Relationships between various attitudes towards self-determination in health care with special reference to an advance directive. (1/4015)

OBJECTIVES: The subject of patient self-determination in health care has gained broad interest because of the increasing number of incompetent patients. In an attempt to solve the problems related to doctors' decision making in such circumstances, advance directives have been developed. The purpose of this study was to examine relationships between public attitudes towards patient autonomy and advance directives. SUBJECTS AND MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: A stratified random sample of 600 adults in northern Sweden was surveyed by a questionnaire with a response rate of 78.2%. The subjects were asked about their wish for control of their health care, their concerns about health care, their treatment preferences in a life-threatening situation (both reversible and irreversible), and their attitudes towards the application of advance directives. RESULTS: Numerous relationships between various aspects of self-determination in health care (desire for control, fears of over-treatment, and choice of treatment level) in general and advance directives, in particular, were found. Those who wanted to have a say in their health care (about 94%) also mainly supported the use of an advance directive. CONCLUSIONS: The fact that almost 30% of the respondents were undecided concerning their personal use of advance directives points to a lack of knowledge and to the necessity of education of the public on these issues.  (+info)

Women patients' preferences for female or male GPs. (2/4015)

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to investigate general preferences to see a male or female GP either some or all of the time, and specific preferences to see a female primary health care (PHC) worker for individual health issues; to compare these preferences with reported consultation behaviour; and to explore women's evaluations of the quality of PHC services in relation to their preferences and consultation behaviour. METHOD: Results are reported on 881 women aged 16-65 years who had consulted their GP in the previous 6 months. Logistical regression analysis was undertaken to evaluate whether a general preference to see another woman is more important than specific women's health issues in determining why some women regularly choose to consult a female GP. RESULTS: General preference was 2.6 times more important than specific health issues in predicting choice of a female GP in a mixed-sex practice. Nearly a half (49.1 %) of women attending male-only practices stated that they wanted to see a female GP in at least some circumstances, compared with 63.8% of women in mixed-sex practices. In total, 65.5% of the sample stated that there was at least one specific health issue for which they would only want to be seen by a woman PHC worker. The most positive evaluations of the quality of GP services were made by women normally seeing a male GP in mixed-sex practices and the least positive evaluations were given by women in male-only GP practices CONCLUSIONS: In order to meet women's expressed preferences, every GP practice should have at least one female GP available at least some of the time and every GP practice should employ a female PHC worker.  (+info)

Why are workers uninsured? Employer-sponsored health insurance in 1997. (3/4015)

This study examines the number of workers in firms offering employee health plans, the number of workers eligible for such plans, and participation in employer-sponsored insurance. Data from the February 1997 Contingent Worker Supplement to the Current Population Survey indicate that 10.1 million workers are employed by firms offering insurance but are not eligible. Not all of these workers are eligible for coverage, most often because of hours of work. Our results indicate that 11.4 million workers rejected coverage when it was offered. Of those, 2.5 million workers were uninsured. Workers cited high cost of insurance most often as the primary factor for refusing coverage.  (+info)

Selection for oesophagectomy and postoperative outcome in a defined population. (4/4015)

OBJECTIVE: To measure the extent of use of, and perioperative mortality from, oesophagectomy for carcinoma of the oesophagus, and to examine the association between oesophagectomy and long term survival. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study of cases of oesophageal carcinoma notified to the Thames Cancer Registry. SETTING: South East Thames and South West Thames health regions. PATIENTS: 3273 patients first registered with carcinoma of the oesophagus during 1985-9, 789 of whom were excluded because of incomplete data, leaving 2484 (75.9%) for further analysis. MAIN MEASURES: Treatment of oesophagectomy, mortality within 30 days of oesophagectomy, and duration of survival from date of diagnosis to death, according to patient and tumour characteristics. RESULTS: Oesophagectomy was performed in 571(23.0%) patients. Its use decreased with increasing age (odds ratio (95% confidence interval) 0.935(0.925 to 0.944) per year) and was less common for tumours of the middle or upper third of the oesophagus than the lower third (0.56(0.42 to 0.75)). The proportion of patients undergoing oesophagectomy varied threefold among the 28 districts of residence. The perioperative mortality rate was 15.1(86/571) (12% to 18%); it increased with age (odds ratio 1.05(1.02 to 1.08) per year) and for tumours of the middle or upper third of the oesophagus compared with the lower third (2.52(1.31 to 4.84)). Long term survival was slightly higher for patients undergoing oesophagectomy (0.5% v 0.2%). CONCLUSIONS: Despite a high perioperative mortality rate patients selected for oesophagectomy showed better long term survival than those who were not, suggesting that clinical judgements used in selection were independent markers of a better prognosis. The nature of this selection needs to be more completely characterised to permit a valid evaluation of outcome of oesophagectomy.  (+info)

Choice and accountability in health promotion: the role of health economics. (5/4015)

Choices need to be made between competing uses of health care resources. There is debate about how these choices should be made, who should make them and the criteria upon which they should be made. Evaluation of health care is an important part of this debate. It has been suggested that the contribution of health economics to the evaluation of health promotion is limited, both because the methods and principles underlying economic evaluation are unsuited to health promotion, and because the political and cultural processes governing the health care system are more appropriate mechanisms for allocating health care resources than systematic economic analysis of the costs and benefits of different health care choices. This view misrepresents and misunderstands the contribution of health economics to the evaluation of health promotion. It overstates the undoubted methodological difficulties of evaluating health promotion. It also argues, mistakenly, that economists see economic evaluation as a substitute for the political and cultural processes governing health care, rather than an input to them. This paper argues for an economics input on grounds of efficiency, accountability and ethics, and challenges the critics of the economic approach to judge alternative mechanisms for allocating resources by the same criteria.  (+info)

