Nurses and nursing in primary medical care in England. (1/50730)

In 1974 we sent questionnaires on attachment and employment of nurses to 9214 general practices in England. There were 7863 replies (85%), of which 551 were excluded from the study. A total of 2654 nurses were directly employed by 24% (1774) of the practices, and 68% (4972) had attached nurses. Practices in health centres were larger and had greater nursing resources than those in other premises. We suggest that practices may employ nurses to compensate for ineffective nursing attachments, and we conclude that general-practice-employed nurses are becoming "professionalised".  (+info)

Helicobacter pylori infection, garlic intake and precancerous lesions in a Chinese population at low risk of gastric cancer. (2/50730)

BACKGROUND: Cangshan County of Shandong Province has one of the lowest rates of gastric cancer (GC) in China. While intestinal metaplasia (IM) and dysplasia (DYS) are less common in Cangshan than in areas of Shandong at high risk of GC, these precursor lesions nevertheless affect about 20% of adults age > or = 55. SUBJECTS AND SETTING: In order to evaluate determinants of IM and DYS in Cangshan County, a low risk area of GC a survey was conducted among 214 adults who participated in a gastroscopic screening survey in Cangshan County in 1994. METHOD: A dietary interview and measurement of serum Helicobacter pylori antibodies were performed. RESULTS: The prevalence of H. pylori was lowest (19%) among those with normal gastric mucosa, rising steadily to 35% for superficial gastritis (SG), 56% for chronic atrophic gastritis (CAG), 80% for IM, and 100% for DYS. The prevalence odds of precancerous lesions were compared with the odds of normal histology or SG. The odds ratio (OR) or CAG associated with H. pylori positivity was 4.2 (95% confidence interval [CI] : 1.7-10.0), while the OR of IM/DYS associated with H. pylori positivity was 31.5 (95% CI: 5.2-187). After adjusting for H. pylori infection, drinking alcohol was a risk factor for CAG (OR = 3.2, 95% CI: 1.1-9.2) and IM/DYS (OR = 7.8, 95% CI: 1.3-47.7). On the other hand, consumption of garlic showed non-significant protective effects and an inverse association with H. pylori infection. CONCLUSIONS: The findings of this study suggest that infection with H. pylori is a risk factor and garlic may be protective, in the development and progression of advanced precancerous gastric lesions in an area of China at relatively low risk of GC.  (+info)

Health status of Persian Gulf War veterans: self-reported symptoms, environmental exposures and the effect of stress. (3/50730)

BACKGROUND: Most US troops returned home from the Persian Gulf War (PGW) by Spring 1991 and many began reporting increased health symptoms and medical problems soon after. This investigation examines the relationships between several Gulf-service environmental exposures and health symptom reporting, and the role of traumatic psychological stress on the exposure-health symptom relationships. METHODS: Stratified, random samples of two cohorts of PGW veterans, from the New England area (n = 220) and from the New Orleans area (n = 71), were selected from larger cohorts being followed longitudinally since arrival home from the Gulf. A group of PGW-era veterans deployed to Germany (n = 50) served as a comparison group. The study protocol included questionnaires, a neuropsychological test battery, an environmental interview, and psychological diagnostic interviews. This report focuses on self-reported health symptoms and exposures of participants who completed a 52-item health symptom checklist and a checklist of environmental exposures. RESULTS: The prevalence of reported symptoms was greater in both Persian Gulf-deployed cohorts compared to the Germany cohort. Analyses of the body-system symptom scores (BSS), weighted to account for sampling design, and adjusted by age, sex, and education, indicated that Persian Gulf-deployed veterans were more likely to report neurological, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, cardiac, dermatological, musculoskeletal, psychological and neuropsychological system symptoms than Germany veterans. Using a priori hypotheses about the toxicant effects of exposure to specific toxicants, the relationships between self-reported exposures and body-system symptom groupings were examined through multiple regression analyses, controlling for war-zone exposure and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Self-reported exposures to pesticides, debris from Scuds, chemical and biological warfare (CBW) agents, and smoke from tent heaters each were significantly related to increased reporting of specific predicted BSS groupings. CONCLUSIONS: Veterans deployed to the Persian Gulf have higher self-reported prevalence of health symptoms compared to PGW veterans who were deployed only as far as Germany. Several Gulf-service environmental exposures are associated with increased health symptom reporting involving predicted body-systems, after adjusting for war-zone stressor exposures and PTSD.  (+info)

