Publisher: Brisbane, Qld. and Melbourne, Vic. University of Queensland, School of Population Health, Centre for the Burden of Disease and Cost-Effectiveness and Deakin University, Deakin Health Economics, Strategic Research Centre-Population Health 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: September 2010 NHMRC Grant No. 351558 This report was produced jointly by the Centre for the Burden of Disease and Cost-Effectiveness, School of Population Health, University of Queensland, Brisbane and Deakin Health Economics, Strategic Research Centre-Population Health, Deakin University, Melbourne. The work was funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council. Bibliography : p. 65-70Summary: This report has evaluated the cost-effectiveness of 150 preventive health interventions, addressing areas such as mental health, diabetes, tobacco use, alcohol use, nutrition, body weight, physical activity, blood pressure, blood cholesterol and bone mineral density. It challenges us to learn more from intervention experiences in tobacco control and sun safety, which have demonstrated enormous benefit in the past from well-targeted and sustained activity. Similar success is possible in areas such as alcohol use and obesity, which have received low levels of investment in past decades. Additional investment, however, should not be at the expense of continuing effort in the areas in which we are making inroads.Availability: (1)

Final report : dementia outcomes measurement suite project /

by Sansoni , Jan | University of Wollongong. Centre for Health Service evelopment | Marosszeky, Nick | Jeon, Yun-Hee | et al.

Publisher: Wollongong, N.S.W. University of Wollongong. Centre for Health Service Development. 2007Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography pp. 433-507Summary: In May 2006 the Department of Health and Ageing commissioned a research report from the University of Wollongong on dementia measurement instruments. The aim of the project was to develop a credible suite of standardised measurement tools, within the health outcomes framework, to allow for the examination of service delivery effectiveness; better screening and assessment of consumers; and the evaluation of an individual consumer's health-related quality of life. The DOMS report identifies 36 instruments deemed suitable to be used by researchers and clinicians in the routine assessment, diagnosis, screening and outcomes monitoring of dementia conditions and the evaluation of treatments. Analysis was limited to tools available for use in routine care and therefore excluded detailed neuropsychological instruments that would require specialist training or interpretation. Standardisation of tools and terminologies is intended to advance research through the enhanced comparability of studies. The Report raises implementation issues including the issue of any mandating of particular instruments and training programs for the use of recommended instruments in particular settings. These issues require extensive consultation and discussion by health professionals. The Minister for Ageing's Dementia Advisory Group has been briefed on the DOMS report. The Group supports further consultation on the research findings with health professionals concerned with dementia assessment.Availability: (1)
