By now, we all know the drill: Maintain physical distance. Wear a mask. Wash your hands. Avoid people who are sick and stay away from others if you are sick. While these measures may seem simple enough, they are not easy to keep up month after month. Yet they are likely to be with us for a while. But what about those who cannot comply? Certain conditions can make the standard measures to stay safe during the pandemic seem impossible. At the same time, some of those likely to have the most trouble following the guidelines — such as older people with dementia — are at higher risk for illness and death if they do ...

CONCLUSIONS: Not all of the seven included trials analysed the effects of the interventions on our primary outcomes (mood and personal well-being, coping strategies and QoL). Three trials were conducted in the 1970s and 1980s using techniques of auto-hypnosis or relaxation and, in accordance with the needs and therapeutic possibilities of the time, they focused on secondary outcomes, e.g. frequency of bleeding (physical health) and adherence to the intervention. The four newer trials assessed psycho-educational interventions all mediated by the use of technologies (DVD or computer) and often created according to age needs ...

DiscussioniCBT might implicate novel ways to increase the access to evidence-based interventions in this specific population. The distinct focus on effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of youthCOACHCD in patients with chronic somatic conditions, as well as intervention safety, will most likely provide important new insights in the field of paediatric e-mental health. A particular strength of the present study is its implementation directly into routine collaborative health care. As such, this study will provide important insights for health care policy and stakeholders and indicate how iCBT can be integrated into existing ...

ConclusionThe patients considered annual check-ups for mental health issues important. Although the screening results are reassuring, the group is heterogenic and younger individuals should be given extra attention. Follow-up over longer time will provide more robust data.

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a complex, chronic disease in which many adults with CF report suffering from persistent physical and psychological concerns, such as dyspnea, fatigue, anxiety, and depression [1 –6]. These individuals also cope with immense, life-long treatment burden and are required to navigate decisions around complex and high-risk treatments from a young age [7]. These factors significantly impair quality of life (QoL) of individuals with CF [1–5,7]. Palliative care is an overall ap proach to care, and a clinical specialty, that has been shown in a recent meta-analysis to improve important patient-c...

Background: Chronic respiratory diseases contribute to the development of anxiety and depression. In bronchiectasis (BE), it is unclear whether these comorbidities are related to general or disease-related quality of life (HRQoL) or symptoms.Aims: To evaluate the correlation between anxiety and depression and QoL in patients with BE.Methods: 26 subjects with non-cystic fibrosis BE of both sexes, 56±16 years, classified by the Bronchiectasis Severity Index (BSI), answered to the Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE), Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS), Medical Outcomes Study 36 – Item Short – Form Health ...

Conclusions: Although both instruments are specific for bronchiectasis, the results suggest that the severity of the disease-related neither with the perception of anxiety and depression, nor with the quality of life assessed by QoLB.
