Influence of proxy respondents in children's health interview surveys. (1/186)

STUDY OBJECTIVES: To study the influence of the proxy respondent on health interview surveys in children. DESIGN: Cross sectional study. SETTING: Children under the age of 15 years drawn from the general population of Catalonia, Spain. PARTICIPANTS: The Catalan Health Interview Survey consisted of a multistage probability sample representative to the population of Catalonia. The sample size was 2433 children younger than 15 years of age. The interviews were answered by proxy respondents (the mother, father, or other carer), with the questionnaire adapted for the proxy respondent. Logistic regression models were used to analyse the relation between the proxy respondent's characteristics and health status and health care utilisation, controlling for the effect of sociodemographic factors. MAIN RESULTS: Proxy respondent's characteristics influenced the reports of chronic conditions and accidents within the last year. Proxy respondents over 55 years (OR = 0.47; 95% CI = 0.26, 0.82), men (OR = 0.69; 95% CI = 0.53, 0.89), the father (OR = 0.66; 95% CI = 0.50, 0.89), and the grandparents (OR = 0.49; 95% CI = 0.26, 0.89), reported a lower rate of chronic conditions. Age of the proxy 55 years or greater (OR = 0.41; 95% CI = 0.20, 0.82), men (OR = 0.70; 95% CI = 0.52, 0.94), fathers (OR = 0.68; 95% CI = 0.49, 0.92), and grandparents (OR = 0.40; 95% CI = 0.18, 0.85) showed a lower probability to report accidents. No variables related to the proxy were associated with physician visits or hospitalisation in the previous year. CONCLUSIONS: Selected characteristics of the proxy respondent can influence responses to health surveys involving children. A minimum set of basic data should be collected from the proxy respondent to evaluate different patterns of response.  (+info)

Smoking status by proxy and self report: rate of agreement in different ethnic groups. (2/186)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the rate of agreement between proxy and self report of smoking status in Hispanics compared with other ethnic groups. DESIGN: Data source is the 1990 California Tobacco Survey (CTS) which includes proxy and self reported smoking status. The CTS is a random digit dialed survey conducted in 57,244 households. A sample of 10,011 adults was included in the analyses. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Percentages of agreement and disagreement between self report and report by other member of the household on smoking status. RESULTS: Cohen's kappa coefficients of agreement on smoking status between self report and proxy report was highest in non-Hispanic whites and African Americans (kappa = 0.91), followed by Asian Americans (kappa = 0.82) and Hispanics (kappa = 0.76). Among adults identified as current smokers by proxy, a lower percentage of Hispanics compared with non-Hispanics indicated that they were current smokers (odds ratio (OR) = 3.74, 95% confidence intervals (CI) = 3.28 to 4.20). Furthermore, agreement between proxy and self report was also lower in Hispanics of low acculturation compared with Hispanics with a high level of acculturation (OR = 0.40, 95% CI = 0 to 0.94). CONCLUSIONS: The agreement between self reported and proxy reported smoking status is higher among non-Hispanics compared with Hispanics. Smoking rates in different ethnic groups that are estimated by telephone surveys including proxy and self report might not be comparable.  (+info)

Validity of rapid estimates of household wealth and income for health surveys in rural Africa. (3/186)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To test the validity of proxy measures of household wealth and income that can be readily implemented in health surveys in rural Africa. DESIGN: Data are drawn from four different integrated household surveys. The assumptions underlying the choice of wealth proxy are described, and correlations with the true value are assessed in two different settings. The expenditure proxy is developed and then tested for replicability in two independent datasets representing the same population. SETTING: Rural areas of Mali, Malawi, and Cote d'Ivoire (two national surveys). PARTICIPANTS: Random sample of rural households in each setting (n=275, 707, 910, and 856, respectively). MAIN RESULTS: In both Mali and Malawi, the wealth proxy correlated highly (r>/=0.74) with the more complex monetary value method. For rural areas of Cote d'Ivoire, it was possible to generate a list of just 10 expenditure items, the values of which when summed correlated highly with expenditures on all items combined (r=0.74, development dataset, r=0. 72, validation dataset). Total household expenditure is an accepted alternative to household income in developing country settings. CONCLUSIONS: It is feasible to approximate both household wealth and expenditures in rural African settings without dramatically lengthening questionnaires that have a primary focus on health outcomes.  (+info)

