Case Management: A traditional term for all the activities which a physician or other health care professional normally performs to insure the coordination of the medical services required by a patient. It also, when used in connection with managed care, covers all the activities of evaluating the patient, planning treatment, referral, and follow-up so that care is continuous and comprehensive and payment for the care is obtained. (From Slee & Slee, Health Care Terms, 2nd ed)Disease Management: A broad approach to appropriate coordination of the entire disease treatment process that often involves shifting away from more expensive inpatient and acute care to areas such as preventive medicine, patient counseling and education, and outpatient care.

Thrombophilia as a multigenic disease. (1/677)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Venous thrombosis is a common disease annually affecting 1 in 1000 individuals. The multifactorial nature of the disease is illustrated by the frequent identification of one or more predisposing genetic and/or environmental risk factors in thrombosis patients. Most of the genetic defects known today affect the function of the natural anticoagulant pathways and in particular the protein C system. This presentation focuses on the importance of the genetic factors in the pathogenesis of inherited thrombophilia with particular emphasis on those defects which affect the protein C system. INFORMATION SOURCES: Published results in articles covered by the Medline database have been integrated with our original studies in the field of thrombophilia. STATE OF THE ART AND PERSPECTIVES: The risk of venous thrombosis is increased when the hemostatic balance between pro- and anti-coagulant forces is shifted in favor of coagulation. When this is caused by an inherited defect, the resulting hypercoagulable state is a lifelong risk factor for thrombosis. Resistance to activated protein C (APC resistance) is the most common inherited hypercoagulable state found to be associated with venous thrombosis. It is caused by a single point mutation in the factor V (FV) gene, which predicts the substitution of Arg506 with a Gln. Arg506 is one of three APC-cleavage sites and the mutation results in the loss of this APC-cleavage site. The mutation is only found in Caucasians but the prevalence of the mutant FV allele (FV:Q506) varies between countries. It is found to be highly prevalent (up to 15%) in Scandinavian populations, in areas with high incidence of thrombosis. FV:Q506 is associated with a 5-10-fold increased risk of thrombosis and is found in 20-60% of Caucasian patients with thrombosis. The second most common inherited risk factor for thrombosis is a point mutation (G20210A) in the 3' untranslated region of the prothrombin gene. This mutation is present in approximately 2% of healthy individuals and in 6-7% of thrombosis patients, suggesting it to be a mild risk factor of thrombosis. Other less common genetic risk factors for thrombosis are the deficiencies of natural anticoagulant proteins such as antithrombin, protein C or protein S. Such defects are present in less than 1% of healthy individuals and together they account for 5-10% of genetic defects found in patients with venous thrombosis. Owing to the high prevalence of inherited APC resistance (FV:Q506) and of the G20210A mutation in the prothrombin gene, combinations of genetic defects are relatively common in the general population. As each genetic defect is an independent risk factor for thrombosis, individuals with multiple defects have a highly increased risk of thrombosis. As a consequence, multiple defects are often found in patients with thrombosis.  (+info)

Feasibility of monitoring patient based health outcomes in a routine hospital setting. (2/677)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the feasibility of monitoring health outcomes in a routine hospital setting and the value of feedback of outcomes data to clinicians by using the SF 36 health survey questionnaire. DESIGN: Administration of the questionnaire at baseline and three months, with analysis and interpretation of health status data after adjustments for sociodemographic variables and in conjunction with clinical data. Exploration of usefulness of outcomes data to clinicians through feedback discussion sessions and by an evaluation questionnaire. SETTING: One gastroenterology outpatient department in Aberdeen Royal Hospitals Trust, Scotland. PATIENTS: All (573) patients attending the department during one month (April 1993). MAIN MEASURES: Ability to obtain patient based outcomes data and requisite clinical information and feed it back to the clinicians in a useful and accessible form. RESULTS: Questionnaires were completed by 542 (95%) patients at baseline and 450 (87%) patients at follow up. Baseline health status data and health outcomes data for the eight different aspects of health were analysed for individual patients, key groups of patients, and the total recruited patient population. Significant differences were shown between patients and the general population and between different groups of patients, and in health status over time. After adjustment for differences in sociodemography and main diagnosis patients with particularly poor scores were identified and discussed. Clinicians judged that this type of assessment could be useful for individual patients if the results were available at the time of consultation or for a well defined group of patients if used as part of a clinical trial. CONCLUSIONS: Monitoring routine outcomes is feasible and instruments to achieve this, such as the SF 36 questionnaire, have potential value in an outpatient setting. IMPLICATIONS: If data on outcomes are to provide a basis for clinical and managerial decision making, information systems will be required to collect, analyse, interpret, and feed it back regularly and in good time.  (+info)

