Health-related quality of life, disease perception, salutogenic and pathogenic factors in patients with rheumatoid arthritis according to time of diagnosis

Project Details

Description

Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) studies have been developed since the 1980s. Initially, the investigations were focused on analyzing the impact of physical rather than mental factors on HHRoL since they were led by physicians. interested in testing medications and observing their influence on the quality of life of patients with rheumatic diseases. Later, with the rise of health psychology, the impact of negative emotions on HRQoL such as anxiety, depression, stress and hopelessness began to be studied by both psychologists and doctors. More recently, in the last twenty years, with the development of positive psychology, isolated studies have been carried out in Anglo-Saxon countries, especially on the impact of positive/salutogenic variables such as resilience, self-transcendence, optimism, social support, self-efficacy, psychological well-being, etc. , on HRQoL in patients diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). RA is a chronic, autoimmune disease that affects the synovial membrane of the joints and represents an important public health problem. Most of the studies of rheumatoid arthritis in CVRS are cross-sectional and longitudinal, finding that it is more affected physically, psychosocially and emotionally than other chronic pathologies and even that of the healthy population, but little is known about studies evaluating the cvrs and much less than impact have positive (salutogenic) and pathogenic variables different stages of the disease. It is therefore that the objective of this study is to compare the levels of quality of life related to health, the perception of illness, salutogenic and pathogenic factors at five, fifteen and thirty years of diagnosis of disease in arthritis patients. rheumatoid of the fundare foundation of colombia.

Expected results

isi or scopus article, sent. strengthen investigative skills of statistical data tabulation in psychology students. research result report. Presentation of papers at events. it differs in that there are no projects that have measured the pathogenic and salutogenic factors of patients with RA in our context by age groups. The results of the study would make it possible to point out future intervention programs focused on positive variables for patients with RA according to the stage of the disease, an issue that deserves attention regarding the mental health of these patients.
