Family Quality of Life Among Families with a Member Diagnosed with CLD – What to Expect?

Abstract

Background and objectives. Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is a very important outcome in patients with chronic liver disease. Thus, the present study attempts to assess the family quality of life of these patients, since it is well known that families have always represented the primary environment of most people.

Matherial and methods. A sample of 30 participants with a family member who had CLD were recruited to be interviewed through the Romanian adaptation of the Family Quality of Life Survey – general version 2006 (FQOLS-2006), an evaluation tool developed in Canada with the purpose of studying families’ quality of life among. Primary caregivers completed the FQOL Survey. The data was analysed to describe population characteristics and to explore the relationship between the main domains and dimensions of QoL and the patients and caregivers characteristics.

Results. The findings showed highest domain scores for Support from services and Family relationships and lowest for Support from others. Dimension scores were highest for Importance and lowest for Stability. Overall FQOL approximated average (78.5±13.4). Younger patients scored lower rates of FQOL domains. Alcohol-related liver disease led to lower rates of all the domains, except from Support from others and Leisure and Recreation activities. Patients with liver cirrhosis or liver cancer negatively influence their caregiver’s success in career. Also, families of liver cirrhosis patients reported the lowest level of satisfaction among all respondents.

Conclusions. The results of this study suggest that there are some significant areas of family life highly influenced by a chronic liver disease diagnosis in one of their members.

The role of professionalism in clinical practice, medical education, biomedical research and health care administration

which doctors are no longer trusted serves as a sharp reminder of this. Well publicized examples point to poor medical outcomes, patient dissatisfaction, and resentment, which can spiral out of control and wasteful medical care delivery. Doctors have a solemn duty and responsibility therefore to behave in a manner that promotes patient and societal trust. This applies not only in clinical practice, but also in the integrity of medical research and how medical students and residents are optimally prepared for medical careers. Essential levels of trust can be achieved

The Symbiotic Relationship between Authors, Medical Journals, Editors and the Peer Review System

There is a complex relationship between potential authors, especially those with limited experience in submitting manuscripts, medical journals, editors and the reviewers who participate in the peer review system. There is growing pressure on young graduates undertaking PhD and Master programs to publish papers, as the regulations for the completion of these degrees from many universities require papers to be published before the awarding of these degrees. The pressure to publish is nonetheless high, as colleagues proceed through their career pathway, with