A cost comparison of approaches to sexually transmitted disease treatment in Malawi. (3/677)

Since syndromic management of STDs requires treatment with at least two antibiotics per patient, one of the concerns raised by adoption of the syndromic approach is the cost of drugs, especially for developing countries with limited drug budgets. The objective of the current study is to compare the cost-effectiveness of syndromic management to current national practice for the management of STDs in Malawi. The actual cost of observed antibiotic treatment for 144 patients receiving same day treatment for two STD syndromes in Malawi was determined using prices from the Malawi government supply catalogue. This was then compared to the calculated cost of treatment had the same patients been managed syndromically according to national guidelines. The cost of drug treatment under current practice was similar to the cost of syndromic treatment. However, at least one-third of observed patients did not receive effective treatment for either likely cause of their STD syndrome and wastage accounted for 54% of total observed drug cost. Overall, syndromic management of STDs in Malawi would result in more effective treatment of STDs at no additional cost. Since the indirect costs of low treatment efficacy were not taken into account in this analysis, a net saving is likely to be realized with the adoption of syndromic management.  (+info)

Identification and case management in an HMO of patients at risk of preterm labor. (4/677)

We carried out a study of pregnant patients in a health maintenance organization to identify and provide case management of women at risk of preterm labor and to determine important risk factors for preterm labor in a managed care population. Data were collected on 794 women who completed an initial prenatal care visit at HealthAmerica of Pittsburgh between July 15, 1994, and March 31, 1995, and delivered at a local Pittsburgh hospital. The patients were assessed during an initial call to schedule their first prenatal visit and also at the 8- to 15-week and 24- to 28-week prenatal visits. Patients scoring 10 or higher on the risk assessment form were referred to a nurse case manager who provided education and support. Results of a logistic regression analysis suggest that the risk assessment tool was effective in identifying women at risk for preterm labor. "Physical/stressful work", as assessed by the patient, history of a prior preterm birth, and multiple gestation were all statistically significant predictors of preterm birth. Further research is needed to confirm the finding that physical or stressful work is a significant predictor of preterm births and to determine which aspects of the work may increase the patient's risk. This study was based on 8 months of data; however, additional program implementation is needed to evaluate fully the potential long-term benefits of the program.  (+info)

Identification and assessment of high-risk seniors. HMO Workgroup on Care Management. (5/677)

CONTEXT: Many older adults with chronic illnesses and multidimensional needs are at high risk of adverse health outcomes, poor quality of life, and heavy use of health-related services. Modern proactive care of older populations includes identification of such high-risk individuals, assessment of their health-related needs, and interventions designed both to meet those needs and to prevent undesirable outcomes. OBJECTIVE: This paper outlines an approach to the tasks of identifying and assessing high-risk seniors. Intervention identification of high-risk seniors (also called case finding) is accomplished through a combination of periodic screening, recognition of high-risk seniors by clinicians, and analysis of administrative databases. Once identified, potentially high-risk individuals undergo on initial assessment in eight domains: cognition, medical conditions, medications, access to care, functional status, social situation, nutrition, and emotional status. The initial assessment is accomplished in a 30- to 45-minute interview conducted by a skilled professional--usually one with a background in nursing. The data are used to link some high-risk persons with appropriate services and to identify others who require more detailed assessments. Detailed assessment is often performed by interdisciplinary teams of various compositions and methods of operation, depending on local circumstances. CONCLUSION: The rapid growth in Medicare managed care is presenting many opportunities for developing more effective strategies for the proactive care for older populations. Identification and assessment of high-risk individuals are important initial steps in this process, paving the way for testing of interventions designed to reduce adverse health consequences and to improve the quality of life.  (+info)

Syndromic management of sexually transmitted diseases: is it rational or scientific? (6/677)

Control of sexually transmitted diseases improves the reproductive and sexual health of afflicted individuals and lowers the community burden of HIV. Preventing STDs or their complications requires health education, condom promotion and effective case management. Clinical diagnosis is frequently incorrect while laboratory-confirmed aetiological diagnosis is expensive. In resource-poor countries which lack trained personnel and laboratory facilities, syndromic management remains a rational approach to STD care. Although the approach is simplistic in design, its successful implementation requires regular monitoring and evaluation of protocols as well as supervision and training of clinicians.  (+info)

