    Social support and its association with health-related quality of life among older patients with chronic heart failure2013In: European Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing, ISSN 1474-5151, E-ISSN 1873-1953, Vol. 12, no 1, p. 69-77Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Social support is generally known to influence health-related quality of life (HRQoL), but this association is not well explored among older patients with chronic heart failure. Aims: (1) To describe social support in older patients with chronic heart failure in relation to gender. (2) To investigate if age, gender, cohabitation, perceived financial situation, and disease severity are associated with social support. (3) To investigate if social support is associated with HRQoL after controlling for age, gender, and disease severity. Methods: Data were collected in a sample of 349 patients (>= 65 years) with chronic heart failure. Patients' HRQoL was measured with the Minnesota Living with Heart Failure Questionnaire and the Short Form-12 Health Survey Questionnaire. The Interview Schedule for Social Interaction measured social support. Data were analysed with descriptive statistics, repeated-measure ANOVA, and multiple linear regression analyses with robust standard errors. Results: Social support was generally rated high, although being a man, living alone, perceiving a problematic financial situation, and high disease severity (NYHA) were associated with lower levels of social support. Age was not associated with social support. Social support was generally associated with HRQoL, in particular the emotional dimensions. Conclusion: Taking social support into account when caring for older patients with heart failure can be of importance for improving or maintaining HRQoL.

    Psychometric properties of the Hospital Anxiety and Depression scale in cardiac arrest survivors2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: The Hospital Anxiety and Depression scale (HAD) is commonly used to assess emotional distress in different group of patients. Despite emotional distress is common in sudden cardiac arrest survivors (SCA), HAD have not to our best knowledge been psychometrically evaluated in this patient group.

    Purpose: The aim was to evaluate the psychometric properties of the HAD, with focus on factor structure, internal consistency and differential item functioning (DIF) for sex and age, in SCA survivors.

    Methods: Data from the national Swedish Register of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation were used, including HAD ratings from in-hospital cardiac arrest survivors, collected 3-12 months after resuscitation. Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was used to evaluate the hypothesized two factor structure for Anxiety and Depression, respectively. Ordinal version of Cronbach’s alpha was calculated to evaluate internal consistency reliability of the two factors. Multiple indicator multiple causes CFA models (MIMIC) were used to detect presence of DIF.

    Results: The sample consisted of 604 in-hospital cardiac arrest survivors (mean age 69.4±12.6), 384 men and 220 women. The suggested two-factor model was confirmed after item 7 was allowed to cross-load on Depression. The internal consistency was satisfactory for both Anxiety (.92) and Depression (.91). No DIF for sex and age was demonstrated.

    Conclusion: This study shows that the HAD Anxiety and Depression subscales are unidimensional. Both scales can also be used to make invariant comparisons between groups of different sex and age. Therefore, HAD can be used to assess psychological distress (anxiety and depression) in SCA survivors.

    A psychometric evaluation of the four-item version of the Control Attitudes Scale for patients with cardiac disease and their partners2015In: European Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing, ISSN 1474-5151, E-ISSN 1873-1953, Vol. 14, no 4, p. 317-325Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: The four-item Control Attitudes Scale (CAS) was developed to measure control perceived by patients with cardiac disease and their family members, but extensive psychometric evaluation has not been performed. Objective: The aim was to translate, culturally adapt and psychometrically evaluate the CAS in a Swedish sample of implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) recipients, heart failure (HF) patients and their partners. Methods: A sample (n=391) of ICD recipients, HF patients and partners were used. Descriptive statistics, item-total and inter-item correlations, exploratory factor analysis, ordinal regression modelling and Cronbach's alpha were used to validate the CAS. Results: The findings from the factor analyses revealed that the CAS is a multidimensional scale including two factors, Control and Helplessness. The internal consistency was satisfactory for all scales (=0.74-0.85), except the family version total scale (=0.62). No differential item functioning was detected which implies that the CAS can be used to make invariant comparisons between groups of different age and sex. Conclusions: The psychometric properties, together with the simple and short format of the CAS, make it to a useful tool for measuring perceived control among patients with cardiac diseases and their family members. When using the CAS, subscale scores should be preferred.
