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 ...

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;

The new study involved 80 HIV-positive people in the Successful Aging Seniors With HIV (SASH) study, all between 50 and 70 years old. SASH members undergo a battery of neurocognitive tests encompassing seven domains. Study participants self-reported physical activity on an examiner-administrated International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ), which queries people on frequency and duration of walking, moderate physical activity, and vigorous physical activity over the past 7 days. IPAQ yields a continuous score based on minutes/week x intensity for each activity level ...
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, ...
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 ...
Background: Self-reported height and weight has important economic, clinical and research value however little is known on the accuracy of self-reporting BMI among youth..
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 ...

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
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
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 ...

The Guide provides two methods for screening: a single question (about heavy drinking days) to use during a clinical interview and a written self-report instrument (the AUDIT-see page 11). The single interview question can be used at any time, either in conjunction with the AUDIT or alone. Some practices may prefer to have patients fill out the AUDIT before they see the clinician. It takes less than 5 minutes to complete and can be copied or incorporated into a health history. ...
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 ...

A tailored physiotherapy program improved self-reported functional outcomes and hip range of motion in patients undergoing hip resurfacing, say authors of a study published electronically ahead of print in April by the Clinical Rehabilitation journal.. The study was a randomized controlled trial with 6-, 16-, and 52-week follow-ups. It included 80 men with a median age of 56 who were listed for primary hip resurfacing surgery between 2009 and 2010. The authors, from the Physiotherapy Research Unit, Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust, Oxford, UK, compared tailored postoperative physiotherapy programs with standard physiotherapy. They found that at 1 year, the mean (SD) Oxford Hip Score of the group using the tailored program was higher than the control group at 45 versus 39.6, respectively. In addition, 80% (32 of 40) of the intervention group fully met their self-selected goal compared with 55% (22 of 40) of the control group.. The authors concluded that the ...

BackgroundThe quality of life of patients at all stages of hematological malignancy is greatly affected by the disease and its treatment. There is a wide range of health-related quality of life (HRQoL) issues important to these patients. Any new instrument developed to measure HRQoL of such patients should be content valid, i.e., the items should be comprehensively relevant to the patients and their health condition. The aim of the present study was to examine content validity of a hematological malignancy specific patient reported outcome measure (HM-PRO) developed for use in routine clinical practice.MethodsFollowing literature review and semi-structured interviews, the generated themes and sub-themes were discussed to develop the prototype version of the HM-PRO. A 4-step approach was used for content validation: initial testing and cognitive interviewing; item rating; content validity panel meeting; final field testing and cognitive interviewing. Additional questions related to patients perception

The electronic self report assessment - cancer (ESRA-C), has been shown to reduce symptom distress during cancer therapy The purpose of this analysis was to evaluate aspects of how the ESRA-C intervention may have resulted in lower symptom distress (SD). Patients at two cancer centers were randomized to ESRA-C assessment only (control) or the Web-based ESRA-C intervention delivered to patients homes or to a tablet in clinic. The intervention allowed patients to self-monitor symptom and quality of life (SxQOL) between visits, receive self-care education and coaching to report SxQOL to clinicians. Summaries of assessments were delivered to clinicians in both groups. Audio-recordings of clinic visits made 6 weeks after treatment initiation were coded for discussions of 26 SxQOL issues, focusing on patients/caregivers coached verbal reports of SxQOL severity, pattern, alleviating/aggravating factors and requests for help. Among issues identified as problematic, two measures were defined for each patient:
PURPOSE: Patient-reported outcomes are increasingly used in routine outpatient cancer care to guide clinical decisions and enhance communication. Prior evidence suggests good patient compliance with reporting at scheduled clinic visits, but there is limited evidence about compliance with long-term longitudinal reporting between visits. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients receiving chemotherapy for lung, gynecologic, genitourinary, or breast cancer at a tertiary cancer center, with access to a home computer and prior e-mail experience, were asked to self-report seven symptomatic toxicities via the Web between visits. E-mail reminders were sent to participants weekly; patient-reported high-grade toxicities triggered e-mail alerts to nurses; printed reports were provided to oncologists at visits. A priori threshold criteria were set to determine if this data collection approach merited further development based on monthly (≥ 75% participants reporting at least once per month on average) and weekly ...