Renal assessment practices and the effect of nurse case management of health maintenance organization patients with diabetes. (7/677)

OBJECTIVE: To examine baseline renal screening practices and the effect of nurse case management of patients with diabetes in a group model health maintenance organization (HMO). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: We performed both 1-year retrospective and 1-year prospective studies of renal assessment practices and ACE inhibitor usage in a cohort of 133 diabetic patients enrolled in a randomized controlled trial of a diabetes nurse case management program in a group model HMO. In accordance with American Diabetes Association recommendations, urine dipstick and quantitative protein and microalbuminuria testing rates were calculated. RESULTS: At baseline, 77% of patients were screened for proteinuria with dipsticks or had quantitative urine testing. Of patients with negative dipstick findings, 30% had appropriate quantitative protein or microalbumin follow-up at baseline. Baseline ACE inhibitor usage was associated with decreased follow-up testing (relative risk = 0.47). Nurse case management was associated with increased quantitative protein or or microalbumin testing and increased follow-up testing (relative risk = 1.65 and 1.60, respectively). CONCLUSIONS: We found a higher degree of adherence to recommendations for renal testing than has been reported previously. Nurse case management intervention further increased renal screening rates. The inverse association between ACE inhibitor usage and microalbumin testing highlights a potentially ambiguous area of current clinical pathways.  (+info)

How ready are health plans for Medicare? (8/677)

CONTEXT: The Medicare program is encouraging its beneficiaries to enroll in capitated health plans. OBJECTIVE: To determine how prepared these plans are to handle chronically ill and frail elderly persons. DESIGN: Telephone survey of 28 health plans that together serve about one fourth of all enrollees of the Medicare Risk program. MEASURES: The degree of readiness (high, intermediate, or low) of health plans in seven domains that experts believe are important to the management of an elderly population. RESULTS: None of the 28 health plans had high readiness scores for all seven domains. The two domains for which the plans were most prepared were risk assessment and member self-care. The plans were least prepared for the domains of cooperative team care and geriatric consultations. CONCLUSIONS: Many plans do not offer the programs that experts believe are important for Medicare enrollees. They may hesitate to adopt strategies that lack data on effectiveness.  (+info)

Suicide risk is high in the first week, month and year following discharge from psychiatric inpatient settings. The decrease in care following discharge has been considered as contributing to the excessive suicide rate in this population. The aim of this research was to evaluate the impact of an intensive case management follow-up of these high-risk people for one year. Sixty males with a history of suicide attempts and psychiatric illness were recruited at discharge from a psychiatric inpatient setting at the Gold Coast Hospital, Queensland. Participants were randomly assigned to one of two conditions: Intensive Case Management (ICM) or Treatment As Usual (TAU). ICM featured weekly face-to-face contact with a community case manager and outreach telephone calls from experienced telephone counsellors. TAU participants were discharged under existing hospital practices. All participants completed assessment interviews at baseline, six and twelve months post-discharge. At the end of the twelve-month ...
Different methods for measuring violence can produce very different prevalences. The recent use of multiple combined measures, as in this study, has highlighted the limitations of most previous studies, which relied on a single source. One study that specifically compared the yield of violence when different sources were used revealed a dramatically different picture of violence by patients depending on the source of information used.15 Our results support the observation that self report methods consistently produce a higher frequency of violence than use of other records.16 In a small proportion of cases the WHO life chart was completed from sources other than the patient, so the 94% response rate is a slight overestimate.. The optimal prevalence estimate would have been detected with 100% follow up on all data sources. Although we did not achieve this, we did obtain information on all participants from at least one source. One possible source of bias in this study is that intensive case ...

Background: Malaria, pneumonia and diarrhea are the leading causes of death in children under five years of age in Uganda. In a bid to improve access to prompt and effective treatment of these diseases, Malaria Consortium in partnership with United Nations International Childrens Emergency Fund (UNICEF) introduced Integrated Community Case Management (ICCM) in eight central districts of Uganda. There is currently limited information about client satisfaction with this program. The main objective of the study was to assess client satisfaction with the ICCM program in Wakiso district. Methods: A cross-sectional study using quantitative methods and a modified SERVQUAL tool was conducted and 454 care givers of children under five years of age were interviewed. Differences in mean scores between expected and perceived services were analyzed using paired t-tests and chi-square tests. A negative score implied that clients were not satisfied with the care they received. Logistic regression models were also

Many students experience difficult times during college, due to academic and/or personal reasons. Common stressors include mental health, personal or family concerns, illness or injury. These life events can interfere with a students ability to attain their goals. Each situation is so unique, it can be challenging to determine what next steps might be helpful. In the height of a crisis situation, a student or support person may find it difficult to sort through the resources and services that are available at Western Michigan University to assist. Talking with the case manager is a good place to start.. Students are referred to case management services by faculty, staff or other students when they have a concern regarding a students welfare. Students can also be self-referred to gain assistance. The goal is to avert more serious difficulties, focus on the safety of both the student and the WMU community, and help the student attain academic and personal success.. The process for referring ...

