Abstract
The article deals with the results of study of factual volumes of medical care according its main services provided to total population and to people older than able-bodied population in Nizhny Novgorod oblast. The study demonstrated that during last ten years, the character of organization and application of main volumes of medical care to people older than able-bodied population factually had no changes and does not correspond to the planned volumes of territorial program of public guarantees of free medical care. The increase of volume of emergency medical care in functioning of ambulance and emergency care service shortens possibilities of emergency medical care support and promote misallocation of financial resources. The level of medical care support of people older than able-bodied population in day-and-night hospitals is high at the same time it is lower in nursing departments and out-patient clinics. To provide the accessibility and quality of medical services to people older than able-bodied population the restructuration of medical care is needed to increase the volume of hospital-substituting types of medical care and to organize the service of specialized palliative care primarily for oncological patients.

Abstract
The proportion of older persons is increasing in developed and developing countries: this aging trend can be viewed as a two-edged sword. On the one hand, it represents remarkable successes regarding advances in health care; and on the other hand, it represents a considerable challenge for health systems to meet growing demand. A growing disequilibrium between supply and demand may be particularly challenging within publicly funding health systems that 'guarantee' services to eligible populations. Rehabilitation, including physical therapy, is a service that if provided in a timely manner, can maximize function and mobility for older persons, which may in turn optimize efficiency and effectiveness of overall health care systems. However, physical therapy services are not considered an insured service under the legislative framework of the Canadian health system, and as such, a complex public/private mix of funding and delivery has emerged. In this article, we explore the consequences of a public/private mix of physical therapy on timely access to services, and use the World Health Organization (WHO) health system performance framework to assess the extent to which the emerging system influences the goal of aggregated and equitable health. Overall, we argue that a shift to a public/private mix may not have positive influences at the population level, and that innovative approaches to deliver services would be desirable to strengthening rather than weaken the publicly funded system. We signal that strategies aimed at scaling up rehabilitation interventions are required in order to improve health outcomes in an evolving global aging society.

Abstract
Studies of the systems of medical care for patients with acute disorders of brain circulation indicate that well-organized "stroke" service promotes morbidity decrease, lowers neurological deficit expression and restriction of social and daily activities. At the same time, there are essential differences in the scope of the medical care, which a patient can receive in different countries and no consensus on the most optimal system of medical scope for patients with stroke at different stages. The recent statistical reviews confirm that a patient admitted to specialized stroke departments has a less chance to die or to be a handicap. The article analyzes current systems service for patients with acute disorders of brain blood circulation in the United States, Europe and Russia.

Abstract
Attracting and retaining nurses in HIV care is essential to treatment success, preventing the spread of HIV, slowing its progression, and improving the quality of life of people living with HIV. Despite the wealth of studies examining HIV care, few have focused on the factors that influenced nurses' choices to specialize in HIV care. We examined the factors that attracted and retained eight nurses currently working in HIV care in two large Canadian cities. Participants were primarily women between the ages of 20 and 60 years. Interviews were conducted between November 2010 and September 2011 using interpretive description, a qualitative design. Factors that influenced participants to focus their careers in HIV care included both attracting factors and retaining factors. Although more research is needed, this exploration of attracting and retaining factors may motivate others to specialize in HIV nursing, and thus help to promote adequate support for individuals suffering from the disease.

Abstract
To describe the administrative functioning of all current Canadian psychiatry residency training programs (RTPs) and to suggest available improvements to existing systems.
We obtained data about the 2004 RTPs by distributing 2 questionnaires to all Canadian psychiatry RTPs.
Residency program committees (RPCs) are mainly consultative and carry only a small amount of the workload of managing a residency program. Program directors (PDs) manage more than 80% of the work and report that the time allowance to perform their duties is suboptimal. PDs remain in office for about 5 years, departing during or at the end of a predetermined second term.
RPCs bear only a small amount of the workload generated by the RTP. We piloted administrative changes that led to more equitable work distribution.

Abstract
Cardiac rehabilitation programs develop in accordance with guidelines, but also in response to local needs and resources. This study evaluated features of Ontario cardiac rehabilitation programs in accordance with guidelines, emerging evidence and treating underserved populations.
In this cross-sectional study, all Ontario cardiac rehabilitation programs were mailed an investigator-generated survey. Responses were received from 38 of 45 (84.4%) programs.
Twenty-seven (71.1%) cardiac rehabilitation programs were located within a hospital. Twenty-four (63.2%) programs reported that they offer two sessions of exercise and education per week. Twenty-six (68.4%) programs offered an alternative model of program delivery other than on-site, with 10 (27.0%) programs reporting they tailored their programs to rural patients. Twenty-three (62.2%) programs provided services to patients with a noncardiac primary indication. Twenty-six (68.4%) programs systematically screened patients for depressive symptoms. Twenty-seven (71.1%) offered resources to patients postgraduation.
Most cardiac rehabilitation programs offered alternative models of care, such as home-based rehabilitation. Cardiac rehabilitation sites are well integrated within their community, enabling smooth postcardiac rehabilitation transitions for patients. Cardiac rehabilitation programs continue to offer proven comprehensive components, while simultaneously attempting to adapt to meet the needs of patients with other chronic diseases.
