OBJECTIVE: To adapt and validate a Brazilian Portuguese version of the European Heart Failure Self-Care Behavior Scale.. METHODS: The cross-cultural adaptation (translation, synthesis, back-translation, expert committee review, and pretesting) and validation (assessment of face validity, content validity, and internal consistency reliability) were carried out in accordance with the literature. The European Heart Failure Self-Care Behavior Scale assesses key components of self-care: recognition of the signs and symptoms of decompensated heart failure (HF) and decision-making when these signs and symptoms arise. It comprises 12 items (range 12-60, where lower scores indicate better self-care).. RESULTS: The sample comprised 124 HF patients with a mean age of 62.3 ± 12 years. The Cronbachs Alpha internal consistency was 0.70 and the intraclass correlation coefficient for reproducibility was 0.87.. CONCLUSION: Face and content validity, internal consistency and reproducibility have lended validity ...

Aims: Improved self-care is the goat of many heart failure (HF) management programmes. The 12-item European Heart Failure Self-Care Behaviour Scale (EHFScB scale) was developed and tested to measure patient self-care behaviours. It is now available in 14 languages. The aim of this study was to further determine reliability and validity of the EHFScB scale. Methods and results: Data from 2592 HF patients (mean age 73 years, 63% mate) from six countries were analysed. Internal consistency was determined by Cronbachs alpha. Validity was established by (1) interviews with HF experts and with HF patients; (2) item analysis; (3) confirmatory factor analysis; and (4) analysing the relationship between the EHFScB scale and scales measuring quality of life and adherence. Internal consistency of the 12-item scale was 0.77 (0.71-0.85). After factor analyses and critical evaluation of both psychometric properties and content of separate items, a nine-item version was further evaluated. The reliability ...

Diabetes is a major public health problem in China. Diabetes self-management is critical for patients to achieved better health outcomes, however, previous studies have shown suboptimal diabetes self-management performance. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to identify factors associated with diabetes self-management in Chinese adults. The results showed that confrontation, resignation, overall health beliefs, perceived susceptibility, perceived barriers, and self-efficacy were factors associated with overall diabetes self-management performance and six aspects of diabetes self-management behaviors. There is some limited evidence to suggest that provider-patient communication, married individuals, higher educational level, and higher household income level may also be linked to better diabetes self-management practice. Having healthcare insurance and utilizing chronic illness resources generally appeared to have a favorable effect on diabetes self-management performance. In addition,

Men were most likely to see self-care as a primary responsibility and women were most likely to collaborate with others in making decisions. Although, men were more likely to make independent decisions related to self-care management (p=0.01), the women had higher self-care management scores (p=.04). When adequacy of self-care (defined as ≥70 on the each standardized SCHFI scale) was compared across the role groups, significant differences found (p=.03). Those who described their role as only to do what they were told (i.e., followed the direction of others) had poorer self-care (management, p=.03; maintenance, p=.06).. Conclusion: Perceived role in HF self-care varies by gender and is linked to quantitative evidence of self-care. Assessment of perceived role by clinicians can guide patient education, especially for those who are likely to defer to others. Tailored instructions may be needed to help women assume independent responsibility for self-care and to improve the decisions made by men. ...

Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects nearly 17 million Americans (1), with over 10 million cases diagnosed, and is characterized by serious, costly, and potentially fatal complications. The total cost of diagnosed cases of diabetes in the U.S. in 2002 was estimated to be $92 billion (1). To prevent or delay the costly complications and to enable people with diabetes to lead healthy, productive lives, appropriate medical care based on current standards of practice, self-management education, and medication and supplies must be available to everyone with diabetes. This paper is based on technical reviews titled Diabetes Self-Management Education (2) and National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education Programs (3).. The goal of medical care for people with diabetes is to optimize glycemic control and minimize complications. The Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) demonstrated that treatment that maintains blood glucose levels near normal in type 1 diabetes delays the ...

