Audio Recording for Independent Confirmation of Clinical Assessments in Generalized Anxiety Disorder
Conclusion. The audio-digital recording method provides a useful second opinion that can affirm the need for a different treatment intervention in these anxious patients. A second live assessment would have required additional clinic time and added patient burden. The audio-digital recording method is less burdensome than live second opinion assessments and might have utility in both research and clinical practice settings. Keywords: Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), anxiolytic medications, anxious symptoms, audio-digital recording, dual review, second opinions Anxiety symptoms are prevalent in most populations where people experience the stress of modern life. A cluster of anxiety symptoms becomes an anxiety disorder when the symptoms are difficult to control, cause significant distress for the person, and impact the ability to function.1,2 It has been reported that patients who meet diagnostic criteria for generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) might also have substantial economic and social burden as a consequence of the disorder.3–7 There are several effective treatments for GAD, including psychotropic medications, complementary and alternative medicines, psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and/or other nonpharmacological strategies that can be given to address troubling and/or disruptive anxiety symptoms.6–10 The use of psychotropic medications for treating anxiety symptoms, including approved antidepressants, is sometimes challenged because other...

Authors: Marín-Sánchez A Abstract The basic clinical characteristics of the first 100 fatal cases from COVID-19 in Colombia were analyzed based on reports from the National Institute of Health (INS) since the beginning of the pandemic. Since the INS records do not include clinical variables of comorbidity in the total number of cases reported as positive, but only in patients with fatal outcome, comorbidities, age and sex available in the daily INS reports were reviewed. Their frequency was identified and mortality risk behavior for the analyzed variables was established and compared with the behavior...
CONCLUSION: The healthcare providers and policymakers need to be involved in recognising iTaukei community culture and appreciate traditional methods to promote equitable community participation in decision-making for health promotion. SO WHAT?: Community-wide lifestyle interventions, conceptual approaches based on communal perceptions of the problem at hand can also be the basis for future research on identifying socio-cultural factors, for example, the community and family support that can help shape behaviours.

CONCLUSION: This study contributes new insights and depth of understanding about how the empowerment programme can strengthen the process of individual capacity in an effort to mobilise social change for the betterment of the whole community, particularly among indigenous Pasifika population groups. SO WHAT?: Developing empowerment principles will enable others to consider 'how apply' empowerment more practically when working with young people, and not use it flippantly with no real action-oriented outcome.

Authors: Ng QX, De Deyn MLZQ, Loke W, Yeo WS Abstract Yemen has been faced with the worst cholera epidemic of modern times, with more than 1 million suspected cases and 3000 deaths at the time of writing. This problem is largely due to the longstanding civil war between pro-government forces and the Houthi armed movement, which has severely damaged already vulnerable sanitation and healthcare facilities and systems in the country. It is further compounded by a dire lack of basic amenities, chronic malnutrition, and unfavourable weather conditions. Another contributory component may be aerial transfer by cholera-inf...
Authors: Valeriani G, Vukovic IS, Mollica R Abstract Since its early stages, the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has posed immense challenges in meeting the public health and healthcare and social care needs of migrants. In line with other reports from United Kingdom and United States, data from Sweden's health authority show that migrants have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19. Following the World Health Organization's statements, as well as the European Public Health Association's call for action, several centres in Sweden's most populated areas have activated tools to implement national p...
