(1/1443) Ten year follow-up of depression after diagnosis in general practice.

BACKGROUND: Depression is a serious illness with a high recurrence rate, mortality, and suicide rate, and a substantial loss of quality of life. Long-term course of depression, in particular of patients not referred to specialist care, is not completely clear. We performed a study in which the course of depression in general practice was studied for 10 years after the first diagnosis. AIM: To learn more about long-term course and outcome of patients with depressive illness for a full 10 years after diagnosis. METHOD: A historic cohort study with 386 patients classified as depressive before January 1984, recruited from four general practices belonging to the Continuous Morbidity Registry of the University of Nijmegen in The Netherlands. This cohort was followed up for 10 years. Mortality was compared with a control group matched for age, sex, social class, and practice. Of 222 patients out of this cohort who could be followed up for a full 10 years after diagnosis, the case records were studied in detail. RESULTS: No statistically significant difference was found in mortality between the 386 patients and the control group. Recurrence of depressive episodes did not occur in about 60% of the 222 patients (confidence interval 54% to 67%). Of the depressive patients, 15% were referred to secondary care and 9% were admitted to hospital. CONCLUSION: Mortality, suicide, and recurrence rate were lower than expected, taking into account what is known from depression studies in psychiatry. These results stress the importance of long-term prospective follow-up studies of all patients with depression because of the emphasis on case-finding and treatment without exact knowledge of long-term course and outcome of patients who were not referred.  (+info)

(2/1443) A decade of caring for drug users entirely within general practice.

BACKGROUND: The government encourages general practitioners (GPs) to become involved in caring for drug users. However, in some areas of the country, including Bedford, secondary care support is inadequate. GPs in these areas have to decide how to cope with such patients entirely within general practice. AIM: To assess the characteristics and quality of care given without secondary care support to drug users by one practice in Bedford over a decade. METHOD: A search was made of the practice computer for all patients with a problem title of 'addiction drug' between 1986 and 1995. The age, sex, social characteristics, and drug history were recorded. RESULTS: One hundred and ninety-two patients were found, of which 155 took part in the practice programme; i.e. they consulted more than three times. Forty-three patients (37%) who took part and were prescribed Methadone were prescribed this drug as ampoules. Sixty-three patients (40.6%) who took part in the programme stopped using drugs. Thirty-two (33.6%) of the Methadone users became abstinent. A higher proportion of women (13-48%) than men (19-27.7%) stopped using Methadone (P = 0.019). Among patients who had a stable lifestyle, a higher proportion had been prescribed ampoules than mixture (22 out of 28: 78.6%; P = 0.001). Similarly, of those who had a job, eight out of 11 (72%; P = 0.037) had been prescribed methadone ampoules. Two-thirds of all patients prescribed amphetamines stopped using drugs. CONCLUSION: Long-term care of drug users entirely within general practice is feasible. Among those prescribed methadone ampoules, a higher than average proportion had stable lifestyles and had a stable job.  (+info)

(3/1443) The changing elderly population and future health care needs.

The impending growth of the elderly population requires both fiscal and substantive changes in Medicare and Medicaid that are responsive to cost issues and to changing patterns of need. More emphasis is required on chronic disease management, on meaningful integration between acute and long-term care services, and on improved coordination between Medicare and Medicaid initiatives. This paper reviews various trends, including the growth in managed-care approaches, experience with social health maintenance organizations and Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly demonstrations, and the need for a coherent long-term care policy. Such policies, however, transcend health care and require a broad range of community initiatives.  (+info)

(4/1443) Changes in behavioural characteristics of elderly populations of local authority homes and long-stay hospital wards, 1976-7.

Behavioural characteristics of the elderly populations of seven local authority residential homes and three long-stay hospital wards were assessed in 1976 and 1977 with the Crichton Royal behavioural rating scale. In 1977 the levels of behavioural problems had increased in the residential homes, but declined in the hospital wards. Differences between the homes had decreased as the overall level of problems increased. The findings suggested that the additional burden of caring for increasing numbers of severely disabled elderly people was affecting the balance of institutional care, and a radical reappraisal of present patterns of care may be necessary to meet their future needs.  (+info)

(5/1443) Admission and adjustment of residents in homes for the elderly.

