Socioeconomic inequalities and disability pension in middle-aged men. (1/2498)

BACKGROUND: The issue of inequalities in health has generated much discussion and socioeconomic status is considered an important variable in studies of health. It is frequently used in epidemiological studies, either as a possible risk factor or a confounder and the aim of this study was to analyse the relation between socioeconomic status and risk of disability pension. METHODS: Five complete birth year cohorts of middle-aged male residents in Malmo were invited to a health survey and 5782 with complete data constituted the cohort in this prospective study. Each subject was followed for approximately 11 years and nationwide Swedish data registers were used for surveillance. RESULTS: Among the 715 men (12%), granted disability pension during follow-up, three groups were distinguished. The cumulative incidence of disability pension among blue collar workers was 17% and among lower and higher level white collar workers, 11% and 6% respectively. With simultaneous adjustment for biological risk factors and job conditions, the relative risk for being granted a disability pension (using higher level white collar workers as reference) was 2.5 among blue collar workers and 1.6 among lower level white collar workers. CONCLUSIONS: Socioeconomic status, as defined by occupation, is a risk factor for being granted disability pension even after adjusting for work conditions and other risk factors for disease.  (+info)

Disabling injuries of the cervical spine in Argentine rugby over the last 20 years. (2/2498)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the incidence and risk factors of disabling injuries to the cervical spine in rugby in Argentina. METHODS: A retrospective review of all cases reported to the Medical Committee of the Argentine Rugby Union (UAR) and Rugby Amistad Foundation was carried out including a follow up by phone. Cumulative binomial distribution, chi 2 test, Fisher test, and comparison of proportions were used to analyse relative incidence and risk of injury by position and by phase of play (Epi Info 6, Version 6.04a). RESULTS: Eighteen cases of disabling injury to the cervical spine were recorded from 1977 to 1997 (0.9 cases per year). The forwards (14 cases) were more prone to disabling injury of the cervical spine than the backs (four cases) (p = 0.03). Hookers (9/18) were at highest risk of injury (p < 0.01). The most frequent cervical injuries occurred at the 4th, 5th, and 6th vertebrae. Seventeen of the injuries occurred during match play. Set scrums were responsible for most of the injuries (11/18) but this was not statistically significant (p = 0.44). The mean age of the injured players was 22. Tetraplegia was initially found in all cases. Physical rehabilitation has been limited to the proximal muscles of the upper limbs, except for two cases of complete recovery. One death, on the seventh day after injury, was reported. CONCLUSIONS: The forwards suffered a higher number of injuries than the backs and this difference was statistically significant. The chance of injury for hookers was statistically higher than for the rest of the players and it was particularly linked to scrummaging. However, the number of injuries incurred in scrums was not statistically different from the number incurred in other phases of play.  (+info)

Systematic review of day hospital care for elderly people. The Day Hospital Group. (4/2498)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the effectiveness of day hospital attendance in prolonging independent living for elderly people. DESIGN: Systematic review of 12 controlled clinical trials (available by January 1997) comparing day hospital care with comprehensive care (five trials), domiciliary care (four trials), or no comprehensive care (three trials). SUBJECTS: 2867 elderly people. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Death, institutionalisation, disability, global "poor outcome," and use of resources. RESULTS: Overall, there was no significant difference between day hospitals and alternative services for death, disability, or use of resources. However, compared with subjects receiving no comprehensive care, patients attending day hospitals had a lower odds of death or "poor" outcome (0.72, 95% confidence interval 0.53 to 0.99; P<0.05) and functional deterioration (0.61, 0.38 to 0.97; P<0.05). The day hospital group showed trends towards reductions in hospital bed use and placement in institutional care. Eight trials reported treatment costs, six of which reported that day hospital attendance was more expensive than other care, although only two analyses took into account cost of long term care. CONCLUSIONS: Day hospital care seems to be an effective service for elderly people who need rehabilitation but may have no clear advantage over other comprehensive care. Methodological problems limit these conclusions, and further randomised trials are justifiable.  (+info)

