  The rising global burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) necessitates the institutionalization of surveillance systems to track trends and evaluate interventions. However, NCD surveillance capacities vary across high- and low- and middle-income countries. The objective of the review was to analyse existing literature with respect to structures of health facility-based NCD surveillance.   Diagnosis in General Practice. Dr. Heneghan and his colleagues agree that the hypothetico- deductive method rather than the laborious inductive method is most commonly used by clinicians during the process of making a diagnosis.1 They describe three stages (initiation, refinement and definition) and various strategies used.

Delay in the diagnosis of cancer in general practice can cause distress to every physician. This useful manual aims to aid the general practitioner in a timely diagnosis. Written using the author's long-time experience from consultations and research in general practice, it is . It is important that women of all ages understand the importance of finding and treating breast cancer early. Detection of breast cancer while it is still small and confined to the breast provides the best chance of effective treatment for women with the disease. 1, 2 Benefits of early detection include increased survival, increased treatment options and improved quality of life.

The calculation of sensitivity and predictive value is described in detail in the updated guidelines for evaluating public health surveillance systems. Measurement of sensitivity requires an alternative data source of high quality (e.g., "gold" standard) to confirm outbreaks in the population that were missed by the surveillance system. The challenges of early diagnosis of cancer in general practice Article in The Medical journal of Australia (10) November with 23 Reads How we measure 'reads'.
