Health status assessment in a hypertension section of an internal medicine clinic.
The authors obtained health status instrument information with the SF-36 and COOP charts distributed in random order (along with selected items from the Hypertension Technology of Patient Experience [TyPE] tool) to patients attending the hypertension section of an internal medicine clinic.
The goal was to examine and compare potential associations of clinical, demographic, and/or treatment variables with SF-36/COOP health status scale variables in a nonuniversity urban clinic.
One hundred fifty-eight pairs of health status instruments were returned (62% response rate).
One hundred (64%) had a diagnosis of hypertension, 81 (51%) were males, 94 (60%) were older than 65 years, and 122 (78%) were white.