Introduction: Frequent emergency department (ED) users are often vulnerable patients with many risk factors affecting their quality of life (QoL). The aim of this study was to examine to what extent a case management intervention improved frequent ED users QoL. Methods: Data were part of a randomized, controlled trial designed to improve frequent ED users QoL at the Lausanne University Hospital. A total of 194 frequent ED users (≥ 5 attendances during the previous 12 months; ≥ 18 years of age) were randomly assigned to the control or the intervention group. Participants in the intervention group received a case management intervention (i.e. counseling and assistance concerning social determinants of health, substance-use disorders, and access to the health-care system). QoL was evaluated using the WHOQOL-BREF at baseline and twelve months later. Four dimensions of QoL were retained: physical health, psychological health, social relationship, and environment, with scores ranging from 0 (low ...
Background: Frequent users of the emergency department (ED) can result in overcrowding, compromised quality of care, increased cost, and reduced efficiency. It is hypothesized that case management interventions can decrease the amount of ED visits, therefore improving quality of care, improving patient outcome, and lowering costs. Objectives: The purpose of this integrative literature review was to identify if case management interventions are an effective way to decrease the number of visits in frequent users of the ED. Method: An integrative literature review was conducted by searching ProQuest, CINAHL, and PubMed databases. Search terms included

The Children at Risk (CAR) Program was a comprehensive, neighborhood-based strategy for preventing drug use, delinquency, and other problem behaviors among high-risk youth living in severely distressed neighborhoods. The goal of this research project was to evaluate the long-term impact of the CAR program using experimental and quasi-experimental group comparisons. Experimental comparisons of the treatment and control groups selected within target neighborhoods examined the impact of CAR services on individual youths and their families. These services included intensive case management, family services, mentoring, and incentives. Quasi-experimental comparisons were needed in each city because control group youths in the CAR sites were exposed to the effects of neighborhood interventions, such as enhanced community policing and enforcement activities and some expanded court services, and may have taken part in some of the recreational activities after school. CAR programs in five cities -- ...

Perhaps a wiser health policy goal would be to focus on the delivery of high-quality, convenient, accessible care to all patients in all clinical settings, ambulatory, emergency, and inpatient. Intensive case management of frequent ED users and expanded off-hours access to facilities delivering primary care, especially mental health and substance use treatment, may decrease the frequency of ED recidivism, but additional work is needed to test the efficacy of these interventions. In health cares current political climate, which emphasizes cost containment and personal responsibility, it is difficult to see this happening. But for now, let us put to rest future conversations about "inappropriate" ED use ...
Background: Substance use disorder (SUD) is an important health problem that requires a complex range of care because of the chronic nature of the disorder and the multiple psychosocial problems involved. Current outpatient programs often have difficulties in delivering and coordinating ongoing care and access to different health care providers. Various case management (CM) models have been developed, first for patients in other psychiatric domains and then for patients with SUD, in order to improve treatment outcomes.Aims: This paper aims to assess the effectiveness of CM for patients with SUD. Methods: We performed a systematic review of CM interventions for patients with SUD by analyzing randomized controlled studies published on the subject between 1996 and 2016 found on the electronic database PubMed.Results and Conclusions: Fourteen studies were included in the analysis. Differences between studies in outcome measures, populations included, and intervention characteristics made it difficult to