This paper discusses the relationship between psychological variables, a brief cognitive measure and a behavioural rating scale, and the subsequent adjustment of a group of elderly people newly admitted to a social services home for the elderly. It shows that, in this sample, three groups can be identified: a fairly independent group of people who show no apparent deterioration in functioning during the first year of admission; a more dependent group who show loss of functioning during the same period; and a third group who show an immediate negative effect from admission, and who have a poor outcome. We comment on the lack of evidence in support of a general negative relocation effect, and on the value of the procedures used.  (+info)

(6/1443) Patients' satisfaction with care after stroke: relation with characteristics of patients and care.

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate stroke patients' satisfaction with care received and to identify characteristics of patients and care which are associated with patients' dissatisfaction. DESIGN: Cross sectional study. SETTING: Sample of patients who participated in a multicentre study on quality of care in 23 hospitals in the Netherlands. PATIENTS: 327 non-institutionalised patients who had been in hospital six months before because of stroke. MAIN MEASURES: Data were collected on (a) characteristics of patients: socio-demographic status, cognitive function (mini mental state examination), disability (Barthel index), handicap (Rankin scale), emotional distress (emotional behavior subscale of the sickness impact profile) and health perception; (b) characteristics of care: use of various types of formal care after stroke, unmet care demands perceived by patients, unmet care demands confirmed by their general practitioners, continuity of care, and secondary prevention, and (c) patients' satisfaction with care received. RESULTS: 40% of the study sample were dissatisfied with at least one type of care received. Multivariate analyses showed that unmet care demands perceived by patients (odds ratio (OR) 3.2, 95% confidence interval (95% CI) 1.8-5.7) and emotional distress (OR 1.8, 95% CI 1.1-3.0) were the main variable associated with dissatisfaction. CONCLUSIONS: Patients' satisfaction was primarily associated with emotional distress and unmet care demands perceived by patients. No association was found between patients' satisfaction on the one hand and continuity of care or secondary prevention on the other; two care characteristics that are broadly accepted by professional care givers as important indicators of quality of long term care after stroke. IMPLICATIONS: In view of these findings discussion should take place about the relative weight that should be given to patients' satisfaction as an indicator of quality of care, compared with other quality indicators such as continuity of care and technical competence. More research is needed to find which dimensions of quality care are considered the most important by stroke patients and professional care givers.  (+info)

(7/1443) Long-term effect of treatment of female incontinence in general practice.

BACKGROUND: Urinary incontinence in women can be treated successfully by the general practitioner. However, little is known about the long-term effects of conservative treatment. AIM: To evaluate the long-term effect of treatment of female incontinence by the general practitioner (pelvic floor exercises, and bladder training) in female urinary incontinence. METHOD: A total of 88 women, aged between 20 and 65, who had participated in a controlled trial between 1987 and 1990, were contacted to participate in a five-year follow-up study. Stress incontinence and urge incontinence were treated by means of pelvic floor exercises and bladder training respectively, while a mixed incontinence was treated by bladder training followed by pelvic floor exercises. The outcome measures were a constructed scale for the severity of the incontinence, a seven-day bladder chart, and a questionnaire concerning patients' opinions. All patients were evaluated by an independent researcher. RESULTS: Compared with the one-year follow-up, the number of continent women remained the same, but a significantly greater number of patients worsened. Forty per cent of the women stayed in the same category of severity, while 45% moved into the contiguous categories. The weekly frequency of wet episodes increased significantly, with a mean increase of 2.65 episodes. Women with mixed incontinence were especially prone to relapse in the long-term. Compliance with the exercises had a positive influence on the outcomes, with 67% of the women expressing satisfaction with the results. CONCLUSIONS: Despite a decline in the effect of conservative treatment in the long-term, the majority of the women are satisfied with their treatment. Patient compliance is the key to long-term success.  (+info)

What does a long term care pharmacist do?


