N2 - World Health Organization Disability Assessment Schedule 2.0 (WHODAS 2.0) is an assessment tool and it has been applied for disability status assessment of Taiwanese dementia patients since July 2012. The aim of this study was to investigate the predicting accuracy of WHODAS 2.0 for institutionalization of dementia patients.Of these patients, 13,774 resided in a community and 4406 in a long-term care facility. Demographic data and WHODAS 2.0 standardized scores were analyzed using the Chi-square test and independent t test to compare patients with dementia in an institution with those in a community.

PURPOSE: To use the World Health Organisations International Classification of Functioning to measure disability following critical illness using patient-reported outcomes. METHODS: A prospective, multicentre cohort study conducted in five metropolitan intensive care units (ICU). Participants were adults who had been admitted to the ICU, received more than 24 h of mechanical ventilation and survived to hospital discharge. The primary outcome was measurement of disability using the World Health Organisations Disability Assessment Schedule 2.0. The secondary outcomes included the limitation of activities and changes to health-related quality of life comparing survivors with and without disability at 6 months after ICU. RESULTS: We followed 262 patients to 6 months, with a mean age of 59 ± 16 years, and of whom 175 (67%) were men. Moderate or severe disability was reported in 65 of 262 (25%). Predictors of disability included a history of anxiety/depression [odds ratio (OR) 1.65 (95% confidence ...
The late life disability instrument (LLDI) was developed to assess limitations in instrumental and management roles using a small and restricted sample. In this paper we examine the measurement properties of the LLDI using data from the Lifestyle Interventions and Independence for Elders Pilot (LIFE-P) study. LIFE-P participants, aged 70-89 years, were at elevated risk of disability. The 424 participants were enrolled at the Cooper Institute, Stanford University, University of Pittsburgh, and Wake Forest University. Physical activity and successful aging health education interventions were compared after 12-months of follow-up. Using factor analysis, we determined whether the LLDIs factor structure was comparable with that reported previously. We further examined how each item related to measured disability using item response theory (IRT). The factor structure for the limitation domain within the LLDI in the LIFE-P study did not corroborate previous findings. However, the factor structure using the
Objective : The increasing use of disability measures requires that the validity of these instruments be adequately demonstrated. This study sought to evaluate the concurrent validity of one disability measure, the Functional Independence Measure FIMSM using minutes of care reported by nursing staff. Study Design : Correlational, cohort design....
Since its conception in 2002, the LLFDI has been used as an outcome measure in over 70 studies including more than 17,000 community-dwelling older adults. Evidence for its psychometric properties has been demonstrated across a wide range of older clinical populations and contexts. The choice of LLFDI sub-scale for use in individual studies should depend on the construct of interest and evidence for relevant psychometric properties in the most applicable population. Results of this review can be used by researchers to guide future decisions regarding the use of the LLFDI as an outcome measure for clinical research in community-dwelling older adults.. The construct validity of both the Function and Disability components of the LLFDI was well-supported by the evidence found in this review. We noted moderate to strong convergent validity between the Function component and well-validated self-report and performance-based measures of function such as the PF-10 and SPPB. In addition, while there is no ...

Our study differs in several respects from these previous studies. First, we used a large nationwide observational cohort that may better represent the actual clinical situation. Second, we included patients at all stages of the disease in order to reveal the effects of early diagnosis and treatment on functional disability with various disease durations. Third, the earlier studies examined the unadjusted effects on functional disability caused by early or delayed diagnosis; however, we adjusted for significant factors affecting HAQ-DI scores, namely age, gender, disease duration, level of education, initial joint damage, RF positivity, hemoglobin, disease activity, and comorbidity to identify the independent effect of early diagnosis on functional disability.. Interestingly, early diagnosis had an important influence on no functional disability over all disease durations, but in a subgroup analysis, the effect was only statistically significant for durations of less than 5 years. These results ...
Today, we want to talk about a question we get all the time and that is, how do I get 100% VA Disability rating? We see vets who are frustrated.
Do you know what IU (also called TDIU) is? IU is a VA acronym for Total Disability rating based on Individual Unemployability. IU allows a veteran to receive compensation at a 100% disability rate from the VA when their service connected disabilities do not total 100%.. One way to think of IU is to think of it like "gap" insurance for your car. If your car is totaled out when there is still a loan on it, and the totaled value of the car does not cover the loan, gap insurance will bridge the difference. In the realm of the VA, when your disability rating does not equal 100%, but you are completely unable to maintain "substantially gainful employment" because of your disability, IU bridges the difference between your actual disability rating and 100%.. There are two ways in which a veteran can be granted IU: schedular and extra-schedular. Of these two, schedular is the more common and often times the easier to have granted. There are two prongs for a schedular rating and two ways to meet the first ...
Oswestry disability index (ODI) is a tool to measure a subjects functional disability. The Oswestry disability index consists of 10 questions with a Likert 0-5 scale. Each individual score is converted into a percent which represents the percent disability. There are five tiers, 0-20% (minimal disability), 21%-40% (moderate disability), 41%-60% (severe disability), 61%-80% (crippled), 81%-100% (i.e. bed bound). We report the Oswestry disability scores at 3 weeks ...

