Telemedicine for Improved Delivery of Psychosocial Treatments for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

2014-08-27 03:12:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The objective of the proposed study is to conduct a systematic comparison of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) outcomes for veterans receiving exposure therapy via telemedicine versus in-person care. The primary aim is to determine feasibility: whether telemedicine can be used as a tool to extend effective, specialized mental health services, such as Prolonged Exposure therapy (PE; a therapy designed to help clients face fears related to a traumatic event), to veterans with limited access to care. A secondary aim is to determine if therapy delivered by telemedicine affects the quality of care in terms of clinical outcomes and the quality of patient-therapist interaction. A tertiary aim is to examine whether results from neuropsychological testing predict treatment outcomes.

Exposure for 48 hours or more to warm water causes tropical immersion foot or warm-water immersion foot common in Vietnam where troops were exposed to prolonged or repeated wading in paddy fields or streams.
