OBJECTIVES: Despite the burden of disease caused by influenza and pneumococcus, immunization rates are moderate and have not reached national goals set for 2010. This study's objective was to identify patient knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs that serve as facilitators of and barriers to influenza and pneumococcal vaccination.
DESIGN: A survey conducted in 2000 by computer-assisted telephone interviewing.
SETTING: To encounter a broad spectrum of patients and healthcare systems, we ...

What affects influenza vaccination rates among older patients? An analysis from inner-city, suburban, rural, and veterans affairs practices
[ PUBLICATION ]
BACKGROUND: Despite strong evidence of the effectiveness of influenza vaccination, immunization rates have reached a plateau that is below the 2010 national goals. Our objective was to identify facilitators of, and barriers to, vaccination in diverse groups of older patients.
METHODS: A survey was conducted in 2000 by computer-assisted telephone interviewing of patients from inner-city health centers, Veterans Affairs (VA) outpatient clinics, rural practices, and suburban practices. The ...

Tailored interventions to increase influenza vaccination in neighborhood health centers serving the disadvantaged.
[ PUBLICATION ]
OBJECTIVES: We designed and evaluated interventions to increase adult immunizations within inner-city health centers.
METHODS: Interventions included reminders, standing orders, and walk-in "flu shot clinics." Patients were surveyed and records evaluated.
RESULTS: Records from 1 center showed that immunization rates increased from 24% to 30% (P <.001) for patients aged 50 to 64 years and from 45% to 53% for patients aged 65 years and older (P <.001). Self-reported vaccination rates did ...

BACKGROUND : Home visits have been shown to improve quality of care, save money, and improve outcomes. Primary care physicians are in an ideal position to provide these visits; of note, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education no longer requires home visits as a component of family medicine residency training.
OBJECTIVE : To investigate changes in home visit numbers and expectations, attitudes, and approaches to training among family medicine residency program ...

[ PUBLICATION ]
Although influenza and pneumonia are the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, immunization rates are modest and racial disparity occurs. To address this issue, the authors surveyed 220 of 261 contacted persons aged ≥ 66 years old who were randomly selected from inner city neighborhood health centers in Pittsburgh. The authors conducted computer assisted telephone interviewing using a standard questionnaire based on the theory of reasoned action. Influenza vaccination rates ...

Despite the burden of disease caused by pneumococcus, adult immunization rates are modest. To understand barriers in diverse settings, we surveyed patients age > or =66 years at: (1) inner-city health centers; (2) Veterans Affairs (VA) outpatient clinics; (3) rural practices; and (4) suburban practices. Among the 1007 respondents, self-reported pneumococcal vaccination rates were: 85% VA; 62% rural; 66% suburban; and 57% inner-city with substantial variability among practices. Half of ...

BACKGROUND: Influenza vaccination rates among adults, especially in minority populations, remain below national goals of 90%. This study investigated in diverse settings, facilitators of and barriers to patient influenza vaccination from the physician's perspective.
METHODS: Two-stage, stratified, random-cluster sampling was employed to select 71 clinicians from inner-city, rural, suburban, and Veterans Affairs (VA) practices, and a random sample of 925 of their patients aged >/=65 ...

Racial differences in beliefs about genetic screening among patients at inner-city neighborhood health centers.
[ PUBLICATION ]
BACKGROUND: Genetic testing has the potential to identify persons at high risk for disease. Given the history of racial disparities in screening, early detection and accessing treatment, understanding racial differences in beliefs about genetics is essential to preventing disparities in some conditions.
METHODS: In 2004, a sample of older adult patients from four inner-city health centers was surveyed to assess beliefs about genetic determinants of disease, genetic testing and religion. ...

Despite the Healthy People 2010 goal of a pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPV) vaccination rate of 90% by year 2010, rates remain low and racial disparities exist. This paper systematically reviewed medical literature published between 1981 and 2000 regarding physician and patient knowledge, attitudes, and practices related to pneumococcal vaccination. Among physicians the vaccine is generally believed to be efficacious and safe but difficulty in determining the vaccination status ...
