1. Miller, Sandra G. Risk Assessment for Cognitive Disabilities in Low Birth Weight Infants: Use of Decline in Head Circumference Growth as a Key Indicator for Intervention and Referral.

Degree: Master's, School of Health Professions and Studies: Nursing, 2001, University of Michigan

One of the earliest predictive measurements of cognitive disability risk in low birth weight (LBW) infants is the decline in head growth velocity during the first 8 months of life (Stathis, O'Callahan, Harvey and Rodgers, 1999). The purpose of this exploratory study was to understand Michigan nurse practitioner (NP) strategies for assessment of cognitive disability risk in LBW infants, specifically declines in head circumference growth as the key indicator for intervention and referral. Original research was conducted from a 22-item researcher designed survey mailed to Michigan NP's with an overall response rate of 41%. Of these, 26 NP's met screening criteria and three NP specialties were represented. Over 85% of respondents recognized birth rate less than 2500 grams as most predictive of long term disability. Ninety-six percent agreed that growth and development should be monitored at each visit. However, over one-third (36%) felt head growth measurement was unimportant in the clinical setting and only 54% recognized delays in head circumference growth as the key indicator for referral and intervention. Cognitive disability, a sequelae to LBW, can be minimized by early utilization of support services. Results of this survey suggest that Michigan's NP's providing care to this unique population of infants could improve cognitive outcomes by recognizing and responding to the earliest indication of cognitive risk, decline in head circumference growth. Further research is needed to build the knowledge base.

2. Fenner, Deborah K. Health Perceptions and Health Behaviors in the Elderly Age 65 and Older.

Degree: Master's, School of Health Professions and Studies: Nursing, 2002, University of Michigan

Life expectancy in the Unites States is rising, and with it the potential for disease and disability. Programs of health promotion and disease prevention have traditionally targeted the young and middle-aged. A bias on the part of the health care community in viewing the elderly as unlikely candidates for health promotion programs is questioned. Though their numbers, comparatively speaking, represent a modest proportion of the total population of the United States, the elderly (age 65 years and older) incur almost 50% of the cost of health care dollars spent in this country annually. Of interest is the likelihood of participation, by the elderly in programs of health promotion. Purpose: The purpose of this correlation study is to assess if a relationship exists between the perception of health and health promotion behavior in the elderly age 65 years and older. Pender's Health Promotion Model (1996) provides the theoretical framework for this study. Data is based on self-reports derived from questioners dispersed to a convenience sample of elderly at a community senior citizen center located in the Midwest. Findings: Statistical analysis included the Pearson’s Product-moment Correlation and findings are reported as aggregate data. Though the findings did not support a statistically significant relationship between health perception and health promotion behavior, the presence of a clinical relationship of low to moderate strength is supported by the correlation coefficients. This study has implications for nurse practitioners (NP’s) in the delivery of healthcare that takes into account those factors influencing health behavior. It also assists in predicting those individuals most likely to participate in programs of health promotion, and provides insight into the design, implementation, and subsequent evaluation of such programs. Such knowledge strategically positions the NP in the role of providing quality, holistic health care that meets the individual needs of the patient. Advisors/Committee Members: Schaal, Thomas C. (committee member), Periard, Mary (committee member), Flint (affiliationumcampus).
