la vacuna, un 2.2% evidenció excelente conocimiento, mientras que el de un 53.3% fue muy deficiente. En relación con las conductas de riesgo, están en un rango de medio y bajo (46.7%) y alto (2.2%) (inicio temprano de vida sexual, drogas). Conclusión: Es necesario mejorar los conocimientos del VPH para que la población evite el desarrollo del cáncer cérvico-uterino por el virus; además se requiere explicar a las mujeres la inmunización contra el VPH, así como el funcionamiento y la importancia de la administración de la vacuna a niñas.

This article analyzes regulatory ideals about pregnancy and parenthood among young men and women attending both public and private high schools in Antofagasta and Calama, Northern Chile. We looked at gendered and socio-economic dimensions in their subjective and social constructions. Data collection was conducted through semi-structured interviews and focus groups. The findings suggest four regulatory ideals framing the construction of a youths as social subjects: ideals centered on adulthood; gender ideals; religious ideals; and family ideals. Those intervene dinamically, as a socio-cultural regulating framework in the construction of youths as subjects, and in their discourses on pregnancy.

La infección por el virus del papiloma humano es considerada una de las principales causas de neoplasias y lesiones premalignas asociadas a procesos infecciosos. Representa un problema de salud pública en países desarrollados, pero especialmente en aquellos que se encuentran en desarrollo. La expresión clínica más representativa corresponde al cáncer genital, donde el cáncer cervicouterino presenta las tasas más elevadas de incidencia y mortalidad. En artículos anteriores se abordó el estado actual de la vacunación contra el virus del papiloma humano y la prevención de la infección tanto en el hombre como en la mujer. Ahora presentamos avances del conocimiento en torno a estudios epidemiológicos sobre el virus del papiloma humano en México y sobre la vacuna nonavalente, en lo que hemos llamado realidades, y la contraparte denominada mitos, que se refiere a aquellos prejuicios que interfieren en la aceptación de la vacuna. El conocimiento de los estudios sobre los factores socioculturales permitirá una mejor comprensión de este fenómeno para el desarrollo de mejores intervenciones preventivas.
Objetivo: analizar el estado actual de la evidencia de la vacunación para el virus de papiloma humano (VPH) a nivel poblacional teniendo como referente su posible aplicación en Colombia. Metodología: evaluación de estudios fase III sobre las vacunas contra el VPH: estudios de los grupos FUTURE I, II y PATRICIA. Se reflexiona sobre su generalización a nivel poblacional y se analizan factores que limitan su uso. Resultados: la evaluación de estos estudios encuentra limitaciones metodológicas que controvierten la eficacia presentada en las publicaciones de los estudios como son la elección de variables sustitutas inadecuadas, análisis de resultados con variables primarias compuestas que son heterogéneas, análisis por protocolo y no por intención de tratamiento, criterios de inclusión que no sustentan la aplicación poblacional de la vacuna en menores de 15 años y factores que pueden afectar la validez de los estudios como conflictos de intereses y origen del patrocinio. De otra parte, se presentan reportes de complicaciones con la aplicación de la vacuna que brindan una mejor información sobre el verdadero comportamiento de este método de prevención por fuera del diseño experimental. Conclusiones: para el momento de esta revisión no se tiene la suficiente evidencia que sustente la inclusión de la vacuna contra el VPH como programa de vacunación poblacional en Colombia.

En el marco de las políticas de salud, los estudios psicológicos de la adhesión al tratamiento han demostrado que existe un razonamiento de costos y beneficios en torno a la prevención de enfermedades, pero éste proceso deliberado, planificado y sistemático no siempre es reproducido en comunidades migrantes como la del municipio de Huehuetoca, Estado de México. El objetivo del presente trabajo fue establecer los alcances y límites de las políticas de salud centradas en la enfermedad, la atención social y el individuo con la finalidad de discutir la pertinencia de enfocar la política en el sentido de comunidad, normas y valores de una localidad como determinantes de la adhesión al tratamiento del cáncer cervical. Se llevó a cabo un estudio no experimental, exploratorio y transversal con una selección no probabilística de 258 estudiantes de una universidad pública asentada en una comunidad del centro de México. Los resultados muestran que las normas son las determinantes preponderantes de la adhesión y que éste proceso es regulado por creencias de la salud, actitudes hacia la enfermedad e intenciones de tratamiento. Se advierten líneas de investigación para delinear políticas de salud comunitaria.

Introduction: Since our country began to administer the vaccine, some controversy has accompanied the vaccine against Human Papilloma Virus, the absence of long-term results and communication of complications in press. There may be some suspicion by practitioners recommend it. We propose to know what nurses recommend the vaccine. Methods: Observational cross study. We surveyed a group of nurses about their opinions about the vaccine against papillomavirus. Results: A total of 212 nurses. Almost 73% recommend the vaccine, influencing the workplace. 59% believe that condoms prevent transmission but this does not influence the attitude towards the vaccine. Conclusions: Almost a quarter of nurses surveyed would not recommend the vaccine to their patients. There is a need to study more deeply the reasons of these professionals.

The human papilloma virus (HPV) is the main etiological infectious agent associated with the pathogenesis of cervix uteri cancer. It is stated that the knowledge of virology and the clinical manifestations of this virus are the fundamental link in the understanding of the neoplastic process. The epidemiological studies of the premalignant lesions of the cervix uteri have showed a strong association between sexual practice and the appearance of malignant tumors. It is indicated that women with multiple sexual patterns, pregnancies and abortions at an early age and history of infections, increase the risk of suffering from this disease.
