The participation rate applies only to active case finding and is defined as the number of persons screened by the mobile teams divided by the target population.
The overall HAT detection rate, based on active case finding, declined from 1.
The participation rate of the population in active case finding was almost 96% in 1998.
Retrospective case finding
in the city of Poti and region of Samegrelo, both of which previously reported no cases, identified three unreported, possible cases of botulism from 1996 through 2002: one involved incorrect reporting of the site of residence, the second involved failure of a physician to report, and the third involved failure of an epidemiologist to report.
Most endocrinologists advocate a liberal approach to such case finding
Average numbers of persons infected and average times to outbreak detection through clinical case finding for 3 release scenarios * Amount Mean no.
Our methods are an advance over those used in previous studies because we were able to examine rigorously, within a single modeling framework, the ability of clinical case finding and syndromic surveillance to detect anthrax outbreaks.
When we compared the performance of clinical case finding with that of syndromic surveillance for detecting an inhalational anthrax outbreak, we found that clinical case finding detected outbreaks on average 3.
1 Scale-up of intensified TB case finding will require increased awareness among clinicians, task shifting and expansion of screening outside the traditional clinic setting.
The yield of intensified TB case finding and therefore the number needed to screen to diagnose one new TB case is variable and depends on TB incidence in the general population, the setting (e.

Dr Andrew Wakefield, pictured, said the General Medical Council (GMC) hearing was about protecting the Government's MMR vaccination policy and some of the GMC's case findings
