This study found that children with a chronic illness and higher verbal IQ understood and retained significantly less of a simple explanation of an unfamiliar illness than healthy children with similar verbal IQ. This finding will be surprising to many clinicians. However, there is little research evidence to support the commonly held assumption that children with chronic illness will learn new medical information more readily. Most work to date has concentrated on the relation between illness experience and the sophistication of childrens illness concepts, and has produced conflicting results.2 3 Few studies have examined the retention of new medical information.. One possible source of error in our study is the lack of a previously validated test to evaluate childrens ability to learn new medical information. The tool we have developed, however, appeared to perform as a good test of knowledge. Inter-rater reliability was high and scores correlated with age and, in the control group, with ...

Skepticism takes many forms-I am concerned with pyrrhonist skepticism. In theory, and often in practice as well, the pyrrhonist doubts but seldom denies. Instead, he prefers to suspend judgment about truth-claims on the grounds that further evidence or insights might alter the state of play. Pyrrhonists demand that, to be successful, all inquiry must be characterized by rhythms of searching, examining, and doubting, with each sequence generating and influencing the next in a continuously dialectical fashion.7 As a result, issues are visited and revisited as often as needed. The result can be to strengthen probability or to weaken it - odds that might seem too risky for those who believe that progress must be inexorable. The considered suspension of belief does not ordinarily pertain in matters that are self-evident or trivial, but expressly applies to cases where more than one explanation is possible.8. Given this caveat, the practical advantages of pyrrhonism are patent. The most important is ...

Background Despite significant progress in the treatment of coronary artery disease, myocardial infarction is still the leading cause of death in the United States. As suggested by Leventhals Self-Regulation Model of Illness, the continued high morbidity and mortality may be due to a failure to address the role of psychosocial factors such as illness representation, depression, and anxiety in recovery.. • Objective To determine the relationship between illness representation of myocardial infarction and the occurrence of in-hospital complications and if anxiety and depression mediate this relationship.. • Method A prospective correlational design was used to measure illness representation, depression, and anxiety 24 to 48 hours after admission for myocardial infarction in 49 patients and the frequency of complications during the acute event. Logistic regression was used to determine the likelihood of experiencing a complication.. • Results When demographic and clinical variables were ...
Despite Canadas generally high standard of living and a health care system that offers universal access to high quality care, there are major health disparities in our nation. These health disparities are most pronounced for vulnerable populations particularly new immigrants, refugees and Canadian born people from non-dominant ethno-racial communities who often, through the process of racialization, are treated in different and unequal in ways with regressive social, economic and political impacts (Galabuzi, 2001). Improving the health of such vulnerable populations requires moving beyond interventions focused on changing individual behaviours to approaches that address systemic issues that impact on their health, namely racism and racial discrimination.. Emerging research shows that the main determinants of health are neither medical nor behavioural but rather social and economic (Raphael, 2004). Despite evidence of the health impacts of structural inequalities, health determinants such as ...
The nurse-led chronic obstructive pulmonary disease-Guidance Research on Illness Perception (COPD-GRIP) intervention was developed to incorporate illness perceptions into COPD care with the intention to improve the health-related quality of life of COPD patients. This individualized intervention focuses on identifying, discussing and evaluating illness perceptions and consists of three consultations with a practice nurse. The aim of this study is to explore patients experiences regarding the COPD-GRIP intervention. A qualitative interview study nested in a cluster randomized trial in primary care. One-time semi-structured individual interviews with COPD patients who were guided with the COPD-GRIP intervention were conducted. During data collection, the constant comparative approach was used. All interviews were recorded, transcribed, anonymized and uploaded to MAXQDA. To identify themes, the transcripts were independently coded by two researchers. Sixteen patients were interviewed. All patients were
Since 1966, researchers at the Carolina Population Center have pioneered data collection and research techniques that move population science forward by emphasizing life course approaches, longitudinal surveys, the integration of biological measurement into social surveys, and attention to context and environment. We are also at the forefront of creating interdisciplinary training programs that integrate approaches from the social and biological sciences, building research capacity and training the next generation of scholars ...
The environment, and how humans affect it, is more of a concern now than ever. We are constantly told that halting climate change requires raising awareness, changing attitudes, and finally altering behaviors among the general public-and doing it fast. New information, attitudes, and actions, it is conventionally assumed, will necessarily follow one from the other. However, this approach ignores much of what is known about attitudes in general and environmental attitudes in particular-a huge gap lies between what we say and what we do. Solving environmental problems requires a scientific understanding of public attitudes. Like rocks in a swollen river, attitudes often lie beneath the surface-hard to see, and even harder to move or change. This book helps us read the water and negotiate its hidden obstacles, explaining what attitudes are, how they change and influence behavior. Rather than trying to change attitudes, we need to design solutions and policies with attitudes in mind. Heberlein illustrates

