  • Incidence of comorbidities in women with breast cancer treated with tamoxifen or an aromatase inhibitor: an Australian population-based cohort study

    Ng, Huah Shin; Koczwara, Bogda; Roder, David; Niyonsenga, Theo; Vitry, Agnes (2018)
    Background: The development of comorbidities has become increasingly relevant with longer-term cancer survival. Objective: To assess the pattern of comorbidities among Australian women with breast cancer treated with tamoxifen or an aromatase inhibitor. Design: Retrospective cohort study using Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) data (10% sample) from January 2003 to December 2014. Dispensing claims data were used to identify comorbidities and classified with the Rx-Risk-V model. The breast ...

    Patients with multimorbidity and their treatment burden in different life domains: a qualitative study in primary care in the Netherlands and Belgium

    van Merode, Tiny; van de Ven, Karin; van den Akker, Marjan (2018)
    Background: Physicians and other healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients with multimorbidity should consider the problems these patients experience in managing their own conditions. However, treatment burden from the patient’s perspective has been poorly explored, even though this might hamper treatment adherence. Objective: The present study examined the experiences of patients with multimorbidity in primary care in the Netherlands and Belgium using semi-structured intervie...

    A method of decision analysis quantifying the effects of age and comorbidities on the probability of deriving significant benefit from medical treatments

    Fitzgerald, Stephen P.; Bean, Nigel G.; Ruberu, Ravi P. (2017)
    Background: The external validity, or generalizability, of trials and guidelines has been considered poor in the context of multiple morbidity. How multiple morbidity might affect the magnitude of benefit of a given treatment, and thereby external validity, has had little study. Objective: To provide a method of decision analysis to quantify the effects of age and comorbidity on the probability of deriving a given magnitude of treatment benefit. Design: We developed a method to calculate prob...

    Patients with multimorbidity and their experiences with the healthcare process: a scoping review

    van der Aa, Maartje J.; van den Broeke, Jennifer R.; Stronks, Karien; Plochg, Thomas (2017)
    Background: The number of patients with multimorbidity (two or more conditions) is increasing. Observational research has shown that having multiple health problems is associated with poorer outcomes in terms of health, quality of care, and costs. Thus, it is imperative to understand how patients with multimorbidity experience their healthcare process. Insight into patient experiences can be used to tailor healthcare provision specifically to the needs of patients with multimorbidity. Objecti...

    A qualitative interpretation of challenges associated with helping patients with multiple chronic diseases identify their goals

    Boeckxstaens, Pauline; Willems, Sara; Lanssens, Mieke; Decuypere, Charlotte; Brusselle, Guy; Kuehlein, Thomas; De Maeseneer, Jan; De Sutter, An (2016)
    Background: Patients with multiple chronic diseases are usually treated according to disease-specific guidelines, with outcome measurements focusing mostly on biomedical indicators (e.g. blood sugar levels or lung function). However, for multimorbidity, a goal-oriented approach focusing on the goals defined by the individual patient, may be more suitable. Despite the clear theoretical and conceptual advantages of including patient-defined goals in clinical decision-making for multimorbidity, ...