  • I'm interested in learning more about what a pharmacist does in a long-term care pharmacy. There is a potential job opportunity for me in this area. Can anyone who is in the field offer me some insight? As far as what the job entails, pros and cons versus hospital or retail pharmacy? Thanks.
  • You provide the meds for the people in the long-term care facility only. Whereas in a hospital and retail, you serve different people all the time, you will not in the facility. In a retail pharmacy you will have opportunity to make personal contact with the customers, you do not have that opportunity really either in the hospital or the facility. It depends on if you are a people person or not.


What are the two challenging issues for Long Term Care. Discuss each including how you think the issue should?


  • What are the two challenging issues for Long Term Care. Discuss each including how you think the issue should be handled. can you give rationale.
  • 1. Financing: Long term care is frightfully expensive. Most people cannot afford prolonged care as it is in excess of $300 per day. Once a patient's resources are exhausted, the government has to step in and pay for the care. There is insufficient money to pay for the level of care that is needed. Unless the government moves to socialized medicine, many people will not receive the level of care that they need. 2. End of Life Issues: At what point are medical interventions withdrawn? Who makes that decision if the patient is unable either physically or mentally to do so? These are only two issues. Hope it helps.


How much money is spend each year on long term care for patients with an incurable disease?


  • I'm pro euthanasia and one of my points is that long term care, as opposed to euthanasia, costs a LOT of money. can anyone please find a stat for me that proves that statement? thanks!
  • Madre has given accurate figures so I am just adding my opinion. I know that everyone wants care but they do NOT want to pay. So when it comes to grown children paying for their parents to linger on and making themselves broke when that money should be used for their own childrens education; I feel that it is immoral. To pay for nursing care for terminal illness using money that is needed for childrens upbringing is wrong. I would not want my children to keep me alive at their expense, nor would I want taxpayers to do it. Natural is best and many cultures have better ways.


How would I orientate an 85 year old man with dementia into a long term care facility?

Does anyone know any good facilities that have good long term care to help recovering cutters?


  • I have been cutting for about 5 years now... and I know I have to tell my parents, but first I want to find a mental hospital that has a good rating for long term care for self-injurers and other addictions... Please I really need help, and I don't want my parents to argue about it, so If I set up hospitalization before I tell them then, they won't have time to argue about it with me... Please help... Thank you.... P.S. No nonsense!
  • the first step to recovery is being able to acknowledge that your problem needs addressing... i really admire you for wanting to do the right thing and seek help.. it can be so hard to admit that you are in need of professional help but believe me...there is no shame in it... you'd be suprised how many people suffer from mental illnesses but some can conceal it extremely well.. cutting yourself is quite common and like OCD it seems to relieve people there their stresses and compulsions... all i can say is consult your doctor and tell him everything..you have to tell him to the true extent of your physical harming and explain that you may feel suicidal..(i read your other post) doctors can be really flippant but if you tell them how you really feel and say you want 2 be referred to a psychologist... they can really help...talking can do so much you are not alone in this world...there are so many people that suffer in silence which is worse as bottling these actions can have disastrous consquences... however NOTHING is ever too big...as much as it may seem...nothing is ever too late and nothing is ever unchangeable.. i know it may seem like the world is a dull and malicious place but with the right help...you can change your life i know i say this, but im also depressed at the moment... but as people say, its easier to address peoples problems than fix your own! i hope you get better mate, have faith, there is nothing you cannot do! if u wanna chat contact me.. all the best


How much does the US Health care spend on Acute Care, Long term care?


  • I am working on a problem and I cannot find the percentage of US health dollars spent on acute care vs long term care. I searched a ton of websites but no use. Hope you could point in the right direction

Family member in need of long term assisted living care?

We believe what he would need it assisted living. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
