Response shift in self-rated health after serious health events in old age.

08:00 EDT 19th September 2017 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Response shift in self-rated health after serious health events in old age."

Although health generally deteriorates with advancing age, how older adults evaluate their health status (i.e., their self-rated health, SRH) remains rather positive. So far, however, little is known about how SRH in old age may change in the face of an abrupt health decline. Because change/stability in SRH may reflect not only change/stability in health but also changes in the meaning people assign to the concept of "health", response shift effects in SRH for people with and without a serious health event are investigated in the present study in the older general population.