We devised a randomised controlled trial to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of an intervention based on case management care for frequent emergency department users. The aim of the intervention is to reduce such patients emergency department use, to improve their quality of life, and to reduce costs consequent on frequent use. The intervention consists of a combination of comprehensive case management care and standard emergency care. It uses a clinical case management model that is patient-identified, patient-directed, and developed to provide high intensity services. It provides a continuum of hospital- and community-based patient services, which include clinical assessment, outreach referral, and coordination and communication with other service providers. We aim to recruit, during the first year of the study, 250 patients who visit the emergency department of the University Hospital of Lausanne, Switzerland. Eligible patients will have visited the emergency department 5 or more times
Abstract. Health planners commonly use geographic proximity to define access to health services. However, effective access to case management requires reliable access to a trained, supplied provider. We defined effective access as the proportion of the study population with geographic access, corrected for other barriers, staffing patterns, and medicine availability. We measured effective access through a cross-sectional survey of 32 health facilities in Malawi, Mali, and Zambia and modeled the potential contribution of community case management (CCM). The population living within Ministry of Health (MOH)-defined geographic access was 43% overall (range = 18-52%), but effective access was only 14% overall (range = 9-17%). Implementing CCM as per MOH plans increased geographic access to 63-90% and effective access to 30-57%. Access to case management is much worse than typically estimated by distance. The CCM increases access dramatically, again if providers are available and supplied, and should be
For these reasons, the Principal Recipient (PR) of the Global Fund (GF) grant in Malaysia, the Malaysian AIDS Council (MAC) submitted a Reprogramming Request (RR) to change the focus of GF supported activities from a largely HIV prevention focus among key populations (KPs) to a scaled-up programme to recruit key populations for testing and treatment, and assist adherence by KPs to antiretroviral treatment (ART) and for opioid dependent people who inject drugs (PWID) to methadone maintenance therapy (MMT). In line with this goal, the Case Management Program has been developed and being implemented.. OBJECTIVES OF THE ASSESSMENT. The overall objective is to evaluate the effectiveness and impact of the Global Fund investment in the Case Management (CM) Program in Malaysia, and the extent to which - and how - the Case Management can form part of the sustained country HIV response past Global Fund financing. The National consultant will support the international consultant to assess three main ...
Unsurprisingly, we found that case managers allocated the largest proportion of time to care coordination. In practice a large part of case managers daily activities is to frequently communicate and negotiate with care professionals, clients and families, and significant others, so as to coordinate right services at the right time for clients [16].. Contrary to the literature [10, 14, 15], we found that case managers allocated a higher proportion of time to monitoring and review (16.5 %) than needs assessment (12.5 %). In addition, the majority of case managers (over 70 %) assigned high frequency ratings to all five monitoring and review activities but not all needs assessment activities. Further research is needed to determine reasons for different findings identified by our study.. We found that case managers allocated the lowest proportion of time to outcome evaluation, and assigned lower frequency ratings to all four outcome evaluation activities compared with most other case management ...

The AXEX intervention was found to increase appropriate treatment of symptoms of pneumonia, malaria and diarrhoea substantially. It is an example of a multicomponent intervention towards creating a functioning health market, which provides equitable access to good quality, efficacious medicines while maintaining transparency and accountability. Care-seeker expectations of quality of fever care at drug shops were reconfigured, from trial and error to care that was based on definitive knowledge based on rapid tests. The medicines provided in the AXEX intervention had attributes that improved regulator- drug seller interaction, and care-seeking behaviour. The presence of quality-assured single-dose packaged, colour-coded medicines that were easy to handle at drug shops and promoted patient adherence50 to prescribed doses was appreciated by regulators and care-seekers, although for different reasons. On the regulators side, these products met medicine packaging standards and regulations51 and ...

The website of the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) is a one good source of information about HEDIS measures.. Disease Management and Wellness Programs also make extensive use of clinical analytics. Analysis of claims data can help insurers and at-risk providers identify the sub-populations of patients with chronic diseases who would benefit from case management services intended to help them proactively manage their health and avoid expensive acute episodes. Clinical analytics can trigger alerts to either the case manager or the patient to remind them of necessary actions, such as refilling a prescription, making an appointment with a doctor or sticking to an exercise routine.. Where home monitoring is in place, analytics can trigger actions based on patterns in blood pressure levels or other clinical measurements. Clinical analytics also plays an important role in evaluating the overall effectiveness of programs in reducing costs and improving health.. Population risk adjustment ...

If youre a nurse, then you know that nursing continuing education courses help you stay current in the overall medical field as well as allowing you to study your own specialty in depth. In most states, nursing CEUs are a necessity for maintaining your nursing license, or for obtaining an advanced license in your field of choice. Other states leave it up to your own sense of ethical responsibility to stay current with the latest medical breakthroughs, health care technology and constantly changing protocols and standards of care.Whether you must take nursing continuing education courses because your state makes it mandatory or whether youre pursuing an interest in forensic nursing, legal nurse consulting, nursing management, nurse case management or any other nursing specialty, one of the most difficult issues youll face is finding appropriate nursing continuing education courses and evaluating the information that they offer.

