Family-Centered Care in Aphasia: Assessment of Third-Party Disability in Family Members With the Family Aphasia Measure of Life Impact

More than 50 years of research has demonstrated the profound effect that aphasia has on people with the condition and their family members. In the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health, the World Health Organization described the impact of an individual's health condition on a significant other as “third-party disability.” Recent research has described how third-party disability can occur in family members of people with aphasia post-stroke. Despite the extensive history and ongoing relevance of these findings, family-centered rehabilitation has been slow to integrate into clinical practice and policy. The aims of this article are (1) to provide an overview of third-party disability in family members of people with aphasia; (2) to consider how third-party disability can be addressed through family-centered care and to identify some of the barriers to family-centered care; and (3) to describe The Family Aphasia Measure of Life Impact (FAMLI), a tool for measuring third-party functioning and disability in family members of people with aphasia, identifying family rehabilitation needs, and measuring outcomes of family-centered care.

Authors: Pinals DA, Callahan L Abstract The sequential intercept model (SIM) is used to reduce the penetration of persons with mental illness and substance use disorders in the criminal legal system. Its framework recommends identifying individuals with mental illness at various decision points of criminal case processing, from arrest to return from incarceration, so that they can be diverted toward treatment rather than permeate deeper into the criminal justice system. Communities frequently use the model to augment and inform jail diversion services. Despite the model's widespread adoption, individuals with serio...

Authors: Andrade C Abstract Many observational studies have found an association between antidepressant drug prescription during pregnancy and neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism spectrum disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and intellectual disability. The results of such studies cannot be considered conclusive because of the possible presence of inadequately measured, unmeasured, and unknown confounds. In this context, maternal anemia before or at but not after 30 weeks of gestation was recently associated with an increased risk of all 3 of these neurodevelopmental disorders. Additionally, ...

CONCLUSION: A short-term, lay-coach-facilitated Tele-BA is a promising intervention for the growing numbers of homebound older adults lacking social connectedness. The intervention holds promise for scalability in programs that already serve homebound older adults. More research is needed to solidify the clinical evidence base, cost-effectiveness and sustainability of Tele-BA delivered by lay coaches for homebound and other older adults.

AbstractThe benefits and risks of acute reperfusion therapy (RT) in acute ischaemic stroke (AIS) remain uncertain in older patients, especially in nonagenarians. We aimed to assess the impact of RT in this population. Single-center retrospective cohort study comparing patients  ≥ 90 years old admitted to a Stroke Unit (2008–2018) with AIS, submitted or not to RT [intravenous thrombolysis(IVT), mechanical thrombectomy(MT) or both]. Baseline characteristics, in-hospital complications and 3-month outcomes were compared. The primary outcome was 3-month “favorable o utcome”, defined as mo...

There is a lack of clarity about the New York State Task Force guidelines on ventilator allocation. I believe disability rights concerns regarding the recommendations on chronic ventilator users are well-founded. This lack of clarity may cost lives. The post Do New York State’s Ventilator Allocation Guidelines Place Chronic Ventilator Users at Risk? Clarification Needed appeared first on The Hastings Center.

Abstract The aim of this paper is to integrate different bodies of research including brain traveling waves, brain neuromodulation, neural field modeling and post-stroke language disorders in order to explore the opportunity of implementing model-guided, cortical neuromodulation for the treatment of post-stroke aphasia. Worldwide according to WHO, strokes are the second leading cause of death and the third leading cause of disability. In ischemic stroke, there is not enough blood supply to provide enough oxygen and nutrients to parts of the brain, while in hemorrhagic stroke, there is bleeding within the enclosed ...
