  1. 21. Health economic aspects of diabetic retinopathy

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Emelie Heintz; Lars-Åke Levin; Ann-Britt Wiréhn; Josephine Mauskopf; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; diabetes; diabetic retinopathy; health economic evaluations; quality-adjusted life years; costs; quality of life; prevalence;

    Abstract : To ensure that the resources of the health care sector are used effectively, new technologies need to be evaluated before implementation to examine if they generate health outcomes at an acceptable cost. This information can be collected by performing health economic evaluations in which the costs and health outcomes of different technologies are compared. READ MORE

  2. 22. Phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of an inducible morphological defence in crucian carp

    University dissertation from Department of Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Lars Pettersson; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Animal ecology; Benefits; Costs; Predation; Chemical cues; Fish; Djurekologi;

    Abstract : In this thesis, I have investigated factors (cues, benefits, and costs) affecting the evolution of an inducible morphological defence in crucian carp (Carassius carassius). Inducible defences are favoured over permanent defences when prey have reliable cues to detect predators, when defences are effective but costly, and when predation pressure is variable and unpredictable, but sometimes strong.

  3. 23. Building Physics Tools: Needs, Use and the Lack of Use in the Building Process. Modelling Non-Isothermal Moisture Flow and Frost Penetration

    University dissertation from Byggnadsfysik LTH, Lunds Tekniska Högskola

    Author : Stephen Burke; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; isothermal; costs; building physics tools; moisture damages; learning loop; experience; causal loop diagrams; non-isothermal; moisture transport;

    Abstract : Despite advances in material science, computers and building technology, building failures related to building physics continue to occur. These failures range from a building not meeting its energy use target to a building causing people to become ill from exposure to various chemicals or biological organisms. READ MORE

  4. 24. Prescribed physical activity. A health economic analysis

    University dissertation from Physiotherapy

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; physical activity; inactivity; costs; cost-effectiveness; quality of life; exercise referral; QALY; willingness to pay.;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to estimate health economic consequences of the four-month primary care program ”Physical Activity on Prescription (PAP)”. Inactivity means a highly increased independent risk factor for public health diseases and morbidity, and is an economic burden to society. READ MORE
