OBJECTIVE: African American (AA) women have disproportionately high rates of cardiovascular (CV) risk factors that, coupled with potentially cardiotoxic breast cancer (BC) therapies, place them at risk of adverse CV outcomes. The purpose of this study was to assess CV risk factors among white and AA BC survivors and perceptions of patient-provider CV-related communication and post-treatment information needs. METHODS: Early-stage, English-speaking BC survivors were recruited through community-based survivorship organizations/clinics in New Jersey...

OBJECTIVES: Medication adherence is a complex problem and can be evaluated using a variety of methods. There is no single or perfect strategy to assess adherence. The "best" measure depends on contextual factors. Our objective is to provide a practical, illustrative guide for selecting the most appropriate measure of medication adherence in common contexts. METHODS: We present three case studies - from the perspectives of an academic researcher, health care payer, and clinical care provider - to describe common problems and processes for measuring medication adherence, as well as proposing possible solutions...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the psychometric properties of questions that assess patient perceptions of patient-provider communication and design measures of patient-centered communication (PCC). METHODS: Participants (adults with colon or rectal cancer living in North Carolina) completed a survey at 2 to 3 months post-diagnosis. The survey included 87 questions in six PCC Functions: Exchanging Information, Fostering Health Relationships, Making Decisions, Responding to Emotions, Enabling Patient Self-Management, and Managing Uncertainty...

OBJECTIVE: Health websites are becoming important sources for cancer information. Lay users, patients and carers seek support for critical decisions, but they are prone to common biases when quantitative information is presented. Graphical representations of risk data can facilitate comprehension, and interactive visualizations are popular. This review summarizes the evidence on computer-supported graphs that present risk data and their effects on various measures. METHODS: The systematic literature search was conducted in several databases, including MEDLINE, EMBASE and CINAHL...

OBJECTIVE: 1) to assess patients' descriptions of concerns, and 2) to inform a conceptual framework in which the impact of the nature of concerns on doctor-patient communication is specified. METHODS: Six focus groups were conducted with 39 cancer patients and survivors. In these focus groups participants were asked to describe their concerns during and after their illness. RESULTS: Concerns were described as instrumental concerns (e.g., receiving insufficient information) and emotions (e...

OBJECTIVE: Hospitals report cards (HRC) are publicly available Internet websites that provide patients with quality-related information on hospitals and enable hospital comparisons. We aim to identify factors that explain the (intended) use of HRC, including differences between current users and non-users. METHODS: Drawing on UTAUT (Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology), a cross-sectional study was conducted. Data were derived from an online survey with 1350 respondents and analyzed using structural equation modeling...

This story is a reflection on the concept of friendship and forgiveness, on belief in change and the difficulty in letting go. It is presented through the story of two elderly patients, sisters-in-law, next-door neighbors and friends, treated by the same family physician. A trivial argument causes a rift between the two, severing a 60-year friendship. Five years later, as one lays dying in her home, the physician, accompanied by her nurse, attempts to reconcile between the two. The article includes the physician's reflections on this process, her role as a "multi-system" physician in these patient's lives and its impact on her work...

OBJECTIVE: Examine physicians' implementation of effective communication principles with patients with intellectual disabilities (ID) and its predictors. METHODS: Focus groups helped construct a quantitative questionnaire. The questionnaire (completed by 440 physicians) examined utilization of effective communication principles, attitudes toward individuals with ID, subjective knowledge and number of patients with ID. RESULTS: Subjective knowledge of ID and more patients with ID increased utilization of effective communication principles...

METHODS: A secondary data analysis was completed of a randomized clinical trial assessing tailored telephone counseling for colposcopy adherence after an abnormal screening Pap smear among 210 underserved inner-city women. RESULTS: Adherence to initial diagnostic colposcopy was significantly associated with greater self-efficacy (OR=1...

OBJECTIVE: Physical activity after cancer is associated with a lower rate of adverse effects and better survival. The objectives of this study were to assess the exercise levels of people living with and beyond cancer attending a local oncology unit, and explore their attitudes to supervised exercise referral. METHODS: 134 patients attending the oncology unit over a 2 month period were approached to complete a questionnaire about their exercise levels and barriers to exercise...

OBJECTIVE: Appropriate training strategies are required to equip undergraduate healthcare students to benefit from communication training with simulated patients. This study examines the learning effects of different formats of video-based worked examples on initial communication skills. METHODS: First-year nursing students (N=36) were randomly assigned to one of two experimental groups (correct v. erroneous examples) or to the control group (no examples). All the groups were provided an identical introduction to learning materials on breaking bad news; the experimental groups also received a set of video-based worked examples...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to identify studies on online health service use by people with limited health literacy, as the findings could provide insights into how health literacy has been, and should be, addressed in the eHealth era. METHODS: To identify the relevant literature published since 2010, we performed four rounds of selection-database selection, keyword search, screening of the titles and abstracts, and screening of full texts. This process produced a final of 74 publications...

OBJECTIVE: To examine whether patient activation is predictive of the course of diabetes over a three year period among patients with and without diabetes. METHODS: Longitudinal analyses utilized electronic health record data from 2011 to 2014. We examined how the patient activation measure (PAM) was predictive of 2014 diabetes-related outcomes among patients with diabetes (n=10,071); pre-diabetes (n=1804); and neither diabetes nor pre-diabetes (n=46,402). Outcomes were clinical indicators (blood pressure, cholesterol, and trigylcerides), costly utilization, and progression from no diabetes to pre-diabetes or diabetes...

OBJECTIVE: To identify inter-individual examiner factors associated with interrater reliability in a summative communication OSCE in the 4th study year. METHODS: The OSCE consists of 4 stations assessed with a 4-item 5-point global rating instrument. A bivariate secondary analysis of interrater reliability in relation to 4 examiner factors (gender, profession, OSCE experience, examiner training) was conducted. Intraclass correlation coefficients (ICC) were calculated and compared between examiner dyads of different similarity...
