Infographic: 10 common diet traps your patients can avoid

One researcher calls new data on obesity in America “a wake-up call.”

The past 20 years have seen a startling spike in the number of overweight and obese people in the U.S. Highlights from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention paint a dismal picture, one that can improve with the help of health care communicators, marketers and PR pros.

The CDC says around 70 percent of people age 25 and older are overweight or obese. That’s a jump from nearly 60 percent two decades ago.

The Washington Post says this marks the first time obese/overweight people outnumber those who maintain a healthy weight.

In rethinking your outreach efforts, consider the diet traps outlined in this infographic. Many of your patients probably experience these challenges as they battle the scale. You can encourage them to:

  • Eat three meals a day.

  • Pay attention to nutrition labels, especially calories, saturated fat and sodium.

  • Listen to their bodies and avoid emotional eating.

  • Exercise at least five days a week.

  • Ingest vitamins and minerals to boost energy levels.

  • Get back on track despite a splurge.

Infographic: How to combat misperceptions about post-traumatic stress

An estimated five percent of Americans have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) at any given time.

It’s most often linked with wounded warriors and combat veterans, yet it can result from many life events outside of a war zone. Identifying persons suffering from PTSD requires changing the narrative of who is at-risk and how the condition can start or be exacerbated.

This infographic helps to shift perception of the patient population and offer some tools for addressing PTSD, such as:

  • Common causes
  • Symptoms and physical signs
  • Treatment options

 

 

How are you working to combat misperceptions about PTSD and encourage patients to seek treatment?

Infographic: Encourage your community to donate blood

One pint of blood collected at a donation has the potential to save three lives. Still, factors such as inclement weather keep people away from giving plasma and platelets this time of year.

To help meet the demand, the American Red Cross promotes blood donations each January.

This infographic about National Blood Donor Month—which began in 1970—offers health care pros ideas for community outreach. For example:

  • Approximately 80 percent of donations are collected at mobile sites.

  • Some 50,000 sponsors work with the Red Cross each year to collect blood.

  • Around 15 minutes is the average time needed for the actual donation.

There are compelling statistics here as well. Take a look:

Infographic: Understanding the complexities of epilepsy

Epilepsy affects 2.2 million people in the U.S.

The neurological disorder often causes unexplained seizures. According to an infographic from Mount Sinai Medical Center, doctors and researchers don’t know what causes the abnormal electrical activity in the brain.

If a person experiences two or more seizures not caused by an illness or another trigger, he or she is considered to have epilepsy.

Those with an increased risk of the disorder may have:

  • Suffered a brain injury

  • Been exposed to toxics such as arsenic, lead or carbon monoxide

  • A family history of Alzheimer’s disease

  • Used certain medicines or recreational drugs

  • Been diagnosed with autism, cerebral palsy or other developmental disabilities

This infographic can help patients and medical professionals recognize symptoms of epilepsy and how it can be diagnosed:

Infographic: The 10 dirtiest things people touch daily

Do you know the dirtiest things people touch every day?

Yes, providers can encourage the public to properly wash their hands, get flu shots and take other preventative measures to stay healthy this winter season. Patients and providers alike may be surprised at how prevalent germs are in our everyday lives.

According to this infographic, kitchen sponges, shopping carts and computer keyboards are rife with bacteria and germs. For example:

  • MRSA, VRE and SARS bacteria are easily transferrable in the handling of TV remotes.

  • Some 135,000 bacteria have been found when washing a dollar bill.

  • On light switches, there are approximately 217,000 bacteria per square inch.

Infographic: Health care consumers balking at wearables

There’s only a “moderate appetite” for wearables that can improve health and wellness.

Does the public’s hesitation reflect lackluster messaging? How might medical marketers team with doctors and clinicians to help consumers embrace wearable technology?

Recent data show that chronic conditions are managed better when patients participate in their monitoring and treatment. Communicators can look at this infographic and cite the benefits in their own marketing. 

[RELATED: Webcast: Advanced writing and editing for corporate communicators.]

Still, a survey from iTriage reveals costs are an issue, too:

  • More than 75 percent of people would use a wearable device if their doctor recommended or provided it.

  • Nearly 70 percent of consumers would use a wearable if their insurer recommended or provided it.

Other respondents said they are hesitant because the technology is overly complicated.

Can you fine-tune your marketing efforts to help sway reluctant patients?

Infographic: How to market to 6 health care consumer segments

When it comes to health care, consumer engagement is transforming in three key areas. A recent study from Deloitte finds that patients:

  • Want improved partnerships with providers

  • Use and trust online resources and information

  • Rely on technology to measure fitness and monitor health online

RELATED: Get live tours of industry-leading intranets that put the right information at employees’ fingertips

This infographic offers insights about the six kinds of health care consumers, and how communicators can best reach each group. For example:

  • Nearly 35 percent are casual and cautious consumers, are not very engaged and have little interest in health technology.

  • More than 20 percent are content with their providers, comply with instructions and ask questions during office visits.

  • About 20 percent are happy with their care and prefer to interact with their physicians electronically.

Look at the full infographic to get a better picture of today’s engaged consumers:

Infographic: How to overcome the stigma of postpartum depression

Last month, actress Hayden Panettiere talked about her struggles with postpartum depression on national television. The 26-year-old appeared on “Live! With Kelly and Michael” and admitted that the birth of her daughter, now a year old, has wreaked emotional havoc on her life.

“It’s something that’s completely uncontrollable. It’s really painful, and it’s really scary, and women need a lot of support,” Panettiere said.

This week, news broke that Panettiere had checked into a treatment center for professional help.

Communicators can use this infographic to educate people about the emotional fragilities that can occur after a woman gives birth. “Baby blues” are a milder form of PPD and can last up to two weeks. Women who have prolonged symptoms should seek professional help.

Signs of postpartum depression include:

  • Insomnia

  • Loss of appetite

  • Intense irritability and anger

  • Decreased libido

  • Feelings of shame or inadequacy

  • Overwhelming fatigue

It’s interesting to note that PPD affects as many as 10 percent of fathers in the first year, too.