The identification of diabetes complications or other patient factors that may influence self-management should be considered a critical indicator for diabetes education that requires immediate attention and adequate resources. During routine medical care, the provider may identify factors that influence treatment and the associated self-management plan. These factors may include the patients ability to manage and cope with diabetes complications, other health conditions, medications, physical limitations, emotional needs, and basic living needs. These factors may be identified at the initial diabetes encounter or may arise at any time. Such patient factors influence the clinical, psychosocial, and behavioral aspects of diabetes care.. The diagnosis of additional health conditions and the potential need for additional medications can complicate self-management for the patient. Diabetes education can address the integration of multiple medical conditions into overall care with a focus on ...

The study demonstrated that home BP telemonitoring combined with self-care support reduced the BP of diabetic patients with uncontrolled systolic hypertension and improved hypertension control. Our system was fully automated, and self-care messages, which were sent immediately after each BP reading, were based on care paths defined by running averages of transmitted readings. The BP results confirmed our pilot study findings14 and were the same whether 24-hour ambulatory BP monitoring or 7-day home BP measurements were used to assess outcome. In the self-care support group, 51% achieved the guideline-recommended BP target of ,130/80 mmHg,1 which was substantially higher than that of 37.5% among treated hypertensive diabetic patients in a recent BP survey in the United States.2. Patients with chronic conditions inevitably engage in self-care activities.4 In the case of hypertension, this may take the form of self-measuring BP, making lifestyle changes, or experimenting with prescribed treatment. ...

Discussion. The complementary and self-help treatments with the best evidence of effectiveness are St Johns wort, physical exercise, self-help books involving cognitive behaviour therapy, and light therapy for winter depression. However, none of these has as much support as antidepressants or face-to-face cognitive behaviour therapy, both of which are standard treatments recommended in clinical practice guidelines.127 For example, according to recent meta-analyses, newer antidepressants have been tested on more than 30 000 participants in 315 trials128 and cognitive behaviour therapy on 2765 participants in 48 trials.129 By contrast, St Johns wort has been tested on 2291 participants in 27 trials,31 exercise on 724 participants in 14 trials,84 and self-help books involving cognitive behaviour therapy on 273 participants in six trials.75 Furthermore, while there are some well-designed studies on these complementary and self-help treatments, in general the reported studies are of poorer quality, ...

Of 1742 identified articles, 31 moderate-quality articles describing 8 quantitative and 23 qualitative studies were included. Patients with advanced cancer used self-management strategies in seven domains: medicine and pharmacology, lifestyle, mental health, social support, knowledge and information, navigation and coordination and medical decision-making (29 articles). Strategies were highly individual, sometimes ambivalent and dependent on social interactions. Older patients and patients with more depressive symptoms and lower levels of physical functioning, education and self-efficacy might have more difficulties with certain self-management strategies (six articles). Healthcare professionals perceived self-management as desirable and achievable if based on sufficient skills and knowledge and solid patient-professional partnerships (three articles ...

Table 4] presents comparison between pretest and post-test self-management strategies in the studied sample. It was found that there were statistically significant differences between preprogram and postprogram cognitive, behavioral, and physiological strategies in the studied sample (P=0.001). The studied sample showed improvement and used some coping mechanism for stopping hallucination effectively. The studied sample used behavioral techniques for coping and stopping hallucination in relation to physiological techniques: before program 76.7% did not use sleep but after program it helped 50% to some extent; and before program 86.7% did not use the technique of listening to music to cope but after program 60% of them listened to music, which helped them to cope to some extent. As regards cognitive techniques, 86.7% did not use the technique of talking with voices after intervention. 100% of patients did not shout to the voice but after intervention 50% of them shouted to the voice. In relation ...
Asthma is a prevalent chronic respiratory disease and major cause of morbidity in the United States (1). However, with appropriate medication, medical care, and self-management, most asthma symptoms are preventable (2). Recent evidence indicates that asthma self-management education is effective in improving outcomes of chronic asthma (3). Guidelines issued by the National Asthma Education and Prevention Program (NAEPP) specify essential components of asthma management, including patient education, objective monitoring of symptoms, and avoiding asthma triggers (3). Healthy People 2010 objectives include increasing the proportion of persons with asthma who receive formal patient education from 8% to 30% (objective 24-6) and who receive care according to NAEPP guidelines (objective 24-7) (4,5). The National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) routinely includes questions that assess asthma status. In 2003, the survey included a series of questions designed to reflect clinical best practices for asthma ...
The aim of this mixed method study was first to construct a path model based on existing literatures and test the direct and indirect influence of diabetes self-efficacy, social support, expectation regarding aging, socio-demographic factors (age, gender, education and employment status) and disease specific characteristics (diabetes duration, associated comorbidity, type of treatment) on diabetes self-care behaviors, the second aim was to enhance description of self-care behaviors of Nepalese adults with DM by exploring self-care strategies and context and culture specific motivating factors and/or barriers. Understanding the interrelated path among variables influencing diabetes self-care and gaining an in-depth understanding about the self-care strategies, barriers and boosters will provide evidence for planning specific and holistic nursing interventions. The participants in this study were Nepalese adults (40 years and above), who were diagnosed to have diabetes mellitus (DM) for over 6 ...

