  1. Factors determining the level of anxiety state in geriatric primary care patients in a community dwelling.

    Article - En anglais

    The authors examined the association between anxiety state and various sociodemographic factors, as well as measures of general health, mood, and stress in a community-dwelling, geriatric population.

    A survey questionnaire designed for the study was completed by 123 randomly selected subjects.

    Univariable linear regression analysis showed anxiety state to have an inverse association with age (bêta=-0.29, P= 0.0001) and general health measures (P=0.0001), and to have a direct relationship with depression (bêta=0.78, P=0.0001), life stress events (bêta=0.98, P=0.01), and medical comorbidity (bêta=1.04, P=0.01).
