52263. Functional Outcomes and Quality of Life in Patients Undergoing Surgery for Rectal Cancer

. Clinically, bowel, bladder and sexual dysfunction seem to affect quality of life (QOL), although this has never been well studied. It is important to quantify the extent of impairment so that it can be used to educate patients preoperatively. However, translating these data to clinicians and patients remains challenging, and efforts to convey the data in a meaningful manner preoperatively constitute an important element in managing patient expectations. By understanding patients' baseline needs (...) , expectations and satisfaction at the time of the preoperative consent, we can begin to develop novel preoperative strategies for educating patients about postoperative function and quality of life in a meaningful manner, so that they may better adapt after surgery. We ultimately plan to use data from this study to develop and subsequently evaluate the role of an educational tool outlining functional outcomes after rectal cancer surgery.

and as such they are especially vulnerable. Recent studies suggest that blood pressure control of patients with hypertension improves when pharmacists provide patients with education and monitoring.

This study aims to develop and test, as a randomized controlled trial, a multileveled pharmacy-based program that incorporates patient education materials and medication packaging that target patients with low health literacy.

Patients in the intervention group received verbal and written education (...) , icon-based labeling of their medication containers, and therapeutic monitoring. A main objective of the pharmacist was to reinforce primary care providers’ instructions to the patient. The pharmacist educated patients about their medications, identified barriers to appropriate drug use, coached patients on overcoming drug use barriers, and coordinated drug use for these patients with primary care providers. Patients in the usual care (control) group did not receive the intervention and also served

52273. Similar prediction of mortality by the health assessment questionnaire in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and the general population. (PubMed)

Similar prediction of mortality by the health assessment questionnaire in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and the general population. The self report health assessment questionnaire (HAQ) quantifies disability in activities of daily living (ADL). In patients with rheumatoid arthritis, the HAQ predicts mortality, work disability, and hip replacement surgery. It has been widely used in rheumatology, but population based data are rare.To determine whether the HAQ predicts mortality in patients (...) with rheumatoid arthritis (n = 1095) and community controls (n = 1490).A mailed questionnaire including the HAQ, visual analogue scales for pain and global health, comorbidities, education level, height, weight, and smoking status was administered in June 2000. Two years later, the vital status of the subjects was ascertained from the Finnish Population Register database.There were 41 deaths (10.1%) among the 404 patients with rheumatoid arthritis who had a baseline HAQ > or =1 (indicating at least some

While it is possible to have very high overall retention rates, certain types of databanks (smaller, inner-city-based, and university-based) are more likely to be biased due to selective retention of older, more educated Caucasian patients.

. The ABCD (age, blood pressure, clinical features, duration) scoring system was retrospectively applied to each patient who presented with a TIA (pre-education (Pre) group). Doctors were then educated on the use of the scoring system, and the system was used for a further 3 months. Patients with high scores were admitted, and those with low scores were reviewed at the hospital's TIA clinic. The authors reviewed the notes retrospectively and each patient was scored again, based on the information (...) available (post-education (Post) group). The number of appropriate admissions was compared using the chi2 test.37 patients matched the inclusion criteria in the Pre group and 38 patients in the Post group. Baseline characteristics of the groups were similar. There was a significant reduction in the number of patients admitted in the Post group, but the appropriateness of the admission was significantly greater (p<0.01). There were no inappropriate discharges in the Post group.The ABCD scoring system

Patient perceptions of the risks and benefits of infliximab for the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease. For a patient to make informed, preference based decisions, they must be able to balance the risks and benefits of treatment. The aim of this study was to determine patients' and parents' perceptions of the risks and benefits of infliximab for the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).Adult patients with IBD and parents of patients attending IBD patient education symposiums were (...) presented a scenario of a hypothetical new drug for IBD with risks mirroring those estimated for infliximab, 64% of respondents indicated that they would not take the medication, despite its described benefits. Thirty percent of these patients were either currently taking or had previously taken infliximab. Patients actively taking infliximab predicted the highest remission rates for the infliximab (P = 0.05), and parents of patients predicted the lowest (P = 0.01). Parents estimated a higher risk