Socioeconomic inequalities in health in the working population: the contribution of working conditions. (4/50730)

BACKGROUND: The aim was to study the impact of different categories of working conditions on the association between occupational class and self-reported health in the working population. METHODS: Data were collected through a postal survey conducted in 1991 among inhabitants of 18 municipalities in the southeastern Netherlands. Data concerned 4521 working men and 2411 working women and included current occupational class (seven classes), working conditions (physical working conditions, job control, job demands, social support at work), perceived general health (very good or good versus less than good) and demographic confounders. Data were analysed with logistic regression techniques. RESULTS: For both men and women we observed a higher odds ratio for a less than good perceived general health in the lower occupational classes (adjusted for confounders). The odds of a less than good perceived general health was larger among people reporting more hazardous physical working conditions, lower job control, lower social support at work and among those in the highest category of job demands. Results were similar for men and women. Men and women in the lower occupational classes reported more hazardous physical working conditions and lower job control as compared to those in higher occupational classes. High job demands were more often reported in the higher occupational classes, while social support at work was not clearly related to occupational class. When physical working conditions and job control were added simultaneously to a model with occupational class and confounders, the odds ratios for occupational classes were reduced substantially. For men, the per cent change in the odds ratios for the occupational classes ranged between 35% and 83%, and for women between 35% and 46%. CONCLUSIONS: A substantial part of the association between occupational class and a less than good perceived general health in the working population could be attributed to a differential distribution of hazardous physical working conditions and a low job control across occupational classes. This suggests that interventions aimed at improving these working conditions might result in a reduction of socioeconomic inequalities in health in the working population.  (+info)

Permanent work incapacity, mortality and survival without work incapacity among occupations and social classes: a cohort study of ageing men in Geneva. (5/50730)

METHODS: Men were included if they resided in the Canton of Geneva, were 45 years of age in 1970-1972, and were not receiving a disability pension at the start of the follow-up. The cohort of 5137 men was followed up for 20 years and linked to national registers of disability pension allowance and of causes of death. RESULTS: There was a steep upward trend in incidence of permanent work incapacity with lower social class for all causes as well as for the seven causes of disability studied. Compared with professional occupations (social class I), the relative risk (RR) of permanent work incapacity was 11.4 for partly skilled and unskilled occupations (class IV+V) (95% confidence interval [CI]: 5.2-28.0). The social class gradient in mortality was in the same direction as that in work incapacity although much less steep (RR class IV+V to class I = 1.6, 95% CI : 1.1-2.2). Survival without work incapacity at the time of the 65th birthday ranged from only 57% in construction workers and labourers to 89% in science and related professionals. Unemployment in Geneva was below 1.5% during almost all the study period. CONCLUSIONS: Medically-ascertained permanent work incapacity and survival without work incapacity have shown considerably greater socioeconomic differentials than the mortality differentials.  (+info)

Demographic, clinical and social factors associated with human immunodeficiency virus infection and other sexually transmitted diseases in a cohort of women from the United Kingdom and Ireland. MRC Collaborative Study of women with HIV. (6/50730)

