81. Impact of financial inclusion in low? and middle?income countries: A systematic review of reviews Full Text available with Trip Pro

a brief examination of the impact evidence for graduation and livelihoods programmes. In terms of evidence gaps, it is noteworthy that none of the meta‐studies we reviewed (high‐, medium‐ or low‐confidence) managed to assess debt levels or indebtedness patterns in depth as an outcome of financial inclusion. While we cannot comment on the reasons for the lack of attention paid to the issue, except that we are aware of it also being a blind spot of the underlying primary studies, we find (...) of consumption is difficult to ascertain, because changes in consumption levels are might stem from positive causes (such as having more available income) or negative causes (such as higher costs or spending on credit). 3.3.2 Social Under the heading of “social outcomes” we collect the gamut of other beneficial outcomes that are not strictly behavioural, economic or gender‐related. We break these down further into three broad categories: health (physical health, nutrition, mental and psychological health

Lewinnek and Warfield performed a small, retrospective study in 21 individuals with refractory LBP, reporting their results with IA LA and steroid injections (1.5 mL) into the areas of maximal tenderness and pathology identified on X-rays. Patients were selected based on the presence of paraspinal tenderness and negative correlates for other etiologies, such as nerve root tension signs. They found (...) no association between physical signs and symptoms for the most part did not evaluate this metric. Studies have also shown that maneuvers associated with radicular signs (eg, pain worsened by coughing, pain radiating below the knee) may be predictive of negative diagnostic facet blocks. Similar to other interventions for chronic pain, greater disease burden and psychiatric comorbidities may be associated with definitive treatment failure. When selecting targets for blocks, levels should be determined based

Records of Scotland on inequalities in leading causes of disease, published in 2018, found that drug use disorders are 17 times more prevalent in poorer than richer areas and are the leading cause of premature death in young adults 3 .