Horizon Award. Lower-to-middle-income, working-age adults are disproportionately burdened by chronic disease. However, their participation in programs to help patients manage their chronic conditions is, generally, low. This can be attributed, in part, to the fact that recruitment materials for such programs typically appeal to elderly, more affluent adults. Recent doctoral graduate Lindsey Horrell focused on identifying advertisement images and text to better market one of the leading chronic disease management programs, the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP), to lower-to-middle-income, working-age adults.. Her research is part of a larger U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-funded study assessing employment and economic outcomes associated with the CDSMP. The parent study enrolled 327 participants from five N.C. counties who worked at least 32 hours a week, earned less than $60,000 annually and had been diagnosed with at least one chronic health condition, among ...

Survivors are particularly vulnerable after they leave their abusers; their abusers often try to manipulate them into coming back and revert back to their sweet, false persona in doing so. Thats why its necessary to not only block texts and phone calls from your abuser but remove any connection with them and enablers on social media. This removes temptation and information about them altogether from your healing journey. It gives you a clean slate to reconnect to what truly happened and how you felt - rather than the ways in which the abuser will try to distort the situation post-breakup.. To begin anchoring yourself, keep a list of at least ten of the most major abusive incidents that occurred in your relationship with the narcissistic abuser or at the very least, ten ways in which you felt degraded. This will come in handy when youre tempted to reach out to them, to look them up on social media or respond to their attempts to ensnare you back into the abuse cycle.. It is best to work with a ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Clinicians caseload management behaviours as explanatory factors in patients length of time on caseloads. T2 - a predictive multilevel study in paediatric community occupational therapy. AU - Kolehmainen, Niina. AU - MacLennan, Graeme. AU - Francis, Jillian J. AU - Duncan, Edward A S. PY - 2010/8/23. Y1 - 2010/8/23. N2 - BACKGROUND: Long waiting times and large caseloads are a challenge to childrens therapy services internationally. Research in hospital-based healthcare indicates that waiting times are a function of throughput, and that length of care episode is related to clinicians caseload management behaviour (i.e. actions at assessment, treatment, post-treatment, and discharge). There have been few attempts to study this in community health services. The present study investigated whether community occupational therapists behaviour predicts childrens length of time (LoT) on caseloads. METHODS: Retrospective survey of case notes of children recently discharged from ...
This study adds to the current literature by using multiple validated scales and indices that measured neighborhood and community characteristics and examined their independent relationships with self-care and outcomes in patients with T2DM. We found that neighborhood violence, aesthetics, walking environment, activities, food insecurity, neighborhood comparison, and social support have statistically significant associations with diabetes self-care behaviors and health outcomes to varying degrees. However, we did not find significant relationships between neighborhood safety, crime, perceived neighborhood problems, availability of recreational facilities, neighborhood rating, and access to healthy foods and self-care behaviors and health outcomes. This is the first study to our knowledge that used a large sample size and all available measures of neighborhood factors to assess these relationships. In addition, we entered variables in blocks and examined the amount of variance explained by each ...
Aim: Asthma self-management is widely recommended by guidelines but poorly implemented. We undertook a systematic review of phase IV implementation studies of asthma self-management support interventions to inform implementation in real-life settings.. Methods: We searched 7 electronic databases, and performed snowball and manual searches. We assessed all eligible papers for quality, extracted and synthesised data on process and clinical outcomes (e.g. asthma symptoms, use of health services).. Results: 14 studies were included in the review. Complex whole systems interventions which addressed patient education, professional training and facilitated a supportive organisation were associated with improved asthma control. Individually, however, these core components were insufficient to reliably improve clinical outcomes. Key facilitators were commitment of the healthcare system to supporting self-management, self-management skills training for professionals, patient education programmes supported ...
The purpose of this study was to examine self-care behaviors of adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus living in the Metropolitan Area of Thessaloniki in Northern Greece. The Summary of Diabetes Self-Care behaviors measurement was administered to 215 patients, out of which 177 were eligible to participate (87 males). Patients, aged 30 years or more, were recruited through a university hospital day-clinic. Older patients (,65 years), as well as those with higher educational level did not distribute their daily carbohydrate intake equally. Nevertheless, they were more likely to adapt to their physicians recommendations regarding medication and to regularly perform suggested blood glucose checking. Exercise patterns were more often found for higher educated, earlier diagnosed males. Younger patients were less likely to follow their healthcare professionals recommendations, regarding diet, medication intake, blood glucose checking, foot care and exercise compared to older patients. These results ...

