Low Pathogenic Avian Influenza Exposure Risk Assessment in Australian Commercial Chicken Farms

Angela Bullanday Scott, Jenny-Ann Toribio, Mini Singh, Peter Groves, Belinda Barnes, Kathryn Glass, Barbara Moloney, Amanda Black, Marta Hernandez-Jover
2018 Frontiers in Veterinary Science  
This study investigated the pathways of exposure to low pathogenic avian influenza (LPAI) virus among Australian commercial chicken farms and estimated the likelihood of this exposure occurring using scenario trees and a stochastic modeling approach following the World Organization for Animal Health methodology for risk assessment. Input values for the models were sourced from scientific literature and an on-farm survey conducted during 2015 and 2016 among Australian commercial chicken farms

Outputs from the models revealed that the probability of a first LPAI virus exposure to a chicken in an Australian commercial chicken farms from one wild bird at any point in time is extremely low. A comparative assessment revealed that across the five farm types (non-free-range meat chicken, free-range meat chicken, cage layer, barn layer, and free range layer farms), free-range layer farms had the highest probability of exposure (7.5 × 10 −4 ; 5% and 95%, 5.7 × 10 −4 -0.001). The results indicate that the presence of a large number of wild birds on farm is required for exposure to occur across all farm types. The median probability of direct exposure was highest in free-range farm types (5.6 × 10 −4 and 1.6 × 10 −4 for free-range layer and free-range meat chicken farms, respectively) and indirect exposure was highest in non-free-range farm types (2.7 × 10 −4 , 2.0 × 10 −4 , and 1.9 × 10 −4 for non-free-range meat chicken, cage layer, and barn layer farms, respectively). The probability of exposure was found to be lowest in summer for all farm types. Sensitivity analysis revealed that the proportion of waterfowl among wild birds on the farm, the presence of waterfowl in the range and feed storage areas, and the prevalence of LPAI in wild birds are the most influential parameters for the probability of Australian commercial chicken farms being exposed to avian influenza (AI) virus. These results highlight the importance of ensuring good biosecurity on farms to minimize the risk of exposure to AI virus and the importance of continuous surveillance of LPAI prevalence including subtypes in wild bird populations.

Belongingness in Early Secondary School: Key Factors that Primary and Secondary Schools Need to Consider

2015 PLoS ONE  
It is unknown if, and how, students redefine their sense of school belongingness after negotiating the transition to secondary school. The current study used longitudinal data from 266 students with, and without, disabilities who negotiated the transition from 52 primary schools to 152 secondary schools. The study presents the 13 most significant personal student and contextual factors associated with belongingness in the first year of secondary school. Student perception of school

Primary school belongingness accounted for 22% of the variability in secondary school belongingness. Several personal student factors (competence, coping skills) and school factors (low-level classroom task-goal orientation), which influenced belongingness in primary school, continued to influence belongingness in secondary school. In secondary school, effort-goal orientation of the student and perception of their school's tolerance to disability were each associated with perception of school belongingness. Family factors did not influence belongingness in secondary school. Findings of the current study highlight the need for primary schools to foster belongingness among their students at an early age, and transfer students' belongingness profiles as part of the handover documentation. Most of the factors that influenced school belongingness before and after the transition to secondary are amenable to change.

2020 Injury  
Information about children treated in New South Wales (NSW), Australia following major injury has been limited to those treated at trauma centres using mortality as the main outcome measure, restricting assessment of the effectiveness of the Trauma System. This study sought to describe the detailed characteristics as well as functional and psychosocial health outcomes of all children suffering major injury in NSW. A longitudinal study was conducted between July 2015 and November 2017 and

Children were identified through the three NSW Paediatric Trauma Centres (PTC), the NSW Trauma Registry, NSW Aeromedical Retrieval Registry (AirMaestro) and the National Coronial Information System (NCIS). Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) outcomes for children treated at the three PTCs were collected at baseline, 6 and 12 months using the Paediatric Quality of Life inventory (PedsQL 4.0) and EuroQol five-dimensional EQ-5D-Y. There were 625 children, with a median (interquartile range) age of 7 (2-13) years and 71.7% were male. Around half were injured in major cities (51.2%). The median (IQR) injury severity score (ISS) was 10 (9-17). Twelve-month HRQoL measured by PedsQL remained below baseline for psychosocial health. Treatment costs increased with injury severity (p=<0.001) and polytrauma (p=<0.001). No survival benefit was demonstrated between PTC versus non-PTC definitive care. Injured females and children from rural / remote NSW were overrepresented in the deceased. Children treated in NSW following major injury have reduced quality of life and in particular, reduced emotional well-being at 12 months post-injury. Improved psychosocial care and outpatient follow-up is required to minimise the long-term emotional impact of injury on the child.
