Abstract

Research has demonstrated links between patient-centered communication (PCC) and patients’ health outcomes. However, little is known about the underlying processes that may mediate the relationship. This study is one of the first to examine the influence of PCC on older adults’ health outcomes, as well as the mediation role of health competence, from a longitudinal perspective. With a general basis of Street et al.’s pathway model, we proposed and tested mediation pathways linking patient-centered commu- nication to the older population’s general and mental health, mediated by health competence. Data from 2011, 2017 and 2020 iterations of the Health Information National Trends Survey (HINTS) were used for this study. This study focused on older adults aged 60 and above. Results indicated that after controlling participants’ age, gender, education, income and race, PCC is related to the older people’s health outcomes either directly or indirectly, irrespective of time series. Specifically, health competence was found to significantly mediate the associations between PCC and the older adults’ general health or mental health over the three iterations. Noteworthily, findings from this study also revealed that different dimensions of PCC might exert different influences on older patients’ health competence and health outcomes.