Measuring handicap: the London Handicap Scale, a new outcome measure for chronic disease. (5/2498)

OBJECTIVE: To develop a handicap measurement scale in a self completion questionnaire format, with scale weights allowing quantification of handicap at an interval level of measurement. DESIGN: Adaptation of the International Classification of Impairments, Disabilities and handicaps into a practical questionnaire incorporating the dimensions of handicap mobility, occupation, physical independence, social integration, orientation, and economic self sufficiency and scale weights derived from interviews with a general population sample, with the technique of conjoint analysis. SETTING: Two general practices in different areas of London. SUBJECTS: 240 adults aged 55-74 years randomly selected from the practices, 101 (42%) of whom agreed to be interviewed, and 79 (78%) of whom completed the exercise. MAIN MEASURES: Rating of severity of handicap associated with 30 hypothetical health scenarios on a visual analogue scale, from which was derived a matrix of scale weights ("part utilities") relating to different levels of disadvantage on each dimension, with a formula for combining them into an overall handicap score. Severity scores measured directly for five scenarios not used to derive the scale weights were compared with those calculated from the formula to validate the model. RESULTS: The part utilities obtained conformed with the expected hierarchy for each dimension, confirming the validity of the method. The measured severities and those calculated from the formula for the five scenarios used to validate the model agreed closely (Pearson's r = 0.98, p = 0.0009; Kendall's tau = 1.00, p = 0.007). CONCLUSIONS: This interval level handicap measurement scale will be useful in assessing both specific therapies and health services, in clinical trials, in analyses of cost effectiveness, and in assessments of quality assurance.  (+info)

Patient satisfaction: an indicator of quality in disablement services centres. (6/2498)

OBJECTIVES: To develop a patient satisfaction system for disablement services centres and to report on how the initial findings have been used in audit to improve their quality of care and services. DESIGN: Interview survey of randomly selected users attending in three centres: Birmingham (centre X), Oxford (centre Y), and Cambridge (centre Z) to establish core topics for developing a patient satisfaction questionnaire with incorporation into a computer patient satisfaction system (PATSAT) to enable collation of responses to the questionnaire. A pilot of the questionnaire was undertaken in the centres to assess the sensitivity of the questionnaire, which was subsequently used as part of clinical audit process during June 1991 and April 1992 in centre X and the patient satisfaction system used to monitor changes in routine practice. PATIENTS: 123 amputees in the development phase, selected by cluster sampling, and 1103 amputees in the pilot study. MAIN MEASURES: Satisfaction scores for components of the service. RESULTS: The questionnaire included 16 core topics contributing to quality of care and services, including comfort of limbs, appointments, interpersonal aspects of care, a system of support and counselling, and organisation. The pilot survey demonstrated high satisfaction scores for aspects of interpersonal care, organisation, and physical surroundings of the centres and lower satisfaction for counselling services, comfort of the limb and the number of alterations made before the limb was considered acceptable. During the audit in centre X these results prompted changes to care and services which produced significant improvements in satisfaction. CONCLUSIONS: The early results suggest that the questionnaire, coupled with PATSAT software system, enable users' views to be expressed, collated, and fed back to staff; the information provided has already prompted change, and the system is sufficiently sensitive to measure changes in satisfaction with the service.  (+info)

Opening the debate on DALYs (disability-adjusted life years). (7/2498)

The 1993 World Development Report is proving to be an influential document for the development of the health sector policies in developing countries. One important aspect of the Report concerns its proposals for Disability Adjusted Life Years as a measure of health change and hence effectiveness of interventions. This article comments on the use of such measures in the health policy arena.  (+info)

Longer term quality of life and outcome in stroke patients: is the Barthel index alone an adequate measure of outcome? (8/2498)

