The traditional paradigm that relies upon training physicians and nurses or uses on-site interventionists to perform screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment (SBIRT) for al...
POPULATION: Low back pain (LBP) is a major health problem commonly requiring health care. In Sweden, primary care professionals require an evidenced based model of care for LBP. INTERVENT...
To evaluate the Model SC9 Intraocular Lens for the improvement of near and intermediate vision when compared to a legally marketed monofocal IOL.
Following the announcement of the global "90-90-90" strategy, there is a huge need in South Africa for effective well-developed scaled-up models of ART (anti-retroviral therapy) delivery t...
"STRENGTHS" is a transdisciplinary implementation research study, guided by the PRECEDE-PROCEED framework, to address the challenge of improving hypertension control in low-resource settin...
Crowdfunding is gradually becoming a modern marketing pattern. By noting that the success of crowdfunding depends on network externalities, our research aims to utilize these network externalities to ...
Approximately 25% of school-aged children in the United States have vision abnormalities, most commonly refractive error that can be corrected with spectacles. Limited follow-up adherence after failed...
To assess the performance of the referral management system (RMS) compared to a previous paper-based referral system and to determine whether referrals reflected the patients' malocclusion and met cur...

Statistical formulations or analyses which, when applied to data and found to fit the data, are then used to verify the assumptions and parameters used in the analysis. Examples of statistical models are the linear model, binomial model, polynomial model, two-parameter model, etc.
Theoretical models simulating behavior or activities in nursing, including nursing care, management and economics, theory, assessment, research, and education. Some examples of these models include Orem Self-Care Model, Roy Adaptation Model, and Rogers Life Process Model.
A principle of estimation in which the estimates of a set of parameters in a statistical model are those quantities minimizing the sum of squared differences between the observed values of a dependent variable and the values predicted by the model.
Referral by physicians to testing or treatment facilities in which they have financial interest. The practice is regulated by the Ethics in Patient Referrals Act of 1989.
Functions constructed from a statistical model and a set of observed data which give the probability of that data for various values of the unknown model parameters. Those parameter values that maximize the probability are the maximum likelihood estimates of the parameters.
