Factors predicting older adults use of exercise and acetaminophen for osteoarthritis pain
Journal of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, 06/20/2012
McDonald DD et al. – A total of 213 (46.6%) reported using exercise and/or acetaminophen and did not report using NSAIDs. Older adults reporting arthritis treatment by a practitioner were 2.2 (confidence interval 1.08–4.59) more likely to use recommended arthritis pain treatment, p<.03. Only 3–4% of the variance for use of recommended pain management treatment was explained by the predictors.
