Quality of preventive clinical services among caregivers in the health and retirement study

Archived Abstract of Former PSC Researcher

Kim, Cheong-Seok, M.U. Kabeto, R.B. Wallace, and Kenneth M. Langa. 2004. "Quality of preventive clinical services among caregivers in the health and retirement study." Journal of General Internal Medicine, 19(8): 875-878.

We examined the association between caregiving for a spouse and preventive clinical services (self-reported influenza vaccination, cholesterol screening, mammography, Pap smear, and prostate cancer screening over 2 years and monthly self-breast exam) for the caregiver in a cross-sectional analysis of the Health and Retirement Study, a nationally representative sample of U.S. adults aged greater than or equal to50 years (N= 11,394). Spouses engaged in 0, 1-14, or greater than or equal to14 hours per week of caregiving. Each service was examined in logistic regression models adjusting for caregiver characteristics. After adjustment for covariates, there were no significant associations between spousal caregiving and likelihood of caregiver receipt of preventive services.