End-of-life decision making: a qualitative study of elderly individuals. (4/186)

OBJECTIVE: To identify the desired features of end-of-life medical decision making from the perspective of elderly individuals. DESIGN: Qualitative study using in-depth interviews and analysis from a phenomenologic perspective. SETTING: A senior center and a multilevel retirement community in Los Angeles. PARTICIPANTS: Twenty-one elderly informants (mean age 83 years) representing a spectrum of functional status and prior experiences with end-of-life decision making. MAIN RESULTS: Informants were concerned primarily with the outcomes of serious illness rather than the medical interventions that might be used, and defined treatments as desirable to the extent they could return the patient to his or her valued life activities. Advanced age was a relevant consideration in decision making, guided by concerns about personal losses and the meaning of having lived a "full life." Decision-making authority was granted both to physicians (for their technical expertise) and family members (for their concern for the patient's interests), and shifted from physician to family as the patient's prognosis for functional recovery became grim. Expressions of care, both by patients and family members, were often important contributors to end-of-life treatment decisions. CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggest that advance directives and physician-patient discussions that focus on acceptable health states and valued life activities may be better suited to patients' end-of-life care goals than those that focus on specific medical interventions, such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation. We propose a model of collaborative surrogate decision making by families and physicians that encourages physicians to assume responsibility for recommending treatment plans, including the provision or withholding of specific life-sustaining treatments, when such recommendations are consistent with patients' and families' goals for care.  (+info)

A randomized, controlled trial of advanced care planning discussions during preoperative evaluations. (5/186)

BACKGROUND: Although many patients and physicians support the concept of advance care planning, only a small percentage of patients actually have the necessary discussion with health care providers. Hospital-based physicians other than primary care providers often are needed to increase physician, patient, and proxy communication about advanced directives. This study evaluated the effectiveness of a 5-10-min discussion designed to foster dialogue between patients and their proxies in a preoperative evaluation clinic. The discussions were lead by anesthesiologists. METHODS: A randomized controlled trial was conducted from September 1998 through May 1999 in a preoperative evaluation clinic at University of California, San Francisco, a tertiary care center. English-speaking patients aged 65 yr or older who were scheduled for elective surgery were randomized to receive a short information session stressing the importance of communication about end-of-life care between the patients and their proxies. Patients randomized to the control group received the standard preoperative anesthesia screening. An admitting counselor questioned all patients (control and intervention) about whether they have an advanced directive as part of the registration process before their arrival in clinic. RESULTS: The intervention significantly increased discussions about end-of-life care between patients and their proxies. Eighty seven percent of patients reported having discussions with their proxies as compared with only 66% of control patients (P = 0.001). The intervention also increased durable power of attorney completion rate to 27% as compared with 10% completion rate by controls. CONCLUSIONS: The preoperative evaluation period can be an opportunity to encourage patient and proxy communication about end-of-life care.  (+info)

Proxy reporting in the National Population Health Survey. (6/186)

OBJECTIVES: This article examines the extent of proxy reporting in the National Population Health Survey (NPHS). It also explores associations between proxy reporting status and the prevalence of selected health problems, and investigates the relationship between changes in proxy reporting status and two-year incidence of health problems. DATA SOURCE: Cross-sectional results are based on the 1996/97 NPHS Health file and General file. Longitudinal results are based on 1994/95 respondents who were still residing in households in 1996/97. ANALYTICAL TECHNIQUES: The extent of proxy reporting in the various NPHS files was computed. Prevalence estimates of selected health problems from the two 1996/97 cross-sectional files were compared. Multivariate analyses were used to estimate associations between proxy reporting status and health problems. MAIN RESULTS: For several health conditions, prevalence estimates based on the 1996/97 cross-sectional Health file (where proxy reporting was less common) were significantly higher than estimates derived from the General file. Individuals whose data were proxy-reported in 1994/95 and self-reported in 1996/97 had higher odds of reporting new cases of certain health conditions.  (+info)

