BACKGROUND Although there is emerging data regarding the psychometric properties of the Child Health Utility-9D instrument, more evidence is required with respect to its validity for use in different country settings. The aim of this study was to examine the construct validity of the CHU-9D-CHN instrument in Chinese children. METHODS Baseline Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQoL) and demographic data were collected from children recruited to the CHIRPY DRAGON obesity prevention intervention ran...

Objectives: Rapid socioeconomic and nutrition transitions in Chinese populations have contributed to the growth in childhood obesity. This study presents a cost-effectiveness analysis of a school- and family-based childhood obesity prevention programme in China. Methods: A trial-based economic evaluation assessed cost-effectiveness at 12 months. Forty schools with 1,641 children were randomised to either receive the multi-component (diet and physical activity) intervention or to continue with us...

BACKGROUND Pregnancy is a high-risk time for excessive weight gain. The rising prevalence of obesity in women, combined with excess weight gain during pregnancy, means that there are more women with obesity in the postnatal period. This can have adverse health consequences for women in later life and increases the health risks during subsequent pregnancies. OBJECTIVE The primary aim was to produce evidence of whether or not a Phase III trial of a brief weight management intervention, in which po...

Background null Economic evaluations aim to inform decision-makers about the cost-effectiveness of health interventions. However, currently economic evaluations may be underutilised by local public health decision-makers. null Whilst research has been conducted with public health decision-makers, the needs and priorities of those primarily concerned with sexual health services (SHS) have not been fully considered. This research aimed to gain an insight into how decision-makers based in England, ...

Importance Idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) causes headaches, vision loss, and reduced quality of life. Sustained weight loss among patients with IIH is necessary to modify the disease and prevent relapse. Objective To compare the effectiveness of bariatric surgery with that of a community weight management (CWM) intervention for the treatment of patients with active IIH. Design, Setting, and Participants This 5-year randomized clinical trial (Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension Weigh...

Background The Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension Weight Trial (IIH:WT) established the efficacy of bariatric surgery as compared to a community weight management intervention in reducing intracranial pressure in active IIH. The aim of this cost-effectiveness analysis was to evaluate the economic impact of these weight loss treatments for IIH. Methods IIH:WT was a five-year randomised, controlled, parallel group, multicentre trial in the United Kingdom, where participants with active IIH and a...

Abstract Background Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (IIH) is associated with significant morbidity, predominantly affecting women of childbearing age living with obesity. Weight loss has demonstrated successful disease-modifying effects, however the long-term cost-effectiveness of weight loss interventions for the treatment of IIH has not yet been established. Objective To estimate the cost-effectiveness of weight-loss treatments for IIH Setting Single-payer health care system (National Hea...

Objective To identify economic evaluations of interventions to control STIs and HIV targeting young people, and to assess how costs and outcomes are measured in these studies. Design Systematic review. Data sources Seven databases were searched (Medline (Ovid), EMBASE (Ovid), Web of Science, PsycINFO, NHS Economic Evaluation Database, NHS Health Technology Assessment and Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects) from January 1999 to April 2019. Key search terms were STIs (chlamydia, gonorrhoe...

Schools are an ideal setting to deliver public health interventions, yet there are competing obligations that could limit their implementation. This study aimed to examine the decision making process and explore what evidence informs prioritisation of public health interventions in this setting. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 14 staff in seven UK schools between November 2017 and March 2018. Participants were recruited from schools participating in The Birmingham Daily Mile trial...
