Children having parents with cancer may respond to parental cancer in different ways in terms of bonadjustment and maladjustment. Children's maladjustment to this pervasive stressor is manifested by a wide variety of(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Detailed information on the age- and sex-specific relationships between diabetes and Alzheimer's disease (AD) is scarce. This study aims to prospectively investigate the age- and sex-specific incidence density and relative hazards of AD in relation to diabetes. METHODS A total of 615,529 diabetic patients and 614,871 age- and sex-matched(More)
OBJECTIVE We retrospectively assessed the age- and sex-specific incidence and relative risk of Parkinson disease (PD) in Taiwan's diabetic population. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Study cohort included 603,416 diabetic patients and 472,188 nondiabetic control subjects. Incidence rate and relative risk of PD (ICD-9-CM 332.0) were evaluated. RESULTS The(More)
RESULTSdThe incidence of PD was 3.59 and 2.15 per 10,000 person-years for the diabetic and control group, respectively, representing a covariate adjusted hazard ratio (HR) of 1.61 (95% CI 1.56–1.66), which was substantially reduced to 1.37 (1.32–1.41) after adjusting for medical visits. Diabetes was associated with a significantly elevated risk of PD in all(More)

METHODS One thousand, six hundred and seventy-one cases of SIDS occurring(More)
Diabetes has been reported to increase the risk of colorectal neoplasm in most but not all studies. However, the data on age- and sex-specific incidence rates and relative risks associated with diabetes are limited. We carried out this population-based cohort study to investigate the overall sex- and age-specific risks of colorectal cancer in association(More)
Human figure drawing is a common measurement that is used in practice and research. Drawing is a fun, inexpensive, and easy-to-administer method used to provide school-age children a projective means of expressing attitudes and emotions. As cognition matures, the content of drawing develops. The inclusion of emotional indicators in drawing signifies(More)
BACKGROUND Effective communication between nurses and patients with dementia promotes the quality of patient care by improving the identification of patient needs and by reducing the miscommunication-related frustration of patients and nurses. PURPOSE This study evaluates the effects of an advanced innovative Internet-based communication education (AIICE)(More)