The role of proxies in treatment decisions: evaluating functional capacity to consent to end-of-life treatments within a family context. (7/186)

Psychology as a profession has entered the arena of palliative and hospice care later in the process than other health care professions. Through the use of Familial Advance Planning Evaluations (FAPEs), however, psychologists can assist individuals and families in facing end-of-life transitions in important ways. Hospice and palliative care philosophy treats the patient and family as the unit of care. End-of-life decision-making is therefore a family matter as well as a normative developmental transition. Yet, little is known about the decision-making process. This paper reviews the literature regarding informed consent, advance care planning, and proxy decision-making and outlines a theoretical model for familial decision-making. Previous models of end-of-life capacity evaluations and family assessments are presented and serve as the basis for a comprehensive assessment of familial decision-making at the end of life. Functional capacity evaluations of individuals at the end of life regarding decisions about life-sustaining medical treatments enable both the individual patient and one identified proxy from his or her family to discuss important issues families may face during medical crises at the end of life. The information gleaned from such evaluations has the potential to assist psychologists and other professionals in designing family-specific interventions to reduce caregiving distress, improve quality of life for dying patients, and ease the transition to bereavement for caregivers.  (+info)

Family history of cancer and incidence of acute leukemia in adults. (8/186)

Family history of cancer may represent shared genetic and environmental risk factors for leukemia. The authors examined associations of first-degree family history of cancer with adult acute leukemia incidence by using data on 811 patients (or their proxies) identified at diagnosis and 637 population-based controls in the United States and Canada during 1986-1990. For proxy-interviewed patients, relative risks were elevated for family history of any cancer (relative risk = 1.7, 95% confidence interval (CI): 1.3, 2.4), hematopoietic cancer (relative risk = 1.8, 95% CI: 1.1, 3.0), leukemia (relative risk = 2.4, 95% CI: 1.3, 4.6), and breast cancer (relative risk = 1.7, 95% CI: 1.0, 3.0) but not for colorectal, prostate, or lung cancer. For self-interviewed patients, family history of hematopoietic cancer was inversely associated with leukemia incidence (relative risk = 0.6, 95% CI: 0.4, 1.1). Regardless of patient interview type, history of breast cancer in sisters was positively associated with adult acute leukemia, whereas history of breast cancer in mothers was not. The role of family history of cancer in leukemia etiology is unclear because of differential reporting by patients and proxies. Specifically, self-interviewed patients may underreport cancer in their first-degree relatives. Associations between family history of breast cancer and leukemia incidence may be the result of unmeasured, shared etiologies specific to these cancers.  (+info)