Diabetes mellitus is one of the leading causes of death in the United States, contributing to rising health care costs and increased morbidity and mortality rates. Researchers demonstrated that aggressive heath measures involving ongoing diabetes self-management education are paramount in minimizing associated complications of diabetes. The management and prevention of diabetes is not standardized and providers within a health clinic in Illinois reported challenges in providing self-management education during scheduled patient appointments due to limited resources and time. The purpose of this DNP project was to develop a clinical practice guideline to be used by all providers within the health care clinic for the management of Type 2 diabetes. The goal of the developed guideline was to optimize the time providers spend with patients diagnosed with diabetes and improve the consistency and quality of education and care. The health promotion model provided a guide for the development of the practice
Prevention of diabetes complications requires a multitude of self-management tasks which are time-consuming. For example, following the American Diabetes Association recommendations for self-management would take 143 minutes per day [1]. Patients spend a mean of 58 minutes per day on self-care, with the largest barrier to additional care being not enough time [1]. To compound this, the majority (56%) of people with diabetes have two or more additional chronic conditions [2]. Patient adherence to clinical practice guideline (CPG) recommendations is impacted by multi-morbidity, as it directly impacts self-management ability (e.g., depression) [3] and competes for time and attention [4] (Yu CH: Impact of a web-based self-management intervention for patients with type 2 diabetes on self-efficacy, self-care and diabetes distress, submitted). For example, patients with a greater overall number of comorbidities placed lower priority on diabetes, had worse diabetes self-management ability [5, 6] and ...
Background: Low back pain (LBP) is prevalent across all social classes, in all age groups, and across industrialized and developing countries. From a global perspective, LBP is considered the leading cause of disability and negatively impacts everyday life and well-being. Self-management is a recommended first-line treatment, and mobile apps are a promising platform to support self-management of conditions like LBP. In the selfBACK project, we have developed a digital decision support system made available for the user via an app intended to support tailored self-management of nonspecific LBP. Objective: The trial aims to evaluate the effectiveness of using the selfBACK app to support self-management in addition to usual care (intervention group) versus usual care only (control group) in people with nonspecific LBP. Methods: This is a single-blinded, randomized controlled trial (RCT) with two parallel arms. The selfBACK app provides tailored self-management plans consisting of advice on physical
TY - JOUR. T1 - Rheumatology clinicians experiences of brief training and implementation of skills to support patient self-management. AU - Dures, Emma. AU - Hewlett, Sarah. AU - Ambler, Nicholas. AU - Jenkins, Remona. AU - Clarke, Joyce. AU - Gooberman-Hill, Rachael. PY - 2014. Y1 - 2014. N2 - BACKGROUND: Self-management of arthritis requires informed, activated patients to manage its physical and psychosocial consequences. Patient activation and self-management can be enhanced through the use of cognitive-behavioural approaches, which have a strong evidence base and provide insight into the variation in outcome of patients with ostensibly the same degree of disease activity. However, training for rheumatology health professionals in theory and skills underpinning the facilitation of self-management is not widely available. To develop such training, this study explored rheumatology clinicians experiences of a variety of brief skills training courses to understand which aspects were helpful or ...
The types of information noted in this study are similar to the types of strategies identified for self-care symptom management as documented by Chou et al (2004:336). However, in this study, it is to be noted that there was very little information regarding exercising and spiritual care. Spiritual care as a strategy includes all spiritual activities such as praying, going to church and reading the Bible, whilst exercise includes any activity performed to exercise the body such as jogging, aerobics, walking and on the like. This is different from what was documented in other studies where a self-care strategy of exercise was used and found effective for different symptoms related to HIV (Bunch 2004:173; Kemppainen et al. 2006:602). Furthermore, it is to be noted that each source of information had a preferred type of information that they provide to the women living with HIV.. Ethical considerations. For the bigger study, ethical clearance was obtained from the University of KwaZulu-Natals ...
Background: The community hospital as a part of a large health care system participates in the Ohio Coverdell Stroke Program. The Coverdell Goals are to improve the quality of patients care transitions, reduce avoidable complications, and support the reduction of patients unnecessary readmissions. The purpose of the project was to evaluate if the tools, Patient Activation Assessment (PAA), Personal Health Record (PHR), and the Patient Activation Measure (PAM) improve transitions from the Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility (IRF) to home, without patients experiencing an unnecessary readmission. The nurse used the tools to teach patients stroke fundamentals and self-management strategies.. Methods: The population consisted of all stroke patients discharged home from the IRF over twelve months (n=177). The intervention was patient stroke education based on the PAM and the PAA scores while utilizing the PHR. The nurse taught stroke fundamentals within the structure of the PAA four pillars directed ...