Medicare HMOs: who joins and who leaves? (6/4015)

Medicare risk health maintenance organizations (HMOs) are an increasingly common alternative to fee-for-service Medicare. To date, there has been no examination of whether the HMO program is preferentially used by blacks or by persons living in lower-income areas or whether race and income are associated with reversing Medicare HMO selection. This question is important because evidence suggests that these beneficiaries receive poorer care under the fee-for-service-system than do whites and persons from wealthier areas. Medicare enrollment data from South Florida were examined for 1990 to 1993. Four overlapping groups of enrollees were examined: all age-eligible (age 65 and over) beneficiaries in 1990; all age-eligible beneficiaries in 1993; all age-eligible beneficiaries residing in South Florida during the period 1990 to 1993; and all beneficiaries who became age-eligible for Medicare benefits between 1990 and 1993. The associations between race or income and choice of Medicare option were examined by logistic regression. The association between the demographic characteristics and time staying with a particular option was examined with Kaplan-Meier methods and Cox Proportional Hazards modeling. Enrollment in Medicare risk HMOs steadily increased over the 4-year study period. In the overall Medicare population, the following statistically significant patterns of enrollment in Medicare HMOs were seen: enrollment of blacks was two times higher than that of non-blacks; enrollment decreased with age; and enrollment decreased as income level increased. For the newly eligible population, initial selection of Medicare option was strongly linked to income; race effects were weak but statistically significant. The data for disenrollment from an HMO revealed a similar demographic pattern. At 6 months, higher percentages of blacks, older beneficiaries (older than 85), and individuals from the lowest income area (less than $15,000 per year) had disenrolled. A small percentage of beneficiaries moved between HMOs and FFS plans multiple times. These data on Medicare HMO populations in South Florida, an area with a high concentration of elderly individuals and with one of the highest HMO enrollment rates in the country, indicate that enrollment into and disenrollment from Medicare risk HMOs are associated with certain demographic characteristics, specifically, black race or residence in a low-income area.  (+info)

Determinants of patient choice of medical provider: a case study in rural China. (7/4015)

This study examines the factors that influence patient choice of medical provider in the three-tier health care system in rural China: village health posts, township health centres, and county (and higher level) hospitals. The model is estimated using a multinomial logit approach applied to a sample of 1877 cases of outpatient treatment from a household survey in Shunyi county of Beijing in 1993. This represents the first effort to identify and quantify the impact of individual factors on patient choice of provider in China. The results show that relative to self-pay patients, Government and Labour Health Insurance beneficiaries are more likely to use county hospitals, while patients covered by the rural Cooperative Medical System (CMS) are more likely to use village-level facilities. In addition, high-income patients are more likely to visit county hospitals than low-income patients. The results also reveal that disease patterns have a significant impact on patient choice of provider, implying that the ongoing process of health transition will lead people to use the higher quality services offered at the county hospitals. We discuss the implications of the results for organizing health care finance and delivery in rural China to achieve efficiency and equity.  (+info)

Contraceptive needs of women attending a genitourinary medicine clinic for the first time. (8/4015)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the need for, and potential uptake of, a contraceptive service within a genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinic. METHODS: 544 women, median age 17 years (range 13-54) including 142 teenagers, attending the Fife GUM clinics serving a semirural population of 350,000 for the first time in the 12 month period from 1 September 1995 to 31 August 1996 were interviewed. RESULTS: Contraception was required by 353, of whom only 5% (29) were at risk of unplanned pregnancy, although half (15) of these were teenagers. 23 of 29 (79%) stated that they would access contraception at a GUM clinic if it were available. Of women using contraception, 67% (217/324) were taking the oral contraceptive pill (OCP), of whom 177 obtained supplies from their general practitioners and were happy with this. However, 92/177 (52%) stated that they would access the OCP at GUM clinics if it were available. Overall, of the 243 women who stated that they would access contraception at the GUM clinic, 23 of whom were currently at risk of an unplanned pregnancy, the demand was principally for condoms and the OCP. CONCLUSION: The majority of women attending GUM clinics for the first time are using contraception, or have deliberately chosen not to do so. Only 5% were at risk of unplanned pregnancy. In general, the women using contraception were happy with their current source of contraception, but about two thirds would use a contraceptive service at GUM clinics if it were available at the time they were attending the clinic. It was found that teenagers accounted for half of those women at risk of unwanted pregnancy. However, the majority of teenagers requiring contraception would consider obtaining it from GUM clinics.  (+info)

Background: The availability and use of health apps continues to increase, revolutionizing the way mobile health interventions are delivered. Apps are increasingly used to prevent disease, improve well-being, and promote healthy behavior. On a similar rise is the incidence of skin cancers. Much of the underlying risk can be prevented through behavior change and adequate sun protection. Self-monitoring apps have the potential to facilitate prevention by measuring risk (eg, sun intensity) and encouraging protective behavior (eg, seeking shade). Objective: Our aim was to assess health care consumer preferences for sun protection with a self-monitoring app that tracks the duration and intensity of sun exposure and provides feedback on when and how to protect the skin. Methods: We conducted an unlabeled discrete choice experiment with 8 unique choice tasks, in which participants chose among 2 app alternatives, consisting of 5 preidentified 2-level attributes (self-monitoring method, privacy control, data

