BACKGROUND: There is on ongoing debate in the literature regarding the real burden of STIs (sexually transmitted infections) in Western countries and the proper strategies needed to estimate and to prevent them. Our purpose is to present an evidence-based national strategic plan for STI prevention in Israel through assessing the current burden of illness, leading international preventive strategies, and practical policymaking experience. METHODS: Epidemiologic and health policy data on STIs were analyzed from various sources: a) systematic national surveillance data for the years 2002-2014; b) the international scientific literature (published between 2002-16; keywords: Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) (or STI) AND prevention AND intervention AND gonorrhea OR chlamydia OR syphilis; c) internal Ministry of Health (MOH) analyses and reports, and d) expert opinion...

BACKGROUND: Participant recruitment is an ongoing challenge in health research. Recruitment may be especially difficult for studies of access to health care because, even among those who are in care, people using services least often also may be hardest to contact and recruit. Opt-out recruitment methods (in which potential participants are given the opportunity to decline further contact about the study (opt out) following an initial mailing, and are then contacted directly if they have not opted out within a specified period) can be used for such studies...

AIMS/HYPOTHESIS: Contemporary data on diabetic foot ulcer prevalence are scarce. Most studies were conducted in the 1990s, reporting incidence rates of 1.9-2.6%. Since then the prevalence of diabetes has doubled and the organisation of diabetes care has undergone major changes. Up-to-date data that quantify the occurrence of diabetic foot ulcers are required and could serve as baseline measures for future studies. METHODS: Individuals with diabetes (n = 81,793) were identified from the NIVEL (Netherlands institute for health services research) Primary Care Database, which contains data for standardised routine care and is representative of the Dutch population...

REVIEW
Ashton H Goldman, Stephen Kates
PURPOSE OF THE REVIEW: Recent health laws have shifted from the traditional fee-for-service model toward a pay-for-performance model. In this changing climate, it is imperative that a provider understands these changes and recognizes the importance of health services research on medicine. RECENT FINDINGS: Increasing the value of care by improving quality and decreasing cost has been the focus of several projects. Preventing complications may be an effective way to increase value...

Achieving comprehensive patient centricity in cost-effectiveness analyses (CEAs) requires a statistical approach that accounts for patients' preferences and clinical and demographic characteristics. Increased availability and accessibility of patient-level health-related utility data from clinical trials or observational database provide enhanced opportunities to conduct more patient-centered CEA. Regression-based approaches that incorporate patient-level data hold great promise for enhancing CEAs to be more patient centered; this paper provides guidance regarding two CEA approaches that apply regression-based approaches utilizing patient-level health-related utility and costs data...
