Public health In the intervention communities, the paid advertising campaign was then followed by 2 years of community activities led by a network of approximately volunteers working in 24 counties and two reservations.
The intervention sample was drawn from 1 September through 31 August from the same list of newspapers. We also do not know, how often and what health articles are published in the daily newspaper of Manipur. Article coding We established an a priori coding system based on systems used in previously published systematic media content analyses [ 16 — 19 ].
Studies by Johnson and Meischke Johnson and Meischke, a , b clearly identified media as a main source of cancer-related information and a study by Meischke et al. The advertising campaign was designed to increase perceptions of personal vulnerability for breast cancer. Abstract Background This study investigated the nature of newspaper reporting about online health information in the UK and US.
Newspapers have the potential to influence public health behaviours, but information has been lacking in relation to how newspapers portray online health information to their readers. Among all the health-related articles, almost half were related with injury followed by public health articles. Newspapers are an important element of the mass media and approximately one third of adults in Great Britain read at least one national daily newspaper each day [ 14 ]. The three variables were standardized and added to form an index. Newspapers from advanced countries have predominant focus on clinical trials, issues of global health, health policy, and laws, etc.
The spokespeople included breast cancer survivors, mammography advocates and physicians or other health professionals who fit the testimonials presented in the advertisements.
Introduction The general public relies on the media as important sources of health information Wade and Schramm, ; Toggerson, ; Freimuth et al. The BCSC was part of a research project devoted to promoting mammography screening in a Midwestern state. Exception was made for feature stories focused on breast cancer or mammography, but where the reference was not made in the headline or initial paragraph.
The BCSC included both paid advertising and volunteer-led community interventions that were intended, in part, to increase the flow of information about breast cancer and mammography screening in the local mass media. Health-related articles published in everyday local newspapers were collected after careful search and finally entered into a design Proforma under different categories.
Medium size articles: articles containing — words or photograph area — cm2.
The intervention sample was drawn from 1 September through 31 August from the same list of newspapers. Local newspapers in Manipur were categorized into A, B, C, and D groups according to their circulation size. Community-based groups that seek to advocate change may be more successful if they first identify and then gain the cooperation of the sources of power and influence within the community Viswanath et al. Newspapers of both the languages published maximum small size articles.
If newspaper reporting is inaccurate, imbalanced, or incomplete, readers may develop unrealistic perceptions of the value of online health information, therefore, the aim of the present study was to investigate how newspapers in the UK and US portray health information on the Internet, including social media, websites and blogs, to the public in terms of the frequency, nature and quality of reporting.
Abstract Background This study investigated the nature of newspaper reporting about online health information in the UK and US.
