Associations between having an informal caregiver, social support, and self-care among low-income adults with poorly controlled diabetes ( file )

Objective To determine whether the presence of an informal caregiver and the patient’s level of social support are associated with better diabetes self-care among adults with poorly controlled diabetes. Methods Cross-sectional study using baseline data from 253 adults of age 30–70 with poorly controlled diabetes. Participants who reported receiving assistance with their diabetes from a friend or family member in the past month were classified as having a caregiver. We used multivariate linear and logistic regression models to evaluate the associations between having a caregiver and level of social support with five self-reported diabetes self-care behaviors: diet, foot checks, blood glucose monitoring, medications, and physical activity. Results Compared to participants with no informal caregiver, those with an informal caregiver were significantly more likely to report moderate or high medication adherence (OR = 1.93, 95% CI: 1.07–3.49, p = 0.028). When we included social support in the model, having a caregiver was no longer significantly associated with medication adherence (OR = 1.50, 95% CI: 0.80–2.82), but social support score was (OR = 1.22, 95% CI: 1.03–1.45, p = 0.023). Discussion Among low-income adults with poorly controlled diabetes, having both an informal caregiver and high social support for diabetes may have a beneficial effect on medication adherence, a key self-care target to improve diabetes control
Rural residence, dual system healthcare use, and chronic wound utilization and outcomes among Northwest veterans by Erin DeFries Bouldin( file )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
As the prevalence of diabetes and peripheral artery disease rise, chronic lower limb wounds are an increasingly important public health issue. These wounds can impair mobility and reduce quality of life. We were interested in how two common Veteran characteristics, rural residence and dual system health care use, influenced wound care treatment and outcomes. Veterans living in rural areas typically have poorer health and lower health care utilization than urban Veterans and we hypothesized that wound healing would be lower among rural Veterans. Veterans who use the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) for health care also may be eligible for Medicare and may receive care outside of VHA. We hypothesized that dual system (VHA and Medicare) wound care use would result in fragmented care and therefore poorer wound healing than VHA-exclusive use. To test our hypotheses, we assembled a cohort of 160 rural and 160 urban VHA users in the Pacific Northwest with incident chronic (≥30 days) lower limb wounds between October 1, 2006 and September 30, 2007 and followed them for one year. We used Poisson models with robust standard errors to compare outpatient and inpatient wound care utilization. We used proportional hazards models to estimate the hazard ratio (HR) of wound healing, accounting for the competing risks of amputation and death, and adjusting for confounding by various factors based on the literature. Rural Veterans had lower outpatient wound care utilization (mean 6.8 versus 9.9 visits) and a similar hazard of wound healing (HR=1.11, 95% CI: 0.84-1.47, p=0.45) compared to urban Veterans. 71% of the cohort was enrolled in Medicare but only 13% of cohort members were dual system wound care users. Dual users had significantly higher observed utilization (mean 11.6 outpatient visits and 1.7 inpatient stays compared to 7.5 and 0.7, respectively) and a lower hazard rate of wound healing compared to VHA-exclusive users (HR=0.38, 95%CI: 0.25-0.56, p<0.001). Additional research is needed to replicate our findings and to understand the mechanisms underlying the differences in utilization and outcomes and to identify interventions to further improve wound healing among Veterans, particularly dual users
