69. Opioid Treatments for Chronic Pain

The purpose of this review is to update the 2014 AHRQ report 7 on opioids for chronic pain. This update includes new evidence for questions covered in the 2014 AHRQ report, including efficacy and harms, comparisons with nonopioid therapies, dosing strategies, dose-response relationships, risk mitigation strategies, discontinuation and tapering of opioid therapy, and population differences. This review is one of three concurrent AHRQ systematic reviews on treating chronic pain; the other reviews address (...) nonpharmacologic treatments 10 and nonopioid pharmacological treatments. 11 ES-2 Scope and Key Questions This Comparative Effectiveness Review focused on opioid treatments with short-term (1 to 1 year) RCTs of opioid therapy versus placebo. One new cohort study found no association between long-term opioid therapy versus no opioids and pain, function or other outcomes. 21 New observational studies were consistent with the 2014 AHRQ report in finding an association between use of prescription opioids and risk

70. Focused deterrence strategies effects on crime: A systematic review Full Text available with Trip Pro

criminologists seem unaware of the existing empirical evidence. For instance, in his 2013 summary of the crime prevention value of focused deterrence programs, former National Council on Crime and Delinquency president Barry Krisberg reported, “It certainly hasn't been effective so far, and there is no information suggesting it is effective” (as interviewed by KTVU, ). Recently, more cities have tested the focused deterrence approach to control gang violence, disorderly drug markets, and repeat offender (...) in conducting meta‐analyses in crime and justice is that investigators often do not prioritize outcomes examined. This is common in studies in the social sciences in which authors view the good practice as demanding that all relevant outcomes be reported. However, the lack of prioritization of outcomes in a study raises the question of how to derive an overall effect of treatment. For example, the reporting of one significant result may reflect a type of “creaming” in which the authors focus on one large

to develop QI that addresses the pro- cess, structure and outcomes of PR. METHODS: The development process was based on the modified RAND Appropriateness Method that included a systematic review of the literature to identify candidate QI and refinement of these QI by a Working Group before they were sent to a Delphi panel. Panel members rated the import- ance, scientific soundness, reliability, and feasibility of each candidate using an electronic survey. The results of the survey were distributed (...) to panelists who deliberated by teleconference prior their re-rating the candidate QI. RESULTS: The literature review identified 5490 titles and abstracts. A total of 1653 articles were retained after initial screening. After full text screening, 190 articles remained and were used to generate 90 candidate QI. The Delphi panel identified 56 QI: 19 structural, 29 process, 8 outcome. The Working Group distilled these to a shorter list of 14 core QI that defined the minimal requirements for PR. CONCLUSIONS

sexual exposure are included in their respective pre-donation questionnaires (1). In Italy, the national policy since 2001 is to exclude on basis of “risky behaviour” (11) and all donors are interviewed by a doctor (1). For example, a man who has sex with men could be considered “low risk” for HIV if he is in a long-term monogamous relationship and therefore, he is a “safer” candidate for blood donation. On the other hand, heterosexual men who had multiple sexual partners and unprotected sex during (...)