Women represent a growing proportion of all older people, but added survival means increasing disability associated with chronic conditions such as cardiovascular and respiratory disease, cancer and diabetes, and functional limitations that impact on daily living [1-4]. What is not well understood is the extent to which, apart from age, social and economic factors differently contribute to disability in older men and women. This paper analyses differences in disability prevalence between men and women aged 50 and over, using multi-country data from the World Health Survey (WHS).. Disability spans physical, mental and psychosocial functioning, encompassing a complex suite of conditions, activities and relationships [2, 5]. This study adopts the most recent definition of disability based on the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) [6]. Under the ICF "disability" includes limitations in functioning resulting from ...
For Canadians suffering from disabilities, it is important that organizations such as The National Benefit Authority are available to help navigate the complicated process of qualifying for government benefits. One of the most important types of benefits that disabled persons and their caregivers may qualify for is the disability tax benefit program. The National Benefit Authority helps people apply for these benefits and maximize the discounts and refunds available to them. When disabled persons come to this or other organizations, they can get help qualifying for Disability Tax Benefits such as the Disability Tax Credit, Disability Savings Plan, and more.. There are many disabilities that may qualify for tax benefits in Canada, assuming certain parameters are met. The National Benefit Authority has offered a list of the disabilities that fit within the definitions provided by the Canadian Revenue Agency. Even if someone suffers from one of these disabilities, they may not always qualify if ...

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month, which celebrates the work contributions of Americans with a disability and tries to raise public understanding about the employment difficulties people with a disability often face. In 2016, there were about 5.4 million people with a disability employed in the United States. People with a disability were more likely to work in service occupations than those with no disability (21.3 percent, compared with 17.6 percent).

In our present study a reduced odds of disability was associated with male sex and patients who had undergone PTCA. On the other hand we could show that increased odds of disability were associated with rising age, diabetes mellitus, hearing loss in both ears, CABG, heart failure and deficient nutritional status.. Our results confirmed associations of the demographic factors age and sex with disability after AMI demonstrated in previous studies. Studies including AMI-survivors found disability or loss of physical function was more frequent in women and older individuals irrespective of applied measure. Instruments utilized in past studies included the Disability Scale by Rosow and Breslau, the SF-12 and the HAQ-DI [18, 22, 23]. Studies examining associations between sex, age and ADL-disability in general elderly populations, confirm our results [8, 21]. Among these, results from a recent cross sectional study by Strobl et al. seem most comparable with our study, since it utilized data ...
Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Disability, Margaret Murphy OMahony has said that Irish society must start speaking to the person rather than to that persons disability.. Deputy OMahony was speaking during a briefing she organised for all members of Dáil and Seanad Éireann on the barriers that people with disabilities face in gaining meaningful employment.. "Ive brought together representatives of the Irish Wheelchair Association, the Irish Deaf Society and the National Council for the Blind of Ireland so that members of the Oireachtas can hear directly how they can influence public policy.". "In too many instances, but especially in employment, we see the disability first and the person second. When that happens, business and society more often than not loses out.". "A significant change is required in the Irish economy in terms of understanding disability, and how meaningful employment can play a transformative role in the life of a person with a disability.". "As the party spokesperson on ...
OHS vulnerability study finds people with disabilities report inadequate policies and low empowerment​. People with disabilities have a tough time getting hired, research elsewhere has shown. A new study now suggests that, when they do find jobs, they may be more vulnerable to workplace health and safety risks than their peers without disabilities.​. The study, conducted by a team at the Institute for Work & Health (IWH), found workers with disabilities were more likely to be exposed to hazards at work than other workers. Whats more, they were also more likely to report a combination of hazard exposure and inadequate occupational health and safety (OHS) protection.​. This combination of more exposure to hazards and less adequate protection from them led the IWH research team to conclude that people with disabilities may be more vulnerable to risk of work injury. The conclusion is based upon a concept of vulnerability developed by IWH and embodied in a tool called the OHS Vulnerability ...

