Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International

Title:Associate Professor
Objective:The purpose of this study is to develop a profile of health concerns, symptoms and treatments, and to examine the relationships of symptoms to functional and role status and use of health care services for patients diagnosed with MVPS. Research questions are: (1) What are the health concerns, symptoms, and treatments reported by patients with MVPS? (2) Are symptoms related to age, time since diagnosis, symptoms, anxiety, social support, diet (magnesium, sodium, water and caffeine), and treatment (beta and calcium channel blockers; anxiolytics; meditation/relaxation therapy; fluid?; exercise; activity limitation)? (3)What is the relationship of symptoms to patients’ health concerns, functional and role status, and use of health care services? Design:Descriptive cross-sectional design. Population, Sample, Setting, Years: Subjects diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse syndrome. Concept or Variables Studied:MVPS, Health Concerns, Use of Health Care Services,Social Support, Physiological Factors Methods: Questionnaire packets will be mailed to all of the men and women (N = 3022) on The Mitral Valve Prolapse Program of Cincinnati’s mailing list diagnosed with MVPS. The self-complete questionnaires will include measures of MVPS symptoms (MVPS symptom checklist); the outcome variables of health concerns (MUIS), functional and role status (SF-36), and healthcare service use (Life History Calendar); and the independent variables of age, time since diagnosis, anxiety (STAI), social support (MOS Social Support), treatment, and diet (Food Frequency Questionnaire). Descriptive statistics and multiple regression analysis will be used to address the study’s research questions Findings: Data will be ready for analysis 2/2003 Conclusions Implications:The proposed study is the next step in developing data on symptoms of MVPS and their effect on health and functioning. These data are necessary in developing and modifying existing education and self management interventions aimed at reducing anxiety and improving the health and well being of the millions of Americans newly diagnosed with this syndrome annually.