The aim of this study was two-fold; to examine patient-proxy agreement on the impact of MS on daily life at different points in time and to get more insight in patient-proxy agreement on change over time.. The positive mean differences that were found at baseline and follow-up indicated a tendency for proxy respondents to report more disease impact of MS than the patient did themselves. This tendency of reporting more symptoms and lower levels of functioning by proxy respondents compared to the patients themselves, is in line with other studies on this topic [10, 35]. In contrast to some of the other longitudinal proxy studies [13, 14, 19] we did not see an improvement in agreement over time. Mean directional differences at follow-up were actually statistically significant for both the physical and the psychological scale, which points towards systematic overestimation by proxy respondents. Effect sizes showed that the magnitude of this bias was moderate for both scales.. At both time points, ...
Ms. Whiting described how among patients with chronic conditions, the patient voice and the caregiver voice are often thought to be interchangeable. But, patient and caregiver perspectives can be very different. She described research demonstrating that if the caregiving relationship is strained, a caregiver may overstate the amount of pain a patient is facing. So there is a clear need for a more nuanced approach to identify where caregivers can help and to what degree their voice should be included in data collection.. She highlighted how the caregiver role evolves over time. For example, among young patients who may be unable to self-report, the caregiver voice may be more prominent. But, as the patient matures, they may be able to report on their own signs and symptoms, indicating that at that point a patient-reported outcome should be used. Similarly, among patients with dementia, the patient has a more prominent voice in the beginning. But, as the disease progresses, their ability to report ...
Similar to the previous situation, ethics consults are occasionally obtained when its not clear to the treating team who the surrogate decision maker is or how to navigate conflicts between decision makers. In California and by our policy, a surrogate decision maker can be anyone who knows the patient and his values well enough to make decisions on his behalf. There is no predetermined hierarchy of relationship; a neighbor may be a better surrogate than an estranged spouse who hasnt seen the patient in a decade. Its not uncommon that we find ourselves in complex family and friend relationships with multiple spouses, children, cousins, friends, and parents who all want a say in medical decision making. We hope that all the stakeholders are on the same page and work together to determine whats best for a patient, but this is rare. Especially in the intensive care unit, situations can be emotionally-laden and challenging to achieve a consensus. Furthermore, its quite important to identify a ...

This study assessed associations between preschoolers objectively measured leisure-time PA and a comprehensive set of subjective (i.e. by parent proxy-report) and objective potential PA correlates across the behavioral, social and physical environmental domains on both family- and community-level (Fig. 1) in a large sample of German preschoolers.. None of the objective community-level social and physical environmental potential correlates were associated with objectively assessed leisure-time PA. In contrast, for the family-level behavioral domain (child participation in organized sports) as well as the subjective (i.e. by parent proxy-report) family-level physical environmental domain (parental perception of neighborhood traffic safety) significant associations with MVPA and TPA were observed. These main findings were consistently seen in both the weekend and weekday afternoon samples.. No associations between PA and the objective community-level social and physical environmental factors from ...
This data collection is comprised of responses from two sets of survey questionnaires, the basic Current Population Survey (CPS) and a survey administered as a supplement to the June 2008 CPS questionnaire on the topic of Fertility.The CPS, administered monthly, collects labor force data about the civilian noninstitutional population living in the United States. Moreover, the CPS provides current estimates of the economic status and activities of this population which includes estimates of total employment (both farm and nonfarm), nonfarm self-employed persons, domestics, and unpaid helpers in nonfarm family enterprises, wage and salaried employees, and estimates of total unemployment. Data from the CPS are provided for the week prior to the administration of the survey.All females 15-44 years old that were eligible for the basic CPS survey were also eligible for the supplement survey, as applicable. Self or proxy responses were allowed for the supplement, that is a single respondent could ...
One in five deaths in the U.S. occurs in or shortly after discharge from an intensive care unit (ICU), typically following decisions made by surrogate decision makers to forego life prolonging treatment. A large body of empirical research has identified deficiencies in care processes that contribute to three important problems: 1) family members often experience poor quality communication with ICU clinicians, leading to lasting psychological distress associated with the ICU experience; 2) patients near the end of life frequently receive invasive, expensive treatment that is inconsistent with their values and preferences, and 3) end-of-life care is a major contributor to health care costs.[8, 9] Although advance care planning can prevent some unwanted treatment, many patients wish for a trial of intensive treatment when the prognosis is uncertain, and therefore it seems likely that the need for interventions to improve in-the-moment decisions by surrogates will persist.[10, 11]. In a pilot ...
Hers what I find troubling and ultimately depressing about the drinking and driving problem.. We know, without a doubt, that alcohol consumption impairs and inhibits normal human mental abilities, to which we would generically refer as judgement capacity or the ability to make rational, well-informed decisions. This is the main reason that in the medical profession (in which I work) a patients right to decide about his/her medical treatment becomes null and void if he/she is intoxicated, barring a legally-recognized surrogate decision maker that is at the bedside to accept that responsibility or a legal document stating the same (an advanced directive, etc). Thus every day in ERs across this country we are doing things (invasive things, painful things, risky things) to patients against their will because we determine that they are either intoxicated or have sustained a brain injury or are acutely psychotic (etc) and are therefore not competent to decide for themselves. Granted, what we ...

