Digital Approaches to Music-Making for People With Dementia in Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic: Current Practice and Recommendations.

Front Psychol 2021 23;12:625258. Epub 2021 Apr 23.

Institute of Mental Health, University of Nottingham, Nottingham, United Kingdom.

Before COVID-19, dementia singing groups and choirs flourished, providing activity, cognitive stimulation, and social support for thousands of people with dementia in the UK. Interactive music provides one of the most effective psychosocial interventions for people with dementia; it can allay agitation and promote wellbeing. Since COVID-19 has halted the delivery of in-person musical activities, it is important for the welfare of people with dementia and their carers to investigate what alternatives to live music making exist, how these alternatives are delivered and how their accessibility can be expanded.

Treatment provision for adults with ADHD during the COVID-19 pandemic: an exploratory study on patient and therapist experience with on-site sessions using face masks vs. telepsychiatric sessions.

BMC Psychiatry 2021 05 5;21(1):237. Epub 2021 May 5.

Department of Psychiatry, Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics, Psychiatric Hospital, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland.

Background: Maintaining the therapeutic care of psychiatric patients during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in Switzerland required changes to the way in which sessions were conducted, such as telepsychiatric interventions or using face masks during on-site sessions. While little is known about how face masks affect the therapeutic experience of patients and therapists, the effectiveness of telepsychiatry is well documented for several psychiatric disorders. However, research on the benefits of telepsychiatry in adult patients with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) remains scarce. Read More

Evaluation of a Novel e-Learning Program for Physiotherapists to Manage Knee Osteoarthritis via Telehealth: Qualitative Study Nested in the PEAK (Physiotherapy Exercise and Physical Activity for Knee Osteoarthritis) Randomized Controlled Trial.

J Med Internet Res 2021 04 30;23(4):e25872. Epub 2021 Apr 30.

Department of Physiotherapy, School of Health Sciences, Centre for Health, Exercise and Sports Medicine, The University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Australia.

Background: The delivery of physiotherapy via telehealth could provide more equitable access to services for patients. Videoconference-based telehealth has been shown to be an effective and acceptable mode of service delivery for exercise-based interventions for chronic knee pain; however, specific training in telehealth is required for physiotherapists to effectively and consistently deliver care using telehealth. The development and evaluation of training programs to upskill health care professionals in the management of osteoarthritis (OA) has also been identified as an important priority to improve OA care delivery.

Why students do not turn on their video cameras during online classes and an equitable and inclusive plan to encourage them to do so.

Ecol Evol 2021 Apr 10;11(8):3565-3576. Epub 2021 Jan 10.

Investigative Biology Teaching Laboratories Department of Neurobiology and Behavior Cornell University Ithaca NY USA.

Enrollment in courses taught remotely in higher education has been on the rise, with a recent surge in response to a global pandemic. While adapting this form of teaching, instructors familiar with traditional face-to-face methods are now met with a new set of challenges, including students not turning on their cameras during synchronous class meetings held via videoconferencing. After transitioning to emergency remote instruction in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our introductory biology course shifted all in-person laboratory sections into synchronous class meetings held via the Zoom videoconferencing program.

Changing the Status Quo: Developing a Virtual Sub-Internship in the Era of COVID-19.

J Surg Educ 2021 Mar 24. Epub 2021 Mar 24.

Department of Urology, Northwell Health, New York, New York.

Problem: Subinternships are integral to medical education as tools for teaching and assessing fourth-year medical students. Social distancing due to COVID-19 has precluded the ability to offer in-person subinternships - negatively impacting medical education and creating uncertainty surrounding the residency match. With no precedent for the development and implementation of virtual subinternships, the Society of Academic Urologists (SAU) developed an innovative and standardized curriculum for the Virtual Subinternship in Urology (vSIU).

Teleconferencing for Virtual Visiting Professors and Virtual Grand Rounds.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2021 05;147(5):872e-874e

From the Division of Plastic Surgery, Emory University School of Medicine.

Summary: The 2020 global pandemic related to the coronavirus has led to unprecedented interruptions in typical patient care and resident education. Teleconferencing software was deployed by many institutions to comply with quarantine and social-distancing regulations. To supplement the loss of clinical experience for trainees, the authors implemented a novel virtual-educational programming using virtual visiting professors and virtual grand rounds. Read More

A telehealth initiative to decrease no-show rates in a pediatric asthma mobile clinic.

J Pediatr Nurs 2021 Apr 19;59:143-150. Epub 2021 Apr 19.

University of Illinois at Chicago, 845 S Damen Ave, Chicago, IL 60612, United States of America. Electronic address:

Background/problem: Failed patient care appointments (no-shows) can lead to negative patient health outcomes and increased healthcare costs. There is evidence that telehealth is a safe, effective, and a cost-efficient option for those unable to attend in-person visits. No-show rates in pediatrics are unique due to reliance on caregivers to attend appointments. Read More

Videoconferencing Etiquette: Promoting Gender Equity During Virtual Meetings.

J Womens Health (Larchmt) 2021 04;30(4):460-465

Division of Hematology, Medical Oncology and Palliative Care, Department of Medicine, University of Wisconsin, Madison, Wisconsin, USA.

Considerable evidence has demonstrated that gender influences interactions during in-person meetings, most commonly, negatively impacting women and persons of color. Pervasive gender stereotypes about roles that were (and are) occupied by men and women lead to implicit assumptions about competency in said roles. For example, women may receive more negative verbal interruptions or nonverbal cues that undermine their authority as a leader, a stereotypically male-typed role. Read More

Cognitive Telerehabilitation with Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation Improves Cognitive and Emotional Functioning Following a Traumatic Brain Injury: A Case Study.

Arch Clin Neuropsychol 2021 Apr;36(3):442-453

Department of Neurology, NYU Grossman School of Medicine, New York 10017, USA.

Objective: Cognitive deficits following a traumatic brain injury (TBI) are a leading cause of disability in young adults and there is a critical need for novel approaches to improve cognitive outcomes in TBI survivors. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) paired with cognitive remediation has emerged as a viable, cost-effective, noninvasive approach for treating cognitive impairments in a wide variety of neurological conditions. Here, we report the first case study utilizing remotely supervised tDCS (RS-tDCS) protocol paired with cognitive remediation in a 29-year-old man with persisting cognitive and emotional sequelae following TBI.

Videoconference fatigue? Exploring changes in fatigue after videoconference meetings during COVID-19.

J Appl Psychol 2021 Mar;106(3):330-344

Strome College of Business, Old Dominion University.

In response to the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) global health pandemic, many employees transitioned to remote work, which included remote meetings. With this sudden shift, workers and the media began discussing videoconference fatigue, a potentially new phenomenon of feeling tired and exhausted attributed to a videoconference. In the present study, we examine the nature of videoconference fatigue, when this phenomenon occurs, and what videoconference characteristics are associated with fatigue using a mixed-methods approach.

Dermatol Online J 2021 Mar 15;27(3). Epub 2021 Mar 15.

Department of Dermatology, University of California Irvine, Irvine, CA.

One of the many consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic was the cancelation of the 2020 American Academy of Dermatology Annual Meeting. This conference historically features lectures from world-renowned experts in all areas of dermatology, thus providing an important educational experience for dermatology residents. We hypothesized that the cancellation of this meeting produced a substantial educational loss for dermatology residents. Read More