BACKGROUND: Clinical experience suggests many women with HIV infection have experienced no other sexually transmitted diseases (STD). Our objective was to test the hypothesis that a substantial proportion of women with HIV infection in the United Kingdom and Ireland have experienced no other diagnosed STD and to describe the demographic, clinical and social factors associated with the occurrence of other STD in a cohort of HIV infected women. METHOD: Analysis of cross-sectional baseline data from a prospective study of 505 women with diagnosed HIV infection. The setting was 15 HIV treatment centres in the United Kingdom and Ireland. The main outcome measures were occurrence of other STD diagnosed for the first time before and after HIV diagnosis. Data were obtained from interview with women and clinic notes. We particularly focused on occurrence of gonorrhoea, chlamydia and trichomoniasis after HIV diagnosis, as these are the STD most likely to reflect recent unprotected sexual intercourse. RESULTS: The women were mainly infected via heterosexual sex (n = 304), and injection drug use (n = 174). 151 were black Africans. A total of 250 (49.5%) women reported never having been diagnosed with an STD apart from HIV, 255 (50.5%) women had ever experienced an STD besides HIV, including 109 (21.6%) who had their first other STD diagnosed after HIV. Twenty-five (5%) women reported having had chlamydia, gonorrhoea or trichomoniasis diagnosed for the first time after HIV diagnosis, possibly reflecting unprotected sexual intercourse since HIV diagnosis. In all 301 (60%) women reported having had sex with a man in the 6 months prior to entry to the study. Of these, 168 (58%) reported using condoms 'always', 66(23%) 'sometimes' and 56 (19%) 'never'. CONCLUSIONS: Half the women in this study reported having never experienced any other diagnosed STD besides HIV. However, after HIV diagnosis most women remain sexually active and at least 5% had an STD diagnosed which reflect unprotected sexual intercourse.  (+info)

Pregnancy, body weight and human immunodeficiency virus infection in African women: a prospective cohort study in Kigali (Rwanda), 1992-1994. Pregnancy and HIV Study Group (EGE). (7/50730)

OBJECTIVE: To study the relationship between human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and body weight in African women during and after pregnancy. METHODS: A prospective cohort study was initiated at the Centre Hospitalier de Kigali in July 1992. Every woman seen at the antenatal clinic and with a gestational age of <28 weeks was offered HIV-1 antibody testing. Comparable numbers of HIV-infected (HIV+) and uninfected (HIV-) women were recruited. At inclusion, socio-demographic characteristics and self-reported pre-pregnancy weight were recorded; height and weight were measured. Each woman enrolled had a monthly follow-up until 9 months after delivery, with a clinical examination including weighing. Three anthropometric indices were used to answer the study objectives: weight, body mass index (BMI), and pregnancy balance. RESULTS: As of April 1994, 101 HIV+ and 106 HIV- women were followed until 5 months after delivery. Weight and BMI during pregnancy were lower in HIV+ women than in HIV- women. After delivery, weight and BMI gains were significantly lower in HIV+ women. Until 5 months after delivery, the mean weight variation was -2.2 kg (standard deviation [SD] = 5.9 kg) in HIV+ women and +0.2 kg (SD = 6.6 kg) in HIV- women (P = 0.007) in comparison to pre-pregnancy weight. Comparisons of the slopes of the weight curves did not show statistical differences throughout the pregnancy, but it did during the post-partum period (P = 0.02). CONCLUSIONS: Our study suggests that HIV infection could impair nutritional status in pregnant women, especially during the post-partum period. Family planning and maternal and child health services including HIV testing and counselling, should consider a nutritional assessment and intervention programme targeted to HIV+ pregnant women.  (+info)

Cluster survey evaluation of coverage and risk factors for failure to be immunized during the 1995 National Immunization Days in Egypt. (8/50730)

BACKGROUND: In 1995, Egypt continued to experience endemic wild poliovirus transmission despite achieving high routine immunization coverage with at least three doses of oral poliovirus vaccine (OPV3) and implementing National Immunization Days (NIDs) annually for several years. METHODS: Parents of 4188 children in 3216 households throughout Egypt were surveyed after the second round of the 1995 NIDs. RESULTS: Nationwide, 74% of children are estimated to have received both NID doses, 17% one NID dose, and 9% neither NID dose. Previously unimmunized (47%) or partially immunized (64%) children were less likely to receive two NID doses of OPV than were fully immunized children (76%) (P < 0.001). Other risk factors nationwide for failure to receive NID OPV included distance from residence to nearest NID site >10 minute walk (P < 0.001), not being informed about the NID at least one day in advance (P < 0.001), and residing in a household which does not watch television (P < 0.001). Based on these findings, subsequent NIDs in Egypt were modified to improve coverage, which has resulted in a marked decrease in the incidence of paralytic poliomyelitis in Egypt. CONCLUSIONS: In selected situations, surveys can provide important information that is useful for planning future NIDs.  (+info)

