  1. Survival in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis : the role of psychological factors.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    Examining the relationship between psychological status and survival in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

    Our hypothesis is that psychological distress is associated with greater mortality and shorter survival time than psychological well-being.

    Design

    Cross-sectional, longitudinal.

    The baseline evaluations used were disease severity and 10 psychometric tests.

    A psychological status score was derived from these tests.

    Survival status was monitored for 3.5 years.

    Interviewers were blinded to other interviews and data analysis.

    Setting

    Patient's residence.

    Patients

    The criteria for eligibility were diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis by a neurologist, dementia or alcoholism absent, communication in English, and any severity or length of disease.