OBJECTIVES: To consider whether the Barthel Index alone provides sufficient information about the long term outcome of stroke. DESIGN: Cross sectional follow up study with a structured interview questionnaire and measures of impairment, disability, handicap, and general health. The scales used were the hospital anxiety and depression scale, mini mental state examination, Barthel index, modified Rankin scale, London handicap scale, Frenchay activities index, SF36, Nottingham health profile, life satisfaction index, and the caregiver strain index. SETTING: South east London. SUBJECTS: People, and their identified carers, resident in south east London in 1989-90 when they had their first in a life-time stroke aged under 75 years. INTERVENTIONS: Observational study. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Comparison and correlation of the individual Barthel index scores with the scores on other outcome measures. RESULTS: One hundred and twenty three (42%) people were known to be alive, of whom 106 (86%) were interviewed. The median age was 71 years (range 34-79). The mean interval between the stroke and follow up was 4.9 years. The rank correlation coefficients between the Barthel and the different dimensions of the SF36 ranged from r = 0.217 (with the role emotional dimension) to r = 0.810 (with the physical functioning dimension); with the Nottingham health profile the range was r = -0.189 (with the sleep dimension, NS) to r = -0.840 (with the physical mobility dimension); with the hospital and anxiety scale depression component the coefficient was r = -0.563, with the life satisfaction index r = 0.361, with the London handicap scale r = 0.726 and with the Frenchay activities index r = 0.826. CONCLUSIONS: The place of the Barthel index as the standard outcome measure for populations of stroke patients is still justified for long term follow up, and may be a proxy for different outcome measures intended for the assessment of other domains.  (+info)

The usual approach in disability surveys is to screen persons with disability upfront and then ask questions about everyday problems. The objectives of this paper are to demonstrate the impact of screeners on disability rates, to challenge the usual exclusion of persons with mild and moderate disability from disability surveys and to demonstrate the advantage of using an a posteriori cut-off. Using data of a pilot study of the WHO Model Disability Survey (MDS) in Cambodia and the polytomous Rasch model, metric scales of disability were built. The conventional screener approach based on the short disability module of the Washington City Group and the a posteriori cut-off method described in the World Disability Report were compared regarding disability rates. The screener led to imprecise rates and classified persons with mild to moderate disability as non-disabled, although these respondents already experienced important problems in daily life. The a posteriori cut-off applied to the general ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Associations between disability prevalence and local-area characteristics in a general community-living population. AU - Philibert, Mathieu. AU - Pampalon, Robert. AU - Hamel, Denis. AU - DANIEL, Mark. PY - 2013/10/17. Y1 - 2013/10/17. N2 - BACKGROUND: Disability is understood to arise from person-environment interactions. Hence, heterogeneity in local-area characteristics should be associated with local-area variation in disability prevalence. This study evaluated the associations of disability prevalence with local-area socioeconomic status and contextual features. METHODS: Disability prevalence was obtained from the Canada census of 2001 for the entire province of Québec at the level of dissemination areas (617 individuals on average) based on responses from 20% of the population. Data on local-area characteristics were urban-rural denomination, social and material deprivation, active and collective commuting, residential stability, and housing quality. Associations between ...

INTRODUCTION: A strong relationship exists between disability and poor health. This relationship could exist as a result of disabilities emerging from chronic conditions; conversely, people with disabilities may be at increased risk of developing chronic conditions. Studying health in relation to age of disability onset can illuminate the extent to which disability may be a risk factor for future poor health. METHODS: We used data from the 2006-2012 National Health Interview Survey and conducted weighted logistic regression analyses to compare chronic conditions in adults with lifelong disabilities (n = 2,619) and adults with no limitations (n = 122,395). RESULTS: After adjusting for sociodemographic differences, adults with lifelong disabilities had increased odds of having the following chronic conditions compared with adults with no limitations: coronary heart disease (adjusted odds ratio [AOR] = 2.92; 95% confidence interval [CI], 2.33-3.66) cancer (AOR = 1.61; 95% CI, 1.34-1.94), diabetes ...
Take the case of Ben, a support worker, who has been supporting John for the past eight years. However, when Ben changed jobs, he was told that he wasnt allowed to keep in touch with John, despite both men wanting this to happen.. Then there is Alice, also a support worker, who was told by her manager that she was not allowed to buy and apply suncream on a hot day for someone she supports because suncream needs to be prescribed by a GP.. These are two real-life stories, chosen from a larger pool of similar stories. We are in a situation where decisions allegedly made in the interests of the safety of people with learning disabilities can actually make them less safe. And support workers are being made to feel that they need to leave their common sense and moral compass behind in their work.. As John OBrien, a leading thinker in the field of disability, puts it, we have created a rigorously managed space that too often trades off opportunity for community participation and the exercise of ...

