  • Possible ratings are: Normal, not at all ill Borderline mentally ill Mildly ill Moderately ill Markedly ill Severely ill Among the most extremely ill patients The Clinical Global Impression - Improvement scale (CGI-I) is a 7 point scale that requires the clinician to assess how much the patient's illness has improved or worsened relative to a baseline state at the beginning of the intervention. (wikipedia.org)
  • Factors
  • Possible hypotheses include: (1) an accelerated biological aging process, (2) wear and tear on the body over time, (3) the era of onset (i.e. rehabilitation and/or technology available at onset), (4) latent illness (i.e. metabolic changes that culminate in a variety of illnesses), and (5) environmental factors (2001, retrieved on March 28, 2012 from http://www.jik.com/awdrtcawd.html ).

(wikipedia.org)
  • renal
  • As individuals with disabilities continue to live longer there is an increased likelihood of secondary medical conditions (i.e. respiratory illness, renal failure, accidents, infections, etc.) related to aging and/or to an individual's particular disability. (naric.com)

  • patients
  • CONCLUSION: The non-correlation between the PASI and the quality of life questionnaire adapted to the Brazilian context in this work may be associated with a history of chronic disease, which implies greater acceptance of the illness, or may be related to the low income and social status of the patients studied.
