Multimorbidity is commonly defined and measured using condition counts. The UK National Institute for Health Care Excellence Guidelines for Multimorbidity suggest that a medication-orientated approach could be used to identify those in need of a multimorbidity approach to management.
This study analyzed the association between multimorbidity, depression and quality of life among the elderly in the Family Health Strategy (FHS). A cross-sectional study was conducted among the elderly in the FHS in Senador Guiomard (State of Acre). The study employed the Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS-15) and the Quality of Life Questionnaire (WHOQOL-BREF). Differences in descriptive variables in elderly people with and without multimorbidity were estimated using Pearson's chi-squared test, while the asso...
Worldwide maternal mental illness poses a major public health issue. Supporting maternal mental health and family health is a core aspect of home visiting. Increasingly the benefits of family focused treatments to maternal mental illness are being recognised. However, there are few reliable and valid measures that attempt to assess this type of practice.
Family-focused practice improves outcomes for families where parents have a mental illness. However, there is limited understanding regarding the factors that predict and enable these practices. This study aimed to identify factors that predict and enable mental health nurses' family-focused practice. A sequential mixed methods design was used. A total of 343 mental health nurses, practicing in 12 mental health services (in acute inpatient and community settings), throughout Ireland completed the Family Foc...
The impact of different patterns of multimorbidity in heart failure (HF) on health outcomes is unknown.
The latest review of studies on multimorbidity patterns showed high heterogeneity in the methodology for identifying groups of multimorbid conditions. However, it is unclear how analytical methods used influence the identified multimorbidity patterns.
Glycated hemoglobin (HbA) measuring has a critical role in the monitoring and diagnosis of diabetes. So, the analytical performance of its measuring method must be acceptable. Clinical laboratories should continuously monitor the performance of their commercial methods, both by using proper internal quality control (IQC) and by participating in external quality assessment schemes (EQAS).
Multimorbidity and depressive symptoms (DSs) are common in older adults. Self-rated health (SRH) allows detection of elderly adults with a high burden of multimorbidity plus depression. The aim of this study was to test the association of groups of multimorbidity and DS on SRH in Colombian older adults.
Recent guidance by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) focuses on the management of people with multimorbidity, including Parkinson's disease (PD). To date there has been little exploration of this in neurodegenerative diseases. This study aimed to explore the associations between multimorbidity, motor severity and quality of life (QoL) in early PD. Regression analyses determined whether multimorbidity was significantly associated with disease severity and QoL. Multimorbidity was a ...
Very few studies have examined trends in multimorbidity over time and even fewer have examined trends over time across different body mass index (BMI) groups. Given general decline in death rates but increased cardiovascular risk factors among individuals with obesity, the trend in the association between obesity and multimorbidity is hypothesized to be increasing over time. The data for our study came from the 1996-97 National Population Health Survey and the 2005-06 and 2012-13 Canadian Community Health S...
Frailty and multimorbidity are independent prognostic factors for mortality, but their interaction has not been fully explored. We investigated the importance of multimorbidity patterns in older adults with the same level of frailty phenotype.
There are numerous definitions of multimorbidity (MM). None systematically examines specific comorbidity combinations accounting for multiple testing when exploring large datasets.
Patients with chronic migraine (CM) display a considerable amount of comorbidities, particularly psychiatric and cardiovascular, and the presence of multiple comorbidities, i.e. the so-called multimorbidity, is a risk factor for migraine chronification or maintenance of CM. Our aim is to address the rate and impact of multimorbidity in patients with CM and medication overuse headache (MOH).
To add evidence to the relationship between multimorbidity and healthcare expenditure.
Depression and anxiety are among the most prevalent disorders in primary care. City dwelling is commonly cited as a risk factor for mental disorders, but epidemiological evidence for this relationship is inconclusive.
A common characteristic of patients seen at the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) is a high number of concurrent comorbidities (i.e. multimorbidity). This study (i) examines the magnitude and patterns of multimorbidity by race/ethnicity and geography; (ii) compares the level of variation explained by these factors in three multimorbidity measures across three large cohorts. We created three national cohorts for Veterans with chronic kidney disease (CKD:n = 2,190,564), traumatic brain injury (TBI:n ...
Family members often provide significant support and care to their relative who has a mental illness. Nonetheless, how family members might be part of an individual's mental health recovery journey is rarely considered. The aim of this study was to investigate how those with a mental illness define 'family' and the role of family (if any) in their recovery journey. A qualitative approach was used. Purposive sampling and snowballing were used to recruit and conduct semi-structured interviews with 12 people w...
Educational debt is increasing and may affect physicians' career choices. High debt may influence family medicine residents' initial practice setting and fellowship training decisions, adversely affecting the distribution of primary care physicians. The purpose of this study was to determine whether debt was associated with graduating family medicine residents' practice and fellowship intentions.
People with multimorbidity, especially older people, have complex health and social needs, and require an integrated care approach. In this respect, eHealth could be of support. This paper aims to describe the implementation of eHealth technologies in integrated care programs for people with multimorbidity in Europe, and to analyse related benefits and barriers according to outcomes from ICARE4EU study and within the more general conceptual framework of the "10 e's" in eHealth by Gunther Eysenbach.
Physical functioning indexed multimorbidity is strongly associated with long-term mortality, but its role in poor mental health has not been quantified.
the study aimed to assess nurses' perceptions of family-centred care and how they applied the family-centred model of care in everyday practice. The model aims to involve families in the care of hospitalised children and to promote a cooperative relationship between parents and nurses.
Multimorbidity is an increasing challenge in geriatric medicine, also in psychiatric patients. The question arises where an adequate treatment should be carried out.
In Canada, rural-based family medicine residency programs were established largely in response to a shortage of rural physicians and the perception that urban-based training programs were not meeting the needs of rural populations. Examinations of practice patterns of physicians trained in rural and urban programs are lacking. The purpose of this study was to compare the scope of practice of family medicine graduates who completed a rural versus an urban residency program, by practice location.
