    Using linked administrative data for monitoring and evaluating the Family Nurse Partnership in England: A scoping report

    Get PDF
    This report, commissioned by the FNP National Unit and undertaken by researchers at UCL and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, presents a scoping review of how population-based linkage between data from the Family Nurse Partnership (FNP) in England and administrative datasets from other services could be used to generate evidence for commissioning, service evaluation and research. It addresses the methodological considerations, permission pathways and technical challenges of using data from the FNP linked with routinely collected, administrative data from other public services for population-based analyses, at a national and local authority level. Our ambition, when commissioning this work, was to explore whether linking data from FNP with administrative datasets might help provide a richer view about how the FNP intervention is affecting different cohorts of clients and their child after they have graduated. The report suggests that the potential for data linkage to support ongoing evaluation of a wide range of interventions including FNP at a national level is promising and an important area to explore. It makes a significant contribution to understanding the possibilities and constraints for doing this, which include barriers to data linkage at a local level (which we know is crucial for local commissioners) and the significant investment required to realise the potential of this project. We believe this report offers valuable insights other organisations interested in the delivery of evidence based policy may want to pursue

    The characterization and manipulation of the bacterial microbiome of the Rocky Mountain wood tick, Dermacentor andersoni

    BACKGROUND: In North America, ticks are the most economically impactful vectors of human and animal pathogens. The Rocky Mountain wood tick, Dermacentor andersoni (Acari: Ixodidae), transmits Rickettsia rickettsii and Anaplasma marginale to humans and cattle, respectively. In recent years, studies have shown that symbiotic organisms are involved in a number of biochemical and physiological functions. Characterizing the bacterial microbiome of D. andersoni is a pivotal step towards understanding symbiont-host interactions. FINDINGS: In this study, we have shown by high-throughput sequence analysis that the composition of endosymbionts in the midgut and salivary glands in adult ticks is dynamic over three generations. Four Proteobacteria genera, Rickettsia, Francisella, Arsenophonus, and Acinetobacter, were identified as predominant symbionts in these two tissues. Exposure to therapeutic doses of the broad-spectrum antibiotic, oxytetracycline, affected both proportions of predominant genera and significantly reduced reproductive fitness. Additionally, Acinetobacter, a free-living ubiquitous microbe, invaded the bacterial microbiome at different proportions based on antibiotic treatment status suggesting that microbiome composition may have a role in susceptibility to environmental contaminants. CONCLUSIONS: This study characterized the bacterial microbiome in D. andersoni and determined the generational variability within this tick. Furthermore, this study confirmed that microbiome manipulation is associated with tick fitness and may be a potential method for biocontrol
