#BJPsych and social media - likes, followers and leading?

Br J Psychiatry 2019 May;214(5):245-247

Consultant Psychiatrist,Clinical Director,Oxleas National Health Service Foundation Trust; and Senior Lecturer,King's College London,UK.

SummaryThis article explores the growing interface between social media and academic publishing. We discuss how the British Journal of Psychiatry (BJPsych) and other scientific journals are engaging with social media to communicate in a digital world. A growing body of evidence suggests that public visibility and constructive conversation on social media networks can be beneficial for researchers and clinicians, influencing research in a number of key ways.

Br J Psychiatry 2019 May;214(5):273-278

Professor of Psychiatric Research,Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience,King's College London,UK.

Background: High continuity of care is prized by users of mental health services and lauded in health policy. It is especially important in long-term conditions like schizophrenia. However, it is not routinely measured, and therefore not often evaluated when service reorganisations take place. Read More

Br J Psychiatry 2019 Apr 22:1-5. Epub 2019 Apr 22.

Laureate Institute for Brain Research,University of Tulsa,USA.

SummaryMental health and substance use disorders are the leading cause of long-term disability and a cause of significant mortality, worldwide. However, it is widely recognised that clinical practice in psychiatry has not fundamentally changed for over half a century. The Royal College of Psychiatrists is reviewing its trainee curriculum to identify neuroscience that relates to psychiatric practice. Read More

Br J Psychiatry 2019 Apr 10:1-7. Epub 2019 Apr 10.

Professor of Epidemiology,Department of Epidemiology,Rollins School of Public Health,Emory University,USA.

Background: Late-life depression has become an important public health problem. Available evidence suggests that late-life depression is associated with all-cause and cardiovascular mortality among older adults living in the community, although the associations have not been comprehensively reviewed and quantified.AimTo estimate the pooled association of late-life depression with all-cause and cardiovascular mortality among community-dwelling older adults.

Randomised controlled trial comparing narrative exposure therapy with present-centred therapy for older patients with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Br J Psychiatry 2019 Apr 8:1-9. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Professor Emeritus Psychotraumatology,Department of Clinical Psychology, Utrecht University; and Arq Psychotrauma Expert Group,the Netherlands.

Background: Evidence-based treatment and age-specific services are required to address the needs of trauma-affected older populations. Narrative exposure therapy (NET) may present an appropriate treatment approach for this population since it provides prolonged exposure in a lifespan perspective. As yet, however, no trial on this intervention has been conducted with older adults from Western Europe. Read More

Laboratorio de Neurociencias (LIM-27),Departamento e Instituto de Psiquiatria,Hospital das Clinicas,Faculdade de Medicina,Universidade de Sao Paulo,Brazil.

Background: Experimental studies indicate that lithium may facilitate neurotrophic/protective responses in the brain. Epidemiological and imaging studies in bipolar disorder, in addition to a few trials in Alzheimer's disease support the clinical translation of these findings. Nonetheless, there is limited controlled data about potential use of lithium to treat or prevent dementia. Read More

Professor and Head,The Centre for Psychiatry,Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine,Barts and The London School of Medicine & Dentistry,Queen Mary University of London;and Honorary Consultant Psychiatrist,East London NHS Foundation Trust,UK.

SummarySchizophrenia and anorexia nervosa were recently added to the list of conditions for which whole genome sequencing might be indicated as part of the 100 000 Genomes Project, reflecting the remarkable recent progress in findings emerging from psychiatric genetics research. Genetic testing methods may offer increased opportunities for diagnosis and estimation of familial risk and could have implications for management and treatment options. They also present ethical and philosophical questions about the role of testing and storage of genetic information. Read More

Self-management interventions for people with severe mental illness: systematic review and meta-analysis.

Br J Psychiatry 2019 May 22;214(5):260-268. Epub 2019 Mar 22.

Professor of Social and Community Psychiatry,Division of Psychiatry,University College London,UK.

Background: Self-management is intended to empower individuals in their recovery by providing the skills and confidence they need to take active steps in recognising and managing their own health problems. Evidence supports such interventions in a range of long-term physical health conditions, but a recent systematic synthesis is not available for people with severe mental health problems.AimsTo evaluate the effectiveness of self-management interventions for adults with severe mental illness (SMI).

A pragmatist's guide to the assessment of decision-making capacity.

Br J Psychiatry 2019 Apr;214(4):183-185

Professor,Departments of Medicine,Medical Ethics and Health Policy, andNeurology,University of Pennsylvania; andCo-Director of the Penn Memory Center,Perelman School of Medicine,University of Pennsylvania,USA.

SummaryChoice, understanding, appreciation and reasoning compose the standard model of decision-making capacity. Difficulties in determining capacity can arise when patients exhibit partial impairment. We suggest that a pragmatic approach, focusing on how capacity status affects the ultimate decision to override the patient's wishes, can help evaluators resolve difficult cases. Read More

Associate Professor, Obesity Center, Academic Specialist Center, Stockholm Health Services; and Clinical Epidemiology Unit, Department of Medicine, Karolinska Institutet,Sweden.

Background: Sedentary behaviour can be associated with poor mental health, but it remains unclear whether all types of sedentary behaviour have equivalent detrimental effects.AimsTo model the potential impact on depression of replacing passive with mentally active sedentary behaviours and with light and moderate-to-vigorous physical activity. An additional aim was to explore these relationships by self-report data and clinician diagnoses of depression. Read More

Br J Psychiatry 2019 Mar 14:1-6. Epub 2019 Mar 14.

Director,Alzheimer Scotland Dementia Research Centre,University of Edinburgh; and Co-Director,Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology,University of Edinburgh,UK.

Background: Environmental risk factors for dementia are poorly understood. Aluminium and fluorine in drinking water have been linked with dementia but uncertainties remain about this relationship.AimsIn the largest longitudinal study in this context, we set out to explore the individual effect of aluminium and fluoride in drinking water on dementia risk and, as fluorine can increase absorption of aluminium, we also examine any synergistic influence on dementia.

Br J Psychiatry 2019 Feb 27:1-6. Epub 2019 Feb 27.

Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry,Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Adelaide,Australia.

Background: Over the past 20 years the prevalence of child and adolescent mental disorders in high-income countries has not changed despite increased investment in mental health services. Insufficient contact with mental health services may be a contributing factor; however, it is not known what proportion of children have sufficient contact with health professionals to allow delivery of treatment meeting minimal clinical practice guidelines, or how long children experience symptoms prior to receiving treatment.AimsTo investigate the level of mental healthcare received by Australian children from age 4 years to 14 years.
