Abstract
The significance of strengthening the research in the field of public health is underlined by the increasingly important health development strategies in the scope of which the research in the field of public health supports the health policy. On the other hand, the research of public health contributes significantly also to science with its specific work methods, especially epidemiological. The need for in-depth research in the field of public health that would upgrade the findings based on the fundamental health statistics is constantly increasing. The next characteristic of research in the field of public health is the need for interdisciplinary co-operation which is why the key thematic sets selected on the basis of importance of the problems of modern public health in Slovenia were defined in the proposed research programme. These sets include PUBLIC MENTAL HEALTH which represents one of the fundamental public health problems of the future, ALERT NETWORKS FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF COMMUNICABLE DISEASES that will facilitate efficient control over the communicable diseases, and QUALITY FAMILY MEDICINE which is the basis for a quality health service. The selected infections and communicable diseases are a serious public health problem. The currently available data received from the national epidemiological monitoring do not allow for a realistic estimate of their burden and the population trends. The results of the research programme will provide data for the formation of a quality national doctrine and policy for the prevention and management of mumps, Varicella-Zoster virus infections and hospital infections, infections related to travelling and tracking of the efficiency of these programmes. As there are several factors that influence mental health, namely biological and psychological, economic, political and cultural, the measuring system must be designed so as to include all the significant determinants of mental health. The proposed sets of research projects in the field of mental health are: Indicators of public mental health, Scope and manageability of certain most frequent forms of mental disorders, Monitoring of health indicators in certain specific groups of population and Evaluation of promotion and prevention materials. Family medicine is a professional upgrade of general medicine. It is a profession that has recently experienced a fast development. The development of a new specialisation arising from family medicine guarantees that quality development of the profession will also continue in this area. The findings of the research programme will help us to actively participate in the provision of specialist studies in the field of family medicine and also in under- and post-graduate educational programmes.
Significance for science
The gathered data enabled us insight into mental health inequalities. The results of in-depth study of infectious diseases have brought new insights in the field of infectious diseases preventable by vaccination, vector diseases and acute respiratory infections and form the basis for an adequate response to health threaths. Knowledge developed in the context of our research and international cooperation is of great importance for the development of modern biological and medical anthropological science in Slovenia. With the help of foreign scientists are trying to develop this important Sciences at the global level and, therefore, also participates in various international sodelovanja.-translate GENETICS IN FAMILY MEDICINE Our main purpose of the survey was to examine the role of genetic factors, it appears from the family history in the treatment of patients in family medicine. We have found that it is only on the basis of family history, no genetic testing, it is possible to determine the degree of risk for the development of cardiovascular, diabetes, and cancer as well as depression. We have also found that they were family doctors willing to perform tasks related to genetics, the everyday management of patients, but in doing so they want additional training. Based on the findings we will be able to plan measures to improve the treatment of patients in family medicine in the field of medical genetics and adequate educational measures to improve knowledge in this field. DOMESTIC VIOLENCE Violence should be the resolution of the World Health Organization in public health considered a priority due to short-term and long-term consequences for individuals, families, the environment, the country, as well as for health systems. Compared to the epidemic of chronic disease is more common and can be prevented, which is a challenge for family medicine in Slovenia. In our research we determined the frequency of intimate partner violence in family medicine clinics visitors and created a model by which we identify factors associated with the experience of intimate partner violence. The incidence of intimate partner violence in Slovenia, found in the environment of family medicine, is 18%, which is comparable with the results of other studies. In addition, female and divorce in the past have been identified demographic factors associated with the experience of intimate partner violence and unemployment is higher or university education and the duration of the partnership over six years. Among the risk factors for violence were still alcohol and drugs in the family and the older age partner. Age over 65 years and parenting two children were found as a protective factor against violence in partner relationships.
Significance for the country
Research of mental health and mental health inequalites is the key factor for planning the prevention of mental health disorder and mental health promotion. New scientific findings of studies that have been conducted in national contexts beyond the mere transfer of foreign scientific knowledge into the local environment, are based on specific experience and thus represent a significantly higher added value with the possibility of direct application without any adjustment. Knowledge developed in the context of our research and international cooperation is of great importance for the development of modern biological and medical anthropological science in Slovenia. With the help of foreign scientists are trying to develop this important Sciences at the global level and, therefore, also participates in various international sodelovanja.-translate GENETICS IN FAMILY MEDICINE Our main purpose of the survey was to examine the role of genetic factors, it appears from the family history in the treatment of patients in family medicine.
