Hope or hype : the obsession with medical advances and the high cost of false promises by Richard A Deyo( Book )
11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 577 libraries worldwide
"Hope or Hype outlines the hazards - from unnecessary treatment to actual harm or even death - of embracing medical advances without serious consideration of efficacy, long-term benefit, side effects, cost, and other critical factors. The book also provides a frank and sometimes startling look at how companies get us to buy into the need for the most expensive treatments, and even manipulate clinical trials and data in order to present the "right" result."--Jacket
Health status and health policy : quality of life in health care evaluation and resource allocation by Donald L Patrick( Book )
13 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 451 libraries worldwide
"This practical work provides a systematic guide to state-of-the-art development and application of health status and quality of life measures for health care policy and research. It explains how to allocate health resources by comparing costs and outcomes of alternative health policies to identify those with greatest benefit in relation to cost. The book outlines how to collect and organize data to calculate the cost per year of healthy life gained for competing interventions. The use of these data in a social and political decision-making process based on community values and objectives is then discussed. Valuable guidelines are presented for assessing health and quality of life in program evaluation, monitoring of health policy, clinical trials, and health services research. Each chapter contributes to the development and application of health and quality of life outcomes to the major health decisions in the 1990s, including preventing disease and promoting health, assessing the costs and benefits of technology, and improving health care access."--BOOK JACKET

Social indicators for health planning and policy analysis by Milton M Chen( Book )
4 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 5 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

The influence of multimorbidity on hospital, intensive care, and emergency department use at the end of life for patients with chronic conditions by Elizabeth A Wagner( file )
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Background: Multimorbidity, defined as 3 or more co-existing conditions, poses unique challenges for patients, providers, and the health care system overall. These challenges include accurate prediction of prognosis, delivery of appropriate care and provision of coordinated care. An understanding of the impact of multimorbidity on health care utilization at the end of life may provide insights into interventions that improve the quality of health care provided to patients with multimorbidity. Objective: To determine differences in hospital utilization at the end of life for patients with multimorbidity compared with patients with one or two chronic diseases. Research Design: Mortality follow-back analysis using Washington State death records and electronic health records of patients at UW Medicine. Population: Patients in the UW Medicine system who had at least one chronic condition and died between 2011 and 2015. Measures: Healthcare use in the last 30 days of life including hospitalization, emergency department use, intensive care unit admission, as well as 30-day hospital readmission in the last 90 days of life and death in hospital. Results: Patients with multimorbidity had significantly higher utilization in the last 30 days of life for each category than those with a single diagnosis (inpatient admission 0.33 vs 0.22, p<0.001; ED admission 0.04 vs 0.03, p<0.001; and ICU admission 0.26 vs 0.15, p<0.001.) In addition, patients with multimorbidity were more likely to have a 30-day readmission in the last 90 days of life (0.12 vs 0.08) and death in hospital (0.45 vs 0.36, p<0.01.) Specific combinations of diseases were associated with utilization that was not simply additive. Cancer and COPD particularly had significant and contrasting impacts on hospital utilization, with cancer generally lessening and COPD increasing the effects. Conclusion: Multimorbidity is associated with increased healthcare utilization at the end of life. However, individual combinations of chronic conditions result in unpredictable interactions. Providers must consider the multimorbidity and specific combinations of disease when determining a patient’s treatment plan. Further research will add understanding to these complex relationships
