The Earning and Spending Habits of Male Sex Workers in Lima, Peru.

Sage Open 2018 Jan-Mar;8(1). Epub 2018 Jan 24.

University of California, Los Angeles, USA.

Over the past decade, data have identified male sex work as a potentially viable economic decision; despite this, male sex workers (MSWs) continue to be perceived as group with access to few assets and resources. Using data from a pilot skills- building intervention for MSWs in Lima, Peru, an analysis of the economic characteristics of 209 MSWs is presented. The majority reported livable incomes with median earnings of US$250 per month, 83% earning above the urban poverty line. Read More

Sage Open 2016 Jul-Sep;6(3). Epub 2016 Aug 22.

RAND, Santa Monica, CA, USA.

The informed-consent process seeks to provide complete information to participants about a research project and to protect personal information they may disclose. In this article, we present an informed-consent process that we piloted and improved to obtain consent from older adults in Yucatan, Mexico. Respondents had limited fluency in Spanish, spoke the local Mayan language, and had some physical limitations due to their age. Read More

Contextualizing Women's Agency in Marital Negotiations: Muslim and Hindu Women in Karnataka, India.

Sage Open 2016 Jul 1;6(3):2158244016667450. Epub 2016 Sep 1.

Ambedkar University Delhi, India.

We use 36 in-depth interviews, with 18 Muslim and 18 Hindu women in Karnataka, India, to explore the relationships between women's educational attainments and women's exercise of agency in spousal selection and the timing of marriage. We have outlined three kinds of agency, namely, convinced, resistance, and complicit, and the contexts in which they were deployed by our participants during their marriage negotiations. Our examination of the role of education across this spectrum of agential capacities during marriage negotiations suggests that the linkages between education and agency are not straightforward.

Sage Open 2016 Jan-Mar;6(1). Epub 2016 Jan 5.

University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Little Rock, AR, USA.

More than 80 million Americans have hypertension (HTN), and African Americans (AAs) are disproportionately affected. AAs also have lower rates of adherence to HTN treatment. It is important to understand AAs' perceptions of adherence to develop effective interventions. Read More

Consistency between beliefs and behavior regarding use of substances in recovery.

Sage Open 2015 Jan-Mar;5(1)

Senior Research Associate, Alcohol Research Group at the Public Health Institute, 6475 Christie Avenue, Emeryville CA 94608-1010; and Lecturer, California State University, East Bay.

This paper addresses the assumption that pathways to recovery from substance abuse and dependence, and the language used to define one's relationship to substances, translate to actual beliefs and behaviors in terms of substance use. We draw on social representation theory, and use data from a large web-based study (n=9,341) whose goal was to understand how individuals in recovery define what recovery means to them. We often hear people say that they are "in recovery," and present findings now provide empirical evidence of the prevalent meanings of this ubiquitous expression. Read More

A Review of Ethnicity, Culture, and Acculturation Among Asian Caregivers of Older Adults (2000-2012).

Sage Open 2015 Feb;5(1)

University of Washington, Seattle, Washington, USA.

This review identified domains of care experiences among studies of Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese caregivers in the United States and Canada between 2000 and 2012. Using a narrative approach, 46 peer-reviewed journal articles were found through electronic databases and references. Considering caregivers' assimilation to host countries, attention was given to their culture, socioeconomic resources, immigrant status, filial responsibility, generation, and acculturation.

A Qualitative Analysis of the Use of Financial Services and Saving Behavior Among Older African Americans and Latinos in the Los Angeles Area.

Sage Open 2015 Jan-Mar;5(1)

University of California, Los Angeles, USA.

For this study, we conducted seven focus groups in the Los Angeles area with a total of 70 participants (42 Latinos and 28 African Americans) recruited from three senior centers and a church. There was a wide variety of responses in relation to the usage of financial services among participants. We found that although some participants seem to participate more in the formal financial sector and show a higher level of sophistication when managing their finances, other participants' use of formal financial institutions is minimal.

Retaining Participants in Outpatient and Community-Based Health Studies: Researchers and Participants in Their Own Words.

Sage Open 2014;4(4):1-11

University of California, San Francisco, USA.

Loss to follow-up can introduce bias into research, making it difficult to develop inclusive evidence-based health policies and practice guidelines. We aimed to deepen understanding of reasons why participants leave or remain in longitudinal health studies. We interviewed 59 researchers and current and former research participants in six focus groups ( = 55) or interviews ( = 4) at three study centers in a large academic research institution. Read More

Daily Self-Weighing to Control Body Weight in Adults: A Critical Review of the Literature.

Sage Open 2014 Oct-Dec;4(4):1-16. Epub 2014 Dec 14.

Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA.

The objective of this study is to review the history of daily self-weighing for weight control, discuss the possibility that self-weighing may cause adverse psychological symptoms, and propose mechanisms that explain how self-weighing facilitates weight control. A systematic forward (citation) tracking approach has been employed in this study. In the early literature, experimental tests did not demonstrate a benefit of adding daily self-weighing to traditional behavioral modification for weight loss. Read More

Integration of Administrative Data and Chart Review for Reporting Health Care Utilization Among Children With Sickle Cell Disease.

Sage Open 2013 ;3(1):2158244013482470

Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX, USA.

Health care utilization of children with sickle cell disease (SCD) has been well documented due to an increase in the use of administrative data sets. While use of such data sources is relatively efficient and low cost, questions remain as to whether they provide sufficient information to fully characterize health care use. The aim of this study was to determine whether administrative data have the capacity to fully assess health care utilization among children with SCD. Read More