Objective. To design a questionnaire to assess cognitive representations of mental health problems held by people diagnosed with schizophrenia. Background. Personal beliefs about health problems have been reliably associated with emotional and behavioural responses to those health problems and health outcomes. This area has been extensively explored in relation to physical health, but somewhat neglected in mental health. In this study, a questionnaire designed to assess key beliefs about physical illness (the Illness Perception Questionnaire-Revised) was modified for use in exploring beliefs about schizophrenia. The new measure was termed the Illness Perception Questionnaire for Schizophrenia (IPQS). Method. Participants were 124 people with a diagnosis of schizophrenia who completed the IPQS and additional measures to assess symptom severity, emotional state, and attitudes towards medication. The psychometric properties of the IPQS were analysed, including internal consistency, test-retest ...

STATISTICAL PRIMER State Center For Health Statistics Department of Human Resources • Division of Health Services • P.O. Box 2091 • Raleigh, NC 27602-2091 • 919/733^728 No. 7 o j October 1986 N.C QUESTIONNAIRE DESIGN by J. Michael Bowling ABSTRACT An overview of the survey process is presented with special emphasis on questionnaire design. Topics covered are types ofquestions, structure of questions, question wording, and questionnaire construction. This information should help persons in state and local agencies to collect better data through more effective questionnaire design and implementation. The collection, processing, and dissemination of information have become increasingly important to the health care provider, researcher, and administrator faced with competing alternatives for the expenditure of scarce resources. Sample survey design, once relegated by many students to the dusty shelf of pedagogic esoterica, has become a useful tool to a more diverse group of data users ...
PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to examine the correspondence between qualitative and quantitative methods of coding experience of pain reported by participants with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee. METHODS: A mapping grid was produced to record the correspondence between subthemes that emerged from thematic analysis of interviews with 24 participants with knee OA, and from questionnaire items which were used in a study of 192 knee OA participants. Items were rated according to their degree of correspondence between subthemes and questionnaire items, and an overall correspondence score was produced for each subtheme and questionnaire measure. RESULTS: The subthemes that corresponded well with the questionnaire items were those that related to socio-emotional functioning, the overall experience of pain and the impact of pain on physical functioning. The questionnaire items did not relate to participants knowledge about their condition and their experience of the medical system. CONCLUSIONS: ...
Personality in dogs have been studied relatively extensive the last couple of years with various methods. One of these methods is questionnaire for owners to fill in. A credible and well working questionnaire is characterized by a high reliability and validity. In this study three different questionnaires, MCPQ-R, DPQ and C-BARQ have been used and compared. Dog owners were asked to fill in all three questionnaires for their dog. Correlation between factors in the questionnaires and differences between age groups, breeds and sexes were analyzed to see if these questionnaires differed from each other. The result indicated various correlations that were both expected and unexpected as well as differences between age groups, breeds and sexes. Factors from all three questionnaires were sometimes considered more reliable than the other but DPQ had the most reliable ones. In the comparison between breeds no factor from C-BARQ was significant while several from the DPQ were. These factors also showed a ...

Translated versions of neck-specific questionnaires have been evaluated in 15 different languages. Generally the methodological quality of the translation process is poor, which was mainly due to the fact that the translated version was not pre-tested in the target population. Furthermore, none of the included studies performed a cross-cultural validation. This is necessary to evaluate whether the constructs underlying the original questionnaire are represented adequately by the questionnaire items in the new language. For each questionnaire, except for the Iranian NPDS and Spanish NDI, at least half of the information regarding measurement properties was lacking. Moreover, the evidence for the quality of measurement properties of the translated versions is mostly limited, due to methodological shortcomings of the included studies.. The COSMIN checklist has recently been developed and is based on consensus between experts in the field of health status questionnaires [9]. The COSMIN checklist ...

