Abstract Purpose This research explores how gender influences the experience of cancer care and proposes a new explanation for gender differences in posttraumatic growth among individuals who received blood or marrow transplantation as treatment for lymphoma. Methodology/approach We use mixed methods, combining quantitative examination of surveys with 180 survivors with qualitative findings from semi-structured face-to-face interviews with 50 survivors. Participants were 2–25 years after transpl...

Although a greater degree of personal obesity is associated with weaker negativity toward overweight people on both explicit (i.e., self-report) and implicit (i.e., indirect behavioral) measures, overweight people still prefer thin people on average. We investigated whether the national and cultural context – particularly the national prevalence of obesity – predicts attitudes toward overweight people independent of personal identity and weight status. Data were collected from a total sample of ...

This paper reports results of an experiment on the relationship between whites’ implicit racial bias and prosocial behavior toward blacks. We hypothesized that implicit anti-black bias would lead to less prosocial behavior (generosity with limited monetary resources). Consistent with our hypothesis, the results revealed that implicit anti-black bias, measured by the Implicit Association Test, had a negative effect on generosity toward blacks. This finding extends prior work by showing that impli...

This study uses data collected from adult U.S. residents in 2004 and 2005 to examine whether loneliness and life satisfaction are associated with time spent at home on various Internet activities. Cross-sectional models reveal that time spent browsing the web is positively related to loneliness and negatively related to life satisfaction. Some of the relationships revealed by cross-sectional models persist even when considering the same individuals over time in fixed-effects models that account ...

This study investigates racial and ethnic patterns in perceived non-adherence among American White, Black, Hispanic, and Asian health care users, using data from a national sample of recent health care users (N=5,124). We estimated multivariate logistic regression models of perceived non-adherence for all respondents and by respondents’ race/ethnicity. The results revealed that Blacks and Hispanics respectively had 39 percent and 36 percent lower odds of perceived non-adherence compared to White...

Patients' perceptions of racial and ethnic bias and discrimination in health care are not uncommon among minority health care users. Based on national studies, as many as 15 percent of Latinos/Latinas and 12 percent of blacks report that they had been judged unfairly or treated with disrespect by a health care provider because of their race or ethnicity (Lillie-Blanton et al. 2000). Twenty-three percent of blacks and 15 percent of Hispanics believe they would have received better medical care if...

We examine whether racial/ethnic/language-based variation in measured levels of patients' trust in a physician depends on the survey items used to measure that trust. Survey items include: (1) a direct measure of patients' trust that the doctor will put the patient's medical needs above all other considerations, and (2) three indirect measures of trust asking about expectations for specific physician behaviors, including referring to a specialist, being influenced by insurance rules, and perform...