Persons aging with long-term disabilities such as spinal cord injury or multiple sclerosis and older adults share similar chronic conditions in mid and later life in the United States. The rising general interest and more prevalent federal requirements for use of evidence-based practices (EBP) in health promotion and chronic condition interventions highlight the gap between demand and the availability of EBPs for persons aging with disability in particular. Addressing this gap will require focused efforts that will benefit substantially by bridging the fields of aging and disability/rehabilitation to develop new EBPs, translate existing EBPs across populations, and borrow best practices across fields where there are few current EBPs. Understanding distinctions between disability-related secondary conditions and age-related chronic conditions is a first step in identifying shared conditions that are important to address for both mid-life and older adults with disabilities. This review articulates these
Driving can provide independent and efficient mobility. However, according to the driving license directive (91/439/EEC) are persons with locomotor impairments are only allowed drive if their disabilities can be compensated. Compensation can be realised by vehicle adaptations. The directive provides meagre guidance on how vehicles should be adapted or how to verify that the compensatory requirements are fulfilled. This is a gap in the current process for licensing drivers with physical disabilities. Furthermore, the Swedish process from driver assessment to driver licensing and adaptation approval is complex, fragmented, and suffer from lack of communication between involved authorities. The objective of this thesis was to contribute to the development of a method to evaluate vehicle adaptations for driver with physical disabilities. The focus was on the evaluation of adaptations for steering, accelerating and braking. Three driving simulator experiments and one manoeuvre test with adapted ...

This analysis soundly sets the scene for the two basic themes in the book; first, how older parental carers and middle‐aged adults with an intellectual disability can be supported to care and to plan and prepare for the transition from parental care; and secondly, how to ensure that people with a lifelong disability can age successfully. The book is directed especially to those professionals who are called upon to support both the family carers and the people with disabilities. Of special relevance is the books focus on drawing together what are at times the disparate silo mentalities of professionals working in the separate health, aged care and disability sectors ...
You could sue and get a judgment, but most states would not allow you to garnish the disability benefits to collect the judgment. If the person on disability had other assets like a house, you could go after those assets. If the person IS on disability, they might not HAVE other assets to go after.

Canadians with spinal cord injury and other physical disabilities can face a number of barriers in their daily lives. Barriers might include limited access to buildings, parks, playgrounds, and lack of resources or services. To minimize or remove barriers and improve their quality of life, the Foundation manages the Quality of Life Program (QOL). Grants are provided to support individuals and community projects that improve accessibility, remove barriers, and enable Canadians with physical disabilities to participate in and contribute to their community. Children with disabilities can now join their friends at play instead of watching from afar ...
Having a disability may not interfere with a persons participation in normal daily activities. That will depend on the level of restriction associated with their particular disability. In 1998, a small proportion of the total population (6%) had a profound or severe restriction from their disability. That is, their condition either completely restricted them from undertaking everyday activities such as dressing, washing, eating or walking, or they sometimes or always required assistance from others to do these things, or they had difficulty in communicating. Unlike the disability rate, which increased gradually over the lifespan, the likelihood of being profoundly or severely restricted remained relatively low (less than 9%) until about age 70. After this age it increased rapidly - from 14% for those aged 70 to 74, to almost one in three (31%) for those aged 80 to 84. From 85 years onward almost two-thirds (65%) in this age group had a profound or severe restriction (table 1). Men and women had ...

