There was an association between 2 HPC items and HRQL in patients who did not report having anxiety or depression; however, this was not observed in individuals with anxiety or depression. This implies that individuals with anxiety or depression might be less likely to engage in and benefit from any of the advised activities.
Similar effects have been observed in cases with diabetes patients, in which depression was reported to adversely influence the effect of behaviour interventions on glycemic control and self-care behaviour, 24 and was associated with decrements in a range of quality-of-life indices, as well as preventive self-care practices.
The latter finding is equally interesting. It seems that patients who were encouraged to talk about their health concerns did not visit the ED as much as those who were not. However, these relationships were not observed between HPC and hospitalizations. Health-related quality of life and multimorbidity were the only factors associated with hospitalizations.
No study, to our knowledge, has explored the association between HPC and hospitalizations. More research is needed to further explore this relationship. Limitations This study has a few limitations that should be considered. First, although the data used in this study were from a large population-based survey, they were self-reported data, which are subject to potential recall bias. Because under-reporting is the most frequent problem with self-reported use of health care services data, 30 this could lead to underestimation of the observed associations.
Second, the cross-sectional nature of the data did not allow us to draw any conclusions regarding the direction of associations between HPC and health outcomes. Third, only the available HPC items in the survey were included in this analysis, and these did not cover all areas of behaviour counseling for patients with chronic conditions. Nevertheless, the included items were among the most commonly studied in relation to outcomes as observed in the literature.
Finally, we included all the variables measured in the survey that could be related to HPC; however, there are other factors that could affect the observed relationships, such as self-care management, adherence, self-efficacy, and health literacy, but data on these variables were not available. Additionally, this study showed an association between HPC and important health outcomes HRQL and ED visitsbut these associations were not apparent for individuals with anxiety or depression.
Further research should explore the barriers to HPC by FPs for patients with chronic conditions and should consider a longitudinal approach to better understand the relationship between counseling and outcomes, as well as the potential mediating role of mental health. The effect of mental health status on the relationship between HPC and these outcomes is also less well understood. There was an association between 2 HPC items ie, diet counseling and needing the help of physicians to make changes and HRQL in patients who did not report having anxiety or depression; however, this association was not observed in those with anxiety or depression.
This implies that patients with anxiety or depression might be less likely to engage in any of the advised HPC activities. Footnotes This article has been peer reviewed.
