Rural-Urban Differences in Physician Bias Toward Patients With Opioid Use Disorder
CONCLUSIONS: Given existing disparities in harm reduction and addiction treatment services in rural areas, increased physician bias in counties lacking these services suggests that rural patients with opioid use disorder face numerous challenges to finding effective treatment. Bias reduction interventions should target health care professionals in rural communities where such efforts may have the most pronounced impact on improving health care access.PMID:33622043 | DOI:10.1176/appi.ps.202000529 (Source: Psychiatric Services)

Social Determinants of Mental Health As Mediators and Moderators of the Mental Health Impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Authors: Bernardini F, Attademo L, Rotter M, Compton MT Abstract Contracting COVID-19, being exposed to it, or being affected by societal containment measures can have consequences that are themselves social determinants of health. Preexisting social determinants of health also drive the disproportionately high prevalence of COVID-19 infection and deaths among minority, marginalized, and other vulnerable populations. Thus, the social determinants of mental health act as both mediators and moderators of the pandemic's impacts, and like all social determinants, the effects of the pandemic are underpinned by public po...

Mental Disorders, Substance Use Disorders, and Psychotropic Medication Use Among Sudden-Death Victims.

Recognizing and Seizing the Opportunities That Value-Based Payment Models Offer Behavioral Health Care.
Authors: Hyatt AS, Tepper MC, O'Brien CJ Abstract The rapid rise of value-based payment (VBP) models presents both new opportunities and challenges for behavioral health providers, especially in health systems that serve low-income and marginalized communities. This column discusses the experience of a community health care system as an early adopter of VBP in order to demonstrate both the constraints and possibilities health systems face when implementing VBP models. This example and the lessons drawn from it can assist other health systems seeking to implement these models. PMID: 33593103 [PubMed - as supplie...

A State Financial Incentive Policy to Improve Emergency Department Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder: A Qualitative Study.
CONCLUSIONS: A financial incentive policy encouraged hospitals to enact rapid system and practice changes to support treatment for opioid use disorder, although challenges remained in implementing evidence-based treatment-specifically, initiation of buprenorphine-for patients visiting the ED. Analysis of treatment outcomes is needed to further evaluate this policy initiative, but new delivery and payment models may improve systems to treat patients who have an opioid use disorder.

A Legal Right to Clozapine Therapy for Incarcerated Individuals With Treatment-Resistant Schizophrenia.
Authors: Zarzar TR, Williams JB, Pruette ME, Sheitman BB Abstract People with serious mental illnesses increasingly are being treated in jails and prisons, and during incarceration are afforded a constitutional right to medical care. This right pertains to both general medical and mental illnesses and both acute and chronic conditions. However, incarcerated patients with treatment-resistant schizophrenia (TRS) often are not offered clozapine, the only medication for this debilitating illness approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. In this column, the authors argue that incarcerated individuals with TRS h...

Shared Risk Taking: Shared Decision Making in Serious Mental Illness.
Authors: Zisman-Ilani Y, Lysaker PH, Hasson-Ohayon I Abstract Shared decision making (SDM) is an interpersonal health communication model that is underutilized with people with serious mental illness. Although research has emphasized the role of patient capacity-, clinician-, and system-related barriers in SDM underutilization, the risk taking that affects SDM with people with mental illness is less often discussed. This Open Forum presents a reconceptualization of SDM as a process of shared risk taking that often occurs during different phases of illness management and recovery. The concepts of intersubjectivity, ...

Authors: Pickover A, Lowell A, Lazarov A, Lopez-Yianilos A, Sanchez-Lacay A, Ryba M, Such S, Arnon S, Amsalem D, Neria Y, Markowitz JC Abstract OBJECTIVE: Military service members and veterans have high rates of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), as do military family members. Exposure-based, cognitive-behavioral approaches have received ample research, but other PTSD therapies require further empirical attention. Interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) targets affective awareness, life circumstances, and social support. IPT has shown efficacy for civilians with PTSD but awaits rigorous testing among military personne...

However, service workers-including water, sanitation, and hygiene staff; food service workers; and countless others-are not being appropriately supported for their heroic efforts. This Open Forum describes the demographic characteristics of this neglected population, explores the role of structural racism in the lack of support interventions, examines the relationship between social determinants of health ...