It is rare (∼1% diabetes) and may be misdiagnosed as Type 1 diabetes and inappropriately treated with insulin. Type 1 diabetes is characterized by the presence of islet autoantibodies, including glutamate decarboxylase (GAD) and islet antigen-2 (IA-2) antibodies. The prevalence of islet autoantibodies is unknown in maturity-onset diabetes of the young and may have the potential to differentiate this form of diabetes from Type 1 diabetes. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of GAD and IA-2 antibodies in patients with maturity-onset diabetes of the young and Type 1 diabetes. Methods We measured plasma GAD and IA-2 antibodies in 508 patients with the most ...
An as-needed combination preventer and reliever regimen was recently introduced as an alternative to conventional daily preventer treatment for mild asthma. In a subgroup analysis of the PRACTICAL study, a pragmatic randomised controlled trial of budesonide-formoterol reliever therapy versus maintenance budesonide plus terbutaline reliever therapy in adults with mild asthma, we recently reported that about two-thirds preferred as-needed combination preventer and reliever therapy. The aim of this study was to determine the relative importance of attributes associated with these two asthma therapies in this subgroup of participants who indicated their preferred treatment in the PRACTICAL study.At their final study visit, a subgroup of participants indicated their preferred treatment and completed a discrete choice experiment using the Potentially All Pairwise RanKings of all possible Alternatives method and 1000minds software. Treatment attributes and their levels were selected from measurable ...
Abstract: In this paper we derive locally optimal designs for discrete choice experiments. As in Kanninen (2002) we consider a multinomial logistic model, which contains various ualitative attributes as well as a quantitative one, which may range over a sufficiently large region. The derived optimal designs improve upon those given in the literature, but have the feature that every choice set contains alternatives, which coincide in all but the quantitative attributes. The multinomial logistic model may then lead to an unrealistic response behavior, if the quantitative attribute is described by a price variable.. Keywords: conjoint analysis, discrete choice experiment, multinomial logistic model, locally optimal design. ...

Universal coverage campaigns for long-lasting insecticide-treated nets do not always reach the goal of one net for every two household members, and even when ownership of at least one net per household is high, many households may not own enough nets. The retail market provides these households options for replacing or increasing the number of nets they own with products that best fit their needs since a variety of net shapes, sizes, and colours are available. Hence, it is important to understand the factors affecting private net demand. This study explores private demand for nets in Tanzania using a discrete choice experiment. The experiment provides participants the option to buy nets with their own money, and thus should prove more accurate than a hypothetical survey of net preferences. Nearly 800 participants sampled in two regions showed an overall strong demand for nets, with 40% choosing to buy a net across all seven combinations of net prices and characteristics such as size, shape, and

Based on examination of variation of practice patterns in the Dartmouth Atlas, John Wennberg, M.D. has suggested three general approaches to reduce inappropriate variation and increase the equity of medical care: increase the amount of effective care, reduce supply sensitive care and increase preference sensitive care [32]. The underuse of DMARDs by patients with RA, is an example of underutilization of effective care. This may be explained by healthcare system failures, individual physician behavior, or in some cases subsets of patients who are informed but elect not to take medications recommended in national standards of care. A recent computer based, simulated decision, discrete choice experiment of 144 RA patients preferences of specific risks and benefits of treatment found that when compared to white adults with RA, African American RA patients were more likely to be classified as risk averse (OR 8.4 [3.1-23.1]) [33]. In general, it is unknown if risk aversion is an inherent culturally ...
What do patients want? Llewellyn5 and Miners6 report linked studies exploring patient preferences for STI services in the UK, in the context of increased provision of such services in primary care over the past decade. Llewellyn et al report that while many participants were willing to test within general practice, perceived lack of expertise was a barrier as was the apparently limited range of tests in general practise. A discrete choice experiment presented by Miners again emphasised patients preference for staff with specialist knowledge, and for the availability of testing for all infections. These are important messages for policymakers.. Patient views are also explored a study by Conway et al,7 who describe quality of life valuations for HPV associated cancer health states. The authors explored valuations of various genital cancers, as well as oropharyngeal cancer.

The participants will be interviewed in a face-to-face setting using computer-assisted personal interviewing technique. We will be using EuroQol Groups Valuation Technology (EQ-VT) software generated by the EuroQol Group. Each respondent will be asked to complete sociodemographic details and self-reported health questionnaire using EQ-5D-5L and the EuroQol Visual Analogue Scale (EQ-VAS). TTO valuation will be done using 10 composite TTO (c-TTO) tasks and 7 discrete choice experiment (DCE) tasks.. In the standard design of c-TTO, there will be 10 blocks of health states. Each block will contain 10 health states which include one anchor state (55555). The blocks used for interview will be randomly selected by the EQ-VT software. In TTO valuation, the respondent is asked to indicate the amount of time he/she is willing to give up to attain perfect health. The respondent will be asked to imagine two alternative health states (life A and life B) described on screen and express the preference using ...
Downloadable (with restrictions)! Increasingly, health economists are required to work across sectors when evaluating options for improving health, health care and well-being. Social care is a key sector which is both influenced by and influences the use and outcomes of health services. This paper reports on a developing approach to measuring social care outcome, designed to reflect outcomes across client groups. In this process it is important that we reflect the relative importance or value of these domains of outcome. This paper reports on a pilot study that investigated the feasibility of using discrete choice experiments to identify a financial willingness to accept valuation of a large number of domains and investigated factors associated with variations in respondents preferences. We conclude that, while the domains themselves need further work, the approach provides a helpful starting point in the difficult issue of reflecting population preferences for a large number of social care outcome
There are two salient facts about health care in low and middle-income countries; 1) the private sector plays an important role and 2) the care provided is often of poor quality. Despite these facts we know little about what drives quality of care in the private sector and why patients continue to seek care from poor quality providers. We use two field studies in India that provide unique insight into this issue. First, we use a discrete choice experiment to show that patients are willing to pay higher prices for better technical quality (defined by correct treatment and correct diagnosis). Second, we use standardized patients to show that private providers who provide better technical quality are not able to charge higher prices. Instead providers are able to charge higher prices for elements of quality that the patient can observe (good patient interactions and more effort), which are less important for health outcomes. Taken together, this research highlights a market inefficiency and ...

