Swinging appears to be on the rise, and it might be happening right next door. SELF reports on whether it revives or ruins relationships.
There are a number of barriers to implementing patient-reported outcomes data collection on a clinical trials industry-wide scale. Clinicians main concerns are that the additional data collection will be burdensome, as it adds to their own workload as well as that of any data entry professionals.. Interestingly, some clinical trials professionals feel that patient-reported outcomes are not necessary provided that have already established a good relationship with their study participants. In this case, the clinicians believe that their own assessment of the treatment benefits is consistent with the patients own experience, which may not always be the case.. Building patient-reported outcomes measures into clinical trials isnt the only hurdle facing the oncology community. A recent study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, found that most newly-approved oncology drugs dont include patient-reported outcomes in their package inserts. The researchers found that only three out of 40 new ...

A newly published study, which followed participants for up to 24 years, included 124,000 men and women and began in 1986. In total, over 124,000 people between the ages of 27-65 participated. All study participants self-reported their diet every four (4) years using a food frequency questionnaire. Their flavonoid intake was calculated by how frequently they consumed flavonoid-containing foods. Participants also reported on their lifestyle habits and weight every two (2) years. They were also asked to report any changes in smoking status, physical activity level, hours spent sitting or watching TV, and hours of sleep.. Over each four-year period, men gained 2.2lbs on average and women gained 2.9lbs. Intake of flavonoids was an average of 224 milligrams per day in men and 247 milligrams per day in women. Every additional 10 milligrams of daily intake was associated with 0.16 to 0.23 lbs. less weight gained over four-year periods. A quarter cup of strawberries or cherries contains about 10 mg of ...

Objective: This study examines to what extent smoking reduction in COPD patients is achieved through the REDUQ program and how smoking reduction can be explained. Design: Randomized, controlled multicenter trial. Subjects: For the REDUQ study participated 110 COPD patients of Medical Spectrum Twente hospital [MST] and the University Medical Centre Groningen [UMCG]. Of those 110 86 were from the MST and 24 patients from the UMCG. Method: Validity of self-reported measures was analyzed. An Intention-to-treat analysis to compared the reduction of ≥50% between the intensive intervention and the placebo self help intervention after 6 and 12 months. A univariate Analysis of Variance is conducted to determine the effect of successful smoking reduction on stage of change regarding smoking cessation. A hierarchical logistic regression is conducted to determine possible predictive determinants of smoking reduction. Results: The self-reported measures were found to be incongruent. The intention-to-treat ...

Self-report instruments have been used in many epidemiology studies and have contributed to most of what is known regarding the relationship between physical activity and health [40]. Although objective instruments are now widely used, there is considerable need to improve the utility and accuracy of self-report measures. The low cost and ease of use make self-report measures the most feasible approach for assessing physical activity profiles in large and diverse groups of individuals [40]. The calibration procedures tested in this study provide a way to scale self-report data so it matches data obtained using objective measures. In this study, we calibrated the PAQ (a widely used self-report instrument in research with children) but the methods would have similar utility for other self-report instruments. The specific goal was to evaluate the validity of a simple calibration equation to convert raw PAQ scores into a more meaningful outcome measure (minutes of MVPA per week) and determine if ...
The aim of the present study is to establish the relationship between foot-ankle patient-reported outcome measures (PROM) and three measures of foot-ankle alignment (MoFAA) in patients with metatarsal head pain. A cross-sectional study where 206 patients completed three PROMs and a clinician recorded three MoFAA bilaterally (three times each). A reliability analysis of the MoFAA, a correlation analysis (between MoFAA and PROM) and regression analysis (dependent variable: PROM; independent variables: MoFAA) were performed. Pearsons coefficient changed in each PROM used, ranging from 0.243 (AAOS-FAMShoeComfortScale-FVARight) to 0.807 (FFIIndex-first MTPJEright). Regression indices (R2-corrected) ranged between 0.117 (AAOS-FAMShoeComfortScale) and 0.701 (FFIIndex). The MoFAA correlated between moderately to strongly with the foot-ankle PROM selected. The level of correlation between MoFAA and PROM was higher when patients with metatarsal head pain were asked about foot health status, pain and function;

Downloadable (with restrictions)! We consider a model of optimal law enforcement where sanctions can be reduced for self-reporting individuals. We distinguish between a first self-reporting stage before the case is investigated and a second one where the criminal is detected, but not yet convicted. Since we assume that violators have private information in both stages, fine reductions for self-reporting individuals lead ceteris paribus to a higher violation frequency. Nevertheless, we show that fine reductions should be granted in both stages. We characterize the connection between the two fine reductions in the optimal policy and relate our results to self-reporting schemes observed in reality.

