Background: Results of several recent studies suggest that depression is predictive of incident coronary disease.

Methods and Results: Data are from the New Haven, Conn, cohort (N = 2812) of the Established Populations for the Epidemiologic Studies of the Elderly project. Baseline information on depressive symptoms and CHD risk factors was collected...

Depression and disability in activities of daily living (ADLs) are important clinical and public health problems in older persons. Both conditions are common and associated with substantial morbidity, increased use of health care services, and higher mortality risk (1–5). These conditions also are inextricably linked, with studies supporting each as a risk factor for the other; although, some research points to a stronger influence of disability on subsequent depression than that of depression o...

Although socioeconomic status (SES) has been to shown to be associated with susceptibility to involuntary job loss as well as with health, the ways in which individual SES indicators may moderate the job loss-health association remain underexplored. Using data from the Americans' Changing Lives study, we estimate the ways in which the association between job loss and depressive symptoms depends on five aspects of SES: education, income, occupational prestige, wealth, and homeownership. Our findi...

Background Previous studies show that black patients undergo carotid endarterectomy (CEA) less frequently than white patients. Diagnostic imaging is necessary to determine whether a patient is a candidate for the operation. We determined whether there were differences in the use of diagnostic carotid imaging and the frequency of CEA between elderly black and white ischemic stroke patients. Methods Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries with discharge diagnoses of ischemic stroke ( International ...

One of the fundamental guiding principles of hospice is that the patient and family is the unit of care,1 reflecting the critical importance of including surviving family in the care of people with terminal illnesses. Consistent with this principle, services for family members, both before and following the patient’s death, are recognized as core components of high quality palliative care.2 This holistic model of caring for grieving family members dates back to the historical roots of the hospic...