While not a perfect measure -- the poverty rate (the 2012 poverty line is $11,945 for a single-person household) does give us some good guidance about levels of poverty and who are among our poorest residents. While older adults as a group have the lowest poverty rate, older adults in poverty have a higher disability rate. About 1 in 3 Minnesotans age 65+ have a disability, but that rate jumps to 1 in 2 for older adults in poverty, and it is getting worse. Since 2008, the disability rate has increased more than 10 percent for older adults in poverty, while remaining steady for older adults as a whole.. VIEW: Economy , Poverty. ...

Typically, RA outcomes are measured by the ACR70 criteria. What rheumatologists began to see, however, was patients could more easily achieve remission than they could meet the ACR70 criteria. This suggested remission was somehow separate from the response to treatment documented by the ACR70. Dr. Smolen explained this difference is probably at least partly due to the way the hand is constructed. The patient with early disease has disability as a result of stiffness or pain from disease activity, and the disability can be fully reversed with treatment. In contrast, a patient with longstanding disease has disability, not from disease activity, but from the damage itself. The disability in this patient is the consequence of joint destruction. So this latter patient will experience permanent disability in the face of clinical remission. Dr. Smolen explained that a patient with a modified Sharp score of 50 or higher will likely not show much response to treatment because such a patient has physical ...

Teachers notes: if the students participated in the Everyone Everyday years 3 and 4 program, they would be familiar with the definition of disability used throughout the program (see below). When talking about different types of disability, highlight that some disabilities can be hidden (not obvious, cannot see them) eg learning disability. In fact, 90% of disabilities are hidden. Please note that this unit does not go into depth about the medical side of disability, and focuses more on developing inclusive behaviours and attitudes, no matter what the challenges are. All people experience disability differently - always respond to the individuals needs rather than making assumptions about their ability. Children are encouraged to find out more about specific disabilities through their own research and homework activities. When discussing definitions of disability, be mindful of the feelings of children in your class that may have this disability.. Establish context (show this whole section on ...

K. Vaccinations. The availability of COVID-19 vaccinations may raise questions about the applicablilty of various equal employment opportunity (EEO) laws, including the ADA and the Rehabilitation Act, GINA, and Title VII, including the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (see Section J, EEO rights relating to pregnancy). The EEO laws do not interfere with or prevent employers from following CDC or other federal, state, and local public health authorities guidelines and suggestions.. ADA and Vaccinations. K.1. For any COVID-19 vaccine that has been approved or authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is the administration of a COVID-19 vaccine to an employee by an employer (or by a third party with whom the employer contracts to administer a vaccine) a medical examination for purposes of the ADA?

Downloadable (with restrictions)! To examine change from 1991 to 2001 in disability-free life expectancy in the age range 60-90 by gender, race, and education in the United States. Mortality is estimated over two 10-year follow-up periods for persons in the National Health Interview Surveys of 1986/1987 and 1996/1997. Vital status is ascertained through the National Death Index. Disability prevalence is estimated from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys of 1988-1994 and 1999-2002. Disability is defined as ability to perform four activities of daily living without difficulty. Disability-free life expectancy increased only among white men. Disabled life expectancy increased for all groups-black and white men and women. Racial differences in disability-free life expectancy widened among men; gender differences were reduced among whites. Expansion of socioeconomic differentials in disability-free life at older ages occurred among white men and women and black women. The 1990s was a period