There are too many people with invisible diseases and disabilities that may appear young or nothing is wrong with them. People have had cruel and disturbing notes left on their car windshields, spoken to with no respect, and have had and the police called on them for using the handicap placard that has been legally issued to them. There are so many diseases and disabilities that you can not see, such as Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, Lupus, CIDP ALS, Rheumatoid Arthritis, etc. When someone with an invisible disease or disability parks in a handicap spot while using their handicap placard, terrible things have happened. This also causes more pain, anxiety, and suffering for people that already deal with pain on a daily basis that no one can physically see. Something has to change. Something needs to be done. I would like to get as many signatures as possible to create an orange handicap placard to be used for those that suffer from invisible diseases and disabilities. This placard would be ...

2014-07-09 06:09:20. Sometimes the world can feel like a risky place - every day were bombarded by news reports of crime, accidents and natural disasters. But what about the effects of illness or injury? You may not think you need to plan for illness or injury, but they could keep you from working and thus be considered a disability. What are the chances that you or someone you care about could become disabled? • Roughly three in 10 Americans will suffer a disability lasting 90 days or longer before the age of 651 • Nearly one in five Americans will be disabled for one year or more during their working years2 The leading causes of these disabilities are not accidents or injuries - they are illnesses and chronic conditions such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and musculoskeletal disorders.3 The average length of a long-term disability is between two and three years, and this could place a significant strain on your resources. Many American families live paycheck to paycheck, and the ...
The theme of this years Disability Day is Sustainable development: the promise of technology.. About a month ago I was recognised as a finalist in the Yooralla Media Awards for this piece. Last week I declined my award. I couldnt accept it knowing what happened to people in the organisations care and workplace. As a writer with a disability, and knowing one of the victims, this just wouldnt be right. The safety and dignity of those in care is where my values lie. (And I also recognise the majority of ethical, dedicated employees and good work of this organisation and others facing similar allegations. Furthermore, I am still proud to be recognised by these independent judges.). However, I maintain disability media and the recognition of such media through awards is so important. Whether it be disabled media makers, or media about disability, stories need to be told. This latest case highlights just important it is. I hope that Australia can run independent disability media awards through ...
Representation shapes the way we view the world - media regularly exposes us to perspectives and truths that we may otherwise never experience.

