Mental Disorder clinical trials at UC Davis
2 research studies open to eligible people
Is viewing videotaped interviews with patients as effective as psychiatric evaluation via live teleconference in SNFs?
“Help us learn more about new approaches to providing psychiatric consultations in Skilled nursing facilities (SNFs)”
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
There is a critical shortage of psychiatric services to people with mental illness who live in Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs), especially those in rural settings. Although real-time video conferencing psychiatric consultation, termed Synchronous Telepsychiatry (STP), has been around for almost 3 decades, its adaptation is met with logistic and other challenges. In this context, the investigators investigate a novel method of psychiatric consultation termed Asynchronous Telepsychiatry (ATP). The main hypotheses are that that ATP will be as clinically effective as STP, and that it will be acceptable to patients. This study aims to evaluate the comparative clinical effectiveness of ATP vs. STP in SNF population, in a 12-month non-inferiority, randomized, controlled trial.
