Sawaya and colleagues performed this cost-effectiveness analysis to estimate the quality of life and economic outcomes associated with 12 cervical cancer screening strategies among women aged 21 to 65 years. Results showed that cytologic testing every 3 years for women aged 21 to 29 years with either continued triennial cytologic testing or switching to a low-cost, high-risk human papillomavirus test every 5 years from age 30 to 65 years conferred a reasonable balance of benefits, harms, and costs from both a societal and health care sector perspective.

Author Audio Interview

In this cross-sectional study of 3157 US Chinese community-dwelling older adults, Dong and Wang examined the associations of child maltreatment and intimate partner violence with elder abuse. Participants were interviewed by multilingual research assistants in face-to-face and private context, and data were collected using a custom-built, web-based software. Results demonstrated that individuals with a history of child maltreatment had 2 times higher odds of experiencing intimate partner violence and elder abuse, and those who had experienced intimate partner violence had 6 times higher odds of experiencing elder abuse. Koenen and colleagues provide the Invited Commentary.
