Quitting activity and tobacco brand switching: findings from the ITC-4 Country Survey.
Abstract OBJECTIVE: Among Australian smokers, to examine associations between cigarette brand switching, quitting activity and possible causal directions by lagging the relationships in different directions. METHODS: Current smokers from nine waves (2002 to early 2012) of the ITC-4 Country Survey Australian dataset were surveyed. Measures were brand switching, both brand family and product type (roll-your-own versus factory-made cigarettes) reported in adjacent waves, interest in quitting, recent quit attempts, and one month sustained abstinence. RESULTS: Switching at one interval was unrelated to concur...

Tobacco tax and the illicit trade in tobacco products in New Zealand.
CONCLUSIONS: The results highlight a slight rise in small-scale tobacco smuggling through ports and mail centres. However, tobacco returns figures show that current tobacco tax policy has forced manufacturers to focus on the production of cheap legal tobacco products, directly competing with and undercutting the demand for illicit tobacco products. At the same time, locally grown illicit tobacco continues to remain a small, isolated problem and, with recent cuts in duty free tobacco allowance, it is expected that overall illicit tobacco will remain a very small proportion of total tobacco consumption in NZ.

Sociodemographic differences in the incidence of oropharyngeal and oral cavity squamous cell cancers in New Zealand.
CONCLUSIONS: The recent rapid rise in male oropharyngeal SCCs occurred primarily among those aged ≥40 years old. IMPLICATIONS: Given oropharyngeal SCCs are more strongly associated with human papillomaviruses (HPV) than OCCs, OPC prevention may be enhanced through HPV vaccination and public health awareness. Clinically, as HPV-related OPCs have a better prognosis and response to radiotherapy, an improvement in survival rates can be predicted.

Trends in incidence of primary brain cancer in New Zealand, 1995 to 2010.
Conclusion: In New Zealand, there has been no consistent increase in incidence rates of primary brain cancers. An increase in glioma at ages over 70 is likely to be due to improvements in diagnosis. As with any such studies, a small effect, or one with a latent period of more than 10 to 15 years, cannot be excluded.

Methods: Key challenges in measuring alcohol consumption at the population level are identified and discussed with respect to how they apply to burden of disease frameworks. Results: Methodological advances and limitations in the estimation of alcohol consumption are presented with respect to use of survey data, population distributions of alcohol consumption, consideration of 'patterns' of alcohol use including 'bingeing', and capping exposure. Key recommendations...

Abstract Aim: To determine Victorian women's knowledge of the recommended Pap test screening interval and support for extending the interval from two years to three years, in light of possible changes to the National Cervical Screening Program. Methods: A random sample of 2,360 women aged 18-69 was interviewed by telephone about their knowledge of the recommended interval, their willingness to change to three-yearly screening if recommended and reasons for their preference. Results: More than 91% of women were aware of the current screening recommendation and nearly half (48.7%) indicated they would be willing to ...

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health: accuracy of patient self-report of screening for diabetes, high cholesterol and cervical cancer.
Conclusions: The results indicate that reliance on self-report for patients' screening history is inappropriate due to missed opportunities for health gain. However, patients who report not being tested are sufficiently accurate to ensure that ordering the test in this group will involve only a small percentage of unnecessary assays. Implications: GPs often rely on self-report as a fast and inexpensive way to determine whether a patient requires screening. New strategies are needed to identify patients at risk.

Data linkage capabilities in Australia: practical issues identified by a Population Health Research Network 'Proof of Concept project'
Conclusions: While a sound state and national data linkage infrastructure is in place, the current complexity, duplication and lack of cohesion undermines any attempts to conduct research involving national record linkage in a timely manner. Implications: Data linkage applications and Human Research Ethics Committee approval processes need to be streamlined and duplication removed, in order to reduce the administrative and financial burden on researchers if national data linkage research is to be viable.

Conclusions: The sector supports people experiencing disadvantage and involves multiple organisations, working in a variety of settings, to provide food for up to 8% of the population. The limits on the sector's capacity to address food insecurity by itself must be acknowledged so that civil society, government and the food industry can support sufficient, nutritious and affordable food for all.

Child physical activity levels and associations with modifiable characteristics in centre-based childcare.
Abstract Objective: To describe children's physical activity levels during childcare and associations with modifiable characteristics. Methods: A cross-sectional study of 328 preschool children (43% girls; age 3-5 years) and 145 staff from 20 long day care centres in the Hunter Region of NSW, Australia. Pedometers assessed child physical activity levels. Centre characteristics and staff attitudes and behaviours towards children's physical activity were assessed using surveys, interviews and observational audit. Results were analysed using descriptive statistics and linear regression. Results: Over the measurement ...

The cascade of care for Australians living with chronic hepatitis B: measuring access to diagnosis, management and treatment.
Conclusions: This analysis reveals substantial gaps in the cascade of care for CHB in Australia, most notably in diagnosis (with 43% undiagnosed) and in recommended yearly monitoring (87% not in care). The number receiving therapy represents only one-third of those estimated to require treatment to prevent progressive liver disease and liver cancer. Implications: These findings demonstrate that the majority of those affected are not receiving guideline-based care; highlight the need for improvements in opportunistic screening, engagement in care, and access to therapy; and provide a method to assess the impact of public he...

Should support for obesity interventions or perceptions of their perceived effectiveness shape policy?
Conclusions: Potentially important differences exist between the measures the general public say they support to address obesity, which favour personal responsibility and education, and those they believe will be effective, which include more environmental interventions. Implications: Simply measuring the popularity of measures to reduce obesity produces an incomplete picture of public opinion. Examining the perceived efficacy of different interventions offers a complementary perspective that policy makers should also consider.

A robust estimate of the number and characteristics of persons released from prison in Australia.
Conclusions: The annual 'flow' through Australia's prisons is well in excess of the daily number, but information on those moving through prison systems is not yet publicly available. The characteristics of those released from prison differ meaningfully from those of people in prison. Routine, national reporting of prison separations is critical to informing upscaling and targeting of Throughcare services for this profoundly vulnerable population.

Alcohol policy impact on young risky drinkers and their support for proposed measures.
Conclusions: Age- or intoxication-based restrictions to alcohol were commonly bypassed. Implications: Point-of-sale alcohol controls require improvement to prevent under age access. Given that a significant proportion of drinking occasions for those under 18 were in private premises, prevention strategies need to target these locations. There were diverse levels of support for strategies to reduce harm, including potential community backing for an evidence-based proposed price policy.

CONCLUSIONS: There has been a low uptake of pregnancy counselling covered by the Medicare Benefits Item numbers introduced in 2006, especially for services provided by allied health professionals.
