Prognostic Factors of Long Term Disability Due to Mental Disorders: A Systematic Review

A systematic review of scientific evidence about prognostic factors for mental health related long term disability, RTW and symptom recovery finds strong evidence that older age (>50 years) is associated with continuing disability and longer time to RTW.

The relative, odds for developing a disability were greater for either type of psychiatric disorder or high distress than for those with any prior physical illness or those with a prior disability day.

Psychopathology and the initiation of disability payments.

Differences in social class influenced the initiation of disability payments, however, having a mental or addictive disorder was a more significant predictor, strongly increasing the risk of receiving payments.

Further Development of Flexible Parametric Models for Survival Analysis

A new command is introduced, stpm2, that extends the methodology of Royston and Parmar's flexible parametric survival models and enables simple quantification of differences between any two covariate patterns through calculation of time-dependent hazard ratios, hazard differences, and survival differences.

A Flexible Alternative to the Cox Proportional Hazards Model for Assessing the Prognostic Accuracy of Hospice Patient Survival

Internal validation demonstrated that overall the Royston-Parmar family of survival functions provided a better fit than the Cox proportional hazards model and researchers involved in prognosticating patient survival are encouraged to consider the RoySTON-Parar model as an alternative to Cox.

Association of Psychotherapy with Disability Benefit Claim Closure among Patients Disabled Due to Depression

It is found, paradoxically, that receipt of psychotherapy was independently associated with longer time to STD claim closure and faster LTD claim closure in patients with depression.

Estimating treatment effects for individual patients based on the results of randomised clinical trials

Objectives To predict treatment effects for individual patients based on data from randomised trials, taking rosuvastatin treatment in the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease as an example,

Common prognostic factors of work disability among employees with a chronic somatic disease: a systematic review of cohort studies.

As many prognostic factors for work disability are similar for employees with various chronic diseases, it is possible to detect high risk groups and support the development and implementation of a general disability management intervention for employees suffering from a chronic disease to overcome health-related limitations at work.
