The Anxiety Level of Caregivers of Neurological Patients with Dysphagia

AbstractWe aimed to investigate anxiety level of caregivers of neurological patients with dysphagia, and the relationship of patient-related factors to anxiety level of dysphagia caregivers. A total of 103 adult neurological patients with dysphagia (study group), 30 without dysphagia (control group), and their primary caregivers were included. Types of feeding, condition of dependency in eating and drinking, dysphagia duration, and history of previous dysphagia treatment were recorded for study group. In study group, the Turkish version of the Eating Assessment Tool-10 (T-EAT-10) was used to determine dysphagia symptom severity. Penetration and aspiration severity was determined with the penetration –aspiration scale (PAS). The Spielberger State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) that has two subscales including state anxiety (S-STAI) and trait anxiety (T-STAI) was used to determine anxiety level of caregivers. There was no difference between groups in terms of age, gender, weight, and height. Th e mean S-STAI was 42.56 ± 10.10 for the study group and 29.20 ± 6.64 for the control group (p

I am an AMG with 230+ for Step 1 and Step 2CK; CS pass 1st attempt. Applied to 40 programs, got 22 invites - I could only schedule 17 interviews max due to scheduling conflicts and rotation obligations. I am not a good interviewer and have quite a bit of anxiety. I see on 2016 NRMP Charting the Outcomes that someone (Allopathic Senior) had>16 ranks and did not match for Neurology. I am now scared. How likely is it that I do not match after ranking 17 programs?

Moving along the treadmill of life, many of us succumb to the ever-present pressures to be faster, stronger, more efficient, and smarter. Perspective on what is happening in our lives is lost. We focus on failure and lacking within ourselves, rather than the abundance and opportunities for growth that surround us. We stop taking the time to appreciate the simple pleasures of our lives as we spiral our way into a depleted existence — physically, emotionally, and mentally. Now more than ever, there is a global need to circumvent this pattern of being. We need to learn to unconditionally love and appreciate ourselves ju...

No one starts off in life wanting to worry about money. In fact, most of us dream of achieving wonderful things, including the ability to buy what we want, when we want it. It’s only after a series of disappointments — some call them hard knocks — that we come to the realization that money only goes so far. If we fail to learn the lessons of budgeting and saving, we’re destined to keep running into financial problems. This can lead to many a sleepless night, accompanied by worry and depression about finances. Finding a path from what I’ll call financial illiteracy to being more financially sav...

This study examined the relationship between primary care clinic engagement in PC-MHI and use of different MHS services. METHODS: This was a retrospective longitudinal cohort study of 66,638 primary care patients with mental illnesses in 29 Southern California Veterans Affairs clinics (2008-2013).

Authors: Wijeratne C, Peisah C, Earl J, Luscombe G Abstract OBJECTIVES: Demographic, physical and psychological associations of successful aging (SA) have been evaluated, but occupational factors have not.

METHODS: Physicians aged 55+ years completed self-ratings of occupational and personal SA on a 10-point visual analogue scale (VAS; 1 being "least successful" and 10 "most successful"). Ass...
