Cost and economic models to inform family interventions for child maltreatment or adversity, or domestic violence or abuse
Child maltreatment (CM), and domestic violence and abuse (DVA) are highly prevalent violations of human rights, associated with a spectrum of adverse short- and long-term impacts on the health, wellbeing and life opportunities of affected individuals.
Both CM and DVA share multiple common family and environmental risk factors, leading to co-occurrence of CM and DVA in approximately 30% to 60% of households. To date, economic impact studies have considered CM or DVA individually but have not accounted for the impact of co-occurrence on outcomes and subsequent costs to society.
|Methodology description:||Anonymised data from GP records held within CPRD (Clinical practice research datalink) will be used to;
Data from the feasibility study of the SAFER programme (https://www.safer.phpc.cam.ac.uk/) will be used to investigate the optimum frequency and pattern of 30 second AF screening using a handheld electronic device.
Systematic reviews of the prognosis of asymptomatic atrial fibrillation as an indication of the prognosis of screen detected AF and of methods of screening for paroxysmal AF (single time point/intermittent/continuous) will be completed.
