Asia Pac Psychiatry 2020 Mar 23;12(1):e12374. Epub 2019 Dec 23.

It is therefore imperative that clinicians seek to understand service users' wishes for care while they are well and able to provide meaningful input into the discussion. Achieving such an end may be done by discussing and completing a psychiatric advance directive. Read More

Stigmas toward psychosis-related clinical features among the general public in Taiwan.

Asia Pac Psychiatry 2020 Mar 3;12(1):e12370. Epub 2019 Nov 3.

Department of Psychiatry, National Taiwan University Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan.

Introduction: Stigma can be a barrier to early intervention of severe mental illnesses, especially schizophrenia, which further leads to poor outcomes. Mental health campaigns were designed to educate the general public about signs for early identification of psychosis, but the line between schizophrenia and attenuated psychosis was not well demarcated. We wonder if people would generalize their stigmas towards schizophrenia to subjects with subthreshold psychotic symptoms. Read More

A narrative review of the evidence regarding the use of telemedicine to deliver video-interpreting during dementia assessments for older people.

Asia Pac Psychiatry 2019 Sep 25;11(3):e12355. Epub 2019 Apr 25.

Social Gerontology Division, National Ageing Research Institute, Parkville, Victoria, Australia.

Introduction: As Australia's aging population increases and diversifies, there will be a growing need to address the burden of dementia among culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities. Due to a lack of CALD-appropriate services and bilingual health professionals, older people from CALD backgrounds often receive a delayed diagnosis of dementia. The use of telemedicine (TM) to deliver video-interpreting services may overcome the barriers of interpreter availability when diagnosing and assessing dementia in older people from CALD backgrounds.