Objective Initiatives promoting the reduction of high-salt food consumption by consumers need to be partly based on current levels of salt knowledge in the population. However, to date there is no validated salt knowledge questionnaire that could be used to assess population knowledge about dietary salt (i.e. salt knowledge). Therefore, the aim of the present study was to develop and validate a salt knowledge questionnaire. Design A cross-sectional study was conducted on an online web survey platform using convenience, snowball sampling. The survey questionnaire was evaluated for content and face validity before being administered to the respondents. Setting Online survey. Subjects A total of forty-one nutrition experts, thirty-two nutrition students and thirty-six lay people participated in the study. Results Item analyses were performed to evaluate the psychometric properties of the test items. Twenty-five items were retained to form the final set of questions. The total scores of the experts were
A self-administered, health history questionnaire devised for routine use in a general medical clinic is completed without the assistance of clinic personnel and used, unedited, by the providers. The reliability and validity of the responses of 23 patients to this questionnaire were tested statistically. In our setting, more than 90 percent of the patients referred for care are capable of completing the questionnaire. The 23 patients averaged 32 minutes to complete the questionnaire. An average of 34 minutes of encounter time is required to obtain the same historical data by interview. Test-retest reliability of patients responses to the questionnaire was 90 percent. More than 92 percent of the patients written responses to health history items agreed with the data obtained in a blinded fashion by internists in the traditional interview. The questionnaire accurately obtains items of history frequently missing from the recorded ambulabory care data base, and in some instances obtains items of ...
A total of 259 Mexican-American, bilingual women (English and Spanish), were recruited for the initial psychometric testing phase of the MBAQ and SMBAQ. The psychometric testing of the MBAQ and SMBAQ included the following steps: a) an estimate of the internal consistency reliability, utilizing Cronbachs alpha reliability coefficient, b) factor analysis, using principal components analysis with Varimax rotation, and c) paired t-test comparison of the means of the MBAQ and SMBAQ to establish their equivalence.. The sample size of 259 women was determined according to the formula of calculating 10 participants per item on a questionnaire (Nunnally & Bernstein, 1994). Since there were 25 items on both the MBAQ and SMBAQ, 250 participants were recruited into the study plus an additional nine participants to allow for questionnaires that would need to be eliminated because of incomplete or missing data on questionnaire items. Inclusion criteria for participants in the initial psychometric testing of ...
This questionnaire is an alternative to using the MYMOP questions on medication. It makes a much more detailed and accurate record of medication and medication change.. People themselves know best what medication they actually take each day, and the MCQ provides them with a simple structured form on which to record their medication use for seven days. The MCQ can be repeated after treatment to assess change.. It has been developed and tested with the help of a team of researchers and patients. This is described in the papers on the MCQ publications page. Further evaluations of the questionnaire are planned and feedback from users is very welcome..

In recent years the availability of high-quality, inexpensive RDTs in the public sector has significantly improved and expanded diagnostic testing. In malaria endemic countries, approximately 40% of the population seeks care and treatment for febrile illnesses in the private sector. In such settings, successful malaria control greatly depends on effective diagnosis and treatment within the private sector. Interventions may seek to address diagnostic market constraints, quality-assured ACT treatment market constraints, or both.. In all cases, robust evidence on the quality of provider fever case management is vital to monitor and course-correct programming, and formally evaluate programs. As a part of the Unitaid-funded Private Sector RDT project, PSI regularly fielded client exit interviews and mystery client visits to assess provider quality.. The Fever case management Mystery client study questionnaire is used to assess provider adherence to fever treatment algorithms for malaria test-negative ...

Most problems with questionnaire analysis can be traced back to the design phase of the project. Well-defined goals are the best way to assure a good questionnaire design. When the goals of a study can be expressed in a few clear and concise sentences, the design of the questionnaire becomes considerably easier. The questionnaire is developed to directly address the goals of the study.. One of the best ways to clarify your study goals is to decide how you intend to use the information. Do this before you begin designing the study. This sounds obvious, but many researchers neglect this task. Why do research if the results will not be used? Be sure to commit the study goals to writing. Whenever you are unsure of a question, refer to the study goals and a solution will become clear. Ask only questions that directly address the study goals. Avoid the temptation to ask questions because it would be interesting to know.. As a general rule, with only a few exceptions, long questionnaires get less ...

