This study examined whether physical activity (PA) explained the association between elevated serum levels of inflammatory markers and subsequent depressive symptoms. Design Prospective cohort design. Method The sample consisted of 3809 non-depressed men and women (aged 50+) recruited from the English Longitudinal Study of Agei...

An earlier diagnosis is a key strategy for improving the outcomes of patients with cancer. However, achieving this goal can be challenging, particularly for the growing number of people with one or more chronic conditions (comorbidity/multimorbidity) at the time of diagnosis. Pre-existing chronic diseases might affect patient participation in cancer screening, help-seeking for new and/or changing symptoms and clinicians’ decision-making on the use of diagnostic investigations. Evidence suggests,...

Aim: the aim of this project was to implement and evaluate a new way of delivering the Promoting Early Presentation (PEP) Intervention during flu vaccination appointments in primary care. The PEP Intervention is a 1–minute intervention, accompanied by a booklet and delivered by primary care health professionals to provide older w...

However, the exact mechanisms underlying the relationship between inflammation and depression remain elusive. This study examined whether sleep explained the association between elevated levels of inflammatory markers and subsequent depressive symptoms in an English nationally representative sample. Methods The sample consisted of 2953 men and women (aged 50+) recruited from the English Longitudinal Study...

ObjectiveIn a randomized controlled trial, the Promoting Early Presentation intervention increased older women’s breast cancer awareness after two years. We investigated whether this increase was sustained at three years, and the effect on breast screening self-referral.MethodsWe randomly allocated 867 women attending their final invited breast screening appointment to the Promoting Early Presentation intervention or usual care. We examined breast cancer awareness after three years and breast sc...

Background Religion may provide coping strategies for stressful life events (SLEs). Aspects of religious practices and beliefs, e.g. provision of meaning in life, interpretation of difficult events and supportive social contact can all contribute to successful coping strategies. The aim of this project was to investigate if SLEs are associated with mental health and wellbeing in early old age and if religious practices and beliefs moderate these associations. Methods Participants were study memb...

Over the life course, we are invariably faced with some form of adversity. The process of positively adapting to adverse events is known as ‘resilience’. Despite the acknowledgement of 2 common components of resilience, that is, adversity and positive adaptation, no consensus operational definition has been agreed. Resilience operationalisations have been reviewed in a cross-sectional context; however, a review of longitudinal methods of operationalising resilience has not been conducted. The pr...