The Mental Capacity Act 2005 has provided unified scope in the British medical system for proxy consent with regard to medical decisions, in the form of a lasting power of attorney. While the intentions are to increase the autonomous decision making powers of those unable to consent, the author of this paper argues that the whole notion of proxy consent collapses into a paternalistic judgement regarding the other persons best interests and that the new legislation introduces only an advisor, not a proxy with the moral authority to make treatment decisions on behalf of another. The criticism is threefold. First, there is good empirical evidence that people are poor proxy decision makers as regards accurately representing other peoples desires and wishes, and this is therefore a pragmatically inadequate method of gaining consent. Second, philosophical theory explaining how we represent other peoples thought processes indicates that we are unlikely ever to achieve accurate simulations of others ...

One of the hardest things veterinarians have to do is to counsel owners about assessing a pets quality of life as it begins to decline. Because our animals cant verbalize their specific desires when it comes to end of life care, owners and, to a lesser extent, veterinarians are forced into the role of proxy decision makers. We have the ability to extend or end a sick or injured pets life, and deciding what he or she would want under the circumstances is never easy.. Quality of life (QoL) surveys are helpful during this difficult time. They can focus our attention on the most important aspects of what the patient is experiencing. A single QoL survey provides some information, particularly at the extremes of the contentment - suffering continuum, but these tools really shine when they are performed on a frequent and regular basis. In this way, current scores can be compared to those taken in the past. Owners and veterinarians can then more easily pick up trends and address problems before they ...
The law allows for different ways to handle the finances of the person under tutorship depending on the state of the persons illness and the extent of his/her personal fortune. For example, if there is a close relative who is willing to accept the responsibility, the judge can designate him/her as legal administrator under judicial control without appointing a surrogate tutor or family council (article 497). A family council is not usually necessary unless the fortune is particularly large or there are serious problems between family members.. Depending on the type of marriage contract that a married person previously drew up, it might not be necessary to appoint the spouse as tutor as s/he would already have the authority to take care of the persons interests (article 498).. Another option is to appoint a manager (gérant de la tutelle) instead of a surrogate tutor or family council. This solution is often used if the person has no family or if the family is disinterested or unsuitable to ...
The Dementia Risk Assessment (DRA) is an online tool consisting of questions about known risk factors for dementia, a novel verbal memory test, and an informant report of cognitive decline. Its primary goal is to educate the public about dementia risk factors and encourage clinical evaluation where appropriate. In Study 1, more than 3,000 anonymous persons over age 50 completed the DRA about themselves; 1,000 people also completed proxy reports about another person. Advanced age, lower education, male sex, complaints of severe memory impairment, and histories of cerebrovascular disease, Parkinsons disease, and brain tumor all contributed significantly to poor memory performance. A high correlation was obtained between proxy-reported decline and actual memory test performance. In Study 2, 52 persons seeking first-time evaluation at dementia clinics completed the DRA prior to their visits. Their responses (and those of their proxy informants) were compared to the results of independent evaluation by