The results of this study show that, in comparison with the "gold standard" CRQ-IL, the CRQ-SR detects similar levels of fatigue, mastery, and emotional function. Cook et al,13 in their comparison of the interviewer and self-reported formats of the Asthma Quality of Life Questionnaire, concluded that questionnaires which are designed to ascertain problems and dysfunction in patients with chronic illness produce similar results even when using different questionnaire formats. The results of our study are consistent with this finding, particularly for the standardised dimensions of emotional function, fatigue, and mastery.. In the comparison of the two different formats of the CRQ, patients were not informed of their dyspnoea responses from the CRQ-IL when they completed the CRQ-SR. It is therefore not surprising that we found a significant difference between the mean scores for the dyspnoea dimension (although the difference did not reach the threshold of the minimum clinically important ...
A user experience questionnaire is deceptively simple: its just a standard list of questions for you to ask yourself about a product or user experience at the start of any engagement.Why not just start working on the user experience and see where things go? In theory, if a product has a clear purpose and a specific audience, and you have some good ideas for how to improve the user experience, then youre all set. Of course, product design can go off track for any number of reasons. UX work, in particular, often is brought in as a silver bullet to solve what can be a dizzying set of challenges, ranging from lack of product strategy to issues with the organizational structure. The user interface is often where these problems become visible.. A good user experience questionnaire can help you spot issues early on, which puts you in a better position to point out all those red flags and prevent them from putting the design at risk. On a more practical level, a user experience questionnaire can also ...

Online research surveys has its own shapes and forms - marketing, academic studies, customer experience and satisfaction and so on. However, the most fundamental and success-determining factor amongst all surveys is their quality of questionnaire.. Companies often invest heavily in purchasing survey samples, however, no matter how strong respondent database is, its the questionnaire that plays the biggest role. Think of it as a marketing pitch. If your pitch is right, then even the toughest prospects crack and you make a sale. If the pitch is weak, then even the strongest sales leads may fail.. Demystify your target audience. Even before you kick-start brainstorming your survey questionnaire, what you need to be clear about is your target audience. Then ask yourself - Do these respondents fall under the same demographics or do they vary? If they vary, do the questions need to be the same or different? If different, should there be different questionnaire links or the same link that branches out ...

OBJECTIVE: Health-related websites have developed to be much more than information sites: they are used to exchange experiences and find support as well as information and advice. This paper documents the development of a tool to compare the potential consequences and experiences a person may encounter when using health-related websites. METHODS: Questionnaire items were developed following a review of relevant literature and qualitative secondary analysis of interviews relating to experiences of health. Item reduction steps were performed on pilot survey data (n=167). Tests of validity and reliability were subsequently performed (n=170) to determine the psychometric properties of the questionnaire. RESULTS: Two independent item pools entered psychometric testing: (1) Items relating to general views of using the internet in relation to health and, (2) Items relating to the consequences of using a specific health-related website. Identified sub-scales were found to have high construct validity, internal

Exploring UK attitudes towards unlicensed medicines use: a questionnaire-based study of members of the general public and physicians Alison ChisholmOmega Scientific, Yately, UKAims: To undertake a questionnaire-based study to evaluate attitudes towards the use of unlicensed medicines among prescribing doctors and members of the general public (ie, patients). The study also aimed to explore the factors that influence physicians' prescribing decisions and priorities, and to understand the knowledge of the medicines licensing system among members of the public.Methods: Novartis Pharmaceuticals UK Ltd funded the online interview of 500 members of the general public and 249 prescribing physicians. Best practice standards were followed for questionnaire-based studies; no specific treatments or conditions were mentioned or discussed.Results: Few of the participating physicians, only 14%, were very familiar with the UK General Medical Council (GMC) guidelines on the use of unlicensed medicines and just 17%
Objectives. This study examined the impact of the job strain model on exercise and healthy eating within the framework of the Theory of Planned Behaviour. Design. Participants completed a questionnaire measuring the components of the Theory of Planned Behaviour and the job strain model. A follow-up questionnaire a week later measured behaviour. Method. The questionnaires were completed by e-mail. The initial questionnaire was completed by 331 employees, and 286 follow-up questionnaires were returned. Results. job demands affected exercise indirectly by lowering perceptions of behavioural control over exercise. However, variables from the job strain model were not related to exercise intentions or behaviour. In contrast, employees in passive jobs intended to eat more sweets and snack foods and employees in low strain jobs were more likely to realize their intentions to eat more sweets and snack foods. However, variables from the job strain model did not influence consumption of fruit and ...

