I’m also delighted with this week’s Hot Research, because it validates the support a family caregiver who is tending to a chronically ill relative – usually a spouse of a kid - can get from Telehealth solutions – help through a computer, a phone or an app. This is extremely important, given the number of people who are overwhelmed from functioning in this role.
Finally, I’m happy to post one person’s story about overcoming claustrophobic terror at the prospect of being stuck in a tube for 20 minutes for an MRI. It supports a counter-intuitive finding from Blue Shield of California, and also from Columbia Presbyterian Hospital – that the more anxious patients are, the steeper the drop in anxiety and the greater the benefit from guided imagery.
So, enjoy this issue, post your comments and be well!