The validity of the utility concept, particularly in an expected utility framework, has been questioned because of its inability to predict revealed behavior. In this paper we focus on the global shape of the utility function instead of the local shape of the utility function. We examine the extent of heterogeneity in the global shape of the utility function of decision makers and test whether its shape predicts strategic risk management behavior. We assess the utility functions and relate them to strategic decisions for portfolio managers (N = 104) and hog farmers (N = 239). The research design allows us to examine the robustness of our results and the extent to which the results can be generalized. Furthermore, we assess the shape of the utility functions for these decision makers applying two different methods. This allows us to further test the robustness of our empirical results. If there exists a relationship between the shape of the utility function and strategic decisions, both methods should

BACKGROUND: Rehabilitation approaches for people with rheumatoid arthritis include joint protection, exercises and self-management strategies. Health interventions delivered via the web have the potential to improve access to health services overcoming time constraints, physical limitations, and socioeconomic and geographic barriers. The objective of this review is to determine the effects of web-based rehabilitation interventions in adults with rheumatoid arthritis. METHODS: Randomised controlled trials that compared web-based rehabilitation interventions with usual care, waiting list, no treatment or another web-based intervention in adults with rheumatoid arthritis were included. The outcomes were pain, function, quality of life, self-efficacy, rheumatoid arthritis knowledge, physical activity and adverse effects. Methodological quality was assessed using the Cochrane Risk of Bias tool and quality of evidence with the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation approach. RESULTS
BACKGROUND: The Diabetes Manual is a type 2 diabetes self-management programme based upon the clinically effective Heart Manual. The 12 week programme is a complex intervention theoretically underpinned by self-efficacy theory. It is a one to one intervention meeting United Kingdom requirements for structured diabetes-education and is delivered within routine primary care. METHODS/DESIGN: In a two-group cluster randomized controlled trial, GP practices are allocated by computer minimisation to an intervention group or a six-month deferred intervention group. We aim to recruit 250 participants from 50 practices across central England. Eligibility criteria are adults able to undertake the programme with type 2 diabetes, not taking insulin, with HbA1c over 8% (first 12 months) and following an agreed protocol change over 7% (months 13 to 18). Following randomisation, intervention nurses receive two-day training and delivered the Diabetes Manual programme to participants. Deferred intervention nurses
A New DAWN: Diabetes Awareness & Wellness Network was conducted among 24 churches of varying size in North Carolina. Each church recruited congregants with type 2 diabetes and designated a diabetes advisor, or peer counselor, to be part of the intervention team. Participants were enrolled at each church and randomized as a unit to either the special intervention or the minimal intervention. The special intervention included one individual counseling visit, twelve group sessions, three postcard messages from the participants diabetes care provider, and twelve monthly telephone calls from a diabetes advisor. Baseline data included measures of weight, hemoglobin A1c, blood pressure, physical activity, dietary and diabetes self-care practices, and psychosocial factors. The study to evaluate the intervention (from enrollment visit to last follow-up) began in February 2001 and ended in August 2003 ...