The MICAA Treatment Program: Overview In the MICAA treatment model first developed by Sciacca in 1984 (Sciacca, 1987b), programming is based on the nonjudgmental acceptance of all symptoms and experiences related to both mental illness and substance abuse. Patients are engaged in supportive peer groups that encourage candid discussion of all illness-related experiences to foster group identification and cohesion.. MICAA treatment groups are implemented as a component of existing mental health treatment, or as a part of an integrated program exclusively for MICAA. MICAA groups have been developed in a wide range of treatment programs, including short and long-term inpatient hospitals, admission units, community residences, shelters, day treatment programs, continuing care programs, case management services, and outpatient clinics (Sciacca, 1987a). The format is as follows. Selected patients receive mental health treatment as usual, and attend MICAA groups, once or twice per week in lieu of other ...

Safety and other needs of victims and other vulnerable parties. And of course, case management plans must always take into account the needs, interests, and safety of victims. This is particularly critical and can be very challenging with intrafamilial or sibling-on-sibling cases, or in other circumstances when the victim and the juvenile offender are in the same home. In those instances, the case management plan must address whether the youthful offender can remain in the home or if an out-of-home placement is warranted. And if the youth is removed from the home, the case management plan will need to include family reunification considerations. In still other circumstances, the juvenile may have committed an offense against someone who attended the same school. This, too, is a critical issue to address in the case management plan. Depending upon a number of factors-not the least of which are the concerns and interests of the victim and the victims family-the case management or supervision plan ...

The Care Programme Approach (CPA) was introduced in 1991 to provide a framework for the delivery of mental health care to patients with severe mental illness, using a case management model. At the core of the CPA is an identified keyworker, who coordinates formulation and implementation of an individualised care plan, regular reviews and documentation of discontinuation or transfer of care. Following a review of the CPA by the National Health Service Executive in 1999 (Department of Health, 1999), two levels of care were introduced; standard and enhanced. Enhanced CPA would apply to those with severe and enduring mental health problems who fulfil the criteria for Section 117, have associated complex needs, present a significant risk and require the coordinated care of two or more agencies to prevent and manage social disability and relapse.. The CPA provides a useful, but not incontrovertible, method of coordinating the care of patients with long-term and complex problems and formalises good ...

Yes, it has been awhile. We continue to use Therap daily. We are gearing up for tracking training in Therap, and almost have it ready to go. As an oversight agency - a Community Centered Board providing case management and contracting services for individuals through a number of agencies, some of whom are using Therap and some who are not - we were exploring the possibility of having everyone enter GERs into Therap, regardless of whether or not they use Therap. It would certainly help when looking at trends, saving a great deal of time over our current method of trend reporting. I have gone so far as creating a GER entry super role, and played with it, but there are some significant barriers..

The current World Health Organization recommendations for response during measles epidemics focus on case management rather than outbreak response vaccination (ORV) campaigns, which may occur too late to impact morbidity and mortality and have a high cost per case prevented. Here, we explore the potential impact of an ORV campaign conducted during the 2003-2004 measles epidemic in Niamey, Niger. We measured the impact of this intervention and also the potential impact of alternative strategies. Using a unique geographical, epidemiologic and demographic dataset collected during the epidemic, we developed an individual-based simulation model. We estimate that a median of 7.6% [4.9-8.9] of cases were potentially averted as a result of the outbreak response, which vaccinated approximately 57% (84 563 of an estimated 148 600) of children in the target age range (6-59 months), 23 weeks after the epidemic started. We found that intervening early (up to 60 days after the start of the epidemic) and ...

Background In Uganda one of the strategic actions to accelerate prevention of sexual transmission of HIV infections is to utilize religious institutions for delivery of HIV prevention messages. There is limited empirical data on the association between religiosity and HIV infections, for evidence-based planning of faith-based HIV prevention interventions. Objectives To examine how Ugandan communities understand the concept of religiosity and its role in HIV prevention; to adapt and validate the brief multidimensional measure of religiosity/spirituality; to assess the association between religiosity and HIV-risk behaviours; and to assess the association between religiosity and HIV prevalence rates. Methods The main study was an unmatched case-control study. The cases were HIV positive youth 15-24 years and the controls were HIV negative youth from the same age-group. Results Religiosity was defined by communities as good behaviours in accordance with Gods guidelines. It was considered to be of ...