136 (30%) participants developed chronic disability. High baseline disability (OR 3.3, 95%CI 1.97 to 5.55), longer predicted recovery time (OR 2.4, 95%CI 1.45 to 3.87), psychological distress (OR 1.9, 95%CI 1.05 to 3.51), passive coping (OR 1.8, 95%CI 1.07 to 2.97) and greater number of symptoms (OR 1.7, 95%CI 1.07 to 2.78) were associated with chronic disability. One risk factor resulted in 3.5 times the risk (95%CI 1.04 to 11.45) of chronic disability but this risk increased to 16 times (95%CI 5.36 to 49.27) in those with four or five risk factors.. ...
Downloadable! We estimate consumers%u2019 valuation of disability insurance using a stochastic lifecycle framework in which disability is modeled as permanent, involuntary retirement. We base our probabilities of worklimiting disability on 25 years of data from the Current Population Survey and examine the changes in the disability gradient for different demographic groups over their lifecycle. Our estimates show that a typical consumer would be willing to pay about 5 percent of expected consumption to eliminate the average disability risk faced by current workers. Only about 2 percentage points reflect the impact of disability on expected lifetime earnings; the larger part is attributable to the uncertainty associated with the threat of disablement. We estimate that no more than 20 percent of mean assets accumulated before voluntary retirement are attributable to disability risks measured for any demographic group in our data. Compared to other reductions in expected utility of comparable amounts, such
Older women in the United States have long enjoyed an advantage over men in the number of years lived without disabilities. Results in this study of mortality and disability trends for men and women ages 65 and older indicate that the advantage disappeared from 1982 to 2011. Data are from the 1982 and 2004 National Long Term Care Survey and the 2011 National Health and Aging Trends Study. For older men, longevity increased, disability was postponed, and the percentage of remaining life spent active increased. However, for older women, small longevity increases were accompanied by smaller postponements in disability and stagnation of active life as a percentage of life expectancy. As a consequence, older women no longer live more active years than men, despite living longer lives. Public health measures directed at older women to postpone disability may be needed to offset long-term care pressures related to population aging ...

Study Purpose: In the past few years it has become alarmingly clear that women with disabilities are at an extremely high risk for emotional, sexual, and physical assault. The Developmental Disabilities Institute at Wayne State University, in collaboration with the United Cerebral Palsy Association in Michigan, conducted a one-year study to investigate the prevalence and correlates of, and service system capacity related to, domestic abuse among women with physical disabilities in Michigan. The study aimed to address the following research questions: (1) What is the prevalence of domestic violence among a sample of women with physical disabilities? (2) What potential factors for domestic violence exist among women with physical disabilities? and (3) What is the capacity of existing support programs (e.g., safe houses, shelters, and service agencies) to assist women with physical disabilities? Study Design: The population studied was women over the age of 18 who had physical disabilities. ...

What if I told you that there is right and wrong language to use when talking about disability? Our disability language, that is, the way we describe or talk about disability is informed by the prevalent ideas about disability in our society. In some societies, disability is regarded as a curse or bad omen and persons living with disability are objects of pity thus leading to demeaning ways of talking about disability.. What is Disability Language?. Disability Language are the different ways disability is understood and/or described, for example, in terms of words used for persons with disabilities, words that describes or identifies their disabilities or words used to describe their role in the family or community. The different ways of understanding and describing disability can promote either a positive or negative attitude to disability.. According to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of People with Disability (CRPD), disability is an evolving concept and it results from the ...

Michael J. Astrue, Commissioner of Social Security, announced on October 13, 2011, 13 new Compassionate Allowances conditions involving the immune system and neurological disorders. The Compassionate Allowances program fast-tracks disability decisions to ensure that Americans with the most serious disabilities receive their benefit decisions within days instead of months or years. Commissioner Astrue made the announcement during his remarks at the U.S. Conference on Rare Diseases and Orphan Products in Washington, D.C. Social Security handles more than three million disability applications each year and we need to keep innovating and making our work more efficient, Commissioner Astrue said. With our Compassionate Allowances program, we quickly approved disability benefits for more than 60,000 people with severe disabilities in the past fiscal year. We have made significant improvements, but we can always do more. The Compassionate Allowances initiative identifies claims where the nature of ...
The capital insured is calculated based on the average of the professional income for the last 3 years. 80% of this amount will define the maximum annual capital dedicated to the Temporary Incapacity coverage. Once the level of disability has been defined (no later than 24 months after the accident), if it is more than 50% the permanent disability benefit will be available. The amount of compensation for the Temporary Disability would be deducted from the capital for the Permanent Disability. The percentage of the Permanent Disability would be defined according to the table BOBI.. Example Figures:. Mr Dupond, a non-smoker, 45 years old. His professional income is equivalent to €98,000, €100,000 and €102,000 over the course of the past 3 years. The average for the 3 years is €100,000 per year. The capital for Temporary Disability in the framework of the guarantee amounts to €80,000. Mr Dupond said, logically, he would work for 20 more years. Calculate the total of his income which would ...