Usually KEY1= is a character string of correct response choices. The standard is one column per correct response, or two columns if XWIDE=2.. As standard, responses matching the characters in KEY1= are scored 1. Other valid responses are scored 0. KEY2= through KEY99= are character strings of successively more correct response choices to be used when more than one level of correct response choice is possible for one or more items. The standard score value for KEY2= is 2, and so on up to the standard score value for KEY99= which is 99. The values assigned to these keys can be changed by means of KEYSCR=. If XWIDE=1, only the values assigned to KEY1= through KEY9= can be changed, KEY10= through KEY99= retain their standard values of 10 through 99. If XWIDE=2, the all KEYn= values can be changed.. More complicated scoring can be done ...
Almost one half (49%) of co-ed state-funded schools across England are strengthening gender imbalances in terms of subject choice while fewer than one in five (19%) are countering them.
Some of the highly controversial questions in macroeconomics critically hinge on the value of a single parameter of consumer preference--the elasticity of intertemporal substitution. This paper provides new estimates of this parameter for individual G-7 and a panel of twenty OECD countries. We find that single equation GMM estimates are typically small and imprecise, consistent with Halls (1988) finding from the U.S. data. Estimation of a system of equations that takes into account the cross-equation restrictions implied by theory, however, generally gives larger and better determined values for the parameter. The panel procedure also yields relatively large estimates. Overall our multi-country results contradict the hypothesis of zero intertemporal substitution.
A dynamic risk-sensitive portfolio optimization problem under risk constraints is discussed by the use of coherent risk measures and fuzzy random variables
The neural mechanisms underlying the selection and initiation of voluntary actions in the absence of external instructions are poorly understood. These mechanisms are usually investigated using a paradigm where different movement choices are self-generated by a participant on each trial. These free choices are compared with instructed choices, in which a stimulus informs subjects which action to make on each trial. Here, we introduce a novel paradigm to investigate these modes of action selection, by measuring brain processes evoked by an instruction to either reverse or maintain free and instructed choices in the period before a go signal. An unpredictable instruction to change a response plan had different effects on free and instructed choices. In instructed trials, change cues evoked a larger P300 than no-change cues, leading to a significant interaction of choice and change condition. Free-choice trials displayed a trend toward the opposite pattern. These results suggest a difference between
Prolonged waiting times for elective treatment have long been considered a serious problem of the Norwegian health care system. Overall waiting times have, due to both supply and demand reforms, dropped significantly over recent years. Despite the positive development, many patients still face substantial waiting times. The analysis provides support for claiming that a policy of combining patient choice of hospital with the removal of geographical restrictions on referrals may contribute to the reduction in waiting times for individual elective patients. The main results of the empirical analyses were found to be robust over different statistical model specifications. Patients who chose to move hospitals benefit the most. They spend about 11 weeks less, on average, waiting for hospital treatment than those who neither chose nor moved. The results corroborate with the results of a few previous empirical analyses, like The London Patient Choice Project. There, a reduction in waiting times for all ...
This article reexamines evidence that some 5O% of disposable income goes to households who simply consume their current incomes. Previous studies of such rule-of-thumb behavior have typically used log-linear Euler equations and have not distinguished between intertemporal substitution and relative risk aversion. In contrast, I use generalized method of moments to estimate the importance of rule-of-thumb behavior and separate intertemporal substitution from risk aversion by using the Epstein-Zin utility function. Using postwar U.S. data, I cannot reject the hypothesis that all income goes to permanent-income households--that is, that there are no rule-of-thumb households.
One of these is precisely what explained binary choices are. Binary alternate options bring a very high amount of hazards when it comes to predicting the expense of a house at a supplied element in time. Binary alternate options are merely two in general: the money-or-nothing choice as well as the tool-or-absolutely nothing choice. The entire year 2008 was actually a modifying aspect in the background of repaired profit possibilities. Undoubtedly from that time binary selections online-web sites showed up as well as auctioned directly into step up change-dealt all-or-absolutely nothing choices. This development was quick since it was within the mindset from the Securities and also Exchange Commission (SEC)s selection to allow the list of income-or-practically nothing set up comes back selections. This was a result of the proposal in the Options Eradicating Business in 2007 to include binary choices in its regulations.. Complying with all the SECs phase the Us Offer Change journeyed full span ...
Gerber, Eberhart and Andrea entered a small, dark room in which a row of chairs faced a large one-way glass which made up most of the rooms far wall. On the other side of this glass was a much larger room, a well-lit chamber containing a variety of high-tech apparatus and controls, most of which Andrea could not identify. Without a word, she and the two men sat down. They all knew what this place was for; there was no need for discussion. Andrea recognized Nina immediately. She had been restrained on a five foot wide, eight foot long metal table that was surrounded by the strange array of equipment. The top of the table had been tilted up forty-five degrees, leaving Nina neither lying flat nor standing, but positioned so as to give the three observers an optimal view of the proceedings. Ninas body lay spread-eagle and face up, her limbs pulled wide apart and stretched to their limits. Manacles welded to the table secured her wrists and ankles, completely immobilizing her. Nina was naked of ...
Probability and statistics are not dependent on an individuals choice. Its dependent on the population. The population in this case would be the cars that drive on that stretch of highway. This determines the probability of getting into an accident. So an individuals can choose whether to drive on the highway or do things like wear a seat belt or drive at a certain speed. The probability of an accident occurring isnt the function of individual choice but of the population or the event thats occurring. This illustrates free will beautifully which reaches down to Planck scales. So probability isnt interfered with because its a function of the population. If 50% of the cars stopped driving on that highway that wouldnt interfere with probability that would just change the statistics because theres a decrease in the population for the event ...
The video is fallacious and disingenuous. The two concepts, parable of the lost sheep and parable of the caravan presented in the video are not in any way contradictory. People will choose to leave Christs Church, and the proverbial predators will devour them. Is the video trying to suggest that members of the church can force people not to leave? Its all metaphorical and individual choice is just that, individual choice. As somebody who has spent many, many hours going out and inviting the proverbial lost sheep back and being told to pound sand time and time again. Approaching the people who are about to be devoured metaphorically when they leave the caravan and warning them not to go and again being told to mind my own business. And watching as they still choose to do so. Is the person in the video suggesting that I am not Christlike simply because the caravan parable actually does happen and plays out in real life. That because people do leave the caravan and fall into apostasy or in ...

