PURPOSE The aim of this study was to develop and ensure the content validity of a new patient-reported outcome measure, the Cancer Patient Empowerment Questionnaire (CPEQ), to measure the level of, desire for, and enablement of empowerment among cancer patients in follow-up. METHODS An iterative process based on: (i) empowerment theories by Zimmerman and Tengland, (ii) a systematic review of questionnaires measuring empowerment or related concepts among cancer patients, (iii) qualitative data fr...

Abstract Background Subclinical anxiety symptoms are associated with risk of impaired mental and physical health status, ventricular tachyarrhythmias and mortality, in patients with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD). This study evaluates the validity of the brief and new 4-item Anxiety Scale (ANX4) and its predictive value in relation to health status 12-months post ICD implantation. Methods A total of 288 ICD patients completed the ANX4 questionnaire. Factor analysis was performed...

AIMS: Psychosocial factors increase risk for incident heart disease and poor prognosis. In patients with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD), negative emotions have been associated with increased mortality risk, although the association with ventricular arrhythmias (VAs) is less consistent. Anger has been linked to incident ICD shocks, but no prospective study has examined the association of anger (state and trait) with mortality or VAs in the ICD population. In a consecutively recru...

According to the World Health Organization, palliative care must be available for everyone with life-threatening diseases. However, in daily practice the primary focus worldwide is on cancer patients. The aim of the article was to generate a national position statement as the first step in implementing palliative care in severe heart disease with focus on advanced heart failure, including tools to identify the need for and timing of palliative care and how palliative care could be organized in D...

Purpose To (i) describe changes in health-related quality of life (HRQoL) pre-operatively, at discharge, and 4 weeks after discharge following open heart surgery, (ii) compare the performance of the EuroQol Questionnaire (EQ-5D 5L) and the Kansas City Cardiomyopathy Questionnaire (KCCQ) against an anchor-based approach, and to (iii) investigate the association between HRQoL and 180-day readmission.

BACKGROUND: Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) screening for early detection of prostate cancer (PCa) may prevent some cancer deaths, but also may miss some cancers or lead to unnecessary and potentially harmful treatment. Therefore, involving patients in decision-making about PSA screening is recommended. However, we know little about the attitude of men regarding participation in decisions about PSA screening and how to assess such attitudes. The purpose of this paper is to describe patient and p...

BACKGROUND: The implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is the first-line treatment for the prevention of sudden cardiac death. Although most ICD recipients adapt well to living with the device, some struggle with ICD-related body image concerns (BICs). Because of lack of standardized questionnaires to assess BICs, we do not know the prevalence. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to develop a questionnaire that assesses self-reported ICD-related BICs. METHODS: Using a sequential, qualitat...

Abstract Background Anxiety has been associated with adverse clinical outcomes in patients who have received an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD). However, results are inconclusive likely due to different measures being used to assess anxiety. Hence, the current study aims to examine the prevalence and the association between anxiety, ventricular tachyarrhythmia's (VTa's) and all-cause mortality, respectively. Methods Patients who received an ICD for the first time were recruited from...

Abstract Objectives To examine the association between health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and mortality in patients with heart failure (HF). Background The potential association of HRQoL and mortality in patients with HF is unclear. We investigated this association in The Danish Study to Assess the Efficacy of Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICD) in Patients with Non-ischemic Systolic Heart Failure on Mortality (DANISH). Methods In DANISH, a total of 1116 patients with non-ischemic ...

BACKGROUND: Little is known about the effects of non-pharmacological interventions among medication-overuse headache (MOH) patients, although non-pharmacological approaches combined with pharmacological treatment are recommended. The objective was to evaluate the effect of an educational programme as an add-on to standard treatment. METHODS: Medication-overuse headache patients were randomized (1:1) in a single-centre setting to standard treatment with 12 weeks of education (I-group) versus stan...
