In September 1961, a group of doctors and nurses met at Abington House (formerly the Benjamin Rose Hospital) in Cleveland to plan a controlled study of the effects of public health nursing on the welfare of patients discharged from a chronic disease rehabilitation hospital. Three currents of interest converged at that meeting, each of which contrib...
Article
For ideal classification of chronic disease in large populations, identification of the presence or absence of every chronic disease in every person would be desirable, as would knowledge of specific causes and pathogenesis, means to define cause, measure severity, and identify important milestones. The authors have approached the problems by analy...

... Additional information for the assessment of long-term functional outcome after operative stabilisation was obtained during regular follow-up in an outpatient setting or by telephone interview. Standardised questionnaires (Quick Disabilities of Arm, Shoulder and Hand (QuickDASH) score, Subjective Shoulder Value (SSV), Numeric Rating Scale (NRS), Activities of Daily Living (ADL), Hulsmans implant removal score) have been used [14][15][16][17][18][19]. ...
... Our results showed that fear of falling had a signi cant impact on limited self-care activities, but previous falls did not. Self-care activities include eating, bathing, toileting, and dressing, which are considered to be ADLs [37]. Hoang al. pointed out that there is a strong negative correlation between the score of ADLs and fear of falling [38]. ...
... Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) was applied on each epoch. The obtained spectra values were processed to compute a mean power spectrum for each channel and divided automatically into four different frequency bands, as follows: delta (3-4 Hz), theta (4.5-5.5 Hz), fast theta or pre-alpha (6-7.5 Hz), and alpha (8)(9)(10)(11)(12). EEG traces were quantified by the following mathematical descriptors: DF, which is the frequency where the spectral power value was greatest for each epoch, and DFV, expressing the variability of DF across the 90 analyzed epochs [5,6]. ...
... While a large number of studies have examined the effect of interventions on ADL among older adults, a considerably smaller number of these studies have been found to be effective, that is, have improved ADL, prevented further ADL decline, or slowed the rate of decline. Home visiting nurses (HVNs) have participated in 13 interventions with successful impacts on ADL [8][9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20]. These 13 interventions are extremely heterogeneous. ...
... In this research, the FSQ-SF is considered the primary outcome measure. Basic Activity of Daily Living (BADL) [38]: it is a rating scale regarding some basic activities related to the daily environment (bathing; dressing; toilet; continence; getting around; feeding). Instrumental Activity of Daily Living (IADL) [39] used in its short version [40]: it is a questionnaire that investigates the ability of older adults to perform complex and instrumental activities (using the telephone; making purchases; using means of transport; cooking; doing housework; doing laundry; handling money; taking drugs). ...
... The index of independence in activities of daily living (ADL) [11] was calculated for 56 residents and regrouped into three categories: twenty of them were classified into group 1 of dependence (low ADL/score 0-1), eight into group 2 (intermediate ADL/score 2-4), and twenty-eight into group 3 of independence (high ADL/score 5-6). ...
... Most of the upper limb recovery typically occurs within the first six months [2][3][4][5][6]. While further recovery beyond the subacute phase has been reported [4,[7][8][9], Leonard et al. actually showed functional decline between 3 and 5 years after discharge [10]. It has been suggested that lesser improvements or worsening after 6 months following stroke could be due to insufficient therapy [4]. ...
... Sociodemographic data and carerelated data were obtained at baseline, including living situation, and number of prescriptions. Physical status was assessed by 'The Katz Index of Independence in Activities of Daily Living' (Katz-ADL [16]: ranging from 0-6, with a score of 0 indicating independence). The Charlson comorbidity index (CCI) was used to classify chronic comorbidity [17]. ...
... This scale has been developed to evaluate ADS by Katz et al. [13] in 1963. The Turkish translation and validity and reliability study of this scale have been performed by Pehlivanoğlu et al. [14]. ...
... A classification of disease type and severity has eluded medical professionals for decades (Katz et al., 1969). Katz et al. (1969) identified three categories of chronic diseases based on variations in the disease patterns: most severe, moderately severe, and least severe. ...
