  • Age Differences in Health Literacy: Do Younger Korean Adults Have a Higher
           Level of Health Literacy than Older Korean Adults'
    • Authors: Lee E; Lee H, Chung S.
      Pages: 133 - 142
      Abstract: AbstractThe purpose of this study was to investigate the level of health literacy of adults living in South Korea and identify factors associated with health literacy in different age groups. Using a quota sampling method, authors recruited 1,000 Korean adults age 20 years and older. Health literacy was measured by using three items selected from a 16-question self-report health literacy measure. In accordance with Andersen's behavioral model, predisposing, enabling, and need factors were included in the multiple regression model. Age differences were found in health literacy levels; specifically, lower health literacy was associated with older age. For the 20 through 44-year age group, health literacy was positively associated with having private health insurance and higher self-rated health status. For the 45 through 64 and the 65 and over age groups, education was positively associated with health literacy. For the oldest age group, gender also had a positive association with health literacy. Lower levels of depression were significantly linked to a higher level of health literacy across all ages. This study illustrates ways to increase health literacy among different age groups and prioritizes target intervention groups in an effort to reduce health disparities.

  • Evidence and Feasibility of Implementing an Integrated Wellness Program in
           Northeast Georgia
    • Authors: Flanigan A; Salm Ward T.
      Pages: 143 - 150
      Abstract: Evidence for the connection between physical and mental health is growing, as is interest in providing a holistic, mind–body approach to improving mental health and wellness. A needs assessment in northeast Georgia identified several regional health priorities, including mental health and substance abuse, access to care, and cardiovascular health. The study's purpose is threefold: to (1) review evidence for integrated mind–body wellness services, (2) explore the feasibility of implementing wellness services in a small mental health agency serving northeast Georgia, and (3) conduct a brief survey assessing interest in a wellness program. The literature search identified articles within the past 10 years with these key words: “yoga,” “mental health,” “wellness program,” “complementary alternative medicine,” “tai chi,” “mindfulness,” “meditation,” and “nutrition.” The survey was distributed to the agency's affiliates. The literature review identified strong evidence for an integrated mind–body wellness program that includes yoga, tai chi, mindfulness meditation, and nutrition education. Among 73 survey respondents, 86 percent indicated interest in wellness services, and 85 percent agreed that wellness services are important to mental health and well-being.
      Authors suggest a model to incorporate a holistic wellness program to complement mental health services and help facilitate physical and mental health.

  • Assessing Grief of Family Caregivers of People with Dementia: Validation
           of the Chinese Version of the Marwit–Meuser Caregiver Grief Inventory
    • Authors: Chan W; Wong B, Kwok T, et al.
      Pages: 151 - 158
      Abstract: Grief in dementia caregiving is underexplored in research studies in the Chinese context, yet social workers often work with caregivers of people with dementia (PWD) and who experience grief. Having a valid assessment tool can help social workers better identify the grief of caregivers and facilitate caregivers’ articulation of grief. This article describes a study aimed to validate the Marwit–Meuser Caregiver Grief Inventory–Short Form (C-MM-CGI-SF) among Hong Kong Chinese caregivers of PWD. One hundred and twenty caregivers participated in this study. They were recruited from day care centers and a memory clinic. The short version of MM-CGI was translated into Chinese, and participants were asked to complete a questionnaire that included this scale and other scales validating it. Reliability and validity were examined. C-MM-CGI-SF was found to be a reliable and valid measure in the Hong Kong context. Its construct validity was demonstrated by the positive correlations with caregiving strain and depression, and negative correlations with presence of meaning and life satisfaction. The discriminant validity was supported by showing that spousal caregivers’ grief level was significantly higher than that of nonspousal caregivers.
      Authors recommend social workers using the C-MM-CGI-SF to assess the grief of Chinese caregivers caring for people suffering from dementia.

  • A Comparison of Compliance and Noncompliance in Breast Cancer Screening
           among African American Women
    • Authors: Davis C; Cadet TJ, Moore M, et al.
      Pages: 159 - 166
      Abstract: AbstractAfrican American women are more likely to be diagnosed with late stage breast cancer, due in part to low participation in screening procedures. The purpose of this study was to explore the differences among African American women who were compliant and noncompliant with standard mammography screening recommendations. The study participants were African American women (N = 599) over the age of 40 with no history of cancer, who were recruited to attend a local community health event. Findings revealed that 78 percent of the women reported having had a mammogram within the past year, whereas 22 percent had not. The most commonly reported reasons given by those who did not have a mammogram in the past year were that they simply did not think to do so, or that they were not told to do so by their doctor. Women who reported that they did not have a mammogram last year were significantly less likely to have health insurance, to have had a clinical breast exam at their last checkup, to have had their breasts examined by their doctor at least once per year, or to have previously had a mammogram. There were no group differences in the number of visits to a doctor during the past 12 months. The article concludes with a discussion of the implications for health care professionals and suggestions for future research.

  • Young People's Experiences of Epilepsy: A Scoping Review of Qualitative
           Studies
    • Authors: Chew J; Carpenter J, Haase AM.
      Pages: 167 - 176
      Abstract: Research on childhood epilepsy has predominantly used quantitative methodologies to examine the impact of epilepsy on young people and their families. These studies generally give a negative picture of the condition, which is at odds with a strengths-based social work perspective, and provide little understanding of young people's experiences of living with epilepsy. A systematic review of qualitative studies that explored young people's perspectives was conducted. Inclusion criteria were as follows: young people ages 13 to 18 years diagnosed with epilepsy, qualitative data collection methods, studies published in English-language peer-reviewed journals, and gray literature. Of 501 abstracts identified, 52 full-length texts were reviewed, with 17 studies being included for final analysis. The emergent themes were seizures and medications; relationships; issues and concerns involving their families, peers, and schools; and young people's reactions to epilepsy. It is essential to understand issues presented by young people for improving practice and developing services, as these issues highlight areas for potential social work interventions. It is also essential to adopt a strengths perspective when considering these findings and implications for hospital social work, as young people's experiences were not always negative.
