Highly sensitivie or specific? Correct Answer: Sensitive. Screening tests with high sensitivity are good for diseases with low prevalence Chronic diseases such as SLE - higher prevalence or incidence? Correct Answer: Higher prevalence Epidemics such as influenza - higher prevalence or incidence? Correct Answer: Higher incidence What is the difference between incidence and prevalence? Correct Answer: Prevalence is the precentage of cases of disease in a population at one snapshot in time. Incidence is the percentage of new cases of disease that develop over a given time period among the total population at risk Cross-sectional survey - incidence or prevalence?

Correct Answer: Neither Describe a test that consistently gives identical results, but the results are wrong Correct Answer: High reliability (precision), low validity (accuracy) Difference between a cohort and a case-control study Correct Answer: Cohort studies can be used to calculate RR< incidence and/or odds ratio. Case-control studies can be used to calculate an OR< which is an estimate of RR when the disease prevalence is low Attributable risk? Correct Answer: The difference in risk in the exposed and unexposed groups (ie, the risk that is attributable to exposure) Relative risk? Correct Answer: Incidence in the exposed group divided by the incidence in the nonexposed group The results of a hypothetical study found an association between ASA intake and risk of heart dz. How do you interpret an RR of 1.5? Correct Answer: In patients who took ASA, the risk of heart dz was 1.5 times that of patients who did not take ASA Odds ratio? Correct Answer: In cohort studies, the odds of developing the disease in the expose group divided by the odds of developing the disease in the nonexposed group. In case-control studies, the odds that the cases were exposed divided by the odds that the controls were exposed. In cross-sectional studies, the odds that the exposed group has the disease divided by the odds that the nonexposed group has the disease The results of a hypothetical study found an association between ASA intake and risk of heart disease. How do you interpret an OR of 1.5? Correct Answer: In patients who took ASA, the odds of acquiring heart disease were 1.5 times those of patients who did not take ASA In which patients do you initiate colorectal cancer screening early?

Correct Answer: Number of deaths during pregnancy to 90 days postpartum per 100,000 live births in 1 year True or false: once patients sign a statement giving consent they must continue treatment Correct Answer: False.