Background: Investigating the validity of the self-reported values of weight allows for the proper assessment of studies using questionnaire-derived data. The study examined the accuracy of gender-specific self-reported weight in a sample of adults. The effects of age, education, race and ethnicity, income, general health and medical status on the degree of discrepancy (the difference between self-reported weight and measured weight) are similarly considered. Methods: The analysis used data from the US Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Self-reported and measured weights were abstracted and analyzed according to sex, age, measured weight, self-reported weight, and body mass index (BMI). A proportional odds model was applied. Results: The weight discrepancy was positively associated with age, and negatively associated with measured weight and BMI. Ordered logistic regression modeling showed age, race-ethnicity, education, and BMI to be associated with the degree of ...

The objective of this study was to assess the impact of certolizumab pegol (CZP) treatment on health-related quality of life (HRQoL), fatigue and other patient-reported outcomes (PROs) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Patients with active RA (N = 982) were randomized 2:2:1 to subcutaneous CZP (400 mg at weeks 0, 2 and 4; followed by CZP 200 mg or 400 mg) plus methotrexate (MTX) every other week, or placebo (PBO) plus MTX. PRO assessments included HRQoL, fatigue, physical function, arthritis pain and disease activity. Adjusted mean changes from baseline in all PROs were obtained using analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) applying last observation carried forward (LOCF) imputation. The proportion of patients achieving clinically meaningful improvements in each PRO was obtained using logistic regression and by applying non-responder imputation to missing values after rescue medication or withdrawal. The correlations between PRO responses and clinical responses were also assessed by tetrachoric

The European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) general population survey (GPS) indicator focuses on estimates of the prevalence and patterns of drug use in the European Union (EU) Member States, Norway and Turkey. The EMCDDA monitors data from national and school surveys based on representative, probabilistic samples. The surveys consist of self-reported data on present and past drug use, personal characteristics, and knowledge and attitudes regarding drugs or other related topics (e.g. health topics). Metadata on factors likely to influence the interpretation, validity and reliability of the data are also collected, and the results are reported in the Data and statistics section (Statistical Bulletin) of the European Drug Report.. The EMCDDA encourages countries to harmonise their data collection and reporting (1) Nevertheless, differences in survey methodology will influence the interpretation and comparability of the results. It is important to be aware of changes in the ...

Background: Epidemiologic studies examining physical activity have used self-report or the preferred objective measurement devices of pedometers or accelerometers. NHANES 2003-2004 used remuneration, in-person and express mail methods to obtain accelerometer data from 7176 individuals with 4867 (68%) providing 4+ valid days of wear. Herein we describe the experience of another national epidemiologic study that used telephone and regular mail to obtain accelerometer data.. Methods: This is an ancillary study to REGARDS, a national, population-based, longitudinal study of 30,239 blacks and whites, aged , 45 years, enrolled January 2003-October 2007. Participants were recruited from communities across all 48 of the lower United States, and include residents of 1,855 of the 3,033 US counties. Baseline evaluations were conducted through computer-assisted telephone interview (CATI), self-administered questionnaires, and an in-home visit. Participants are followed by CATI every 6 months.

Follow-up was for 12 months. Data were collected between June 3, 2012, and October 27, 2013. The digital intervention included goal setting emails or text messages, which focused on improving diet and physical activity. Messages were tailored to the participants self-reported stage of change. The primary outcomes included change in MI risk score from baseline to 1-year follow-up. Secondary outcomes included change in the individual components of the risk score, including blood pressure, waist-to-hip ratio, glycated hemoglobin level, and the ratio of apolipoprotein B to apolipoprotein A. Genetic risk for MI was determined by counting the 9p21 risk alleles; results were provided to each participant at baseline.. ...
Time 1 depression was the strongest predictor of self-rated health at all points, independent of age and education. Education, mild activities, body mass index, delayed word recall, and smoking were all associated with self-rated health at each point and predicted mortality. Delayed word recall mediated the relationships of mild activity with health and mortality. Bidirectional mediation was found for the effects of mild activity and depression on health ...

ConclusionsSelf-rated health of the general US adult population in 2017 was similar to 2002, but after adjusting for health problems, scores were slightly higher in 2017. Sociodemographic shifts in age and education explain some of the differences in scores, and by removing health and sociodemographic factors, we found the VAS reveals self-rated health is slightly better in 2017 than 2002....

Finally, it is questionable whether it would even be possible for children to accumulate the daily volume of screen time (13.86 hours) and physical activity (5.89 hours) reported by children in the "High Activity/High Sedentary" cluster. If true, this would leave the children less than 5 hours per day for both schoolwork and sleep, suggesting that these values are not just unlikely but impossible.. As you can see from both of the above graphs, the self-report and objectively measured data dont match up very well. To put it simply, the objectively measured data suggests that the "High Sedentary" kids arent any more sedentary than their peers - they just have no sense of time!.

