AbstractBackground. A key principle of patient-centred outcomes research (PCOR) is the engagement of patients and other stakeholders in the research process, but the evidence is still emerging on the impact patient engagement has on the research process. A 10-step framework has been developed to provide methodological guidance for patient engagement throughout the research process. However, the utility of the framework for patient engagement has not been tested in actual research studies. Objective. To describe researcher's overall experiences with engaging patients at the beginning of their PCOR research process. Methods. Twelve in-depth interviews were conducted face-to-face and by telephone with PCOR researchers between November 2014 and January 2015 at an Academic Health Center in the eastern USA. All data were audiotaped and transcribed, and NVivo 10 software was used for data analysis. Results. Four major themes emerged (i) the importance of patient engagement and how it provides 'a perspective you can't get unless you talk to the patient'; (ii) the impact of patient engagement; (iii) challenges and barriers of engagement; and (iv) the realities of patient engagement. Conclusions. Researchers' views illustrate the need to re-evaluate patient engagement in PCOR based on current realities. Given the many challenges to engagement that researchers encounter, it may be more productive to redefine the process of patient engagement so that the issues researchers now face are taken into account in future funding announcements, engagement rubrics and methodology frameworks developed.

Healthcare Provider Communication with Young Adults: Patient-Centered Communication, Patient Satisfaction, Patient Trust, Social Support, Self-Care Skills, and Emotional Well-BeingNichols, Helen M.; Sacco, Paul; 0000-0002-6782-0869 (2018)Patient-centered communication is critical to the delivery of quality healthcare services. Although numerous health outcomes have been connected to patient-provider communication, there is limited research that has explored the processes and pathways between communication and health. Research among young adults (ages 26-39 years) is even more scarce, despite findings that health communication does vary with age. This study used data from the 2014 Health Interview National Trends Survey to (1) test a scale of seven items measuring patient-centered communication among young adults age 26 to 39 and (2) explore the relationship between patient-centered communication, patient trust, patient satisfaction, social support, self-care skills, and emotional well-being among young adults age 26 to 39. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses were conducted and results showed that a one-factor model of patient-centered communication among young adults fit the data well. In the final regression model, income, history of depression diagnosis, patient-centered communication, patient trust, social support, and patient self-efficacy (self-care skills) were all significantly related to emotional well-being. Post-hoc analyses showed that self-efficacy and patient trust modify the association between general health and emotional well-being. Among respondents who reported poor overall health, increases in self-efficacy and trust in their provider are associated with corresponding improvement in their predicted emotional well-being. This is in contrast to respondents who reported excellent overall health, for whom an improvements in self-efficacy and trust did not have the same effect on predicted emotional well-being. There was a significant interaction between depression and self-efficacy, as respondents who reported being diagnosed with depression showed a stronger relationship between self-efficacy and greater predicted well-being. Post-hoc analyses also showed significant interactions between patient-centered communication, satisfaction, and social support. Respondents who reported lower levels of PCC, showed decreased predicted emotional well-being as their satisfaction and perceived social support increased. These findings suggest the need to explore the means through which communication can impact emotional well-being, specifically among young adults who are in poor health or have a history of depression. Future research should also include longitudinal studies, in order to determine causality and directionality among constructs.
