Sensky T, Buchi S, 2016, PRISM, a novel visual metaphor measuring personally salient appraisals, attitudes and decision-making: qualitative evidence synthesis, PLOS One, Vol: 11, ISSN: 1932-6203

BackgroundPRISM (the Pictorial Representation of Illness and Self Measure) is a novel, simple visual instrument. Its utility was initially discovered serendipitously, but has been validated as a quantitative measure of suffering. Recently, new applications for different purposes, even in non-health settings, have encouraged further exploration of how PRISM works, and how it might be applied. This review will summarise the results to date from applications of PRISM and propose a generic conceptualisation of how PRISM works which is consistent with all these applications.MethodsA systematic review, in the form of a qualitative evidence synthesis, was carried out of all available published data on PRISM.ResultsFifty-two publications were identified, with a total of 8254 participants. Facilitated by simple instructions, PRISM has been used with patient groups in a variety of settings and cultures. As a measure of suffering, PRISM has, with few exceptions, behaved as expected according to Eric Cassell’s seminal conceptualisation of suffering. PRISM has also been used to assess beliefs about or attitudes to stressful working conditions, interpersonal relations, alcohol consumption, and suicide, amongst others.DiscussionThis review supports PRISM behaving as a visual metaphor of the relationship of objects (eg ‘my illness’) to a subject (eg ‘myself’) in a defined context (eg ‘my life at the moment’). As a visual metaphor, it is quick to complete and yields personally salient information. PRISM is likely to have wide applications in assessing beliefs, attitudes, and decision-making, because of its properties, and because it yields both quantitative and qualitative data. In medicine, it can serve as a generic patient-reported outcome measure. It can serve as a tool for representational guidance, can be applied to developing strategies visually, and is likely to have applications in coaching, psychological assessment and therapeutic i

Background. Health-related quality of life (QOL) is an importantoutcome for older people who are often on dialysisfor life. Little is, however, known about differences in QOLon haemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD) in olderage groups. Randomising patients to either modality toassess outcomes is not feasible.Methods. In this cross-sectional, multi-centred study weconducted QOL assessments (Short Form-12 Mental andPhysical Component Summary scales, Hospital Anxietyand Depression Scale and Illness Intrusiveness RatingsScale) in 140 people (aged 65 years or older) on PDand HD.Results. The groups were similar in age, gender, time ondialysis, ethnicity, Index of Deprivation (based on postcode),dialysis adequacy, cognitive function (Mini-MentalState Exam and Trail-Making Test B), nutritional status(Subjective Global Assessment) and social networks.There was a higher comorbidity score in the HD group.Regression analyses were undertaken to ascertain whichvariables significantly influence each QOL assessment.All were influenced by symptom count highlighting thatthe patient’s perception of their symptoms is a criticaldeterminant of their mental and physical well being.Modality was found to be an independent predictorof illness intrusion with greater intrusion felt in thoseon HD.Conclusions. Overall, in two closely matched demographicgroups of older dialysis patients, QOL was similar, if notbetter, in those on PD. This study strongly supports offeringPD to all suitable older people.
