Liam E. Marshall*, Stephanie Humphries, Jennifer Roters and Alison Davis
This paper examines sexual addiction and adult attachment in incarcerated sexual offenders and a socioeconomically matched community comparison group. Previous research has shown sexual offenders to have greater problems with sexual addiction and be more likely to report an insecure attachment style than matched community comparisons.
The cost effectiveness of brief intervention by primary health care workers to reduce alcohol related disease and injury in Vietnam
Christopher M Doran*, Nguyen Minh Tam, Nguyen Hoang Lan, Hue Tran, Peter Hill
This study examines the cost-effectiveness of early identification and brief advice for people with hazardous and harmful alcohol use in Vietnam. Two scenarios in which BI is financed by the government (BI-GOV) and non-government organisations (BI-NGO) were compared with current practice. Costs and health outcomes were measured over a 10 year period, referenced to 2006 and discounted at 3%. Cost-effectiveness was modelled using a multi-state and multiple cohort life table approach using a Vietnamese health sector perspective.