Consistent with the results of the Bechara study, our subjects gradually concentrated their choices on deck B (Fig. 2). The beginning phase of the task was an exploratory period in which both populations sampled each deck equally. For the next 20 draws subjects shifted towards deck B drawing on average 8 of the 20 cards from deck A. In the final 10 draws both groups largely abandoned deck A: on average the younger subjects chose deck A two times of 10 and the older subjects chose deck A three times of 10. In summary both populations appear to have adapted the same way to the payoffs.... ...

There also exist problems with the studys design (given the conclusions of the media). Since participants were automatically supplied with drugs on sample days, we cannot make any solid deductions about whether the same results would be garnered in periods of abstinence. Also, given that many of the participants may have been occasional users, a hit of meth every few days may have been ample, meaning the only real option to go for would have been money anyway. This also means that the employed strategy of many may have been to sequester funds for purchase of drugs after the experiment was over. However, this is unlikely to have been the case - at least if the plan was to spend the monetary rewards on meth. The values of the drug and monetary rewards over the course of the study were well matched ($60-$80 and $100, respectively), and given the average dose of meth (250mg) will set you back around $80 on the streets of New York (the studys location), the participants would receive the same ...

This was also shown to be the case for the multinomial logit model. Thus, for the conditional and multinomial logit models, the ratio of probabilities of any two alternatives is necessarily the same regardless of what other alternatives are in the choice set or what the characteristics of the other alternatives are. This is referred to as the IIA property. The IIA property is useful from the point of view of estimation and forecasting. For example, it allows the prediction of demand for currently unavailable alternatives. If the IIA property is appropriate for the choice situation being considered, then estimation can be based on the set of currently available alternatives and then the estimated model can be used to calculate the probability that an individual would choose a new alternative not considered in the estimation procedure. However, the IIA property is restrictive from the point of view of choice behavior. Models that display the IIA property predict that a change in the attributes of ...
The candidates will then be called according to the session rank before the terminal for counselling. The candidates can now choose a seat from the available seats. They can make three choices. Based upon the session rank, choices will be confirmed. The candidates are encouraged to have at least a list of 5-10 choices either college wise or branch of study wise. The choice may be made by visiting the particular college and getting feedback from the faculty and students of the respective preferred college. Moreover, those choices may become unavailable on the respective candidates counselling day due to some other higher ranked candidate opting for it. Therefore, the candidate has to keep track of the availability, posted on the TNEA website after every counselling session. Even on the day of counselling, the choices of a particular candidate may not be available, in which case, the candidate may track and re-prioritise his choices by monitoring the LIVE displays at the TNEA venue ...
We all have busy lives, and as such sometimes spend too much time resting. The truth is the choices we make and the time we spend sedentary is literally killing us - and our children.
Background/Rationale: It is important that individuals with serious mental illness have access to treatments that meet their preferences, and that they make informed choices among alternative treatments. Too often, preferences are not being routinely elicited, nor used to guide which treatments are made available. Schizophrenia is a serious mental illness that is common and produces substantial disability when poorly treated. National treatment guidelines specify that individuals with schizophrenia should receive evidence-based treatments that improve outcomes. For example, obesity is a pressing problem in this population, a side-effect of commonly used medications, and a cause of cardiovascular disease and premature mortality. There are multiple, different psychosocial interventions for weight management that can lead to reduced weight. None are widely used. If individuals preferences were routinely assessed, then clinicians and managers would know when to make alternative treatments ...
Results Respondents expressed preferences for improvements on all programme characteristics. They were willing to give up 0.09 (95% CI 0.08 to 0.09) lives saved per 1000 screened to avoid one individual being over treated. Similarly, respondents were willing to give up 1.22 (95% CI 0.90 to 1.55) or 5.21 (95% CI 4.78 to 5.67) lives saved per 1000 screened to upgrade the location from general practice to a hospital or to a high-tech hospital, respectively. Subgroup analysis revealed important preference heterogeneity with respect to smoking status, level of health literacy and self-perceived risk of cardiovascular disease. ...
My question is...How long did the patient wait with this fever before seeking medical attention? Was this fever of 106 in an adult?(Which would have fried her brain) and does your daugter not have a primary care doctor she could have seen in the week prior? I work at an ER and am amazed at the people who come in after weeks of being sick and want us to fix them right there and then when not bothering to go to a doctors office, clinic, ect...for the weeks previous of being sick. The ER is not a place for the flu. It is not a place to bring your child for clinic illness. It is a place for emergencies!!! Broken, sprained, trauma, blood loss, motor vehicle accidents, heart attacks, strokes....the use of the ER as a clinic takes up space for a true emergency. Costs thousands of dollars to the public bc more often than not the patient has no insurance or TNCARE which will not pay for an ER visit if not an emergency, although we cannot turn these patients away so the public and hospital eats the bill. ...
The present study investigated the impact of product-related attention on neural predictors of consumer choices. Activation patterns in the insula and the mPFC were found to predict these choices under high and low attention processing (Fig. 2). Thus, a close match of predictive brain regions was revealed independent of spatial attention to products. This demonstrates that processing of unattended stimuli can proceed beyond object processing (Peelen et al., 2009) to a stage that even allows the prediction of consumer choices. Importantly, the amount of predictive information in these areas was comparably as high when task-irrelevant products were presented outside the focus of attention as when they were actively evaluated and attended to. Congruent with the notion of unconscious environmental triggers for automatic processes in consumer settings (Chartrand, 2005), this indicates that a prediction of economic choices from brain responses does not necessarily depend on attentive processing of ...

