  5. 5. article abstract Objective: This study examined an intervention to manage symptoms and adherence to oral agents. Methods: A 3-group pilot study determined how an Automated Voice Response (AVR) system alone (n = 40), or the AVR with strategies to manage symptoms and adherence (n = 40), or the AVR with strategies to manage adherence (n = 39) reduced symptom severity and improved adherence. Participants received a Symptom Management Toolkit, completed a baseline interview, and were randomized to receive 8 weekly AVR calls. An exit interview occurred at 10 weeks.

  8. 8. article abstract The number of elderly Americans, those over the age of 65 years of age, continues to climb. A lifetime of poor nutrition and lack of exercise has led many elderly patients to experience coronary artery disease (CAD) later in life, leading to invasive procedures and other forms of disease management that contribute to mounting health care costs and lower quality of life… This paper will explore three key disciplines linked to health promotion in the elderly and why this topic is so vital for our future.
