  1. Fulltext. Adaptive responses among Dutch elderly : The impact of eight chronic medical conditions on health-related quality of life.

    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    This study analyzed the impact of eight common chronic medical conditions on functional, social, and affective domains of health-related quality of life among community-based Dutch elderly (n=5279).

    Methods

    Health-related quality of life was measured with six domains of the MOS Short-Form General Health Survey.

    The impact of the selected chronic conditions on health-related quality of life was analyzed by means of Student's t tests, analyses of variance, and multiple regression analyses.

    Results

    Compared with other domains of health-related quality of life, mental health was the least affected by chronic medical conditions.

    Back problems and rheumatoid arthritis/other : joint complaints accounted for relatively high proportions of the variance in health-related quality of life (from 35.5% to 68.3%), except for health perceptions (22.6%), indicating that health-related quality of life is most affected by these two conditions.

    Conclusions

    Subjective well-being is by far the domain least affected by chronic medical conditions, while physical functioning and health perceptions are most affected.

    Back problems and rheumatoid arthritis/other joint complaints affect health-related quality of life strongly.