One person tweeted that either you got the right answer or you didnt, so it was fifty/fifty. Clearly not very helpful, but having said that, in this case there is a trick answer relying on this idea. The original question didnt say that we pick an answer uniformly at random - we could choose answer B half the time, answer C the other half of the time, and answers A and D not at all. Then the right answer is 50%, and that works. Similar uneven choices can be made to work in the other cases, and its interesting (and difficult) to explore the possibilities. Ill leave it as an exercise for the interested reader to find distributions that make any given answer right. Theres even a way to make three of the options right all at the same time, although that really doesnt sound right at all! It works, although some people feel that its cheating, and somehow wrong, not to choose among the options with equal probabilities. So heres another answer. Since none of the options seem to work, then ...
Strictly following the model set out in the Koehler Method of Dog Training, some 50 years later, the Koehler method continues to be taught in both class and private training formats. The method is based in the philosophy that a dog acts on its right to choose its actions. Koehler explained that a dogs learned behavior is an act of choice based on its own learning experience. When those choices are influenced by the expectation of reward, the behavior will most likely be repeated, and when those choices are influenced by the anticipation of punishment, they will most likely cease. Once the dog has learned that its choices result in comfort or discomfort it can be taught to make the correct decisions. Action→Memory→Desire encapsulates the learning pattern used by the method; the dog acts, remembers the consequences, and forms the desire to repeat or avoid those consequences. Adherents believe that once the behavior has been correctly taught, it should be performed, thus making any correction, ...

A benefitâ risk assessment model for statins using multicriteria decision analysis based on a discrete choice experiment in Korean patients Ji-Hye Byun,1 Sun-Hong Kwon,1 Ji-Hye Ha,2 Eui-Kyung Lee1 1School of Pharmacy, Sungkyunkwan University, Suwon-si, Gyeonggi-do, 2Ministry of Food and Drug Safety, Cheongju-si, Chungcheongbuk-do, South Korea Purpose: The benefitâ risk balance for drugs can alter post approval owing to additional data on efficacy or adverse events. This study developed a quantitative benefitâ risk assessment (BRA) model for statins using multicriteria decision analysis with discrete choice experiments and compared a recent BRA with that at the time of approval. Patients and methods: Following a systematic review of the literature, the benefit criteria within the statin BRA model were defined as a reduction in the plasma low-density lipoprotein cholesterol level and a reduction in myocardial infarction incidence; the risk criteria were hepatotoxicity (Liv) and fatal

This bibliography includes abstracts of 59 studies and review articles which are related to the effect of color coding on choice reaction time. As color displays become more widely used for information gathering and decision-making tasks, the effect of color coding on these tasks and their components will become increasingly important design considerations. Choice reaction time, the time required to make a binary choice, affects the total execution time of many decision-making and information gathering tasks, and seems to be a particularly relevant measure of effectiveness of color coding. This bibliography draws together much of the current literature, for reference by human factors researchers and systems designers. Two techniques lend themselves to measurement of choice reaction time the Sternberg paradigm and the Within-Task Subtractive Method.
Background: Exercise is effective in improving non-specific low back pain (LBP). Certain components of physical exercise, such as the type, intensity and frequency of exercise, are likely to influence participation among working adults with non-specific LBP, but the value and relative importance of these components remain unknown. The studys aim was to examine such specific components and their influence on individual preferences for exercise for secondary prevention of non-specific LBP among working adults. Methods: In a discrete choice experiment, working individuals with non-specific LBP answered a webbased questionnaire. Each respondent was given ten pairs of hypothetical exercise programs and asked to choose one option from each pair. The choices comprised six attributes of exercise (i.e., type of training, design, intensity, frequency, proximity and incentives), each with either three or four levels. A conditional logit regression that reflected the random utility model was used to ...

Methods In a discrete choice experiment, participants evaluated eight choice sets, each of which showed two cigarette packages from four different brands and tar levels (high vs low), accompanied by an insert that included between-subject manipulations (ie, listing of HPHCs vs grouping by disease outcome and numeric values ascribed to HPHCs vs no numbers) and within-subject manipulations (ie, 1 of 4 warning topics; statement linking an HPHC with disease vs statement with no HPHC link). For each choice set, participants were asked: (1) which package is more harmful and (2) which motivates them to not smoke; each with a no difference option. Alternative-specific logit models regressed choice on attribute levels. ...

