The fear of what goes up must come down: A case report of vulnerable narcissism.

Asian J Psychiatr 2020 May 17;54:102117. Epub 2020 May 17.

Department of Psychiatry, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Universiti Putra Malaysia, Serdang, Selangor 43400, Malaysia. Electronic address:

Pathological narcissism or narcissistic personality disorder is commonly characterized by an exaggerated sense of self-importance, condescending attitude, need for excessive admiration, diminished empathy and exploitativeness. In contrast to these overt attributes, there is a different presentation of pathological narcissism which is underrecognized, as one's preoccupation with hypervigilant, self-effacement and proneness to shame in the context of covert grandiose fantasies. This report illustrates a patient who had this subtype of vulnerable narcissism, and how his defence had been activated to preserve own self agency during a session with the doctor by revealing his paraphilic fantasy.

Optimizing Patient Experience in the Emergency Department.

Emerg Med Clin North Am 2020 Aug 10;38(3):705-713. Epub 2020 Jun 10.

Department of Emergency Medicine, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, 55 Fruit Street, Founders 850, Boston, MA 02114, USA.

Emergency department (ED) patient experience is a growing area of focus for leaders in the ED and throughout health care. While many factors intrinsic to the ED care environment add to the challenge of providing patients with an excellent experience, doing so holds many benefits, including improved patient compliance and health outcomes, improved workplace satisfaction and reduced provider and staff burnout, decreased malpractice risk, and increased revenue. Although wait time is a major driver of patient experience, provider and staff communication are critically important and excellent communication and perceived empathy may mitigate long waits, overcrowded environments, and other challenges.

Heliyon 2020 Jun 23;6(6):e04145. Epub 2020 Jun 23.

GET Lab, Department of Multimedia and Graphic Arts, Cyprus University of Technology, Limassol, Cyprus.

The immense capabilities provided by virtual reality for enhancing empathy and altering social behaviors, make it possible to use virtual reality for the promotion of the understanding between individuals. A social issue that needs to be addressed is the discrimination and marginalization of people with Asperger's syndrome (AS) from the working force, stemming from the lack of recognition and justification of their oddities. In this paper, the effectiveness of a virtual reality simulation, raising awareness on this specific issue, is evaluated. Read More

The role of children in transmission of SARS-CoV-2: A rapid review.

J Glob Health 2020 Jun;10(1):011101

Centre for Global Health, Usher Institute, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK.

Background: Understanding the role of children in the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 is urgently required given its policy implications in relation to the reopening of schools and intergenerational contacts.

Methods: We conducted a rapid review of studies that investigated the role of children in the transmission of SARS-CoV-2. We synthesized evidence for four categories: 1) studies reporting documented cases of SARS-CoV-2 transmission by infected children; 2) studies presenting indirect evidence on the potential of SARS-CoV-2 transmission by (both symptomatic and asymptomatic) children; 3) studies reporting cluster outbreaks of COVID-19 in schools; 4) studies estimating the proportions of children infected by SARS-CoV-2, and reported results narratively.

BMC Health Serv Res 2020 Jul 1;20(1):605. Epub 2020 Jul 1.

Department of Public Health and Community Medicine, Institute of Medicine, The Sahlgrenska Academy at University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg, Sweden.

Background: Mental healthcare is an important component in societies' response to mental health problems. Although the World Health Organization highlights availability, accessibility, acceptability and quality of healthcare as important cornerstones, many Europeans lack access to mental healthcare of high quality. Qualitative studies exploring mental healthcare from the perspective of people with lived experiences would add to previous research and knowledge by enabling in-depth understanding of mental healthcare users, which may be of significance for the development of mental healthcare.

BMC Health Serv Res 2020 Jul 1;20(1):603. Epub 2020 Jul 1.

Faculty of Health Sciences, Department of Nursing and Health Promotion, Oslo Metropolitan University, P.O. Box 4, St. Olavs plass, N-0130, Oslo, Norway.

The hidden nature of family caregiving means that the circumstances of carers, their views and their dilemmas related to future care are largely invisible. In this study, we explored female Pakistani carers' views of future care and healthcare accessibility for their older relatives in Norway. Read More
