Hope or hype : the obsession with medical advances and the high cost of false promises by Richard A Deyo( Book )
7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 619 libraries worldwide
"Hope or Hype is a look at what drives the American obsession with medical miracles. Dr. Richard Deyo and Dr. Donald Patrick - both experts on the ethical and policy issues facing the medical community and its constituents - spread the blame for the parade of false promises and compromises, indicting in equal measure the pharmaceutical and equipment companies; the doctors and hospitals too quick to order unnecessary and costly surgeries and medications; the politicians and media all too eager for a signature issue or a good story; and our own relentless demand to be "made healthy.""
Health status and health policy : quality of life in health care evaluation and resource allocation by Donald L Patrick( Book )
10 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 466 libraries worldwide
This book has two major objectives. The first is to propose the Health Resource Allocation Strategy as a social and political process for comparing costs and outcomes of alternative policy options in the health and medical care arena to select interventions with greatest benefit in relation to cost. The second objective is to provide a reference for state-ofthe-art development and application of health status and quality of life measures for health care policy and research, including clinical applications. Not all policy applications of health- related quality of life involve resource allocation. Thus we present guidelines to assessment for use in program evaluation, monitoring of health policy, clinical trials, and health services research
Sociology as applied to medicine by Graham Scambler( Book )
16 editions published between 1982 and 1991 in English and held by 237 libraries worldwide
A concise, jargon-free introduction to medical sociology, for medical students with little time to devote to the subject.

Social indicators for health planning and policy analysis by Milton M Chen( Book )
2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Concept of health involves two dimensions: Level of function at a point in time and probability of transition to other levels at future times. This paper describes two purposed indices derived from this concept that describe different aspects of community wide health status and provide useful information for health policy decisions. The proposed function status index can be constructed using current data collection mechanisms and would significantly augment our knowledge of the level of well-being of the population. The other proposed index, value-adjusted life expectancy, would give a reasonable approximation of an ideal health status index, but would require collecting new kinds of data

Palliative care indicators associated with nurse-rated quality of dying in the intensive care unit by Michael L Meldahl( file )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Palliative care is important in the intensive care unit (ICU) but specific indicators of quality palliative care are not yet well understood. Objective: To identify palliative care quality indicators that are associated with nurse-ratings of the quality of dying for patients who die in the ICU. Cohort study using data from a multi-center trial of a hospital-based palliative care intervention. The study sample included patients who died in 14 Seattle-Tacoma ICUs from 2003-2008. The primary outcome was the single-item nurse rating of quality of dying (QOD-1). Palliative care quality indicators were: involvement of a social worker, involvement of a spiritual care provider, do not resuscitate (DNR) orders in place at time of death, life-sustaining treatment withheld/withdrawn, pain assessment in the last 24 hours of life, CPR avoided in last hour of life, family conference in first 72 hours of ICU admission, and prognosis discussion in first 72 hours of ICU admission. Higher nurse QOD-1 was associated with having DNR orders in place at time of death, withdrawing/withholding life-sustaining treatment, avoiding CPR in the last hour of life, and occurrence of a family conference in the first 72 hours of ICU admission (all p < 0.001). As rated by nurses, patients who had a family conference and avoided aggressive end of life procedures had a better dying experience. Improving end of life treatment planning may be important for increased quality of care for patients who die in the ICU
Influence of perspective on preferences for prostate cancer outcomes by Katharine Suzanne Gries( file )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The utility value is a necessary component of the cost-utility analysis (CUA). They can be obtained from various perspectives and using different methods. The relationship between elicitation methods and perspectives is unknown in prostate cancer. To quantify the difference in utility values comparing three different perspectives and disease-specific health states with a generic preference measure. Then to understand the sensitivity of the disease-specific utility value derived from three perspectives in a CUA model. Disease-specific health states were developed with attributes that varied across five health domains: sexual function, urinary function, bowel function, pain, and emotional well-being. Men with prostate cancer, men at risk for prostate cancer, and a sample from the general population were recruited to value the health states using standard gamble (SG) methodology and to complete the Health Utilities Index (HUI). Disease-specific utility values were modeled in a prostate cancer CUA to assess the sensitivity of the parameter estimate. 136 participants (n= 43 prostate cancer; n=40 at risk, n=49 general population) completed the study visit. Mean disease-specific utility values ranged from 0.46 to 0.85 for men with prostate cancer, 0.37 to 0.75 for men at risk, and 0.32 to 0.81 for the general population group. Mean HUI3 current health ratings: men with prostate cancer HUI3: 0.75 (SD=0.260), men at risk HUI3: 0.77 (SD=0.238), general population HUI3: 0.84 (SD=0.178). There were small differences in utility values comparing between perspectives and between the SG and HUI methods. While the incremental cost-effectiveness ratios were high and would not be considered cost-effective, using the perspective of the general population was more cost effective compared to the patient perspective. The utility values for men with prostate cancer support the hypothesis that patients experiencing the disease state (patient perspective) assign higher utility values to disease-specific health states. Utility values were higher when obtained by the generic, preference based measure compared to the disease-specific method. The CUA was sensitive to the change in utility value when holding all other parameters constant