EDUCATION The 2002 NATSISS collected school completion information for the 251,000 Indigenous people aged 18 years and over. In 2002, Indigenous adults with a disability completed fewer years of education, on average, than those without a disability. Excluding those still at school, 11% of Indigenous adults with a disability had completed Year 12, compared with 23% of those without a disability. At the other end of the scale, Indigenous adults with a disability were more likely to have left school after completing Year 9 or earlier (55%), than those without a disability (32%). However, for many of these people, their disability or long-term health condition would have commenced after their school years, and so there would be no direct link between disability and schooling completed. ...WORK Some limitations experienced by Indigenous people with a disability may impact on the type of work they can do and the hours they are able to work. In addition, there is a strong association between ...
Many Canadians are fearful of the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and to avoid it, they wont even file a return! But taxpayers with disabilities may qualify for a number of tax credits and benefits, and parents of children with disabilities benefit even more from our tax system. If you dont file, this could mean potentially passing up thousands of dollars in benefits and returns. CRA has many provisions set up to help those with disabilities, so its extremely important to file your taxes every year ...
This well executed qualitative study by Albrecht and Devlieger makes an important contribution to our understanding of how disabled people exercise control over their lives. It shows that by maintaining a harmonious relation with body, mind, and spirit, individuals are able to cope with the consequences of their disability. The findings build on existing work that emphasises how those with a disability are able to live a meaningful and valued social existence. They are not passive victims to be pitied but are able to establish a good quality of life in the same way as those who do not have a disability.. None the less, despite the value of the studys approach, caution should be exercised. Overemphasising individual coping strategies creates a danger that "poor" adjustment to disability is seen as a personal failure. This viewpoint does not recognise how many of the difficulties faced by disabled people occur because of the inability of the wider society to accommodate difference. Studies ...
The concept of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. It means understanding that each individual is unique and recognizes individual differences, yet acknowledges the value of each individual. These can be along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies. Springs Valley Community Schools is an equal opportunity education facility that promotes diversity education for all students, including those with disabilities. The information provided here is to educate students, parents, and educators about various student disabilities one might encounter at Springs Valley, now or in the future, to better understand these students needs, behaviors, and abilities so that they are valued and given the proper respect and assistance they deserve. Below is a list of common student disabilities that one might find at Springs Valley along with information about each disability. ...
Advances in the electronic and information technology (E&IT) industries have revolutionized the way we work, play and communicate. Current and emerging technologies have created opportunities for some but barriers for others in our society. To address the barriers faced by people with disabilities, landmark legislation - Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act - was passed stating that Federal departments and agencies would work through their procurement and development processes to ensure equal access to E&IT-based information and services for their employees and members of the public with disabilities. In 1998, Congress amended the Rehabilitation Act to require Federal agencies to make their electronic and information technology accessible to people with disabilities. Under Section 508, Federal agencies must provide employees with disabilities and members of the public access to this technology that is comparable to the access available to others. Section 508 was enacted to eliminate barriers in ...
Novartis announced today that new data presented at the Joint ACTRIMS-ECTRIMS Meeting in Boston, USA, reinforces the clinical importance of measuring brain shrinkage (brain volume loss) in multiple sclerosis (MS).

In pooled data from the phase III FREEDOMS core and extension studies, patients were categorized into four groups (quartiles) based on th...
The Restriction level contains restriction information for all persons who reported a restriction in one or more activities. This level has been labelled Restriction level to follow the terminology used in the questionnaire (i.e. Are you restricted in everyday activities because of this condition?) and to avoid confusion with the Disability level from 1998. This level is a similar concept to Restricting impairments from 1998 but it includes all restrictions including hearing loss. The data items contained on this level include types of disability; total or partial loss of sight/hearing/speech; whether each disability was caused by brain damage and the cause of the brain damage; and whether each disability causes the most problems for the respondent. All items on this level relate to the Type of disability so other items should be cross-classified by this item. For example, to use the data item Whether disability was caused by brain damage it is necessary to cross-classify it by Types ...

Proper planning for disability is more difficult then it appears because the nature of a familys response to a disability will also depend on which family member it is that experiences the disability and at which phase it happens in his or her life cycle. A disability incurred by an infant or child presents a family with a very different constellation of needs than a disability incurred by a familys primary income earner or child raiser; and a disability incurred by an aging parent or grandparent presents yet another set of needs Planning for disability is further complicated by the fact that the ability of individuals and families to successfully overcome disabling conditions also depends in large part on the physical and social environments in which they live. Which brings me to my second premise; The normalcy of disability is not recognized by most people in society, including those who are responsible for social policy. Having experienced disability first hand for most of my life, I cannot ...

Unique Selling Points or USPs are the elements which differentiate a company from another and therefore make it stand out from other businesses. On SpotMi a company or an organization is using their Unique Selling Points in diversity and inclusion to promote, monitor and measure their ability, experience and values based on diversity search criterias such as Language, LGBTQ, Disability and service to Parents. On this page, we describe the different USP values thatre currently being used on SpotMi in the category Disability.. The Disability-values displayed for a specific company/organization are reflecting the current readiness of their products, services and premises, the knowledge/skill level of their staff, the company values and their dedication to equal treatment. By displaying these Disability-values, the company/organization is promoting their readiness, ability and commitment to do business and provide service to persons with disability.