Background This study investigated patient opinion about the provision of nurse-led vs. doctor-led primary health care in the treatment of minor illness.. Design A postal questionnaire survey including discrete choice experiment (DCE) of a national sample followed by telephone interviews with respondent volunteers.. Setting and participants A large random sample of the population of Scotland from a range of general practices including traditional and extended practice nursing roles was invited to participate.. Main outcome measures Patient satisfaction with, opinion of and preference for practice nurse (PN) vs. doctor consultation in primary care in relation to gender, age, education and income.. Results Questionnaire response rate was 49% (1343 of 2740). Women, younger people, the less well-educated and those with higher income had a more positive attitude towards the PN. Older people had a more positive attitude to the doctor. Results from the DCE indicated that whilst most respondents would ...
The 3-day Outcomes Workshop includes material linked directly to the needs of organisations, such as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), which make decisions about health care delivery and funding. The workshop covers the key principles of outcomes measurement and valuation as well as their practical implementation in health technology assessment. It focusses on the design, construction and application of a range of approaches to measuring and valuing health outcomes. The approaches considered include methods used in healthcare economic evaluation, such as quality-adjusted life years (QALYs) based on preference-based generic measures (e.g. EQ-5D, HUI); approaches used to map from clinical and disease-specific outcomes to generic measures; and direct elicitation of preferences. The use of discrete choice experiments is also considered. This workshop assumes participants have a basic familiarity with health technology assessment (HTA) and focuses on the role and ...

PURPOSE: To establish the relative weighting given by patients and healthcare professionals to gains in diagnostic sensitivity versus loss of specificity when using CT colonography (CTC) for colorectal cancer screening. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Following ethical approval and informed consent, 75 patients and 50 healthcare professionals undertook a discrete choice experiment in which they chose between standard CTC and enhanced CTC that raised diagnostic sensitivity 10% for either cancer or polyps in exchange for varying levels of specificity. We established the relative increase in false-positive diagnoses participants traded for an increase in true-positive diagnoses. RESULTS: Data from 122 participants were analysed. There were 30 (25%) non-traders for the cancer scenario and 20 (16%) for the polyp scenario. For cancer, the 10% gain in sensitivity was traded up to a median 45% (IQR 25 to |85) drop in specificity, equating to 2250 (IQR 1250 to |4250) additional false-positives per additional true
In this paper we present a stochastic route choice model for transit networks that explicitly addresses route correlation due to overlapping alternatives. The model is based on a multi-objective mathematical programming problem, the optimality conditions of which generate an extension to the Multinomial Logit models. The proposed model considers a fixed point problem for treating correlations between routes, which can be solved iteratively. We estimated the new model on the Santiago (Chile) Metro network and compared the results with other route choice models that can be found in the literature. The new model has better explanatory and predictive power that many other alternative models, correctly capturing the correlation factor. Our methodology can be extended to private transport networks.
To date there have been no value sets to support the use of the EQ-5D-Y in cost-utility analysis. Discrete choice experiments (DCEs) can be used to obtain values on a latent scale, but these values require anchoring at 0 = dead to meet the conventions of quality-adjusted life year (QALY) estimation. This Research Paper describes a study in which four stated preference methods for anchoring EQ-5D-Y values were compared: visual analogue scale, DCE (with a duration attribute), lag-time TTO and the recently developed location-of-dead (LOD) element of the personal utility function approach. ... - Science - Criteria for prioritization of HIV programs in Viet Nam: a discrete choice experiment (BMC Health Services Research)

The UK Black and The Health Divide reports considered two primary mechanisms for understanding how social determinants influence health: cultural/behavioral and materialist/structuralist[17] The cultural/behavioral explanation is that individuals behavioral choices (e.g., tobacco and alcohol use, diet, physical activity, etc.) were responsible for their development and deaths from a variety of diseases. However, both the Black and Health Divide reports found that behavioral choices are determined by ones material conditions of life, and these behavioral risk factors account for a relatively small proportion of variation in the incidence and death from various diseases. The materialist/structuralist explanation emphasizes the peoples material living conditions. These conditions include availability of resources to access the amenities of life, working conditions, and quality of available food and housing among others. Within this view, three frameworks have been developed to explain how social ...

Waiting times for elective care have been considered a serious problem in many health care systems. A topic of particular concern has been how administrative boundaries act as barriers to efficient patient flows. In Norway, a policy combining patients choice of hospital and removal of restriction on referrals was introduced in 2001, thereby creating a nationwide competitive referral system for elective hospital treatment. The article aims to analyse if patient choice and an increased opportunity for geographical mobility has reduced waiting times for individual elective patients. A survey conducted among Norwegian somatic patients in 2004 gave information about whether the choice of hospital was made by the individual patient or by others. Survey data was then merged with administrative data on which hospital that actually performed the treatment. The administrative data also gave individual waiting time for hospital admission. Demographics, socio-economic position, and medical need were controlled for
The RPL can take on a number of different functional forms and incorporate a number of underlying distribution assumptions. The most popular assumptions are normal, triangular, uniform and log-normal distributions (Bhat, 2000; 2001). The log-normal distribution is applied if the response parameter needs to be a specific sign (Louviere et al., 2000; Carlsson et al., 2003). Where dummy variables are used, a uniform distribution with a (0, 1) bound is appropriate. It can be difficult to determine which variables to distribute and which distributions to choose. Some applications only randomise the cost variable, others choose to randomise all non-price variables and leave cost as non-random (Layton, 2000; Anderson, 2003). The latter choice is favoured for two reasons: firstly, the distribution of the marginal willingness to pay (WTP) for an attribute is simply the distribution of that attributes parameter estimate, and, secondly, it allows the cost variable to be restricted to be non-positive for ...

The first part of the paper gives an short overview on different logit models including models for binary panel data, ordinal variables and decision trees. The availability of these models im BMDP, LIMDEP, SAS, SPSS, SYSTAT and the free ware statistical system TDA is discussed in the second part. Though only few procedures are designed especially to estimate the parameters of logistic models other procedures can be used as well. For example, the conditional logit model or logistic discrete choice model may be estimated by procedures for event history analysis. Exemplaric program ...

