21. Evidence-Based Clinical Guidelines for Multidisciplinary Spine Care: Diagnosis and Treatment of Low Back Pain

levels of evidence inform the grades of recommendation and the standard nomenclature used within the recom- mendations see Appendix C. Guideline recommendations are written utilizing a standard language that indicates the strength of the recommendation. “A” recommendations indicate a test or intervention is “recommended”; “B” recom- mendations “suggest” a test or intervention and “C” recommendations indicate a test or intervention “may be considered” or “is an option.” “I” or “Insufficient Evidence (...) ” statements clearly indicate that “there is insufficient evidence to make a recommendation for or against” a test or intervention. Work group con- sensus statements clearly state that “in the absence of reliable evidence, it is the work group’s opinion that” a test or intervention may be appropriate. Recommendations were developed based on a specific definition, inclusion/exclusion criteria, and the resulting literature which excluded conditions such as presence of a neurological deficit or leg pain

22. 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 (...) problems. The National Network for Safe Communities, an applied research project of the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, provides support to some 42 U.S. cities who are implementing some version of a focused deterrence strategy. 1 For a complete list of cities supported by the National Network for Safe Communities, go to (last accessed May 24, 2019). A few other countries have started to test the approach. For instance, a focused deterrence program has been implemented targeting youth violence

effective mitigation strategies, we conclude that the large‐scale implementation of PES is a high‐risk strategy. Our primary conclusion is therefore that there is an urgent need to integrate rigorous impact evaluation with the roll‐out of any new PES programme. This echoes repeated calls for rigorous evidence on the effects of PES over the least the last decade (Ferraro, ; Ferraro & Pattanayak, ; Samii, Lisiecki, Kulkarni, Paler, & Chavis, ). 2.5 Implications for practice and policy With the above (...) to be conducted in conjunction with the roll out of new programmes. Such studies should be conducted across multiple contexts to identify generalisable and context specific findings. They should assess effects on a common set of environmental and socioeconomic outcomes, including deforestation, GHG emissions, household income and food security. To identify and address potential unintended negative socioeconomic effects studies should draw on existing literature to anticipate and collect data on such outcomes

UI benefits. These are known as SA benefits. Unlike UI benefits, SA benefits are generally means‐tested without any necessary connection to past employment; they pay a lower level of benefit and are indefinite. We know of only one example of an SA benefit with a time limit: the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) which is available in the US. The federal government requires states to impose between 2‐ or 5‐year limits on TANF (Gustafson & Levine, 1997). In a minority of OECD countries (...) , UA benefits are paid after exhaustion of UI benefits. Like SA benefits, they are generally means‐tested, pay a lower level of benefits and, excepting Hungary, Portugal and Sweden, are indefinite. Unemployment benefits with an indefinite time limit or non‐financial benefits are excluded from this review. 1.3 HOW THE INTERVENTION MIGHT WORK Search theory offers an explanation for how reducing unemployment benefits duration might increase job finding rates. According to search theory, one can derive

Specification of the model, taking into account: whether the type of model has been used before; whether the model is dynamic or static; whether the assumptions underlying the model are reported and plausible; whether there are attempts to calibrate or otherwise test the validity of the model; whether the sensitivity of the model to changes in some variables is apparent, for instance through changing model variables (...) of the outcome variable are needed. Where this was not reported, we applied information available about the sample size to other information reported in the paper, such as the value of the t‐test for the difference in means across intervention and comparison groups (see ). We also used the risk/response ratio to measure changes in poverty aggregates (e.g. headcount, poverty gap, squared‐poverty gap). Where data were not reported for confidence intervals in simulation studies (e.g. due to lack of sensitivity

analysed the data using (standardized) mean difference ((S)MD) with the corresponding 95% CI. We used SMD when length of time was measured different between pooled studies (e.g. in days versus months, etc.). We conducted meta‐analyses using RevMan 5,using a random‐effects model and inverse‐variance approach(38). This method allowed us to weight each study according to the degree of variation in the confidence in the effect estimate. In cases where the means, number of participants and test statistics (...) for t‐test were reported, but not the standard deviations, and there was the opportunity to include results in a meta‐analysis, we calculated standard deviations, assuming same standard deviation for each of the two groups (intervention and control). Heterogeneity We assessed statistical heterogeneity using I 2 . Where I 2 was less than 25% we considered the results to have low heterogeneity. Where I 2 was greater than 50% we considered the results to have high heterogeneity. Where

to have a clear role in predicting exclusion. For other variables of interest such as sex, age or socio‐economic status most of the evidence is limited to bivariate associations. Regarding the outcomes, while there is a stark link between misbehaviour (e.g., school drop‐out and delinquency) and school exclusion, there is no clear causal relationship. Notwithstanding decades of research on school exclusion and its impact on later behaviour, we are still at an initial stage for testing causal (...) , tested data from 365 schools and a total number of 43,320 students. They concluded that when comparing those students eligible for free or reduced‐cost lunches with their non‐eligible peers, the first were more likely to get out‐of‐school exclusions (OR= 1.27; p<.05). However, contrary to expectations, the eligibility for free or reduced meals resulted in a negative predictor of permanent exclusion (OR= 0.03; p<.05).

for measuring it. Programme frameworks are management tools used to design, monitor and evaluate interventions (11). Two commonly used examples are the logical framework (or log frame) and the results framework (11) (12). The logical framework helps to translate strategic plans into resources (inputs), activities, outputs, and outcomes— what the program is trying to achieve and what it does to get results (13). The results framework comprises four major indicator domains: system inputs and processes (...) of a programme in a similar manner to ToC but are usually presented in a linear form - they can be rigid and do not make explicit the causal pathways through which change happens in the way that ToC does (16). Log frames were initially developed to summarise discussions with stakeholders, but funder-driven formats have largely reduced log frames to a results-based management tool (16). Theory of Change (ToC) is a participatory theory driven approach to programme design and evaluation whose underlying

40. Review of information management practices in the HSE Computerised Infectious Disease Reporting (CIDR) system

to ensure a high-quality safe service. Safe, reliable healthcare depends on access to, and the use of, information that is accurate, valid, reliable, timely, relevant, legible and complete. For example, when giving a patient a drug, a nurse needs to be sure that they are administering the appropriate dose of the correct drug to the right patient and that the patient is not allergic to it. Similarly, lack of up- to-date information can lead to the unnecessary duplication of tests — if critical diagnostic (...) results are missing or overlooked, tests have to be repeated unnecessarily and, at best, appropriate treatment is delayed or at worst not given. In addition, health information has an important role to play in healthcare planning decisions — where to locate a new service, whether or not to introduce a new national screening programme and decisions on best value for money in health and social care provision.
