David R Hodge, Conroy Reynolds
This study examined the relationship between eight dimensions of spirituality (and religion) and people with four different types of disability status: hearing, vision, physical mobility, and emotional or mental disabilities. The overarching aim was to identify specific spiritual-religious profiles within each disability population relative to the general population. To conduct this cross-sectional examination, the authors used nationally representative data from the General Social Survey in the United States...

Child adversity has a negative impact on child and adult health. The present study aimed to determine whether adverse family experiences (AFEs) were associated with use of preventive health care (PHC) among children and whether insurance status affected this association. This study examined data from the 2011-2012 National Survey of Children's Health (N = 88,849) and included responses for children ages zero to 17 years. Logistic regression models were used to estimate odds of using PHC from AFEs. Results were stratified by insurance status and confounders were accounted for...

Hospice provides holistic support for individuals living with terminal illness and to their caregivers during the bereavement period. However, some individuals who enroll in hospice services are decertified as they do not experience a decline in health as quickly as required by current regulations, a practice referred to as a live discharge. The interruption in care can affect the physical and psychosocial care needs for individuals and caregivers and leave hospice clinicians with questions about how to best support them...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of a six-month social worker intervention for participants with a glaucoma-related diagnosis in an urban ophthalmic setting (N = 40). The social worker assessed common barriers to eye care, helping participants with transportation, access to low-vision resources, and supportive counseling. The Distress Thermometer, Patient Health Questionnaire-9, and a satisfaction survey were administered to determine the effect of the social worker intervention and participants' overall impressions of the social worker...

Stress is a significant contributor to disease and often worsens pre-existing conditions. Little research to date has focused on stress and coping in black families, particularly black women. The present study examined how self-esteem affects family coping and problem solving among mothers and daughters (N = 119). Results indicate that black mothers had significantly higher amounts of self-esteem than did daughters, potentially signifying that many issues that reduce self-esteem have been resolved for mothers, whereas daughters might still be dealing with issues that lower their self-esteem...

The purpose of this article was to examine the average distance traveled to access an abortion procedure, rates of return for the procedure, and whether or not those living in rural zip codes were less likely to return for the abortion compared with residents in urban zip codes, in the context of a 48-hour in-person mandatory waiting period in Tennessee. Findings indicated that over 12 percent of patients who attended the in-person counseling session did not return for the procedure. Moreover, abortion patients in this study traveled an average of 50...

As the South is disproportionately affected by HIV/AIDS compared to other U.S. regions, Southerners are more likely to contract HIV and, given barriers to care, are at increased risk for morbidity and mortality. As part of a multistate interdisciplinary university-community HIV/AIDS partnership, community stakeholders described historical perspectives and traditions of the South contributing to disproportionate HIV/AIDS disease burden and unique regional challenges to HIV testing, linkage, and retention in HIV care...

Reproductive autonomy is necessary for one's overall well-being and is defined as the ability to decide and control issues of contraceptive use, pregnancy, and birth. Barriers to consistent contraceptive use persist, limiting an individual's ability to exercise reproductive autonomy. The present study investigated the prevalence of reproductive autonomy and gender beliefs among 468 university students (311 women and 157 men) in a rural setting. Participants completed surveys measuring reproductive autonomy, attitudes around gender beliefs, and demographic questions...

Social work professionals would benefit by including integrative medicine programs and practices in their framework of practice and service delivery to clients. In our rapidly changing health care environment, using a model that provides a more comprehensive and empowering approach to addressing the medical and psychological needs of our clients is warranted. Discussion of holistic social work practice and implications for social work education and training will be examined through a review of the research and clinical application of a mind-body program titled the Relaxation Response Resiliency Program (3RP)...

Studies on access to health care among Latinx communities have overlooked (a) the use of traditional healers and (b) the role of social networks in seeking traditional healers. Framed within the network-episode model, this study aimed to examine the role of individual, institutional, and personal network systems in the use of curanderxs among Latinxs in the United States. Using a nationally representative sample of Latinx adults (N = 3,997) from the 2007 Hispanic Healthcare Survey, authors conducted multivariate logistic regression analyses to investigate the impact of individual, institutional, and personal network systems on the use of curanderxs...

Jildyz Urbaeva, Theodore Jackson, Daejun Park
The importance of social capital and economic advantage for health is well established in literature. The relationship between health and social capital through informal financial aid is less understood. Using representative data (N = 7,474), authors explored an association between informal financial aid and health satisfaction in Kyrgyzstan, a post-socialist low-income country in Eurasia. Multilevel modeling revealed significant associations between informal aid and health. Cross-level interactions between individual and neighborhood financial aid were also significantly associated with health satisfaction...

The current study investigated the post-abortion health behaviors of adolescents. Authors assessed the association between pre-abortion interventions and receiving post-abortion checkups and uptake of effective contraceptives. Participants were 172 adolescents under 19 years of age who were recruited pre-abortion at 10 hospitals in Israel and followed up by phone one and two months post-abortion. Results indicate that a quarter of participants did not receive a post-abortion checkup. The reported reasons for this were mostly personal, with very few cases attributed to accessibility issues...
