Meta-analysis of risk factors for posttraumatic stress disorder in trauma-exposed adults.
TLDR
The effect size of all the risk factors was modest, but factors operating during or after the trauma, such as trauma severity, lack of social support, and additional life stress, had somewhat stronger effects than pretrauma factors.
Predicting depressive symptoms with a new measure of shame: The Experience of Shame Scale.
TLDR
It was concluded that the reason for the differential performance of the two scales was that the ESS, like the shame interview, assesses specific areas of shame related to self and performance, whereas the TOSCA assesses general shame and may therefore be more prone to mood-state effects.
Affect, Emotional Disorder, and Future-directed Thinking
Affect, it has been argued, can be divided into two higher order dimensions of positive affect (PA) and negative affect (NA) (Watson, L.A. Clark, & Tellegen, 1988). This framework has been used to
The Diabetes Treatment Satisfaction Questionnaire change version (DTSQc) evaluated in insulin glargine trials shows greater responsiveness to improvements than the original DTSQ
TLDR
The DTSQc, used in conjunction with the D TSQs, overcomes the problem of ceiling effects encountered when only the status measure is used and provides a means for new treatments to show greater value than is possible with theDTSQs alone.
Random Generation of Numbers: A Search for Underlying Processes
To explicate the mechanisms which support attempts at random number production, two experiments explore the role of memory systems in random sequencing. In the first, subjects produced written random
The impact of theory of constraints (TOC) in an NHS trust
TLDR
An overall ARIMA analysis indicated that TOC had an impact in both Eyes and ENT, however, there was a lack of significant improvements in neurosurgery that was associated with the size of the system, complexity of treating neurological disorde...
A structural equation modelling approach to the complex path from postural stability to morale in elderly people with fear of falling
TLDR
Morale alone is not an adequate outcome of rehabilitation, and increased balance confidence and reduced fear of falling need to be addressed in their own right and assessed independently of morale in elderly rehabilitation.
The Standardized Three-metre Walking Test for elderly people (WALK3m): repeatability and real change
TLDR
WALK3m, whether measured by time or by step counts has excellent repeatability, and knowing the minimal detectable change can be of great value to clinicians who can calculate whether their patient is really making progress.
