Long-term Outcomes of Intensive Inpatient Care for Severe, Resistant Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.

Can J Psychiatry 2020 May 26:706743720927830. Epub 2020 May 26.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Clinic, Department of Psychiatry, National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Science (NIMHANS), Bangalore, India.

Objective: A substantial proportion of severely ill patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) do not respond to serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SRIs) and are unable to practice cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) on an out-patient basis. We report the short-term (at discharge) and long-term (up to 2 years) outcome of a multimodal inpatient treatment program that included therapist-assisted intensive CBT with adjunctive pharmacotherapy for severely ill OCD patients who are often resistant to SRIs and are either unresponsive or unable to practice outpatient CBT.

Methods: A total of 420 patients, admitted between January 2012 and December 2017 were eligible for the analysis. Read More

Can J Psychiatry 2020 May 19:706743720923072. Epub 2020 May 19.

Department of Medical Humanities, University Medical Centre Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Objectives: Physician-assisted death (PAD), also known as medical assistance in dying, of (PPD) is a global issue of debate.

Preservation of Gray Matter Volume in Early Stage of Bipolar Disorder: A Case for Early Intervention.

Can J Psychiatry 2020 May 18:706743720927827. Epub 2020 May 18.

Department of Psychiatry, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Objective: It has been proposed that different stages of the bipolar disorder might have distinct neurobiological changes. However, the evidence for this has not been consistent, as the studies in early stages of the illness are limited by small sample sizes. The purpose of this study was to investigate the gray matter volume changes in bipolar patients who recently recovered from their first episode of mania (FEM). Read More

A Randomized Sham-controlled Trial of 1-Hz and 10-Hz Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) of the Right Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex in Civilian Post-traumatic Stress Disorder.

Can J Psychiatry 2020 May 7:706743720923064. Epub 2020 May 7.

Department of Psychiatry, University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Objective: Despite effective psychological and pharmacological treatments, there is a large unmet burden of illness in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a noninvasive intervention and a putative treatment strategy for PTSD. The evidence base to date suggests that rTMS targeting the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC), in particular the right DLPFC, leads to improvements in PTSD symptoms. Read More

Can J Psychiatry 2020 Mar 31:706743720916356. Epub 2020 Mar 31.

Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care, Penetanguishene, Ontario, Canada.

Background And Methods: In this study, we surveyed 761 psychiatric hospital staff (69% women, 71% full-time, 56% nursing) regarding their exposure to trauma in the workplace; symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, and anxiety; help seeking; and perceived barriers for help seeking.

Can J Psychiatry 2020 Feb 6:706743720904815. Epub 2020 Feb 6.

Peking University Sixth Hospital, Beijing, China.

Objective: To explore the effect of long-term antipsychotics use on the strength of functional connectivity (FC) in the brains of patients with chronic schizophrenia.

Method: We collected resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging from 15 patients with continuously treated chronic schizophrenia (TCS), 19 patients with minimally TCS (MTCS), and 20 healthy controls (HCs). Then, we evaluated and compared the whole-brain FC strength (FCS; including full-range, short-range, and long-range FCS) among patients with TCS, MTCS, and HCs. Read More

A Prospective Longitudinal Investigation of Cortical Thickness and Gyrification in Schizophrenia.

Can J Psychiatry 2020 Jun 5;65(6):381-391. Epub 2020 Feb 5.

Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurobiology, University of Alabama at Birmingham, AL, USA.

Background: Cortical thickness (CT) and gyrification are complementary indices that assess different aspects of gray matter structural integrity. Both neurodevelopment insults and acute tissue response to antipsychotic medication could underlie the known heterogeneity of treatment response and are well-suited for interrogation into the relationship between gray matter morphometry and clinical outcomes in schizophrenia (SZ).

Methods: Using a prospective design, we enrolled 34 unmedicated patients with SZ and 23 healthy controls. Read More

A Retrospective Study of the Clinical Characteristics Associated with Alcohol and Cannabis use in Early Phase Psychosis.

Can J Psychiatry 2020 Jun 4;65(6):426-435. Epub 2020 Feb 4.

Department of Psychiatry, QEII Health Sciences Centre, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Objective: Alcohol and cannabis misuse are common in patients with early phase psychosis (EPP); however, research has tended to focus primarily on cannabis misuse and EPP outcomes, with a relative lack of data on alcohol misuse. This retrospective cross-sectional EPP study investigated the relationship between cannabis, alcohol, and cannabis combined with alcohol misuse, on age, gender, psychotic, depressive and anxiety symptom severity, and social/occupational functioning, at entry to service.

Methods: Two-hundred and sixty-four EPP patients were divided into 4 groups based on substance use measured by the Alcohol, Smoking and Substance Involvement Screening Test: (1) no to low-level cannabis and alcohol misuse (LU), (2) moderate to high alcohol misuse only (AU), (3) moderate to high cannabis misuse only (CU), and (4) moderate to high alcohol and cannabis misuse (AU + CU).

Examining the Relationships between Cumulative Childhood Adversity and the Risk of Criminal Justice Involvement and Victimization among Homeless Adults with Mental Illnesses after Receiving Housing First Intervention.

Can J Psychiatry 2020 Jun 29;65(6):409-417. Epub 2020 Jan 29.

Department of Psychiatry, University of Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Objectives: Exposure to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) is associated with increased risk of criminal justice involvement and repeated victimization among homeless individuals. This study aimed to (1) examine whether the relationship between cumulative ACE score and odds of experiencing criminal justice involvement and victimization remains significant over time after receiving the Housing First (HF) intervention and (2) investigate the moderating effect of cumulative ACE score on the effectiveness of the HF intervention on the likelihood of experiencing these outcomes among homeless individuals with mental illnesses.

Methods: We used longitudinal data over the 2-year follow-up period from the At Home/ demonstration project that provided HF versus treatment as usual (TAU) to homeless adults with mental illness in five Canadian cities (N = 1,888). Read More

Prevalence of Exposure to Sexual Orientation Change Efforts and Associated Sociodemographic Characteristics and Psychosocial Health Outcomes among Canadian Sexual Minority Men.

Can J Psychiatry 2020 Jan 26:706743720902629. Epub 2020 Jan 26.

School of Public Health and Social Policy, University of Victoria, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

Objective: Sexual orientation change efforts (SOCE), or "conversion therapy," are pseudoscientific practices intended to suppress or deny sexual attraction to members of the same gender/sex. There are currently no data available to inform estimates of the prevalence of SOCE exposure in Canada. The objective of this study is therefore to describe the prevalence, social-demographic correlates, and health consequences of SOCE among Canadian sexual minority men. Read More

Can J Psychiatry 2020 Jan 23:706743719900465. Epub 2020 Jan 23.

Department of Psychiatry, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Objectives: To report on the perceived barriers surrounding the use of telepsychiatry for emergency assessments and our approach to overcoming those barriers to achieve successful implementation of a program to increase access to emergency psychiatric assessment in a Canadian urban setting.

Methods: We conducted a survey of emergency care staff to inform the implementation of an emergency telepsychiatry program in the urban setting of Winnipeg, Manitoba, where hospitals have variable on-site emergency psychiatric coverage. We analyzed survey responses for perceived barriers we would need to address in implementation. Read More
