Objective To assess the burden of diseases and quality of life (QOL) of patients for a large variety of diseases within general practice. Design In a representative nationwide cross-sectional study, a total of 825 general practitioners (GPs) were randomly selected from across France. Independent investigators recruited 8559 patients attending the GPs' practices. Data on QOL (12-Item Short Form questionnaire) and other individual characteristics were documented by the independent investigators… Expand
Mental Health Disorders in General Practice in France: A Cross-Sectional Survey
TLDR
Mental health disorders are among the most common reasons for consultations in general practice and efforts are needed to increase mental health evaluation in a bio-psycho-social approach. Expand
Health Related Quality of Life in Patients with Chronic Diseases
TLDR
Patients with chronic diseases in Bahrain had an overall good quality of life, and patients with sickle cell disease and psychiatric diseases had the lowest mean scores in all the domains. Expand
Variations in patient-reported physical health between cardiac and musculoskeletal diseases: systematic review and meta-analysis of population-based studies
TLDR
The hypothesis that specific diseases which form cardiovascular and musculoskeletal disease spectra are associated with gradients of physical impairments are tested, providing the benchmark norms for the differences in physical health within and between diseaseSpectra is tested. Expand
Characteristics of patients consulting their regular primary care physician according to their prescribing preferences for homeopathy and complementary medicine.
TLDR
Patients seeking care with a homeopathic GP did not differ greatly in their socio-demographic characteristics but more so by their healthier lifestyle and positive attitude toward CAM, and the potential economic benefits of homeopathic management in primary care were assessed. Expand
Differences in health-related quality of life among subjects with frequent bilateral or unilateral knee pain: data from the Osteoarthritis Initiative study.
TLDR
Subjects with frequent BKP had lower health-relatedQoL than those with frequent unilateral or no knee pain, as reflected in lower Knee injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score QoL subscale and SF-12 physical component summary and MCS scores. Expand
Physician practicing preferences for conventional or homeopathic medicines in elderly subjects with musculoskeletal disorders in the EPI3-MSD cohort
TLDR
NSAID use was significantly higher in elderly MSD patients consulting a conventional practice general practitioner and Consulting a homeopathic physician for MSD management does not appear to represent a loss of therapeutic opportunity, and decreases the use of NSAIDs. Expand
Homeopathic medical practice for anxiety and depression in primary care: the EPI3 cohort study
TLDR
Patients with ADD, who chose to consult GPs prescribing homeopathy reported less use of psychotropic drugs, and were marginally more likely to experience clinical improvement, than patients managed with conventional care. Expand
Management of Upper Respiratory Tract Infections by Different Medical Practices, Including Homeopathy, and Consumption of Antibiotics in Primary Care: The EPI3 Cohort Study in France 2007–2008
TLDR
Patients who chose to consult GPs certified in homeopathy used less antibiotics and antipyretic/anti-inflammatory drugs for URTI than those seen by GPs prescribing conventional medications. Expand

TLDR
Management of ADD patients aged ≥ 65 years by GP-Ho appears to have a real public health interest in terms of effectiveness and lower psychotropic drug use. Expand

Health-related quality of life among general practice patients with differing chronic diseases in Germany: Cross sectional survey
TLDR
The HRQoL for general practice patients in Germany seemed to be more strongly affected by diseases like depression, back pain, OA of the knee, and cancer than by hypertension and diabetes. Expand
Morbidity severity classifying routine consultations from English and Dutch general practice indicated physical health status.
TLDR
Four scales of morbidity severity have been validated in English and Dutch settings, and they offer the potential to use simple routine consultation data as an indicator of physical health status in populations from general practice. Expand
Use of a cross-sectional survey to estimate outcome of health care: the example of anxiety and depression.
TLDR
The linkage between the survey and the clinical records suggested that the health outcome of previously identified anxious and depressed patients was poor, with an estimated two-thirds who will not have fully recovered within an average of 9 months. Expand
Quality of life of Australian chronically-ill adults: patient and practice characteristics matter
TLDR
The strong association between patient characteristics such as socio-economic status, age, and ethnicity and SF-12 physical and mental component summary scores underlines the importance of considering these factors in the management of chronically-ill patients in general practice. Expand
The SF36 health survey questionnaire: an outcome measure suitable for routine use within the NHS?
TLDR
The SF36 seems acceptable to patients, internally consistent, and a valid measure of the health status of a wide range of patients, and its sensitivity to changes in health status over time must also be tested. Expand
Variations in population health status: results from a United Kingdom national questionnaire survey
TLDR
The EQ-5D questionnaire is a practical way of measuring the health of a population and of detecting differences in subgroups of the population and it highlights variations in states of health which are consistent with previously published results. Expand
The SF-12 as a population health measure: an exploratory examination of potential for application.
TLDR
Physical and mental health functioning summary scores as measured by the SF-12 are useful in describing overall community health status when compared with traditional measures such as total deaths, age-adjusted mortality, or physician to population ratio. Expand
Functional status, health problems, age and comorbidity in primary care patients
TLDR
Higher age was a predictor of poorer functional status, but there was little evidence for an independent effect of co-morbidity on functional status. Expand
Comorbidity of chronic diseases: effects of disease pairs on physical and mental functioning.
TLDR
Synergistic effects of combinations of diabetes, cardiovascular disease and/or chronic respiratory disease were found, indicating that patients suffering from these disease combinations run a higher risk of physical disability than could be expected from their separate effects. Expand
Multimorbidity: prevalence, effect on quality of life and daily functioning, and variation of this effect when one condition is a rheumatic disease.
TLDR
Multimorbidity is frequent in the general population and can considerably impair daily functioning and HRQoL and having a rheumatic disease worsens these outcomes. Expand
