Rationale and protocol for a randomized waitlist controlled trial of videoconference delivered cognitive behaviour therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) to improve perceived cognitive impairment (PCI) among cancer survivors.

Contemp Clin Trials 2021 Apr 12;103:106322. Epub 2021 Feb 12.

Discipline of Oncology, Faculty of Medicine, Memorial University, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.

Perceived cognitive impairment (PCI) and sleep disturbances (such as insomnia) are commonly reported barriers preventing cancer survivors from resuming normal functioning. Cognitive-behaviour therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) is the treatment of choice for insomnia among cancer survivors. Literature suggests that treatment with CBT-I may lead to an improvement in PCI, but this needs to be tested in a sample of patients with PCI at study entry with cognitive impairments as the primary study outcome.

COVID-19: Preliminary Data on the Impact of Social Distancing on Loneliness and Mental Health.

Katie Lewis

J Psychiatr Pract 2020 09;26(5):400-404

LEWIS: Guest Columnist: is a research psychologist at the Austen Riggs Center in Stockbridge, MA.

The COVID-19 pandemic and its need for social distancing as a response have the potential to increase the experience of loneliness in the population, with an associated increase in symptoms of mental disorders. As the world has largely adapted to remote platforms for employment, socializing, and health service delivery, the degree to which virtual opportunities for social engagement may offset the impact of limited in-person interactions on mental health functioning is unknown. This column offers preliminary data from an ongoing experience sampling study of the prevalence, course, and impact of loneliness on mental health in a community adult sample living under social distancing requirements during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Trials 2018 Mar 27;19(1):196. Epub 2018 Mar 27.

Sandra Eskenazi Center for Brain Care Innovation, Eskenazi Hospital, Indianapolis, IN, USA.

Background: Delirium affects nearly 70% of older adults hospitalized in the intensive care unit (ICU), and many of those will be left with persistent cognitive impairment or dementia.

Internet-Based Group Intervention for Ovarian Cancer Survivors: Feasibility and Preliminary Results.

JMIR Cancer 2018 Jan 15;4(1):e1. Epub 2018 Jan 15.

Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences, University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA, United States.

Background: Development of psychosocial group interventions for ovarian cancer survivors has been limited. Drawing from elements of cognitive-behavioral stress management (CBSM), mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), we developed and conducted preliminary testing of an Internet-based group intervention tailored specifically to meet the needs of ovarian cancer survivors. The Internet-based platform facilitated home delivery of the psychosocial intervention to a group of cancer survivors for whom attending face-to-face programs could be difficult given their physical limitations and the small number of ovarian cancer survivors at any one treatment site.

Modern technology to support carers of care recipients with dementia or functional mental illness: promising progress, but a long road ahead.

Int Psychogeriatr 2017 12;29(12):1933-1935

Department of Psychiatry,Technische Universität München,Munich,Germany.

There is no doubt that family carers who look after a family member with dementia or with a functional mental illness fulfill an important role, not only for their loved one, but also for the health and aged care systems of the countries they live in. Due to increasing life expectancy, but also improved healthcare the number of family carers supporting older care recipients with functional mental illness or dementia is on the rise. While the carer role often can offer rewarding experiences caregivers are at increased risk of stress, depression, sleep problems, and often experience poor health outcomes with increased morbidity and mortality (Oyebode, 2003).
