The purpose of the current study was to evaluate short- and long-term effects of group reminiscence on agitated symptoms and quality of life (QOL) for individuals with dementia. A quasi-experimental study using a repeated-measures design was conducted in 43 residents with dementia. Participants received a 50-minute group reminiscence therapy session once per week for 10 weeks. Outcomes were measured 1 week before, 1 week after, and at 3 months postintervention. Results showed no significant difference on the overall agitated behavior of participants...

A cross-sectional descriptive correlation study was performed to investigate the risk of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) among 300 family caregivers of individuals with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder and examine the relationship between perceived social support and risk of PTSD. The Arabic version of the PTSD Checklist for DSM-5 (APCL-5) was used to investigate risk of PTSD; the Arabic version of the Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support was used to measure perceived social support. Mean score of the APCL-5 was 46...

The current article describes a review of U.S. states and the District of Columbia boards of nursing pre-licensure applications, which were collected, summarized, and evaluated to assess compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA). Less than one half (n = 21) of RN licensing boards do not ask questions about mental illness on pre-licensure applications. Of the 30 boards that ask questions about mental illness, eight focus on current disability, which is legal under the ADA. The remaining 22 boards ask non-ADA-compliant questions by targeting specific diagnoses, focusing on historical data in the absence of current impairment, and/or requiring a prediction of future impairment...

Individuals with serious mental illness transitioning from state psychiatric hospitals to community living need specialized skills to enter community housing programs. There are few examples of best practice hospital group programs to improve community living skills. To address this gap, the authors developed a community skills training and discharge readiness program, Tools for Moving On (TFMO), adapted from materials from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Permanent Supportive Housing: Tools for Tenants toolkit...

Valerie Danesh, Donna Rolin, Scott V Hudson, Sean White
The feasibility of integrating remote presence technology within a simulation scenario for psychiatric-mental health nursing (PMHN) students to develop telehealth competencies was evaluated. A wireless, audiovisual robot from Double® Robotics, maneuverable by smartphone or tablet computer, was used to simulate the facilitation of students' patient assessment and treatment decisions from a distant location for 32 weeks (total hours of robotic simulation = 32). Qualitative data were collected to assess student and faculty satisfaction, as well as for feasibility evaluations...

An educational support group, The Lighten Your Life Program, was developed for adult patients who self-reported depressive symptoms and had one or more comorbid chronic pain condition. Using a mixed methods, pilot design, the purpose of the current study was to test the feasibility of The Lighten Your Life Program, which combined depression education with in-person group support every 2 weeks. The Lighten Your Life Program also encouraged the use of Pacifica, a mobile application (app), as a self-management tool...

Patients admitted to psychiatric acute care settings benefit from interactions and caring relationships with hospital staff. The current study describes the association between patients' perceptions of nurse caring and their satisfaction with care at an inpatient psychiatric-mental health unit. The relationship between patients' perceptions of nurse caring and two measures of satisfaction with care were explored. A convenience sample of patients (N = 169) completed the Caring Behaviors Inventory-16 and Client Satisfaction Survey...

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by deficits in social interactions and communication and repetitive stereotypical behaviors. Early recognition and treatment are critical to the treatment gains and prognosis of this disorder in children and adolescents. However, there can be several limitations to initiating a timely intervention, including financial constraints, limited resources, lack of trained providers, and lack of access to health care. In this context, non-specialist mediated interventions for ASD can provide an alternative approach to address the treatment gaps and lack of resources...

Tardive dyskinesia (TD), the choreoathetoid movements of fingers, arms, legs, and trunk and irregular stereotypical movements of the mouth, face, and tongue, has been the scourge of antipsychotic medications since the approval of chlorpromazine. TD tends to occur late in treatment and sometimes remains after discontinuation of the antipsychotic medication. With the recent approval of two medications, valbenazine (Ingrezza® ) and deutetrabenazine (Austedo® ), there are now treatments for this disfiguring consequence of dopamine-blocking medications...

#14
Barbara J Limandri
Pharmacogenetic testing to aid in making decisions about prescribing medications was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2005 and gradually became a common practice. However, an innovation that was thought to help individualize prescribing psychotropic medications with fewer trials and errors soon became a disappointment to clinicians. Current pharmacogenetic testing assesses how the liver metabolizes drugs through the cytochrome p 450 system; however, much of the variability in how a drug affects an individual also relies on the pharmacodynamics of the drug (i...

Julie Worley
Teenagers' use of cannabis is a significant problem due to the known detrimental effects it has on the developing brain. Cannabis use in the teenage years is associated with a disruption to the brain's reward system, impaired memory and cognition, and the potential for structural brain changes. Smoking cannabis can have a negative impact on the pulmonary system because it is a respiratory irritant. Teenagers are increasingly using electronic cigarettes, or vaping, to administer cannabis, which delivers a higher concentration of its psychoactive properties...

#19
Barbara J Limandri
Long-acting injectable (LAI) antipsychotic medications have been around since the 1960s as alternatives to oral formulations to improve medication adherence. LAIs are similar enough to their corresponding oral formulations to be used interchangeably and have convincing evidence of improving consistency in pharmacotherapy that reduces the rates of relapse and frequency of hospitalization for individuals with psychosis. So why are they not used as often? The current article presents an argument to initiate LAIs early in treatment as a way of establishing consistency in treatment, thereby, potentially improving client outcomes...
