Recent research has demonstrated that first responders may report posttraumatic growth (PTG), positive psychological changes that arise in the aftermath of a trauma. Less is known regarding the perception of PTG among 9-1-1 telecommunicators, a group of first responders exposed to a high degree of lifetime trauma, including duty-related trauma as well as early and non-duty-related trauma. Moreover, the impact of childhood trauma on the processes involved in the perception of growth is less clear. While some distress is needed to facilitate processes that lead to the perception of PTG, it has been suggested that positive associations between PTG and pathology reflect avoidant coping or represent an illusory component of PTG...

Adverse events (AEs) are common during disease-modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARD) treatment, but their influence on treatment results is unclear. We studied AEs in relation to disease activity in early rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Ninety-nine patients started intensive treatment with three conventional synthetic DMARDs (csDMARDs) and oral prednisolone, and were randomized to a 6-month induction treatment with infliximab or placebo. All AEs during the first 12 months of treatment were recorded. We scored each AE based on severity (scale 1-4) and defined the burden of AEs as the sum of these scores...

BACKGROUND: As mortality from coronary heart disease (CHD) falls, years lived with disability increase. Depression and anxiety are known indicators of poor outcomes in CHD, but most research has measured distress symptoms at one time point, often following acute events. Here we consider the long-term trajectories of these symptoms in established CHD, and examine their association to distinct measures of disability and impact on costs. METHODS AND RESULTS: 803 patients with diagnosis of CHD were recruited from primary care, and completed detailed assessments every 6months for 3years...