This study, the first of its kind in chronic stroke, has demonstrated that self-reported post-stroke fatigue is significantly reduced after 6 weeks of modafinil therapy compared with placebo. In addition to the reduction in fatigue, it was observed that there was a significant improvement in participants quality of life. The secondary fatigue measure, the FSS, also showed a significant reduction in participants self-reported fatigue, confirming the primary end point. However, no significant change was reported for mood or cognition with modafinil therapy. These positive findings are encouraging, but preliminary, owing to the small size of the study.. The reported significant improvement in patient quality of life was due mainly to improvement in the subdomains of energy, mobility, social roles, vision, and thinking, which are critically important aspects of post-stroke life. Although there was no statistically significant improvement in the subdomains of family, language, mood, personality, ...
One large study investigated the link between depression and the intake of coffee, tea and sweet drinks by following more than a quarter of a million older adults for 10 years. Researchers at the National Institutes of Health recorded consumption of each type of beverage in 1995 and 1996 and then compared those figures with participants self-reported diagnoses of depression after 2000. Results showed that coffee intake was associated with a slightly lower risk for depression, according to a paper published last April in PLOS ONE. The paper found little effect from tea, but other work has shown tea to be protective.. A study reported in November 2013 found older Chinese adults who regularly drank any kind of tea had a significantly smaller risk for depression: 21 percent for those who drank tea between one and five days a week and 41 percent for daily drinkers. The researchers also asked about the participants leisure activities to ensure that the tea, and not teatime socializing, provided the ...
Interest is growing in using patients own reports of their health-patient-reported outcomes, or PROs, to measure quality of life and use performance on these measures for payer incentives that reward higher quality care and better outcomes.
Estimates of screening mammography usage rates are typically based on self-reported information because surveys are an efficient method to obtain information on a large number of individuals. Medical records, such as those obtained in the BCSC, are generally considered to provide more accurate information on mammography usage than self-reported data from state and national surveys; however, studies rarely collect both medical records and self-report to be able to actually compare the difference. This study is unusual because it examines the validity of survey response on a geographically defined population, using the Census as denominator, rather than focusing on a particular group such as members of an HMO. The approach presented provides an estimate of recent screening rates that is likely to be representative of the U.S. population.. The mammography model used is based largely on the BCSC data. Previous work has compared counties included in the BCSC to all counties in the United States to ...

Emotional Competence (EC), which refers to individual differences in the identification, understanding, expression, regulation and use of ones own emotions and those of others, has been found to be an important predictor of individuals adaptation to their environment. Higher EC is associated with greater happiness, better mental and physical health, more satisfying social and marital relationships and greater occupational success. While it is well-known that EC (as a whole) predicts a number of important outcomes, it is unclear so far which specific competency(ies) participate(s) in a given outcome. This is because no measure of EC distinctly measures each of the five core emotional competences, separately for ones own and others emotions. This lack of information is problematic both theoretically (we do not understand the processes at stake) and practically (we cannot develop customized interventions). This paper aims to address this issue. We developed and validated in four steps a ...

The law requires that data collection standards for these measures be used, to the extent that it is practical, in all national population health surveys. It applies to self-reported information only. The law also requires any data standards published by HHS to comply with standards created by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).. The standards apply to population health surveys sponsored by HHS, where respondents either self-report information or a knowledgeable person responds for all members of a household. HHS is implementing these data standards in all new surveys and at the time of major revisions to current surveys.. ...

