1. Baker, Susan Kay. DETERMINING APPROPRIATE OUTCOME MEASURES IN A PSYCHOSOCIAL REHABILITATION MODEL FOR THE MENTALLY ILL: A KNOWLEDGEABLE CITIZENS PERSPECTIVE.

Degree: PhD, Political Science and Public Administration, 2012, Mississippi State University

This dissertation research focused on the determination of appropriate outcome measures for community-based psychosocial rehabilitation programs for the mentally ill from the perspective of knowledgeable citizens. Specifically, this research identified a conflict between the Mississippi Department of Mental Health, as the certifying agency, and the Mississippi Division of Medicaid, as the funding agency, with regard to the transitional employment component of the psychosocial rehabilitation program. In order to ascertain whether transitional employment should be retained in the psychosocial rehabilitation program, survey questionnaires and in-depth interviews were completed with one hundred and sixty-eight consumers and twenty-three staff in six psychosocial rehabilitation Clubhouse programs in north central Mississippi. The survey questionnaires and interviews focused primarily on the effects of demographics, diagnosis, and barriers to employment on the willingness of consumers with mental illness to participate in transitional employment. Eleven independent variables were identified including age, living arrangements, years of attendance in the psychosocial rehabilitation program, diagnosis, stigma/attitudes, external influence, symptoms of mental illness, training/experience/education deficits, social/cognitive/behavior deficits, financial barriers, and total barriers to employment. Mixed methodology found convergence between quantitative and qualitative findings with regard to seven independent variables and differences with regard to four. Mixed methods found age, living arrangements, and years of attendance in the psychosocial rehabilitation program were not predictive of willingness to participate in transitional employment. Mixed methods found that stigma/attitudes, external influence, symptoms of mental illness, and total barriers to employment were predictive of willingness to participate in transitional employment. Symptoms of mental illness were found to have the greatest impact. Mixed methods also differed in the findings with regard to four variables. While no statistical significance was found to support diagnosis, training/experience/education deficits, social/cognitive/behavior deficits, or financial barriers as predictors of willingness to participate in transitional employment, substantively these variables are important. Based on the findings, the study recommends adjustments and considerations by the Mississippi Department of Mental Health, the Mississippi Division of Medicaid, and the psychosocial rehabilitation programs that will reconcile the differences and lead to the development and implementation of appropriate outcome measures. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Robert Buchanan (chair), Dr. Eddie French (committee member), Dr. Dragan Stanisevski (committee member), Dr. Barbara Patrick (committee member).

2. Lawrence-Jackson, Kywaii K. The implementation of a state monitoring and surveillance program: What factors influence the state policy?.

Degree: PhD, Political Science and Public Administration, 2012, Mississippi State University

This study examines state variations in health care services for children with Autism and other developmental disabilities across the fifty states through the Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network (ADDM). The ADDM network monitors and tracks the number of children with Autism and other developmental disabilities. The purpose of this study is, first, to understand the differences between the states in the implementation of the ADDM network and, second, to determine what state factors (political variable, i.e., party identification; structural administrative variables, i.e., Medicaid Home and Community Based Service Waiver, HCBS (Section1915C) and the number of pediatricians per 10,000 children; Autism prevalence variable, i.e., Autism among children in special education per 10,000 children; and state economic variables, i.e., spending per pupil for children with Autism in special education, children in poverty, and state financial health) influence the likelihood of a state applying for the ADDM network. Furthermore, the purpose of this study is to consider the potential impact of these various state characteristics in order to understand what state factors might contribute to such differences. The results reveal that structural administrative and economic factors influence a states decision to apply for the ADDM network. Furthermore, political factors (e.g., Democratic party control of governorship and legislature) did not influence a states decision to apply for the ADDM network. However, when controlling for Republican political party identification, the structural administrative, economic, and political (Republican-controlled legislature) state characteristics influence whether a state applying for the ADDM network. The results indicate that political party control does not play a significant role in determining whether a state will apply for the ADDM network. In expanding the research, to include another structural administrative factor (prior application), political party control (i.e., Republican-controlled legislature) was no longer significant. Thus, the bureaucratic environment is not influencing the actions of state administrators. Instead the individual characteristics of the state is influencing whether a state will apply for the ADDM network. Understanding the differences between the states in the implementation of the ADDM network provides a comprehensive model for establishing the ADDM network or similar programs in other states. Advisors/Committee Members: Dagmar Radin (committee member), Rick Travis (committee member), Barbara Patrick (committee member), Robert Buchanan (chair).

3. Fortune, Melody L. THE INFLUENCE OF SOCIAL DETERMINANTS ON LATE STAGE BREAST CANCER AND THE IMPACT OF THE NATIONAL BREAST AND CERVICAL CANCER PROGRAM ON LATE STAGE BREAST CANCER DIAGNOSIS.

Degree: PhD, Political Science and Public Administration, 2011, Mississippi State University

This dissertation research focused on breast cancer and social determinants that have been shown to influence the outcomes of this devastating disease. Although heart disease is the leading cause of death for women, more women feel that they will die from breast cancer. Breast cancer is the most common diagnosed cancer in women exacting an emotional and economic hardship for many women. There are no known causes of breast cancer, but there are certain genetic and social factors that pre-dispose women to this disease. Also, diagnosis at later stages of disease has been shown to have adverse outcomes for many. This research examined the effects that social determinants had on breast cancer stage of diagnosis. The social determinants researched to examine their influence on breast cancer outcomes were race, geographical location, health insurance, and income. Also, this research examined the influence of Public Health Law, 101-354, enacted to decrease health disparity from breast and cervical cancer for minorities and medically underserved women had on breast cancer diagnosis for women enrolled in the Mississippi Breast and Cervical Cancer Program. Complimentary to PHL 101-354, Public Health Law 106-354, the Breast and Cervical Cancer Treatment Act, was enacted giving states the option of providing health insurance through Medicaid for eligible women with a diagnosis of cancer of the breast or cervix, including precancerous conditions, for treatment services. The results of this study revealed that race and health insurance were the two major factors that negatively impacted stages of breast cancer diagnoses. Although hypothesized, geographical location and income did not significantly affect late stage breast cancer rates.
