The study will examine the reciprocal relationships between the community, healthcare system, and personal determinants of self-management behaviors in persons with Parkinson's disease and their association with the performance of these behaviors in persons with Parkinson's Disease.
In the first part of the study, data will be extracted from electronic medical records of 2500. In the second part of the study, a sub-sample of 200 participants with Parkinson's disease will be asked to answer standardized questionnaires.
|Condition or disease|
|Parkinson Disease Neuro-Degenerative Disease Movement Disorders|
Parkinson's disease is a chronic, protracted condition. Its diverse symptoms affect the daily functioning and quality of life of patients and their families. The progressive disability is accompanied by medical complications and hospitalizations, which increase the economic burden on patients and healthcare systems. Factors that can mitigate these adverse consequences include care from a neurologist, rehabilitative treatments, and patients' use of self-management strategies. However, studies suggest that Patients with Parkinson from minority groups are less likely to be treated by a neurologist. Also, it is unclear whether Patients with Parkinson from minority groups are offered self-management strategies.
The study objectives were: To (1) to identify the reciprocal relationships among extra- and intra-personal level determinants of Self-Management Behaviors and their association with performance of these behaviors in persons with Parkinson's Disease, (2) identify the relationships between self-management behaviors (medical and lifestyle), function, and quality of life in patients with Parkinson's Disease.
Phase A of the study is a retrospective study based on extraction and analysis of data from electronic medical records, and phase B of the study is a cross-sectional study based on face-to-face meetings with a subsample of the patients whose data are included in the retrospective study.

Ethnic groups- Jews and Arabs
Data will be extracted from electronic medical records for all people with PD residing in a specific HMO district according to a record-based survey (e.g., individuals whose medical records include a diagnosis of PD). Currently, there are 2500 patients with PD in that district. In the second part of the study, a sub-sample of 100 Jewish and 100 Arab Patients with Parkinson's disease will be asked to answer standardized questionnaires.
- Visits to a neurologist [ Time Frame: 1 year ]extraction and analysis of data from Clalit's electronic medical records (EMR) of 2500 patients with Parkinson's Disease
- Use of physical therapy services [ Time Frame: 1 year ]extraction and analysis of data from Clalit's electronic medical records (EMR) of 2500 patients with Parkinson's Disease
- Patient's Activation Measure (PAM-13®, Insignia Health) [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]
Patient activation' describes the skills, confidence and knowledge a person has in managing her/his own health and health care.
It consists of 13 statements rated on a four-point Likert scale of level of agreement. The PAM-13 score is transformed into a 0-100 continuous scale according to a licensed conversion table (Insignia Health).
- International Physical Activity Questionnaire- IPAQ-SHORT [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]This questionnaire asks individuals to assess the number of days and amount of time they spent in the last 7 days in four categories: 1) vigorous activity (heavy lifting, aerobics, fast bicycling), 2) moderate activity (light lifting, moderate bicycling), 3) walking (at least 10 minutes), 4) sitting (watching TV, reading). Total physical activity is calculated as the sum of Walking + Moderate + Vigorous metabolic equivalent (MET) minutes/week scores.
- Parkinson's Disease Questionnaire-39 (PDQ-39) [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]This 39-item questionnaire is a patient-reported measure of health status and quality of life. It assesses how often people affected by PD experience difficulties across 8 dimensions of daily living, including relationships, social situations and communication. It also assesses the impact of Parkinson's on specific dimensions of functioning and wellbeing.
- Nottingham Extended Activities of Daily Living (NEADL) [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]The NEADL is a patient-reported outcome measure that consists of 22 items of everyday activities. It assesses patients' independence in activities of daily living.
