BACKGROUND: People with serious mental illness (SMI) are at elevated risk of HIV infection, but do not receive HIV tests regularly. Inpatient psychiatric admissions provide opportunities for HIV testing. OBJECTIVE: This study retrospectively examined the impact of three sequential interventions designed to increase HIV testing on an acute inpatient psychiatry service: (1) advocacy by an administrative champion, (2) an on-site HIV counselor, and (3) a clinician championing HIV testing...

BACKGROUND: Little is known about how emotion recognition may be modified in individuals prone to elicit disgust. OBJECTIVE: We sought to determine if subjects with total laryngectomy would present a modified recognition of facial expressions of disgust. METHODS: A total of 29 patients presenting with a history of advanced-stage laryngeal cancer were recruited, 17 being surgically treated (total laryngectomy) and 12 treated with chemoradiation therapy only...

#7
Erick H Cheung, Jonathan Heldt, Thomas Strouse, Paul Schneider
BACKGROUND: Medically hospitalized patients who lack decisional capacity may request, demand, or attempt to leave the hospital despite grave risk to themselves. The treating physician in this scenario must determine how to safeguard such patients, including whether to attempt to keep them in the hospital. However, in many jurisdictions, there are no laws that address this matter directly. In this absence, psychiatrists are often called upon to issue an involuntary psychiatric hold (civil commitment) to keep the patient from leaving...

BACKGROUND: Obesity during pregnancy is the most common high-risk obstetric condition, resulting in increased rates of adverse maternal and neonatal outcomes. Individuals with psychiatric disorders have a higher risk of obesity than the general population, but data regarding implications of obesity in women with psychiatric disorders are sparse. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to assess pre-pregnancy weights and gestational weight gain in women who were exposed to second-generation antipsychotics (SGAs) during pregnancy compared to controls...

BACKGROUND: Psychiatric disorders, such as depression, are very common in cardiac patients and are independently linked to adverse cardiac outcomes, including mortality. Collaborative care and other integrated care models have been used successfully to manage psychiatric conditions in patients with heart disease, with beneficial effects on function and other outcomes. Novel programs using remote delivery of mental health interventions and promotion of psychological well-being may play an increasingly large role in supporting cardiovascular health...

BACKGROUND: Multi-national studies have identified an increased risk for depression and anxiety among the cystic fibrosis population. People with cystic fibrosis and depression have decreased lung function, adherence, and quality of life, and increased health care utilization. This is a pilot study of mental health screening and referral of patients with cystic fibrosis in a large tertiary medical center. OBJECTIVE: Patients with a diagnosis of cystic fibrosis aged 8 and older, medically admitted to a tertiary hospital, were screened for eligibility and offered mental health screening for depression and anxiety...

BACKGROUND: Integrating behavioral health care into the primary care setting is increasingly recognized as an effective way to manage mental illness and substance use disorders on a population level in the United States. The term "integrated care," however, is used in many ways and encompasses several different models. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this article is to provide a conceptual framework to understand the landscape of models of integrated care and to use this framework to contrast the roles of behavioral health providers in integrated settings with those in traditional behavioral health delivery models...

Scott R Beach, John B Taylor, Nicholas Kontos
BACKGROUND: Despite the prevalence with which trainees encounter patients who attempt to manipulate, deceive, or withhold information from them, trainees receive little formal training in "thinking dirty"-that is, incorporating elements of hidden patient motives into their interview, formulation, and plan. Lack of acknowledgment of these aspects of patient care can lead to resident dissatisfaction, negative countertransference reactions, and decreased empathy for patients. METHODS: In this article, the authors outline a multimodal approach used in a large psychiatry training program for teaching trainees to recognize hidden motivations and deception, which involves formal didactic teaching, process rounds, and clinical experience...

BACKGROUND: The increased prevalence of psychiatric illness among patients with takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) has been previously described. OBJECTIVES: We sought to assess the effect of pre-existing psychiatric illness on clinical outcomes following the diagnosis of TC. METHODS: Adults diagnosed with TC at Vanderbilt University Medical Center between 1999 and 2015 were included in the study. Medical records were retrospectively reviewed to identify any pre-existing mood, anxiety, or schizophrenia-spectrum illness before TC presentation...

REVIEW
Emily G Holmes, Jordan A Holmes, Eliza M Park
BACKGROUND: In recent decades, psychiatrists have become increasingly involved in the care of patients with cancer. Psychiatrists are often less familiar with the field of radiation oncology than with other medical specialties. OBJECTIVE: Therefore, it is beneficial for consulting psychiatrists to be familiar with the basic principles of radiation therapy (RT) and its potential neuropsychiatric sequelae. METHODS: We performed a PubMed search to identify articles describing neuropsychiatric symptoms resulting from RT, including anxiety, claustrophobia, posttraumatic stress disorder, and neurocognitive impairment...

Stephen Pesanti, Brandon Hamm, Bryn Esplin, Matt Karafa, Xavier F Jimenez
BACKGROUND: Psychosocial and ethical variables influence physicians in requesting decision-making capacity (DMC) evaluations. Previous authors have classified certain DMC evaluation requests as "unwarranted" when there is no explicit suspicion or evidence that the patient might lack DMC. OBJECTIVE: To explore psychosocial and ethical reasons motivating both "warranted" and "unwarranted" DMC evaluation requests by physicians in the medical setting. METHODS: A retrospective electronic health record review was approved by the institutional review board...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies have shown evidence of comorbid conditions in chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME). OBJECTIVE: To estimate the prevalence of comorbidities and assess their associations using a nationwide population-based database of a Spanish CFS/ME cohort. METHOD: A nationally representative, retrospective, cross-sectional cohort study (2008-2015) assessed 1757 Spanish subjects who met both the 1994 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention/Fukuda definition and 2003 Canadian Criteria for CFS/ME...
