Therefore, future studies should look at rates of improvement (or reductions in offending) rather than merely at “recidivism” as such. 5) Rehabilitation in other relevant areas, such as health, employment, family and social networks, is rarely considered, despite century‐old claims that short custodial sentences are damaging with respect to social integration in these other (...) sanction group and a non‐custodial sanction group; 2) The sanctions to be compared were imposed following a conviction for a criminal offense; 3) There was at least one outcome measure of recidivism (new arrests, reconvictions, re‐incarceration or self‐report data); 4) The study was completed after 1960 and 2002, and between 2003 and 2013 for the update.

million people in England were living with AF. Of these 425,000 were estimated to be undiagnosed and untreated. Prevalence was higher in men (2.9%) than in women (2.0%). A population-based cohort analysis (the Framingham heart study) investigated the lifetime risk for development of AF in 3,999 men and 4,726 women aged 40 years and older. The participants were followed up from 1968 to 1999, for a total of 176,166 person-years: The lifetime risk of developing AF was similar for both men and women (...) with 82,476 participants). AF is also associated with reduced quality of life: AF can result in reduced exercise tolerance and impaired cognitive function. A systematic review of 49 studies found that people with AF have significantly poorer quality of life than healthy controls, the general population, and people with coronary heart disease. The risks from AF are thought to be similar to those from or AF. Anticoagulation treatment reduces the risk of stroke by about two-thirds. [ ; ; ; ; ; ; ] Diagnosis

COPD is linked to social deprivation; however, it is unclear whether this pattern reflects exposure to cigarette smoke or to air pollutants, poor nutrition, crowding, or other factors related to low socioeconomic status [ ]. COPD is more common in men. However, in recent years, the prevalence has reached a plateau in men but has increased (...) older than 65 years of age. Exacerbations of COPD requiring hospital admission are associated with an inpatient mortality rate of 3–4%, which increases to 11–24% for people who require treatment in an intensive care unit [ ]. The true mortality rate due to COPD is difficult to quantify, as many people with COPD die with the disease rather than because of it. Nevertheless, mortality from COPD increases with age, severity of disease, and socioeconomic deprivation. [ ; ] Complications What

Cranial trauma may lead to a temporary or permanent impairment of cognitive, physical, or psychosocial functions. They represent one of the most critical public health problems around the world with an estimated annual incidence rate in Europe of 262 per 100 000 population. 1 Populations more at risk of cranial trauma include children below 4 years of age, young adults (aged below 25 (...) ) and the elderly (aged over 75). 1 There is a distinction between mild (or light), moderate and severe cranial trauma. Such distinction is most often based on the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS): a 3 to 15-point scale used to assess patients’ level of consciousness and neurologic functioning after a head injury (see Table 1). Mild cranial trauma (mCT) often defined as GCS 13-15 is by far, the most frequent, accounting for as many as 71% to 98% of cases and is the subject of interest of this review. 5 Biomarkers
