Estimating bias from internet non-use for a hybrid web vaccination survey - 2013-2017 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System.

Vaccine 2021 Jun 11. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

Division of Population Health, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, Georgia, United States.

Objective: To maintain acceptable response rates, the cost has grown for vaccination surveys that use traditional data collection modes, such as face-to-face and telephone interviews. Conducting a web or internet survey could be a low-cost alternative. However, because the internet is not used by everyone, we need to study how prevalence estimates in web surveys for vaccination surveillance could be affected by internet non-use. Read More

The systematic development of a mobile phone-delivered brief intervention for hazardous drinking in India.

J Subst Abuse Treat 2021 Jul 15;126:108331. Epub 2021 Feb 15.

Addictions Research Group, Sangath, H No 451 (168), Bhatkar Waddo, Socorro, Bardez, Porvorim, Goa 403501, India; Tees, Esk and Wear NHS Foundation Trust, UK.

Background: The treatment gap for alcohol use disorders (AUD) in India is the highest among all mental health and substance use disorders. Despite evidence of the cost effectiveness of brief interventions (BIs) for hazardous drinking, implementation in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) is rare due to several human resource-related barriers. This paper describes the processes and outputs of a study aimed at systematically developing a mobile phone-delivered BI to overcome such barriers. Read More

Using a Tailored Digital Health Intervention for Family Communication and Cascade Genetic Testing in Swiss and Korean Families With Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer: Protocol for the DIALOGUE Study.

JMIR Res Protoc 2021 Jun 11;10(6):e26264. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

Department of Clinical Research, University of Basel, Basel, Switzerland.

Background: In hereditary breast and ovarian cancer (HBOC), family communication of genetic test results is essential for cascade genetic screening, that is, identifying and testing blood relatives of known mutation carriers to determine whether they also carry the pathogenic variant, and to propose preventive and clinical management options. However, up to 50% of blood relatives are unaware of relevant genetic information, suggesting that potential benefits of genetic testing are not communicated effectively within family networks. Technology can facilitate communication and genetic education within HBOC families. Read More

Adaptation of a Live Video Mind-Body Program to a Web-Based Platform for English-Speaking Adults With Neurofibromatosis: Protocol for the NF-Web Study.

JMIR Res Protoc 2021 Jun 10;10(6):e27526. Epub 2021 Jun 10.

Integrated Brain Health Clinical and Research Program, Department of Psychiatry, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA, United States.

Background: Neurofibromatosis (NF) is a rare genetic condition associated with lower but modifiable quality of life (QoL). Although a virtual live video program (Relaxation Response Resiliency Program for Neurofibromatosis [3RP-NF]; efficacy randomized controlled trial underway) that we created has been made available, ongoing barriers impede some patients from engaging in this intervention. A necessary next step is to develop a stand-alone web-based intervention that reduces barriers to accessing NF-specific psychosocial care. Read More
