Developing learning slope scores for the repeatable battery for the assessment of neuropsychological status.

Robert J Spencer, Brian D Gradwohl, Trevor F Williams, Victoria M Kordovski, Dustin B Hammers,

Initial learning and learning slope are often acknowledged as important qualitative aspects of learning, but the Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status (RBANS) contains discrete indices for neither. The traditional method of calculating learning slope involves a difference score between the last trial and first trial, which is ... Read more >>

Operationalizing and evaluating the Frascati criteria for functional decline in diagnosing HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders in adults.

Anastasia Matchanova, Steven Paul Woods, Victoria M Kordovski,

The Frascati criteria for HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND; Antinori et al. 2007) outlines a classification scheme for functional decline that-despite being over a decade old-has not heretofore been examined systematically. Participants included 307 HIV+ and 183 HIV- participants who completed self-report, clinician-rated, and performance-based measures of functional status, along with ... Read more >>

Conceptualizing and Assessing Everyday Functioning in the Context of HIV-Associated Neurocognitive Disorders.

Victoria M Kordovski, Savanna M Tierney, Steven Paul Woods,

Combination antiretroviral therapy has reduced the rates of severe HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND), but the prevalence of milder forms of HAND that can affect everyday functioning remains high. As HIV-infected adults approach near-normal life expectancies, they may become increasingly susceptible to declines in everyday functioning secondary to a variety of ... Read more >>

A Preliminary Study of Health Literacy in an Ethnically Diverse University Sample.

Gunes Avci, Victoria M Kordovski, Steven P Woods,

There is a considerable body of research on health literacy in adult healthcare settings, mostly among at-risk clinical populations. However, much less is known about health literacy among youth transitioning to adulthood, including college students. Despite the protective effects of higher levels of education, some college students might have other ... Read more >>

The effects of aging and HIV disease on employment status and functioning.

Victoria M Kordovski, Steven Paul Woods, Marizela Verduzco, Jessica Beltran,

OBJECTIVE:As the prevalence of older adults living with HIV disease increases, questions are emerging regarding the extent to which older age amplifies the adverse effects of HIV on employment status and functioning. This cross-sectional study sought to (1) investigate the combined effects of HIV and older age on employment status, ... Read more >>

A systematic review of prospective memory in HIV disease: from the laboratory to daily life.

Gunes Avci, David P Sheppard, Savanna M Tierney, Victoria M Kordovski, Kelli L Sullivan, Steven Paul Woods,

OBJECTIVE:Prospective memory (PM) is described as the capacity to form and maintain an intention that is executed in response to a specific cue. Neural injury and associated neurocognitive disorders are common among persons living with HIV disease, who might therefore be susceptible to impairment in PM. METHOD:This literature review utilized ... Read more >>

Is the Newest Vital Sign a Useful Measure of Health Literacy in HIV Disease?

Victoria M Kordovski, Steven Paul Woods, Gunes Avci, Marizela Verduzco, Erin E Morgan,

BACKGROUND:Limited health literacy is common among persons infected with HIV and has been linked to poor mental and physical health outcomes, but there are no well-validated screening measures of health literacy in this vulnerable clinical population. The present study evaluates the usefulness of the Newest Vital Sign (NVS) as a ... Read more >>

A comparison of the sensitivity, stability, and reliability of three diagnostic schemes for HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders.

Savanna M Tierney, David P Sheppard, Victoria M Kordovski, Marika P Faytell, Gunes Avci, Steven Paul Woods,

HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) occur in approximately 50% of HIV-infected individuals, yet available diagnostic criteria yield varying prevalence rates. This study examined the frequency, reliability, and sensitivity to everyday functioning problems of three HAND diagnostic criteria (DSM-5, Frascati, Gisslén). Participants included 361 adults with HIV disease and 199 seronegative adults. ... Read more >>

Benchmarks of meaningful impairment on the MSFC and BICAMS.

Ralph Hb Benedict, Allison S Drake, Lauren N Irwin, Seth E Frndak, Katrina A Kunker, Anjum L Khan, Victoria M Kordovski, Robert W Motl, Bianca Weinstock-Guttman,

BACKGROUND:Cognitive and motor abilities in multiple sclerosis (MS) are typically quantified using reliable, consensus standard tests validated in the MS population. While these performance measures are associated with vocational disability in parametric analyses, translation of raw scores into anchors reflecting clinically relevant, functional impairment requires further research. OBJECTIVE:To examine performance-based ... Read more >>

Latent profile analysis of regression-based norms demonstrates relationship of compounding MS symptom burden and negative work events.

Seth E Frndak, Audrey M Smerbeck, Lauren N Irwin, Allison S Drake, Victoria M Kordovski, Katrina A Kunker, Anjum L Khan, Ralph H B Benedict,

OBJECTIVE:We endeavored to clarify how distinct co-occurring symptoms relate to the presence of negative work events in employed multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. Latent profile analysis (LPA) was utilized to elucidate common disability patterns by isolating patient subpopulations. METHOD:Samples of 272 employed MS patients and 209 healthy controls (HC) were administered ... Read more >>
