Dataset: Emergence and Evolution of Social Self-management of Parkinson's Disease ()
|Dataset Full Name||Emergence and Evolution of Social Self-management of Parkinson's Disease|
The Emergence and Evolution of Social Self-Management of Parkinson's Disease study (SocM-PD) is a mixed-method (quantitative-qualitative) prospective cohort study of how people with Parkinson's disease and their primary caregiver (as available) naturalistically manage chronic disease, wellness and social life in their home and community.
This longitudinal study is focused on social self-management. Social self-management is defined as the practices and experiences that ensure personal social comfort while supporting mental and physical well-being. Parkinson's Disease offers a model for studying the effect of physical disease on the social self-management of daily life when physical symptoms affect fundamental social capacities. The study's objective is to understand the emergence and evolution of the trajectories of the self-management of the social lives of people living with Parkinson's disease. The central hypothesis is that expressive capacity predicts systematic change in the pattern of social self-management and quality of life outcomes.
The specific aims of the study are to: 1) characterize social self-management trajectories over the 3 year period; 2) estimate the degree to which expressive nonverbal capacity predicts the trajectory; and 3) determine the moderating effect of gender on the association between expressive capacity and change in social self-management.