Culture is a system of shared understandings that shapes and, in turn, is shaped by experience. Culture provides meaning to a set of rules for behavior that are normative (what everyone should do) and pragmatic (how to do it). Culture, unlike instinct, is learned; is distributed within a group in that not everyone possesses the same knowledge, attitudes, or practices; enables us to communicate with one another and behave in ways that are mutually interpretable; and exists in a social setting. Among the shared understandings embodied by a culture are those pertaining to obesity, including understanding of its cause, course, and cure, and the extent to which a society or ethnic group views obesity as an illness. Illness is shaped by cultural factors governing perception, labeling, explanation, and valuation of the discomforting experiences (39). Because illness experience is an intimate part of social systems of meaning and rules for behavior, it is strongly influenced by culture.. As with race ...
Anyone who has had the misfortune of witnessing or handling the aftermath of a serious or fatal on-the-job injury knows that, without question, the costs go far beyond those that appear in a companys ledger book. For those who survive, or who work with the accident or illness victim, the costs continue with psychological stress that may require years of counseling. Many times, co-workers who witness a serious event find themselves unable to return to the worksite for a significant period of time, which presents additional costs to the company through the abrupt loss of skilled workers. A plant with a singularly bad reputation for safety and health may find itself unable to attract workers at all or may have to pay wages well above market value to do so. These are just a few of the hidden costs of a poor safety and health program.. Moreover, as more information concerning a companys compliance and injury/illness experience becomes publicly available over the Internet and from the federal ...

The author investigated two hypotheses. H1: Attitudes about a target will be predictive of attributions made regarding the target. H2: As the cognitive complexity by which the target is represented increases, the less extreme, and less confident will be subjects attributions regarding the target. In Experiment 1 the responses of 240 subjects were used to create standardized descriptions of a target. In Experiment 2 , 160 subjects participated in a 2 (attitude) X 2 (complexity) X 2 (outcome) design. Attitude about a target was manipulated using positive and negative descriptions, complexity of processing was manipulated by have subjects think about the target using 3 or 6 characteristics, and outcome of a situation was manipulated by having scenarios end in either a positive or negative outcome. The null hypothesis of H1 could not be rejected since attitude had no effect on the attributions. No conclusions could be drawn about complexity since the manipulation of schema complexity was ...

If we define this too narrowly, with a dualistic mind, we will miss the chance to practice effectively when we return to the conditions of lay life.Lay life is different, and offers the opportunity for practice which is broader, more dynamic, and more relational than that done on retreat. The Buddha himself saw his teachings as useful and beneficial to lay people as well as monastics, sometimes in surprising applications.

Fifty-one older people (26 of them women) in the Republic of Ireland were interviewed using a semi-structured schedule on their health and illness experiences at three different time points in their lives; as children, as young adults and presently. Of particular interest were their views about the causes of heart disease, cancer and tuberculosis and their experiences of the prevailing health care system during their lifetime. Participants were recruited by letter from a database of respondents to a previous national quantitative survey of older people. Of 247 people originally contacted 127 (51%) responded by letter and 51 of these took part in the interview study. Data were analysed according to principles of content analysis using NUD.IST software. Reported ideas about causes of illnesses were multicausal. These were categorised as behavioural, biological, psychosocial or other explanations. While respondents placed most emphasis on behavioural explanations, this was accompanied by more ...
This unit introduces a sociological perspective on health and illness. The focus will be on how social and cultural processes shape both the distribution of health and illness, and the experience of illness. Health issues such as obesity, smoking, depression, and HIV/AIDS will be examined. The unit will also consider the illness experience, the role of mass media and technology, and what it is like to work in health care. The unit will help you develop critical thinking skills, and provide an understanding of the role of social and cultural factors in health policy and planning. ...
People living with serious mental illness experience significant health disparities. On average, they die 25-30 years earlier than the general population. There are many factors that contribute to this including high risk factors, inadequate health care, poor health behaviors, and medication side-effects. However, the good news is that steps can be taken to influence these factors and Vinfen is here to help.. In 2012, Vinfen was awarded a three-year Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) Health Care Innovation Award to develop Community Based Health Homes for Adults with Serious Mental Illness.. These innovative health homes offer the services of a Nurse Practitioner to provide access to effective and timely care, the Health Buddy Telehealth System from Bosch Healthcare, and an Integrated Illness Management and Recovery (IIMR) training tool developed by Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice. The goal of these health homes is to teach people with serious mental ...

Children with functional GI or motility disorders are influenced by many factors. These include genetic predispositions, unique biological and psychological characteristics, family and caregivers, and external systems including school, friends, and community or social situations. Any of these can influence his or her symptom or illness experience. An integrated approach to treatment, which recognizes that the child is at the center of these interacting systems, is often an effective approach.. Within this model, the childs experiences are linked to his or her family. When a child experiences academic difficulties, conflicts with friends, or problems encountered in community activities such as team sports or social groups, the entire familys equilibrium can be affected.. Similarly, the child may be affected by significant or stressful experiences of other family members, including parents, siblings, grandparents or other relatives.. An integrated approach takes into account the interdependence ...
