More adolescents with chronic physical illness are living into adulthood, and they require the development of proficient self-management skills to maintain optimal physical health as they transition into adult care services. It is often during this vulnerable transition period that deterioration in illness control is seen as a result of inadequate self-management skills and understanding of their chronic illness. Mobile technology has been proposed as an innovative opportunity to assist in improving the man...
One in 5 women experience mental illness in pregnancy or post partum. Universal preventive interventions have not lowered the incidence of perinatal mental illness, perhaps because those at highest risk were not targeted. Outside of pregnancy, chronic physical conditions are known to confer increased risk for mental illness. Our objective was to examine the association between chronic physical conditions and risk of perinatal mental illness.
Currently, some 50% of the US population has a chronic disease, creating an epidemic, and 86% of health care costs are attributable to chronic disease. The medical profession and its leadership did not recognize or respond appropriately to the rising prevalence of chronic disease. As a consequence, a health care crisis emerged, with inadequate access to care and quality of care together with excessive costs. In the years since the 1950s, when the chronic disease prevalence grew, the clinical literature did ...
Although early survival from sepsis has improved with timely resuscitation and source control, survivors frequently experience persistent inflammation and develop chronic critical illness. We examined whether increased copy number of endogenous alarmins, mitochondrial DNA, and nuclear DNA are associated with the early "genomic storm" in blood leukocytes and the development of chronic critical illness in hospitalized patients with surgical sepsis.
Occurrence, risk factors, and impact on daily life of chronic pain after critical illness have not been systematically studied.
To analyze the possibilities of the transition from care to the problem of chronic illness due to the need of regionalized municipal planning.
Self-compassion is a psychological skill associated with good mental health and adjustment to illness in the second half of life, but to date, few self-compassion-based interventions have been developed specifically for use in midlife and older adult cohorts. The purpose of this study was to develop and test the feasibility of a 4-week group self-compassion-based intervention designed to improve self-report and biological markers of well-being in midlife and older adult patients living with chronic illness.
Chronic cough is a distressing symptom and a common reason for people to seek health care services. It is a symptom that can indicate underlying tuberculosis (TB) and/or chronic airways diseases (CAD) including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and bronchiectasis. In developing countries including Malawi, provision of diagnostic services and clinical management of CAD is rudimentary, so it is thought that patients make costly and unyielding repeated care-seeking visits. There is, however,...
Although illness perceptions have significant implications for psychological morbidity in those diagnosed with a physical illness, the strength of this relationship in their family members remains understudied. The validity of findings is dependent on the quality of the instruments used; therefore, it is essential that psychometrically robust measures of illness perceptions are available. The purpose of this systematic review was to identify, assess and compare the psychometric properties of instruments des...
This study examined the association between perceived organizational justice (i.e., procedural justice and interactional justice) and reporting of illness to one's company (illness reporting) among Japanese employees with chronic diseases.
Chronic renal failure (CRF) is a serious disease that has become a burden on global and local economics and public health. In addition, non-thyroidal illness syndrome (NTIS) has become increasingly more prevalent in CRF patients.
There is growing evidence of the positive effects of electronic health (eHealth) interventions for patients with chronic illness, but implementation of such interventions into practice is challenging. Implementation strategies that potentially impact implementation outcomes and implementation success have been identified. Which strategies are actually used in the implementation of eHealth interventions for patients with chronic illness and which ones are the most effective is unclear.
Major life events have been associated with the onset of unexplained chronic fatigue (CF) and with variability in illness course. The purpose of this study was to characterize the associations of major life events with illness status over time.
Accessing care is challenging for adults with chronic conditions. The challenge may be intensified for individuals needing to travel long distances to receive medical care. Transportation difficulties are associated with poor medication adherence and delayed or missed care. This study investigated the relationship between those traveling greater distances for medical care and their utilization of programs to prevent and/or manage their health problems. It was hypothesized that those traveling longer distanc...
Endometriosis has a significant cost of illness burden in Europe, UK and the USA, with the majority of costs coming from reductions in productivity. However, information is scarce on if there is a differing impact between endometriosis and other causes of chronic pelvic pain, and if there are modifiable factors, such as pain severity, that may be significant contributors to the overall burden.
To determine whether illness perceptions, coping strategies, and sociodemographic and clinical variables are related to the quality of life (QoL) in adults with multiple chronic conditions (MCCs) living in China.
The Illness Invalidation Inventory (3*I) was designed to assess individuals' perceived invalidation regarding chronic pain experiences. However, no study has yet investigated the psychometric properties of the 3*I among individuals with chronic low back pain (CLBP). Given the personal and societal impact of CLBP and the potential for invalidation associated with this condition, the current study sought to examine the psychometric properties of the 3*I among individuals with CLBP.
Contemporary intensive care enables many critically ill patients to survive their initial illness; however, a small group of patients require a protracted stay in the intensive care unit (ICU), experiencing many complications throughout their illness. It is only when we understand the total illness experience from patients' and families' perspectives, as well as the complexity of care for healthcare professionals, that we can fully engage in developing services and promoting evidence-based practice to impro...
Since 1996, members of the Apsáalooke (Crow) Nation and faculty and students at Montana State University have worked in a successful community-based participatory research (CBPR) partnership, leading to increased trust and improvements in health awareness, knowledge, and behaviors. As major barriers to health and healthy behaviors have caused inequities in morbidity and mortality rates for multiple chronic diseases among the Apsáalooke people, community members chose to focus the next phase of research on...
The Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy (FACIT) is a measurement system that was developed to assess the health-related quality of life among patients with cancer and other chronic illnesses. The Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy- Fatigue (FACIT-F) is a 40-item questionnaire, and it is the one of most frequently used instrument to assess fatigue in cancer populations. The aim of the study is to evaluate the psychometric properties of the Arabic FACIT-F among patients diagnosed wi...
In the elderly, type 2 diabetes is a frequent chronic condition that requires the attention of health care. As patient involvement is a prerequisite for treatment, it seems crucial to assess psychosocial aspects, including patient's cognitive component of attitude towards the condition, as early as upon diagnosis. The aim of this study was to examine whether the cognitive illness representation in older female and male patients with type 2 diabetes is differentiated. Considering disease duration, we determi...
Chronic pancreatitis is a chronic fibro-inflammatory syndrome characterized by chronic pancreatic inflammation leading to fibrosis and scarring. Patients with this multifactorial debilitating illness often require endoscopic or surgical intervention for treatment. Radiologists play a crucial role in pre-therapeutic workup as well as post-treatment imaging of chronic pancreatitis. This review summarizes the most common surgical and endoscopic treatment options that are currently available for chronic pancrea...
In the US, disagreement over the biological basis of "chronic Lyme disease" has resulted in the institutionalization of two standards of care: "mainstream" and "Lyme-literate." For mainstream physicians, chronic Lyme disease is a "medically unexplained illness" that presents with an abundance of "symptoms" in the absence of diagnostic "signs." For Lyme-literate physicians, and complementary and alternative medicine practitioners more generally, symptoms alone provide sufficient evidence for medical explanat...
Family members of patients with severe illness are burdened with the care and participation in challenging decisions regarding medical treatment and care in addition to the challenges of their own lives. They express a wish for low-threshold support services. However, there are few publications on targeted interventions for the support of family members of patients with a serious illness.
