シンポジウム発表テーマについて

以下4テーマのいずれかからお選びください。

1.  Efforts to ensure continuity of psychiatric care under the COVID-19 pandemic

Under the COVID-19 pandemic, medical/psychiatric institutions had to introduce or strengthen measures to prevent the spread of infection (e.g., temperature measurement, disinfection, preventive equipment, screening of infection at the time of hospitalization, and questionnaires on behavioral history).  An increase in procedures and costs also took place to maintain the existing level of care. Various efforts seem to have been made, depending on the infection severity and the capacity of treatment or care for COVID-19 in the country (region).  

In this symposium, we would like to share the efforts that each country took to ensure continuity of psychiatric care so that we can prepare better for future responses.

Applicants are required to submit an abstract responding to the following questions.

(1) Give an overview of the COVID-19 pandemic in your country (region).

(2) How has psychiatric care changed in your country under the COVID-19 pandemic? How did psychiatric care change under the COVID-19 pandemic in your country? Discuss the increase or decrease of illness and the state of health care delivery.

(3) In your country, in response to the confinement to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection, what mental health care measures have been taken in relation to patient visits and treatment (e.g., remote medical care)?

(4) Discuss the challenges of psychiatric care under the COVID-19 pandemic in your country and how the challenges have been addressed.

2. Mental health of healthcare workers under the COVID-19 pandemic

Treatment and care for the COVID-19 patients caused a huge burden for healthcare workers. In the event of the spread of the infection at a medical/psychiatric institution, responsibility for allowing the infection must have caused an immeasurable burden in addition to the burden to provide treatment. Psychiatric facilities have had to provide support to physical healthcare providers who are treating the COVID-19. Also, psychiatric facilities may have had to provide treatment directly to the COVID-19 positive patients. Thus psychiatry has had a wide range of roles.

In this symposium, we would like to share what kind of support psychiatry has provided to healthcare workers under the COVID-19 pandemic so that we can understand how to provide better support, now and also in the future.

Applicants are required to submit an abstract responding to the following questions.

(1) Give an overview of the COVID-19 pandemic in your country (region).

(2) What kind of medical system has been established for the COVID-19 in your country? (e.g., the establishment of a specialized ward)

(3) Describe a burden and problem among health care workers directly involved in the COVID-19 care in your country. (Occurrence of clusters in hospitals, exhaustion of health care workers, etc.)

(4) In your country, what kind of mental health care has been provided to health care workers directly involved in COVID-19 treatment? What results have you obtained?

3. Mental health of the general population under the COVID-19 pandemic: including a brief case description

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a variety of changes in daily life around the world. The changes in daily life include legally based restrictions such as locking down cities and limiting the number of people at gatherings, and not legally based changes such as recommendation of working from home and discouragement of dining out and traveling.

There have been reports that individuals' mental health has been affected by these changes.

In this symposium, we want to gather knowledge on these restrictions on public mental health so that we can prepare better for future pandemics and other emergencies.

Applicants are required to submit an abstract summarizing the following issues related to psychiatric disorders or psychosocial problems that have increased under the COVID-19 pandemic.

(1) Give an overview of the COVID-19 pandemic in your country (region).

(2) Describe the psychiatric disorders and psychosocial problems noted to have increased under the COVID-19 pandemic in your country (region).

- Psychiatric disorders and psychosocial problems include both children and adults
- Psychosocial problems may include issues such as suicide, child abuse, domestic violence, etc.

(3) Case report: 1 case (brief description)

4. Efforts to maintain mental health in the general population under the COVID-19 pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a variety of changes in daily life around the world. The changes in daily life include legally based restrictions such as locking down cities and limiting the number of people at gatherings, and not legally based changes such as recommendation of working from home and discouragement of dining out and traveling.

The mental health of individuals affected by these changes has been an important public health issue. 

The initiatives to maintain the mental health of individuals under the COVID-19 pandemic seem to include,
1.    public support measures led by government agencies (e.g., mental health awareness, hotlines, and focused abuse prevention campaigns)
2.    support measures led by the private sector and NGOs
3.    individual self-coping (e.g., yoga).

In this symposium, we want to gain knowledge on effective supports for mental health in the general population so that we can prepare better for future pandemics and other emergencies.

Applicants are required to submit an abstract responding to the following questions.

(1) Give an overview of the COVID-19 pandemic in your country (region).

(2) Describe concerns regarding the mental health of the general population in your country (region) under the COVID-19 pandemic and psychosocial problems such as suicide, child abuse, domestic violence, etc.

(3) Describe what kind of large-scale measures were taken to address these concerns for the general population and by what agencies and when under the COVID-19 pandemic. The entity can be any public or non-public organization.

- What efforts have been made to increase the effectiveness of support measures?
- If effectiveness and operational performance have been assessed, what were the results?

(4) Describe the individual-level stress-coping methods that were characteristically used under the COVID-19 pandemic.
