Aims

Paying people has demonstrated efficacy in encouraging healthy behaviours such as weight reduction, smoking cessation and vaccination. During a research project designed to test the effectiveness of bringing chlamydia screening to tertiary campuses in the ACT we tested the hypothesis that offering students a cash incentive to be screened would increase participation in chlamydia screening among students aged 16-25 years.


Methods

Between February and September 2007, students on eight ACT tertiary campuses were offered education, health promotional activities and (after providing verbal consent) free chlamydia screening at a number of student initiated events (Period 1). During one four-day event students were sent an SMS message inviting them to be screened and were offered $10.00 for doing so (Period 2). The message suggested that they pass the information on to their peers (Flashmob technique). The rate of screening is compared between the two periods.


Results

During 34 on-campus events in Period 1, 2702 students received health promotional materials and information about chlamydia and 659 (24.4%) urine specimens were collected from 648 individuals (11 students had more than 1 test during the 7 month period, all of which were clinically appropriate). During the four-day event, 894 SMS messages were sent out and 529 students provided 613 urine specimens for testing (i.e. 53 students provided more than one urine specimen - range 2-5 specimens). Uptake of chlamydia screening was significantly higher among male students during Period 2 (p> 0.003)


Conclusions

Cash incentives increased participation in on campus chlamydia screening particularly among male students, but resulted in a significant proportion of potentially clinically inappropriate repeat tests.


Grant acknowledgment

This project was funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing, as part of a National Chlamydia Pilot program that is currently running to test the effectiveness of a number of models for chlamydia testing in Australia. This project will assist in developing possible recommendations for a National Chlamydia Program.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY MANAGEMENT AND COMMERCIALISATION FOR PUBLIC RESEARCH HOSPITALS: LESSONS FROM NSW


DA Kuchler

Chairman, The National Health Sciences Centre Limited, Canberra, 2600

Deborah@DeborahKuchler.com


Intellectual property (IP) management is conceptually similar to managing any major asset and involves instituting a governance structure to maintain the asset in an exploitable condition and to manage the risks to which the IP asset may be exposed. Inadequate management may result in loss of the asset’s value and wider losses (both financial and non-financial) for the IP asset owner.


Intellectual property commercialisation is the process of developing and preparing an IP asset until it is able to make a commercial financial return at which point it is considered to be commercialised.


This presentation discusses Intellectual Property (IP) Management and Commercialisation at Northern Sydney Central Coast Health since 2001 and at Sydney West Area Health Service since 2004, including the lessons learnt from these experiences which have application to other Public Research Hospitals. The presentation describes and discusses IP asset risks, and outlines governance structures designed to minimise and manage such risks. There are many routes to commercialisation and these routes will be described and the advantages and disadvantages will be discussed for a public research hospital such as The Canberra Hospital in the ACT.
