Injury control is one of the four priorities of the current National Health Strategy. Injury control targets are an integral part of this strategy and these require the measurement of the incidence of selected injuries. The strategy encourages local community based injury prevention programs. These...
Queensland has the highest reported incidence of malignant melanoma in the world, and early detection offers the possibility of reducing the burden of this cancer in the short term. We report on a survey of 995 residents of the Gold Coast, Queensland, regarding behavioural aspects of the early...
Smoking cessation reduces both the mortality and re-infarction rate amongst smokers who have experienced a myocardial infarction (MI). Smoking cessation programs have tended to be conducted with post-operative or seriously ill patients. In this study, we examined the efficacy of a relapse...
The efficacy of a school-based intervention was evaluated using a randomized controlled trial in Australia. In consecutive grades (8, 9, and 10), students in the intervention group received components of a program that addressed issues related to the need to protect yourself from the sun,...
Smoking during pregnancy has been linked to health problems, including the risk of low birthweight, preterm labour, spontaneous abortion and perinatal death. Two trials to investigate the efficacy of self-help materials were undertaken. During the first trial, a self-help booklet developed overseas...

The degree of disjunction, δ(F), of a family F of functions is the least cardinal Ï„ such that every pair of functions in F agree on a set of cardinality less than Ï„. Suppose θ, μ, λ, κ are non-zero cardinals with θ ≤ μ ≤ λ. This paper is concerned with functions which map μ-sized...

Assume GCH. Let κ, μ, Σ be cardinals, with κ infinite. Let be a family consisting of λ pairwise almost disjoint subsets of Σ each of size κ, whose union is Σ. In this note it is shown that for each μ with 1 ≤ μ ≤min(λ, Σ), there is a “large” almost disjoint family of...
