1. Evans, Timothy Warren. Development and evaluation of a computer aided pharmacy profile review system in a community hospital.

Degree: MS, Pharmaceutical Science, 1977, Oregon State University

A 140 bed community hospital was the setting where the development and evaluation of a computer aided patient profile review system took place. This clinically oriented system involved the review of patient's drug regimen, diet, allergies, and laboratory tests for well documented contraindications or interactions. The pharmacist was involved in monitoring the potential problems that the computer system located, and would determine their validity and act accordingly by notifying other professional staff of the problems. The goal of this study was to determine the effectiveness of the computer aided system in a community hospital. The study was designed to compare the impact the pharmacists had on changes in patient's orders before the computerized system was begun, with the changes initiated by the pharmacists afterwards. Statistical analysis of the data collected showed that there was a significant increase in the number of pharmacy initiated order and scheduling changes after the computer aided system was initiated (NC= 0.05). Part of the drug regimen review included a Schedule II drug order renewal or discontinuation alert initiated by the system. This section of the program had the largest influence on the effectiveness of the system and for this specific area, the computer system was considered effective. There were 124 order changes that occurred in 31 days in this drug regimen review section. The drug-drug, drug-laboratory test, drug-diet and drug allergy alerts totaled 70 different printouts in 31 days, an average of 2.26 per day. These potential problems had to be scrutinized by the pharmacist and proper action was taken if the problem seemed valid. Only seven of these alerts were eventually used to make order changes. Three additional alerts were drug-laboratory test interactions which were provided to the physician as points of information. These seven alerts were not a numerically large part of the total changes, however, in terms of patient monitoring each alert used was important. By using this broad view of the patient's clinical picture, a more successful monitoring system can be developed. The larger the amount of data collected for each patient being monitored, the greater the potential for locating problems in patient care. The system described in this paper was developed to monitor a patient's drug regimen, diet, laboratory tests and allergies for potential problems. It was shown that within a community hospital, (140 beds) this computer aided monitoring system did create a significant increase in the number of pharmacy initiated order changes that occurred. It is hoped that this study may be of value to other community hospitals that may be considering such a system.

3. Ames, Sheila A. (Sheila Ann). Sociability, constraints, network involvement, and the self-esteem of older women.

Degree: PhD, Family Life, 1980, Oregon State University

The major purpose of this exploratory study was to develop an explanatory model of self-esteem and to interpret the model using the Social Exchange framework. To this end, a main effects and an interaction model emerged which offer promise toward understanding the components of self-esteem. This study examined 325 individual variables which served validity and/or descriptive purposes or joined together to form the main variables under investigation. The study extensively interviewed 70 unmarried, white older women who lived alone in age-peer homogeneous residences within the same Northwestern community. Stepwise regression analysis explained 65 percent of the variance in the self-esteem of these older women. In descending order of explained variance, the main effects model revealed that those respondents who felt of little worth  – ... Less often strove to express themselves in meaningful projects ... Were more reluctant to mobilize needed social support in times of undue stress ... Were more intensely involved in family activities, especially advice, than with friends ... Expressed less over-all satisfaction with their network activities, and ... Felt more depressed than those who reported higher self-esteem. The interaction model further disclosed that"when being without a meaningful project" joined with either "family advice" or "reluctance to seek needed help", either combination more negatively correlated with self-esteem than did each variable separately. Three variables, financial adequacy, physical health capacity, and sociability, positively correlated with self-esteem as hypothesized but did not enter the final models. Apparently, the lack of variability of financial adequacy and physical health capacity and the close association between being without a project and sociability prevented these three variables from entering the final equations. However, the respondents' degree of sociability was instrumental in interpreting the results. Specifically, those respondents endowed with a more gregarious nature evidenced higher financial adequacy, greater physical health capacity, more satisfying network activities, and felt less depressed than did the more reserved isolates. Even when constrained by financial, physical health, or relationship losses, the constrained gregarious still maintained higher self-esteem than did the unconstrained isolates. Finally, by being more self-initiating than the isolates, the gregarious respondents sustained their self-esteem by expressing themselves in meaningful projects and by being willing to seek others out for help when their own efforts were insufficient. By more readily substituting feasible opportunities for those they could no longer pursue successfully, the gregarious, more than the isolates, appeared better able to transcend their losses. The isolates, on the other hand, lacked sufficient access to these resources to mobilize the corrective processes that might have enabled them to cope more effectively, and… Advisors/Committee Members: Gravatt, Arthur E.
