Archiv für Leipziger Psychiatriegeschichte, Klinik und Poliklinik für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie, Universität Leipzig.

This paper is the first to present and assess material gathered on a psychiatrist and psychotherapist by East German Intelligence Service Stasi, officially referred to as Ministry of National Security (Ministerium für Staatssicherheit, MfS), over the course of several decades.We have analysed all files on professor of psychiatry Dietfried Müller-Hegemann (1910-1989) preserved in the authority now responsible for preserving, studying and making all files of the former East German Secret Service accessible (BStU). The material gained from different authorities within the MfS and on a variety of topics showed significant differences in relevance, in terms of both their quality and their amount. Read More

There is a broad variety of digital applications available that may enhance psychotherapeutic treatment and potentially lead to enhanced care of mentally ill patients, yet these applications cannot replace psychotherapeutic treatment. Among them are videoconferencing technologies, which allow psychotherapists and their patients to communicate over long distances. Beside this, internet-based treatment programs and health-apps are available for prevention and treatment of mental disorders. Read More

Zentrum für Neurologie, Psychiatrie, Psychotherapie, Alexianer St. Joseph Krankenhaus, Berlin.

Numerous self-management interventions have proven to be efficacious in the treatment of a number of mental disorders in randomized trials. However, these interventions have not yet reached clinical routine everywhere. Among other things, this is due to the fact that, in addition to the evidence-based interventions, other interventions are offered that have never been scientifically investigated, and in some cases, do not even rely on evidence-based methods of psychotherapy.

Fortschr Neurol Psychiatr 2019 Mar 19;87(3):160-164. Epub 2019 Mar 19.

Mental disorders are common and impairing for both affected individuals and society. Despite the great burden of mental disorders and a comparably well-developed mental health care system in Germany, mental disorders are still treated insufficiently. Additionally, access barriers such as long waiting times for outpatient treatment impede utilization of mental health care services. Read More

Zentrum für Psychiatrie Südwürttemberg, Klinik für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie I, Universität Ulm.

In the case of alternative psychosis and forced normalization, the patient alternates between periods of clinically manifest seizures and normal behavior, and other periods of seizure freedom (or significant seizure reduction) accompanied by psychosis or behavioral disturbances. Unlike the clinically defined alternative psychosis, forced normalization is based on EEG findings. In clinical practice and in the literature, both terms are mostly used synonymously, and they also describe the same clinical pictures. Read More

In November 2016, the German Federal Diet adopted an amendment to the German Medicinal Products Act (Arzneimittelgesetz), which permits non-therapeutic biomedical research on incompetent adults under a number of strict conditions. One of these conditions is that the potential research participant has declared her wish to participate in biomedical research in a valid research advance directive. Before completing the research advance directive, the potential research participant must be informed about the circumstances of research participation. Read More

During the past decades, important progress was made in the treatment of patients with mental disorders. Nevertheless, the guideline-based treatment still represents a significant challenge that must take into account novel diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities as well as recent social development and the economic framework. Therefore, there is a need for further improvement of care in inpatient, day-care and outpatient hospital units. Read More

Modern psychiatry needs to implement novel mental health care systems in order to address recent developments in diagnostics and treatment of psychiatric patients. In this context, it is necessary to take into account recent ethical and certain legal aspects which explicitly seek to reduce coercive treatment. The so-called "track-unit" is a promising strategy in order to achieve these goals. Read More

[Cognitive deficits associated with electroconvulsive therapy for depression: moderating factors and neuropsychological tests].

Fortschr Neurol Psychiatr 2018 11 17;86(11):690-698. Epub 2019 Jan 17.

Klinik und Poliklinik für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie Heinrich-Heine-Universität, Medizinische Fakultät, Düsseldorf.

Due to the efficacy of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) in the guideline-based treatment of therapy-resistant depressive episodes and the clinical significance of cognitive impairments, it is necessary to optimize the management of potential side effects. As cognitive side effects of the treatment combined with impairments resulting from the depression may lead to a reduction in the ability to function in social contexts and reduce subjective wellbeing, comprehensive information about and monitoring of potential side effects is essential. In this review we present the clinical relevance and measurement of cognitive side effects that may occur during electroconvulsive therapy. Read More

[Work-related medical rehabilitation (WMR) in Neurology requires individualised rehabilitant identification].

Fortschr Neurol Psychiatr 2019 Feb 7;87(2):92-102. Epub 2019 Jan 7.

Dr. Becker Neurozentrum Niedersachsen Bad Essen.

To increase the rate of successful return-to-work (RTW) after acute or chronic diseases, the German Pension Insurance established the concept of work-related medical rehabilitation (WMR) as a strategic advancement of conventional medical rehabilitation. Although in some indications, the WMR is demonstrably superior to conventional medical rehabilitation in terms of occupational reintegration, this has not yet been proven for neurology so far. Current studies on neurological WMR point to the complexity of clinical anamnestic characteristics of the target group, which makes it difficult to define severe restrictions of work ability (SRWA) as a prerequisite for access to the neurological WMR.

[Subjective memory impairments in early detection of dementia: Relation to acceptability of lumbar puncture in memory clinic patients].

Fortschr Neurol Psychiatr 2018 Dec 17. Epub 2018 Dec 17.

Vitos Klinikum Gießen-Marburg, Vitos Klinik für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie Gießen; Fachbereich Medizin, Philipps-Universität Marburg.

Background: In memory clinics, biomarker-based diagnostic tools for early detection and differential diagnosis of dementia are increasingly important, even if their acceptance by patients is relatively low.

Objective: The aim of study was to examine whether sociodemographic and clinical features of memory clinic patients are associated with acceptance of lumbar puncture (LP). Of particular interest was the patients' self-perception of memory decline (subjective memory impairment, SMI) accompanied by related concerns that might affect decision to consent to LP. Read More

Consideration of quality of life has developed into an important concept of a patient-oriented medicine in the last 50 years.

Today, the quality of life as a patient-reported endpoint is also an integral part of the early benefit assessment under the German Drug Market Reorganization Act. Read More