We sought to modify the MDASI for patients with MPM and create a fit-for-purpose symptom-burden measure for use in a clinical trial, according to US Food and Drug Administration guidance on PRO utilization to support labeling claims ...
Downloadable! Economists rely heavily on self-reported measures of health status to examine the relationship between income and health. In this paper we directly compare survey responses to a self-reported measure of health that is commonly available in nationally-representative individual and household surveys, with objective measures of the same health condition. Our particular focus is on hypertension, which is the most prevalent health condition in Western countries. Using data from the Health Survey for England, we find that there is a substantial difference in the percentage of adult survey respondents reporting that they have hypertension as a chronic health condition compared to that from repeated measurements by a trained nurse. Around 85% of individuals measured as having hypertension do not report having it as a chronic illness. Importantly, we find no evidence of an income/health gradient using self-reported hypertension, but a large (about 14 times the size) gradient when using objectively
We performed a systematic review of the accuracy of patient self-report of stroke to inform approaches to ascertaining and confirming stroke cases in large prospective studies.We sought studies comparing patient self-report against a reference standard for stroke. We extracted data on survey method(s), response rates, participant characteristics, the reference standard used, and the positive predictive value (PPV) of self-report. Where possible we also calculated sensitivity, specificity, negative predictive value (NPV), and stroke prevalence. Study-level risk of bias was assessed using the Quality Assessment of Diagnostic Studies tool (QUADAS-2).From |1500 identified articles, we included 17 studies. Most asked patients to report a lifetime history of stroke but a few limited recall time to ≤5 years. Some included questions for transient ischaemic attack (TIA) or stroke synonyms. No study was free of risk of bias in the QUADAS-2 assessment, the most frequent causes of bias being incomplete reference
This study investigated the specific health-promoting behaviors employed by early adolescents (n = 246) and their subjective well-being (SWB) to provide an understanding of how mental and physical wellness relate in teens. Participants self-reported on their dietary habits, physical activity, sleep hygiene, safety habits, and attitudes toward substance use. A comprehensive assessment of SWB was also gathered (i.e., global life satisfaction, positive affect, and negative affect). The researcher hypothesized that each of the five health-promoting behaviors assessed in the current study would have significant, positive correlations with the SWB of early adolescents, in that youth who reported higher levels of engagement in these healthy behaviors also would report higher levels of happiness. Furthermore, demographic characteristics of gender, race, and socioeconomic status were hypothesized to play a moderating role in the relationship between health promotion and happiness. Findings demonstrated
BACKGROUND: Many studies have documented the bias in body mass index (BMI) determined from self-reported data on height and weight, but few have examined the change in bias over time. METHODS: Using data from large, nationally-representative population health surveys, we examined change in bias in height and weight reporting among Australian adults between 1995 and 2008. Our study dataset included 9,635 men and women in 1995 and 9,141 in 2007-2008. We investigated the determinants of the bias and derived correction equations using 2007-2008 data, which can be applied when only self-reported anthropometric data are available. RESULTS: In 1995, self-reported BMI (derived from height and weight) was 1.2 units (men) and 1.4 units (women) lower than measured BMI. In 2007-2008, there was still underreporting, but the amount had declined to 0.6 units (men) and 0.7 units (women) below measured BMI. The major determinants of reporting error in 2007-2008 were age, sex, measured BMI, and education of the
At baseline, the prevalence of increased melancholic and non-melancholic depressive symptoms was 5 % and 15 %, respectively. Predictors of depressive symptoms were female gender, obesity, harmful alcohol use, smoking, low leisuretime physical activity, awareness of hypertension, and poor self-rated health. Among those with poor self-rated health, increased depressive symptoms modified their perception of physical health. Increased non-melancholic depressive symptoms increased risk for cardiovascular morbidity and all-cause mortality compared to not having increased depressive symptoms even in adjusted models ...

Study Purpose: The specific aims of SAGE as currently formulated are: To obtain reliable, valid and comparable data on levels of health on a range of key domains for older adult populations; to examine patterns and dynamics of age-related changes in health using longitudinal follow-up of survey respondents as they age, and to investigate socio-economic consequences of these health changes; to supplement and cross-validate self-reported measures of health and the anchoring vignette approach to improving comparability of self-reported measures, through measured performance tests for selected health domains; to collect data on health examinations and biomarkers to improve reliability of data on morbidity, risk factors and monitor effect of interventions. Additional objectives include: To generate large enough cohorts of older adult populations and comparison cohorts of younger populations for follow-up of intermediate outcomes, monitoring trends, examine transitions and life events, and address ...
Objective. - Studies investigating indicators of recovery from schizophrenia yielded two concepts of recovery. The first is the reduction of psychiatric symptoms and functional disabilities (clinical recovery), while the second describes the individual adaptation process to the threat posed to the individual sense of self by the disorder and its negative consequences (personal recovery). Evidence suggests that both perceptions contribute substantially to the understanding of recovery and require specific assessment and therapy. While current reviews of measures of clinical recovery exist, measures of personal recovery have yet to be investigated. Considering the steadily growing literature on recovery, this article gives an update about existing measures assessing personal recovery ...

Abstract: In order to understand how a labor market for human computation functions, it is important to know how workers search for tasks. This paper uses two complementary methods to gain insight into how workers search for tasks on Mechanical Turk. First, we perform a high frequency scrape of 36 pages of search results and analyze it by looking at the rate of disappearance of tasks across key ways Mechanical Turk allows workers to sort tasks. Second, we present the results of a survey in which we paid workers for self-reported information about how they search for tasks. Our main findings are that on a large scale, workers sort by which tasks are most recently posted and which have the largest number of tasks available. Furthermore, we find that workers look mostly at the first page of the most recently posted tasks and the first two pages of the tasks with the most available instances but in both categories the position on the result page is unimportant to workers. We observe that at least ...

The self-reported measure of everyday IADL function was the summation of the IADL difficulty sub-scores from the Minimum Dataset - Home Care (MDS-HC) which assesses performance in the past 7 days on 19 daily tasks spanning meal preparation, housework, finances, health care, telephone, shopping, travel, and need for assistance in dressing, personal hygiene, and bathing. For the analysis, the reversed score was used and the possible range of the reversed everyday IADL function outcome is 0 to 38. Higher values for the reversed scores represent a better outcome. Changes in outcome were computed as 10 year minus baseline and the negative values indicate the decline from baseline ...
