Abstract

The impact of arthritic pain, depression, and perceived health on functional limitations and disability in older persons is not clear. This study investigated the role of arthritic pain in functional limitations and disability in older persons. The sample consisted of 1,211 French-speaking persons aged 65 or older. Approximately 32 per cent of the subjects reported having arthritic pain, of whom 13 per cent reported considerable functional limitations. The results show that arthritic pain, age, gender, education, chronic illnesses, perceived health, and depression explained 28 per cent of the variance in functional limitations and 30 per cent of the variance in disability. The present results have implications for the prevention and management of functional limitations and disability in older persons.

Résumé

L'examen des relations entre la présence de la douleur arthritique, les symptômes dépressifs, la santé perçue, les limites et incapacités fonctionnelles ont fait l'objet de peu d'études spécifiques chez les personnes âgées. La présente étude a pour but de cerner le rôle de la douleur arthritique dans les limites et incapacités fonctionnelles chez les personnes âgées. L'échantillon est composé de 1211 francophones de plus de 65 ans. Environ 32% des personnes étudiées affirment avoir de la douleur arthritique et 13% manifestent un degré considérable de limites fonctionnelles. Sept variables, soit la douleur arthritique, l'âge, le sexe, l'éducation, la perception de la santé, le nombre de maladies chroniques, et les symptômes dépressifs, expliquent 28% de la variance des limites fonctionnelles et 30% de la variance des incapacités fonctionnelles. Les résultats de la présente étude peuvent aider à mieux orienter les programmes de prévention et d'intervention destinés aux personnes âgées ayant des limites et des incapacités fonctionnelles.