Perceptual decisions occur after the evaluation and integration of momentary sensory inputs, and dividing attention between spatially disparate sources of information impairs decision performance. However, it remains unknown whether dividing attention degrades the precision of sensory signals, precludes their conversion into decision signals, or dampens the integration of decision information toward an appropriate response. Here we recorded human electroencephalographic (EEG) activity while participants categorized one of two simultaneous and independent streams of visual gratings according to their average tilt. By analyzing trial-by-trial correlations between EEG activity and the information offered by each sample, we obtained converging behavioral and neural evidence that dividing attention between left and right visual fields does not dampen the encoding of sensory or decision information. Under divided attention, momentary decision information from both visual streams was encoded in slow parietal
How do we make decisions? Conventional decision theory tells us only which behavioral choices we ought to make if we follow certain axioms. In real life, however, our choices are governed by cognitive mechanisms shaped over evolutionary time through the process of natural selection. Evolution has created strong biases in how and when we process information, and it is these evolved cognitive building blocks-from signal detection and memory to individual and social learning-that provide the foundation for our choices ...
The integration of stimuli from the same or different modalities offers many benefits such as enhanced discrimination and accelerated reaction to objects. This thesis investigates the effects of stimulis spatial location on the redundancy gain (RG) obtained with cross-modal and within-modal stimulations. The RG is a decrease in reaction times (RT) when two or more stimuli are presented simultaneously rather than a single stimulation. The first study investigated cross-modal visuo-tactile integration in a single reaction time task and a choice reaction time task. Each unisensory stimulus was presented to either the left or right hemispace, and multisensory stimuli were presented in a unilateral (e.g. visual right/tactile right) or bilateral configuration (e.g. visual right/tactile left). The first task was a simple reaction time (SRT) paradigm where participants had to responded to all stimulations, irrespective of spatial position. Results showed that multisensory gain and coactivation were the ...

This study examined performance measures and eye movements associated with complex arithmetic strategies in young and older adults. Participants added pairs of three-digit numbers using two different strategies, under choice and no-choice conditions. Older adults made more errors but were not significantly slower than young adults, and response times and errors showed no interaction between age and the number of carries. Older adults chose strategies less adaptively than young adults. Eye movements were consistent with use of required strategies on no-choice trials and reported strategies on choice trials. Eye movement data also suggested that young adults more successfully distinguished between strategies. Implications of these findings for understanding aging effects in complex arithmetic are discussed ...

Development in risk-taking tendencies and impulsive control have been attributed to an imbalance between subcortical and cortical brain regions (Somerville et al., 2010; Casey, 2015), but very few studies have examined the anatomical connections between these areas in relation to impulsive choice. One important dimension of impulsivity is the ability to delay gratification (Whelan et al., 2012). Next to examining developmental patterns in impulsive choice and frontostriatal WM integrity, the current study aimed to test whether the integrity of frontostriatal WM connections mediated and predicted the ability to delay gratification across development. We were able to demonstrate that age-related increases in the preference for delayed rewards (i.e., less impulsive choice) were significantly dependent on a better quality of connections between the PFC and striatum. Moreover, the longitudinal analysis revealed that stronger connectivity between striatum and PFC predicted less impulsive choices 2 ...

Results: We obtained 20 882 survey responses (94 606 preferences) from 27 EU member countries. Respondents recognized the benefits of storing electronic health information, with 75.5%, 63.9%, and 58.9% agreeing that storage was important for improving treatment quality, preventing epidemics, and reducing delays, respectively. Concerns about different levels of access by third parties were expressed by 48.9% to 60.6% of respondents. On average, compared to devices or systems that only store basic health status information, respondents preferred devices that also store identification data (coefficient/relative preference 95% CI = 0.04 [0.00-0.08], P = 0.034) and information on lifelong health conditions (coefficient = 0.13 [0.08 to 0.18], P , 0.001), but there was no evidence of this for devices with information on sensitive health conditions such as mental and sexual health and addictions (coefficient = −0.03 [−0.09 to 0.02], P = 0.24). Respondents were averse to their immediate family ...

(
  • Some elementary aspect is actually present in every social encounter, since the behavior of the participants is never completely determined by prior expectations associated with the positions they occupy in stable social structures. (

  • Outside of driving safety, negative impacts on cognitive load in transportation choice and usage are unknown. (
  • Importantly, these challenges have consistent effects on behavior across laboratories in intact animals and can reveal either enhancements or deficits in cognitive function that are not apparent when rats are only tested on the standard task. (
  • The difference again is that both characters choose - same desperation, different cognitive process. (
  • We demonstrate, for the first time, oppositional effects of imprinted genes on brain and behavior. (
  • While much has been learned from mammalian model organisms, very few genes involved in feeding behavior and energy homeostasis have been identified because of the difficulty in performing genetic screens in these models. (
  • Finally, I will conduct two targeted genetic screens: one to identify other genes involved downstream of glucosensing in dSGLT neurons and the other to identify the neuropeptides and neuropeptide circuits downstream of SGLT neurons that mediate the effector mechanisms ultimately regulating food choice. (
  • The findings suggest that shopping situation should be specified, that multiple indicators of patronage should be explored, and that parameters in a model of mall-choice behavior should initially be estimated separately for each shopping area under study. (
  • The strength of this modeling approach lies in its detailed, quantitative predictions of behavior, yet LATER models still retain their conceptual simplicity that made LATER initially successful in explaining reaction times in simple decision tasks. (
  • What initially attracted much interest to collective behavior was the element of drama almost invariably present in certain "mass" phenomena, whether in the form of novelty, bizarre behavior, exaggerated emotionality, violence, extremist ideology, or some kind of oddity. (
