The launch of a new alcohol industry body, the Alcohol Beverages Council, provides an active voice in the media debate on alcohol policy in New Zealand. The Council's messages are the usual ones offered by the alcohol industry: a focus on the drinker, not the product; protection of the rights of the moderate drinker; arguments for education; and erroneous statements about evidence-based policies. At the global level these messages, in the context of corporate social responsibility and lobbying activities, have been successful in subverting effective policy...

AIM: To measure changes in alcohol-related emergency department (ED) attendances after introduction of the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012. METHODS: Cross-sectional survey of Christchurch ED attendees in three-week sampling periods in 2013 and 2017. Participants had consumed alcohol within four hours, or their drinking had directly contributed to the attendance. The quantity of alcohol consumed and places of purchase and consumption for the index drinking episode were recorded...

AIMS: To understand colorectal cancer (CRC) symptoms experienced by Aotearoa/New Zealand patients and to describe patient-experienced pathways and factors which may be associated with delayed diagnosis. METHODS: Ninety-eight patients diagnosed with CRC, recruited via a national charity, completed a questionnaire. Questions included demographics, symptoms, help-seeking and diagnostic pathways followed. RESULTS: Of 98 participants, 72 (73%) were aged under 60 years; most were symptomatic (n=93, 95%) and first discussed symptoms with someone who was not a healthcare professional (HCP) (n=71, 79%)...

BACKGROUND: Māori are disproportionately impacted by injury in New Zealand, therefore reliable ethnicity data are essential for measuring and addressing inequities in trauma incidence, care and outcomes. AIM: To audit the quality of ethnicity data captured by the Waikato Hospital Trauma Registry and Waikato Hospital patient management system against self-identified ethnicity. METHOD: Self-identified ethnicity using the New Zealand Census ethnicity question was gathered from 100 consecutive trauma patients and compared with ethnicity recorded in their Trauma Registry record and in the hospital's patient management database...

AIM: To assess the incidence and patterns of injury resulting from force transferred from large livestock in the Midland Region of New Zealand, and to identify foci for prevention. METHOD: Data was sourced from the Midland Trauma System Registry. Patients admitted to Midland hospitals from 2012 to 2015 were evaluated. Data included patient demography, location, mechanism, and time of the injury, type of animals involved, injuries sustained, interventions, outcomes and hospital costs...

AIM: To investigate prescribing behaviours around tranexamic acid (TXA) use in the early management of severe trauma, and compare against standards considered to be best practice internationally, as established by the current body of research. METHODS: We undertook a retrospective analysis of all trauma patients requiring massive transfusion protocol (MTP) activation across a 20-month period. A combination of physical and electronic inpatient records and ambulance documentation were reviewed to determine dose and timing of TXA administration...

AIM: The incidence of melanoma in situ varies throughout the world. It is associated with excellent outcomes, however many of those untreated will go on to develop invasive melanoma with a worse prognosis. There is no previously published data on melanoma in situ (MIS) in New Zealand. Further information is needed to enable better understanding of the disease spectrum. METHODS: De-identified data were obtained from the New Zealand Cancer Registry (NZCR) by way of computerised search for MIS diagnosis...

AIMS: To evaluate whether information delivered to patients about the level of training of the person operating on them is understandable and meaningful. To establish whether post-operative patients can identify when a doctor, undergoing training in surgery, has performed their surgery. To identify terms that are clear to patients, which can be used to improve understanding. METHOD: A 15-question survey was developed to evaluate the expectations, understanding and knowledge post-operative patients had about their recent surgery...

AIM: This study investigates non-response bias in an inpatient experience survey with a low response rate by comparing sociodemographic characteristics and response behaviours of initial responders with responders to follow-up, and further explores the factors contributing to non-response. Prior research suggests non-response may be endogenously related to patient characteristics. METHOD: We re-contacted a convenience sample of non-responders to a nationally representative, cross-sectional inpatient survey conducted in New Zealand...

AIM: The aim of this study was to examine a potential ethnic disparity in the phenotype of polycythaemia vera (PV) between New Zealand European and Polynesian patients. METHOD: A retrospective review of medical records was conducted at Middlemore Hospital to identify adult patients with PV diagnosed between 1987 and 2007. Data extracted included diagnostic criteria, ethnicity, age, complications and survival. RESULTS: Eighty-eight adult patients with PV were identified during 1987-2007, 49 (55...
