Recognition of the importance of oral health intervention during pregnancy and oral health infrastructures have substantially grown over the last several years. This art...

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 ...