The standard advice has been to take 1 adult aspirin about 20 minutes before the dose. This works reasonably well for most people. Another approach I recently heard from a patient was to take 3/4 cup of applesauce directly before taking the dose (in this case it was 2000 mg a day). The patient reports she has had no trouble since. ...

It is still not known whether overweight men have different patterns and socio-demographic correlates of self-reported physical activity (PA) compared with normal-weight men. Thus, this study examined the perceived PA patterns and associated socio-demographic factors among normal-weight and overweight Japanese men. Data were analyzed for 1,420 men (aged 44.48.3years) who responded to an Internet-based cross-sectional survey relating to socio-demographic variables, BMI status, and a short version of the International Physical Activity Questionnaire. Mann-Whitney, chi-square, and binary logistic regression analyses were employed. Normal-weight men were significantly more likely to attain 150 minutes per week of moderate-to-vigorous PA than overweight men (26.6% vs. 21.3%; p=0.035), whereas there were no significant proportional differences in total PA and walking between the two BMI subgroups. With PA, a significant interaction was observed between BMI status and household income (p=0.004 for total PA; p
This large national survey of patients with RA or axSpA generated two principal results. First, almost one-fifth (17.2%) of evaluated patients had high fear scores, despite both diseases being typically well managed, and these scores were associated with psychological distress. Thus, the fears identified in this study may reflect psychological distress, and need to be addressed even in patients who have moderate to low disease activity. Second, we have developed the FAIR questionnaire: a disease-specific, psychometrically validated PRO to measure disease and treatment-related fears in patients with RA or axSpA. This instrument demonstrated acceptable psychometric properties: notably unidimensionality, high internal coherence, good discriminant validity and adequate test-retest stability. The FAIR is short (10 items), simple to score and may be a useful tool both in routine practice and clinical trials.. The strengths of this study include the size of the study population, the high level of ...
As competition for the best school and university places increases - a competition that has gone global over the past decade - parents often feel under pressure to push their children to succeed. The Tiger Mom phenomenon where children are dealt with harshly when they fail has received praise and criticism in equal measure. But how successful is it really?. A new study published recently in Scientific American magazine has concluded that parents who adopt this strategy are setting their children up for a lifetime of anxiety. Researchers collected childhood memories from more than 4,000 adults of all ages and correlated them with the participants self-reported mental health. The findings suggest that children with authoritarian parents will have a harder time adapting to adversity later in life.. The study was carried out by Greg Hajcak Proudfit, a clinical psychologist at Stony Brook University, who found that punitive parenting has such a powerful and persistent effect because it trains a ...
PALO ALTO, Calif., March 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Tonic Contracts with Providence St. Joseph Health for Groundbreaking Patient-Reported Outcomes Program.
PURPOSE: Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) are designed to assess patients perceived health states or health-related quality of life. However, PROMs are susceptible to missing data, which can affect the validity of conclusions from randomised controlled trials (RCTs). This review aims to assess current practice in the handling, analysis and reporting of missing PROMs outcome data in RCTs compared to contemporary methodology and guidance. METHODS: This structured review of the literature includes RCTs with a minimum of 50 participants per arm. Studies using the EQ-5D-3L, EORTC QLQ-C30, SF-12 and SF-36 were included if published in 2013; those using the less commonly implemented HUI, OHS, OKS and PDQ were included if published between 2009 and 2013. RESULTS: The review included 237 records (4-76 per relevant PROM). Complete case analysis and single imputation were commonly used in 33 and 15 % of publications, respectively. Multiple imputation was reported for 9 % of the PROMs reviewed. The
Obesity: Percentage of total population who have a BMI (body mass index) greater than 30 Kg/sq.meters (Data for Australia, Austria and Portugal is from 2002. All other data is from 2003). Obesity rates are defined as the percentage of the population with a Body Mass Index (BMI) over 30. The BMI is a single number that evaluates an individuals weight status in relation to height (weight/height2, with weight in kilograms and height in metres). For Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States, figures are based on health examinations, rather than self-reported information. Obesity estimates derived from health examinations are generally higher and more reliable than those coming from self-reports, because they preclude any misreporting of peoples height and weight. However, health examinations are only conducted regularly in a few countries (OECD ...