Results: Four fundamental themes that include global concerns related to this vulnerable population were identified and found to influence proxy decision making. Decisions made by proxies that related to two major areas of concern - end-of-life decision making and access to ...
Based on early discussion with the TEP, a decision was made to replace the domain client satisfaction specified in the language of the DRA with the broader concept of client experience. Unlike satisfaction, experience comprises both objective (Do you know the name of your case manager) and subjective (Is your case manager helpful?) assessments of program services and supports. Furthermore, client experience data capture a broader array of outcomes and are not influenced solely by an individuals personal metric.. The subjectivity of satisfaction measures makes them challenging for individuals with cognitive disabilities and precludes (or may preclude) data collection from proxy sources. While, by definition, client experience measures are derived from client-reported data, arguments can be made for using knowledgeable proxy respondents when clients are unable to respond for themselves. At the same time, proxy respondents can introduce potential biases that must be recognized.14,15 In our ...

Annually resolved coral delta O-18 and Sr/Ca records from southwestern Puerto Rico are used to investigate Caribbean climate variability between 1751 and 2004 C. E. Mean surface ocean temperatures in this region have increased steadily by about 2 degrees C since the year 1751, with Sr/Ca data indicating 2.1 +/- 0.8 degrees C and delta O-18 data indicating 2.7 +/- 0.5 degrees C. Coral geochemical records from across the tropics demonstrate that regional variability is important for understanding climate variations at centennial time scales. A strong multidecadal salinity signal in the oxygen isotope data correlates with observed multidecadal temperature variations in the Northern Hemisphere. Instrumental wind and precipitation data indicate that the most recent coral isotopic variations are caused by expansion and contraction of the steep regional salinity gradient, forced by trade wind anomalies through meridional Ekman transport. The timing of the fluctuations suggests that the ...
Undiagnosed and untreated pain is a serious and frequent problem in persons with advanced dementia, leading to behavioural problems, such as decrease in daily functioning, sleep problems, depression and apathy. In many ways, pain therefore can negatively influence quality of life (QoL). Although pain is difficult to assess in persons with advanced dementia, the impact on QoL is believed to be huge. The long-term care facility (LTCF) organisations of the University Network of the Care sector South Holland (UNC-ZH) find their biggest challenge in preserving QoL in the course of dementia. Until now, there are no proven effective interventions on QoL in persons with dementia in LTCF, as was recently established in a systematic review. However, several interventions are effective in diminishing mediators (such as challenging behaviour and depressed mood) of QoL, including pharmacological treatment of pain. In a large Norwegian nursing home trial, pain treatment was effective in improving agitated ...
The second edition of this internationally acclaimed title is the ideal handbook for those involved in conducting epidemiological research. The objective of most epidemiological studies is to relate exposure to putative causal agents to the occurrence of a particular disease. The achievement of this objective depends critically on accurate measurement of exposure. This book reviews principles and techniques that can be applied to measuring a wide range of exposures, including demographic, behavioral, medical, genetic, and environmental factors. The book covers questionnaire design, conducting personal interviews, abstracting information from medical records, use of proxy respondents, and measurements from human specimens and in the environment. It gives a comprehensive account of measurement error and the estimation of its effects, and the design, analysis, and interpretation of validity and reliability studies. Emphasis is given to the ways in which the validity of measurements can be ...

The changes that made XSLT functions inaccessible to saxon:evaluate() were actually introduced in 7.2 or 7.3, I think, as part of the changes towards separation of the compile-time and run-time environment. Its true that XPath 2.0 includes the document function, but I havent yet made the changes to Saxon that remove its dependency on the XSLT environment (which isnt accessible to saxon:evaluate). But if I understand your problem correctly, the document() function can be called outside the saxon:evaluate. Just change it to: ,xsl:apply-templates select=document(@url)/saxon:evaluate(concat(//,@element))/, Better still, dont use evaluate at all, write ,xsl:apply-templates select=document(@url)//*[name()=current()/@element]/, Michael Kay Software AG home: [email protected] work: [email protected] , -----Original Message----- , From: [email protected] , [mailto:[email protected]] On Behalf Of , Craeg K Strong , Sent: 19 February 2003 09:28 , To: [email protected] , Subject: [saxon] ...
