IJERPH, Vol. 17, Pages 794: Improving Environmental Capacities for Health Promotion in Support Settings for People with Intellectual Disabilities: Inclusive Design of the DIHASID Tool

This study aims to develop an asset mapping tool in collaboration with people with ID to gain insight into assets for healthy nutrition and physical activity in such settings. The tool is based on previous research and development continued in an iterative and inclusive process in order to create a clear, comprehensive, and usable tool. Expert interviews (n = 7), interviews with end-users (n = 7), and pilot testing (n = 16) were conducted to refine the tool. Pilot participants perceived the tool as helpful in pinpointing perceived assets and in prompting ideas on how to create inclusive environments with support for physical activity and healthy nutrition. This overview of assets can be helpful for mobilizing assets and building the health-promoting capacities of ID support settings.

CONCLUSIONS The results indicate that, although persons with disabilities can exhibit a wide functional range, they remain at risk of PUs and should be evaluated for proper preventive measures, including support surfaces and wheelchair cushions.

Drawing on advances in chronic pain metrics, a simplified Graded Chronic Pain Scale-Revised was developed to differentiate mild, bothersome, and high-impact chronic pain. Graded Chronic Pain Scale-Revised was validated among adult enrollees of 2 health plans (N = 2021). In this population, the prevalence of chronic pain (pain present most or every day, prior 3 months) was 40.5%: 15.4% with mild chronic pain (lower pain intensity and interference); 10.1% bothersome chronic pain (moderate to severe pain intensity with lower interference with life activities); and 15.0% high-impact chronic pain (sustained pain-related activit...

This study addresses the problem of long-term opioid use by chronic pain patients. The study involved a secondary analysis of unanalyzed data from a published study of 2 versions of cognitive-behavioural therapy-based interdisciplinary treatment for chronic pain. In this study, we examined whether the use of opioids by 140 chronic pain patients could be ceased sustainably over 12 months after participation in the comprehensive interdisciplinary pain management program aimed at enhancing pain self-management. On admission to the treatment, there were no significant differences between those patients taking or not taking opi...

Pain-related fear is typically associated with avoidance behavior and pain-related disability in youth with chronic pain. Youth with elevated pain-related fear have attenuated treatment responses; thus, targeted treatment is highly warranted. Evidence supporting graded in vivo exposure treatment (GET) for adults with chronic pain is considerable, but just emerging for youth. The current investigation represents the first sequential replicated and randomized single-case experimental phase design with multiple measures evaluating GET for youth with chronic pain, entitled GET Living. A cohort of 27 youth (81% female) with mix...

Conclusion: Self-management behaviors and HrQoL of CHD patients in Chinese communities were inadequate. There is a positive correlation between self-management behaviors and HrQoL among CHD patients in Chinese community settings. Therefore, it is critical to improve self-management behaviors and HrQoL of CHD patients in Chinese communities.Impact statement: Self-management behaviors were found to positively influence on HrQoL among CHD patients in Chinese community settings. It is necessary to develop the nursing intervention on self-management behaviors to enhance the HrQoL of CHD patients in Chinese communities. PMID...

"Lost Your Superpower"? Graphic Medicine, Voicelessness, and Georgia Webber's Dumb. Perspect Biol Med. 2020;63(1):207-217 Authors: Venkatesan S, Dastidar DG Abstract Unlike deafness and disability, speech-related disorders-voluntary/involuntary voicelessness, mutism, and their imperatives-have largely remained undertheorized both as scholarship and praxis. Given the primacy and over-privileging of vision, a consideration of the nature of voice/voicelessness is critical and urgent. Framed in metaphysical, metaphorical, and existential terms, Georgia Webber's graphic memoir Dumb (2018), which ...

Abstract Ruthie Weiss was born with white hair, but her parents did not consider the possibility of there being more to the story until they noticed that she was not visually tracking when she was just a month old. Thus began a long and continuing story of the discovery of Ruthie's albinism, her significant visual impairment, but also her courage and determination to do anything and everything her peers do, if not more. But this story is really about how her parents grew to embrace the impact Ruthie (and importantly Ruthie's disability) had on their lives and the lives of everyone with whom Ruthie interacted. The ...