Sept. 23, 24, 26, 27 (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday) 8 hours each day: The Calaveras County Public Health Department is recruiting residents to participate in a training to become community health workers. Community health workers teach chronic condition self-management skills to people in their community. We are looking for adults that have a chronic condition or a partner/family member caring for someone with a chronic condition, Calaveras County Health Officer Dr. Dean Kelaita said. The participants will learn a workshop model developed by Stanford University. The strength of the model is that trainers are people in our community who also have chronic conditions but have been trained in self-management skills that include physical activity, reducing stress, healthy eating and communication with your doctor. This is an opportunity for local residents to gain confidence in managing a chronic condition and building the skills with others. A chronic condition is a health problem like high ...

My last two blogs talked about high blood sugar also known as hyperglycemia and low blood sugar also known as hypoglycemia. Oftentimes many people with diabetes have no idea WHAT are their blood glucose goals.. First of all , I will be talking about blood glucose targets for non-pregnant people WITH diabetes. If you happen to have Prediabetes, Gestational Diabetes or want to know the range for the general population I will discuss these topics in later blogs. Todays focus is solely on individuals diagnosed with diabetes.. If you have diabetes your blood glucose goals are based on the time of day and the activities during this period. The first time people with diabetes should measure their blood glucose is when they first wake up. This is called your fasting blood sugar or preprandial blood glucose. Your target should be between 80-130mg/dl . If your blood sugar is routinely above or below this range action needs to be taken reach your targets. Usually something as simple as adjusting the dose ...
Elliott Proctor Joslin, M.D. (6 June 1869 - 28 January 1962) was the first doctor in the United States to specialize in diabetes and was the founder of todays Joslin Diabetes Center. Dr. Joslin was involved for seven decades in most aspects of diabetes investigation and treatment, save for the fact that he did not discover insulin. Following the Toronto groups blockbuster discovery of insulin in 1921, and the groups disbanding several years later, Joslin became effectively the dean of diabetes mellitus. In the mid-1920s, Joslin, in his mid-50s, took the reins as the world spokesman for the cause of diabetes. He was the first to advocate for teaching patients to care for their own diabetes, an approach now commonly referred to as DSME or Diabetes Self-Management Education. He is also a recognized pioneer in glucose management, identifying that tight glucose control leads to fewer and less extreme complications. Elliott Joslin was born to wealthy parents in 1869 in Oxford, Massachusetts where ...

Smoking has evolved from a mainstream habit to a symbol of rebellion. Long gone are the days when the sexy siren would ask the smooth gentleman to light her cigarette. We now associate smoking with lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD. Most states ban smoking in buildings secondary to the risk of secondhand smoke. Smoking is clearly out of vogue.. Smoking is dangerous for the average person but this addictive habit is particularly damaging for someone dealing with diabetes. The Center for Disease reported smokers were 30% to 40% more likely to develop diabetes compared to nonsmokers. Also, blood sugar(glucose) raises 29% after smoking a cigarette making managing diabetes more challenging. The typical complications for people with diabetes who smoke are heart disease, kidney disease, poor blood flow leading to amputations, eye disease(retinopathy) and nerve damage(neuropathy). If you smoke and want to improve your blood sugar simply stop smoking. Of course nothing is as ...
