Characterising urban green space density and footpath-accessibility in models of BMI.

Philip Carthy, Sean Lyons, Anne Nolan,

BACKGROUND:While exposure to urban green spaces has been associated with various physical health benefits, the evidence linking these spaces to lower BMI, particularly among older people, is mixed. We ask whether footpath availability, generally unobserved in the existing literature, may mediate exposure to urban green space and help explain this ... Read more >>

Comparing Underlying and Contributory Cause of Death in Registry Data With End-of-Life Proxy Interviews: Findings From The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA).

Mark Ward, Peter May, Charles Normand, Rose Anne Kenny, Anne Nolan,

Cause of death is an important outcome in end-of-life (EOL) research. However, difficulties in assigning cause of death have been well documented. We compared causes of death in national death registrations with those reported in EOL interviews. Data were from The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA), a nationally representative ...

Philip Carthy, Aonghus Ó Domhnaill, Margaret O'Mahony, Anne Nolan, Frank Moriarty, Brian Broderick, Martina Hennessy, Aoife Donnelly, Owen Naughton, Sean Lyons,

BACKGROUND:Links between air pollution and asthma are less well established for older adults than some younger groups. Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) concentrations are widely used as an indicator of transport-related air pollution, and some literature suggests NO2 may directly affect asthma.

The impact of prescription drug co-payments for publicly insured families.

Gretta Mohan, Anne Nolan,

Co-payments for prescription drugs are a common feature of many healthcare systems, although often with exemptions for vulnerable population groups. International evidence demonstrates that cost-sharing for medicines may delay necessary care, increase use of other forms of healthcare and result in poorer health outcomes. Existing studies concentrate on adults and ... Read more >>

Personality and preventive healthcare utilisation: Evidence from the Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing.

Anne Nolan, Cathal McCrory, Patrick Moore,

There is extensive empirical evidence that personality is associated with many outcomes and behaviours, such as educational outcomes, labour market participation, savings behaviour, health behaviours, physical health status and mortality. Use of preventive healthcare services (e.g., vaccinations, screening, etc.) is a potential pathway explaining the link between personality and health, ... Read more >>

Did the expansion of free GP care impact demand for Emergency Department attendances? A difference-in-differences analysis.

Brendan Walsh, Anne Nolan, Aoife Brick, Conor Keegan,

The removal of co-payments for General Practitioner (GP) services has been shown to increase utilisation of GP care. The introduction of free GP care may also have spillover effects on utilisation of other healthcare such as Emergency Department (ED) services, which often serve as substitutes for primary care, and where ...