Purpose: To develop a Thai questionnaire ชีวิตและสุขภาพของวัยรุ่นในประเทศไทย (TYQ) to explore girls and boys living conditions, lifestyles and self-reported health with special focus on sexuality, based on a Swedish questionnaire Liv & Hälsa ung (SYQ). Challenges in developing a youth questionnaire for comparative studies are described. Design: A multi-step translation, socio-cultural adaptation procedure and a mixed-method validation test were performed using English as a common language within the research group. Three versions of SYQ were used as a pool of questions to develop the questionnaire. Findings: From a field-test, unclear questions were identified and minor adjustments made. Life & Health Young people in a Thai version was successfully developed. The English version was used to bridge the language gap. Conclusion: This unique multi-step methodology, including mixed-method validation procedure, can be used by ...

A high-quality questionnaire is a key element of a successful survey. Therefore, Eurofound invests heavily in the development and translation of its questionnaires. Content A total of 104 questions and 262 items are available in the EQLS 2016. The questionnaire from the previous survey was reviewed in consultation with both policy stakeholders and experts in survey research. Some 66% of the EQLS 2011 questionnaire was kept as trend questions, while 51% of the EQLS 2016 questionnaire is comparable with earlier rounds.
The modified simple questions may be used to classify surviving patients into one of three hierarchical outcome groups. About half of the independent patients were left with significant problems as a consequence of the stroke. This illustrates the ceiling effect with simple measures of disability that focus exclusively on activities of daily living- that is, if the dependency question was the only measure of outcome, then other significant limitations (for example, problems with communication, household maintenance, and social and psychological functioning) would not be captured. Additional assessments of health are therefore required in independent patients who might otherwise be considered as having achieved a "good outcome" after their stroke. The statistically distinct profile of scores for this group of patients with the standard instruments support the validity of this hierarchical classification.. The validity of this classification is further supported by its close relation with ...
As a result of identifying issues and ideas at various village events over the previous two years a questionnaire was devised and distributed door to door through the village and surrounding parish in February 2015.

The present study finds high internal consistency of the Swedish PEI version at both baseline and follow-up. There was a clear tendency, both at the total and single-item level, for scores to decline between baseline and the first follow-up and to be more consistent between the first and second follow-ups. Two questions were characterised as less relevant, and they also deviated more from the total score than the other questions.. The adequacy of using the PEI as a quality measure has been a matter of discussion [7,13]. The present study shows high internal consistency for all three questionnaires, as was the case for previous versions of the PEI [2,3,5]. Cronbachs alpha of slightly below 0.9 indicates that the Swedish version can be used for research purposes but is not appropriate for individual clinical use, where 0.95 is desirable [14]. Thus, we do not believe that the instrument should be used to compare quality of care between clinics or individual doctors but is entirely suitable for ...

S Wielding and A Scott Chalmers Centre, NHS Lothian, Edinburgh, UK. Background: 229 women attend Chalmers Centre (a city-centre integrated sexual health centre) for their HIV care and treatment. Local third sector agencies provide peer support but anecdotally it is not well utilised and some demographic groups are under-represented. The study aims to gain better understanding of the background social characteristics of these women, to ascertain what issues they are affected by, and to better identify additional support required and how this should be facilitated. Methods: An anonymous self-completion questionnaire was developed and all women attending HIV clinics between July and November 2015 were given the opportunity to participate. Additional data were accessed from the National Sexual Health (NaSH) database on cohort size and gender based violence (GBV) enquiries.. Results: 44 women living with HIV (WLWH) completed the questionnaire representing 53.7% of women attending the service during ...

Patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) are standardised, validated questionnaires that are completed by patients to measure their perceptions of their own functional status and wellbeing. Many such measures were originally designed for assessing treatment effectiveness in the context of clinical trials,1 but are now used more widely to assess patient perspectives of care outcomes. This outcomes based definition of PROMs distinguishes them from questionnaires used to measure patients experience of the care process.. PROMs are designed to measure either patients perceptions of their general health ("generic" health status) or their perceptions of their health in relation to specific diseases or conditions. The short form 36 (SF-36) health survey,2 for example, is a generic questionnaire that assesses self perceived health status by using 36 questions relating to eight broad areas (or "domains") of wellbeing. Examples of condition specific questionnaires include the Parkinsons disease ...

