OBJECTIVES: To determine the incidence, multiplicity, geographical variability and service trends of keratinocyte cancers (KC) in South Australia (SA). METHODS: Medicare Australia data with a unique identifier were used to assess the number of people treated over years 2010-2014. A maximum of one KC service claim per year was used to determine incidence. Age-standardised rates were estimated as were KC service activity trends. RESULTS: There were 497,581 services to 204,183 SA residents for KC, solar keratoses, locally aggressive skin tumours or suspicious skin lesions...

OBJECTIVE: To estimate the effects of age, period and birth cohort on observed trends, and to provide short- to medium-term projections of population BMI in New Zealand. METHODS: Data were obtained from New Zealand national health surveys covering the period 1997 to 2015 (n=76,294 individuals). A Hierarchical Age-Period-Cohort (HAPC) model and an Age-Period model with interaction terms were specified for population groups defined by ethnicity and sex. Observed trends were extrapolated to estimate group-specific BMI projections for the period 2015-2038; these were weighted by projected population sizes to calculate population-wide BMI projections...

OBJECTIVES: The substantial public health benefits of autonomous vehicles will be optimised once all vehicles operate in autonomous mode. This form of disruptive technology will need to be widely accepted by the community to facilitate the regulatory and behavioural adjustments required to achieve rapid adoption. The aim of this study was to assess: i) receptiveness to autonomous vehicles; ii) the salience of various health benefits (e.g. crash prevention, emission reduction, driving stress reduction, cyclist safety, increased mobility for those unable to drive); and iii) prompted awareness of these health benefits...

OBJECTIVE: We explored how sugar-sweetened beverages are marketed to Australian young people through sugar-sweetened beverage brand Facebook pages. METHODS: We undertook a content analysis of Facebook posts made by six of the most popular sugar-sweetened beverage Facebook pages in Australia. Data were collected for a six-month period and were quantitatively analysed for descriptive data and explicit marketing techniques and then thematically analysed for implicit marketing messages...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the combined longitudinal effect of body mass index (BMI) and physical activity (PA) on health-related quality of life (HrQoL), using the SF-6D (SF-36) utility measure. METHODS: Five waves of self-reported data from the 1946-51 cohort (n=5,200; data collection, 2001-2013) of the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women's Health were used. Mixed effect models were employed to address the objective. RESULTS: Women with high PA experienced higher HrQoL regardless of BMI group, however, for those healthy or overweight, there was a very small decline in HrQoL over time...

OBJECTIVE: Transport impacts teenagers by affecting their autonomy and independent access to activities. This manuscript reports descriptive findings of transport behaviours among teenagers in Southland, New Zealand, and discusses the implications of these for public health and policy. METHODS: An online survey was implemented to investigate transport among respondents aged 16 years and older from twelve secondary schools. Two methods of survey distribution were used (in-class and at home)...

OBJECTIVES: Healthy ageing has been unattainable for many of Australia's First Nation people, driven by an earlier onset of chronic disease when compared to the general Australian population. Our objective was to examine the perspectives of Australian First Nation people about healthy ageing. METHODS: We used a conversational method to gather knowledge from older First Nation people from established communities in New South Wales, Australia. Discussions were audio recorded and transcribed and analysed using an Indigenous research standpoint methodology...

OBJECTIVE: The prevalence of modifiable health risk factors and psychological distress following a stroke is high and markedly increase the chance of a second stroke. This study aimed to examine the usability and acceptability of an online secondary prevention program addressing modifiable psycho-behavioural risk factors for stroke survivors. METHODS: A pre-post pilot study was conducted in Australia between 2016 and 2017. Participants were recruited through the Australian Stroke Clinical Registry and completed measures of health-related quality of life, physical activity, smoking status, depression and anxiety, alcohol status, nutrition and internet use...
