Recent research has focused on examining brief interventions for reducing self-harm, such as the volitional help sheet (VHS). The VHS is a theory-based psychological intervention. Two previous studies applying this tool for reducing self-harm repetition showed inconsistent results; one showed reduced subsequent self-reported suicidal ideation and behavior in patients presenting to hospital for self-harm, whilst the other showed no effect on the number of patients who re-present...
The goal of the study is to test the efficacy of brief physician advice in reducing the frequency of high risk drinking and alcohol-related harm in a population of university students seeking routine care at UBC Student Health Service. It is hypothesized that receiving the intervention will reduce the amount of alcohol consumed and the incidence of alcohol-related harm among the students in the intervention group, as compared to the control group.
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficiency of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) in treatment of adolescents with deliberate self harm compared to treatment-as-usual (TAU). 150 patients in the age of 12-18 yrs old will be included in the study. The main inclusion criterion is repetitive deliberate self-harm. The patients will receive 16 weeks treatment in outpatient clinics in Oslo, after having been randomized to DBT or TAU. They will be assessed on five different ...
This randomized controlled trial (RCT) evaluates whether HIV self-testing (HIVST) facilitates sexual harm reduction and reduces HIV transmission among HIV-negative MSM in China.The intervention group will be offered HIVST kits plus harm reduction education, and followed 9 month, while the control group will receive harm reduction educational material only.
HALT is a phase II, randomised multi-centre study with integrated seamless continuation to phase III trial following acceptable safety and feasibility assessment. HALT aims to recruit 110 patients with mutation positive advanced NSCLC with oligoprogressive disease (OPD) following initial response to a Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor (TKI).
Deliberate Self-Harm (DSH) among adolescents is a serious behavioral problem associated with significant injury, impaired functioning, reduced quality of life, and high rates of psychiatric hospitalizations. While DSH has not been shown to have a direct link to suicide attempts themselves, there is a clear link between individuals who engage in DSH and overall rates of suicide. There is currently no medication treatment approved by the FDA for the treatment of DSH. The...
We conducted a pre-post naturalistic study regarding changes observed associated with a 15-week course of an adapted form of dialectical behaviour therapy for adolescents. We measured frequency of self-harm prior to treatment and after treatment using the Self-Injurious Thoughts and Behaviors Interview. We also measured changes using the Suicide Ideation Questionnaire, Life Problems Inventory, Resiliency Scale for Children and Adolescents.
Many infertile patients have a decreased chance of becoming pregnant when using in vitro fertilization (IVF). For these patients, many different treatments are available, but none of them have been shown to be better than the others. We are testing which of three different treatments are better than the others. Patients who are expected to have a decreased response to ovarian stimulation will be randomized to either a microflare protocol, an antagonist protocol, or a demi-ha...
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) using the Halt System for the treatment of patients with symptomatic uterine fibroids.
Self-harm has substantial personal impacts as well as costs on the NHS. Around 13-17% of young people report experiences of self-harm. In Cambridgeshire, this is a significant issue with the number of admissions to hospital for self-harm in young people being higher than the UK average. Treating underlying mental illness can lead to a reduction in self-harm, but these are long interventions for complex disorders and many people who self-harm are not under treatment for mental i...
The study evaluates the effect of Dialectic Behavior Therapy Skills System (DBT-SS) in individuals with Intelligence Quotient 65-85 and recurrent self-harm. The study is primarily descriptive with 6 cases followed by repeated measurements (weekly; time series analysis). Primary outcome measure is frequency and severity of self-harming behavior, reported weekly 4 weeks before the start of the intervention, throughout the intervention and 12 weeks after the intervention has stopp...
This study is designed to refine and test the efficacy of a computer assisted culturally informed and flexible/adaptive intervention for Latino adolescents for whom self-harm behaviors are a health disparity—specifically, Latinas and sexual/gender minority youth.