This simple questionnaire has been created by IFLA and IASA to create a new global register of Legal Deposit for audiovisual materials, country by country. It should take no more than 10 minutes of your time. Please complete the questions below for one country, then press the Submit button.. Audiovisual materials in this context means: all types of moving images, whether film, video or TV; and all sound materials whether published, unpublished or broadcast. It excludes photographs.. Why this survey? Our audiovisual heritage needs to be preserved in order to provide universal access to information. But there is little information on the state of legal deposit for audiovisual documents around the world. This survey does not intend to collate comprehensive details; rather, it will give an indication of the existence (or not) of legal deposit in each country with links to further information. We hope that such information on worldwide practices will help individual countries to obtain or improve ...

As a general rule, long questionnaires get less response than short questionnaires. However, some studies have shown that the length of a questionnaire does not necessarily affect response. More important than length is question content. A subject is more likely to respond if they are involved and interested in the research topic. Questions should be meaningful and interesting to the respondent. When conducting Internet surveys, try to make the pages short enough so they appear in one screen that requires minimal scrolling. Respondents answers are recorded only when a submit button is pressed. If your pages are too long, and the respondent doesnt complete a page, their answers for that page will not be captured.. ...

The total questionnaire response rate was 37.4% (n=336/899); however, some participants did not respond to some of the questions. As a result, the sum of the response rate for the individual questions does not always equal the sum of the response rate for the survey.. Of the respondents, 76.7% (n=262/333 respondents) used the CPAx in clinical practice. The majority of these were in the UK (n=226). In England, there was at least one clinician from 43.3% of all adult acute National Health Service (NHS) trusts (n=68/157); further users were in Ireland, Switzerland, the USA, Australia, South Africa and Canada..

We wanted to know what they like because when we are making our film opening we want to include all the things which the audience would like and what would keep them interested and want to know what happens. For example one of the questions we asked was what are your expectations when watching a comedy/horror film? The most popular answer to this was blood/gore which means when we are making our film opening we are going to include over the top and dramatic blood/gore scenes with a twist. We were also able to discover that the audience is humoured by silly costumes, slapstick and murders when they are watching a comedy/horror film ...

In 2015-16, across England and Wales, 62.6 per cent of students in state-funded schools achieved A*-C grades in both GCSE English and GCSE mathematics, a key success indicator for schools. The percentage of students entering further education (FE) colleges the following year with both A*-C grades in GCSE English and GCSE mathematics was 34 per cent. In other words, FE colleges pick up large numbers of students from local schools who achieved less well than their peers; the ones who stay in sixth form and take A-levels.. It is a role FE colleges play that is largely unacknowledged by government and the media. Students typically stay at college for two years, during which time it is expected that they are transformed, on mass, into the skilled workforce the country is crying out for.. What the Government says it wants from its further education sector is that it produces the skilled workforce the country needs to compete in a global marketplace. What the Government really wants, is that FE ...

This study examined the psychometric properties of the Revised Illness Perception Questionnaire adapted for a clinical sample of low-income Latinos suffering from depression. Participants (N = 339) were recruited from public primary care centers. Their average age was 49.73 years and the majority was foreign born females of either Mexican or Central American descent. Confirmatory factor analysis was used to test the factor structure of this measure. Construct and discriminant validity and internal consistency were evaluated. After the elimination of three items because of low factor loadings (| .40) and the specification of seven error covariances, a revised model composed of 24 items had adequate goodness-of-fit indices and factor loadings, supporting construct validity. Each of the subscales reported satisfactory internal consistency. Intercorrelations between the 5 illness perception factors provided initial support for the discriminant validity of these factors in the context of depression. The

Workforce planning is a central issue for service provision and has consequences for medical education. Much work has been examined the career intentions, career preferences and career destinations of UK medical graduates but there is little published about medical students career intentions.
