Exploring the Relationship Between Patient Activation, Treatment Satisfaction, and Decisional Conflict in Patients Approaching End-Stage Renal Disease.

Ann Behav Med 2018 Dec 9. Epub 2018 Dec 9.

Department of Internal Medicine, University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics, Iowa City, IA.

Background: Patients approaching end-stage renal disease (ESRD) experience a high level of decisional conflict because they are often not provided with sufficient support and information regarding different treatment options prior to renal failure. Decisional conflict is an important correlate of treatment satisfaction, as it is associated with disease- and treatment-related knowledge that can inform decision-making. Patient activation, the willingness and ability to independently manage one's own health and healthcare, is an individual difference factor that may have important mitigating effects on decisional conflict.

Fostering the Understanding of Positive Test Results.

Ann Behav Med 2018 Oct;52(11):909-919

Center for Experimental Research in Management and Economics, DCP, University IUAV of Venice, Trento, Italy.

Background: The majority of health-service users seem unable to properly compute the positive predictive value of medical tests. The research reported in the present study sought to investigate whether, and to what extent, probabilistic inferences about a positive test result can be improved by changing the traditional way in which probability judgments are elicited and medical information is presented.

Methods: Online survey respondents were presented with a positive test result regarding a pregnant woman, and had to estimate the chances that her unborn baby had an anomaly (standard judgment), to apportion the numbers of chances for and against this hypothesis (distributive judgment), and to indicate whether the hypothesis that the baby had an anomaly was more or less likely than its alternative (relative judgment).

Ann Behav Med 2018 Sep;52(10):902-908

Department of Psychological Medicine, University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand.

Background: Open-label placebos are a novel treatment option, in which participants take placebos with full knowledge that they do not contain active medicine. Open-label placebo treatments have been shown to result in patient-reported symptom improvements, but they have not been tested on objectively measurable physiological outcomes such as wound healing.

Purpose: The current study aimed to determine whether open-label placebos improved wound healing in punch biopsy wounds compared with no treatment. Read More

Childhood Poly-victimization Is Associated With Elevated Body Mass Index and Blunted Cortisol Stress Response in College Women.

Ann Behav Med 2018 Aug 30. Epub 2018 Aug 30.

Department of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Epidemiology, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

Background : Childhood interpersonal violence is linked to obesity and central adiposity in adulthood. Victimization experiences are likely to co-occur within individuals, but few studies have examined poly-victimization in the context of obesity and central adiposity.

Purpose: The aim of this study is to evaluate the relationship between poly-victimization and body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference (WC) and to explore whether dysregulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, as measured by the cortisol stress response, mediates the relationship.