Women prisoners are more likely to commit suicide or self-harm than women in the community or male prisoners. Healthcare services have improved how they manage self-harm in the community and prisons. However, there has been little focus on the recovery of people with self-harm scars. Medical skin camouflage (MSC) is a British National Formulary-listed topical cream designed to cover skin conditions. Research on MSC has focused on its use with non-self-harm marks e.g. burns. ...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the long-term efficacy of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) in treatment of adolescents with deliberate self harm compared to enhanced usual care (EUC). This study follows-up 80 patients in the ages of 12-18 yrs who have been included in an RCT of DBT-A vs EUC. The main inclusion criterion for this study was repetitive self-harm behaviour. The patients were randomly allocated to receive 16 weeks of outpatient DBT or EUC in child and adol...
This study evaluates the effectiveness of a smartphone-assisted problem-solving therapy (PST) service across Emergency Departments in Ontario. A total of 25 Emergency Departments have been randomized to either usual care or the smartphone-assisted PST service intervention. The main cluster randomized controlled trial will use data collected from the Institute of Clinical Evaluative Sciences (ICES) to assess the impact of this service on suicides and re-presentations to hospital...

A total of 25 Emergency Departments have been randomized to either usual care or the smartphone-assisted PST service intervention. The cohort component of this study will use data collected from consenting participants who presented to an intervention site's Emergency Department for self-harm. This data will be gathered over the course o...
The HALT-C Trial is a National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases sponsored, randomized clinical trial of long-term use of Peginterferon alfa-2a (pegylated interferon) in patients who failed to respond to prior interferon treatment. All patients who enter the trial will be treated for 6 months with Peginterferon alfa-2a and Ribavirin. Patients who respond to this 6 month treatment will continue to be treated for an additional 6 months. Patients who d...
Wearing white coat during hospital rounds has been associated with increased risk of colonization and transmission of resistant pathogens. On the other hand, studies have shown that physicians' attire affects patients' confidence in their physician and the patient-physician relationship. The results of these studies were highly dependent on the practice setting, with no data in postpartum patients. The objective is to test the hypothesis that wearing a white coat during physic...
The purpose of this study is to examine the feasibility of using e-cigarettes as a method for harm reduction and the effects of providing e-cigarettes (or placebo e-cigarettes) on smoking outcomes. Participants will be randomized to receive either e-cigarettes with nicotine cartridges or e-cigarettes with placebo cartridges, and followed for 3 weeks.
Study Aims/Objectives: This projects' Primary Aim is development of a Condensed DBT Stepped Care Model tailored to the unique requirements of students meeting sub-clinical diagnostic criteria for BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder) with its associated high rate of self-harm and suicide.
The purpose of the study is to test a standardized version of brief admission (BA) through randomized controlled trial (RCT). The main objective is to evaluate if BA can serve as a crisis management model for individuals with recurrent self-harm, including suicide attempts and at least three symptoms of Borderline Personality disorder. Participants will be allocated to BA + Treatment as Usual (TAU) or TAU.
This study is being done to determine 1) whether drugs to treat cisplatin-related nausea can influence harm to the kidneys, 2) whether cisplatin levels in the body can influence the risk of harm to the kidneys, and 3) whether a person's genetic make-up can increase or decrease the likelihood of kidney injury due to cisplatin therapy.
Patient transfer between sites of care is regular practice during an episode of care in our current health care system. Yet inter-site transfer is associated with lapses in care quality that adversely affect patient outcomes. A common iatrogenic harm precipitated at the time of transfer is harm from drug prescribing, or adverse drug events (ADEs). In this study we will evaluate a medication reconciliation tool developed to help providers make effective prescribing decisions ...
To investigate how discussions surrounding Do Not Attempt Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (DNACPR) decisions have changed following the Tracey judgement and how "harm" is being defined by clinicians working within specialist palliative care in a hospice setting.
Keratoconus is a corneal ectatic disease responsible for a loss of visual acuity when the steepening increases. Corneal collagen crosslinking (CXL) is a procedure that appears to halt or slow down the progression and avoid the visual impairment. However, such a technique requires the epithelium debridement, wich can be responsible for severs complications. This study evaluate the safety and efficacy of transepithelial corneal crosslinking with oxygen to halt or slow down the p...
