A cross-sectional study of current work ability after radical prostatectomy
BMC Urology Feb 05, 2020
Dahl AA, et al. - Researchers sought to investigate the prevalence of men who had high vs moderate/poor current work ability correlated with their lifetime best work ability at a mean of 3.0 years after robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy and to study variables associated with moderate/poor work ability at survey. Between January 2005 and August 2010, researchers designed a questionnaire-based study of men who had robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy at Oslo University Hospital, Radiumhospitalet. Further, descriptive statistics and logistic regression analyses were used. After prostatectomy, among them 777 responded (79%), 730 reported on current work ability, socio-demographic data, somatic and mental health, and typical adverse effects (the EPIC-26). Current work ability is a beneficial measure for the working capacity, especially of retired men. After robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy, socio-demographic, cancer-related, health, psychological and typical adverse effect variables were significantly correlated with moderate/poor current work ability, and several health and psychological variables are amenable to identification and treatment by healthcare providers.Go to Original