Introduction: Disability is simply the inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity as a result of any physical or mental impairment. Disability, impairment and infirmity are interchangeable terms. It is always difficult and confusing to distinguish between these terms. Disabilities and permanent infirmity have a great impact on most of the societies. They represent a challenging health, social and medicolegal wide world problem. Around 15% of the worlds population, or estimated 1 billion people, live with disabilities. According to 2006 Egyptian census, it was estimated that 1.8% of the Egyptian population is living with disabilities and the number increase as 10.7% of the Egyptian population is living with disabilities according to 2017 Egyptian census. Aim of the Work: To assess the validity and effectiveness of laws and tables determining disability percentage and compare between Egyptian permanent infirmity tables and other methods like ICF Methods: A retrospective study of all cases
Visual impairment (VI) is estimated to affect around 1 in 11 US adults aged 65 and older and is associated with an increased risk of falls, social isolation, loss of independence, disability, and dementia. Older adults with dementia and self-reported VI may be at high risk for disability, while the co-occurrence of the 2 conditions may potentiate this risk, according to a study published in |em|JAMA Ophthalmology.|/em||br /|  
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than one billion people are estimated to live with some form of disability. This corresponds to about 15 percent of the worlds population. Disability rates are increasing in part due to aging populations and an increase in chronic health conditions. People with disabilities seek more health care than people without disabilities and have greater unmet needs. For example, a recent survey of people with serious mental disorders showed that between 35 and 50 percent of people in developed countries, and between 76 and 85 percent in developing countries, received no treatment in the year prior to the study. Health promotion and prevention activities seldom target people with disabilities. For example, women with disabilities receive less screening for breast and cervical cancer than women without disabilities. People with intellectual impairments and diabetes are less likely to have their weight checked. Adolescents and adults with disabilities ...

OBJECTIVE Older patients with diabetes are more likely to have a higher prevalence of multiple risk factors for physical disability, as a result of diabetic complications. We evaluated the pace of decline in lower-extremity function and the risk for progression of disability in older women with diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS We conducted a 3-year longitudinal cohort study of a random sample of 729 physically impaired older women (age | or =65 years) living in the community (Baltimore, MD). Diabetes was ascertained by standard criteria. Self-reported functional status and objective performance measures were assessed at baseline and over six semiannual follow-up visits. RESULTS The baseline prevalence of diabetes was 14.4%. After adjustment for age and compared with women without diabetes, those with diabetes had an RR of 1.8 (95% CI 1.3-2.5) for incident mobility disability and 1.6 (1.2-2.1) for incident activity of daily living disability. The increased incidence of new disability associated

There may be a limited number of ways to realize important human goods like rich aesthetic experience, and those with disabilities may have fewer ways to do so. But the ways they have may be as good as the ways they lack, and employing the ones they have need not be seen as compensating for their inability to employ the ones they lack. Having more ways to realize a good does not mean that you can realize it more fully.. This response, however, suggests two final sources of difference, both of which involve what we might call welfare security. Even if people with a single major disability can live as well as people without one, 1) it requires more effort or luck for them to do so, and 2) they are at greater risk of lacking the means to do so. The first claim is that the fewer means there are to achieve a particular good like rich aesthetic experience, the more difficult it may be to achieve it. An individual who can meet his aesthetic quota, so to speak, with sunsets or symphonies, doesnt have ...

When Fries and his team began this research in 1984, many scientists thought vigorous exercise would do older folks more harm than good. Some feared the long-term effect of the then-new jogging craze would be floods of orthopedic injuries, with older runners permanently hobbled by their exercise habit. Fries had a different hypothesis: he thought regular exercise would extend high-quality, disability-free life. Keeping the body moving, he speculated, wouldnt necessarily extend longevity, but it would compress the period at the end of life when people couldnt carry out daily tasks on their own. That idea came to be known as the compression of morbidity theory ...
