National Institute of Mental Health Treatment of Depression Collaborative Research Program. General effectiveness of treatments.
TLDR
There was limited evidence of the specific effectiveness of interpersonal psychotherapy and none for cognitive behavior therapy, but Superior recovery rates were found for both interpersonal Psychotherapy and imipramine plusclinical management, as compared with placebo plus clinical management. Expand
The Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) developed and tested its first wave of adult self-reported health outcome item banks: 2005-2008.
TLDR
The first large-scale testing of PROMIS item banks and their short forms provide evidence that they are reliable and precise measures of generic symptoms and functional reports comparable to legacy instruments. Expand
Item Banks for Measuring Emotional Distress From the Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS®): Depression, Anxiety, and Anger
TLDR
Test information curves showed that the PROMIS item banks provided more information than conventional measures in a range of severity from approximately −1 to +3 standard deviations (with higher scores indicating greater distress). Expand
Treatment expectancies, patient alliance, and outcome: further analyses from the National Institute of Mental Health Treatment of Depression Collaborative Research Program.
TLDR
Patients who expect treatment to be effective tend to engage more constructively in session, which helps bring about symptom reduction, and the hypothesis that the link between treatment expectancies and outcome would be mediated by patients' contribution to the alliance was supported. Expand
Consensus criteria for traumatic grief. A preliminary empirical test.
TLDR
Preliminary analyses suggest the consensus criteria for traumatic grief have satisfactory operating characteristics, and point to directions for further refinement of the criteria set. Expand
Psychiatric disorders among bariatric surgery candidates: relationship to obesity and functional health status.
TLDR
Current and past DSM-IV psychiatric disorders are prevalent among bariatric surgery candidates and are associated with greater obesity and lower functional health status, highlighting the need to understand potential implications for surgery preparation and outcome. Expand
Development of Short Forms From the PROMIS™ Sleep Disturbance and Sleep-Related Impairment Item Banks
TLDR
The short forms had greater measurement precision than the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) and the Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS), as indicated by larger test information values across the continuum of severity, despite having fewer total items—a major advantage for both research and clinical settings. Expand
The role of the therapeutic alliance in psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy outcome: findings in the National Institute of Mental Health Treatment of Depression Collaborative Research Program.
TLDR
Therapeutic alliance was found to have a significant effect on clinical outcome for both psychotherapies and for active and placebo pharmacotherapy, and ratings of therapist contribution to the alliance and outcome were not significantly linked. Expand
Patient predictors of response to psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy: findings in the NIMH Treatment of Depression Collaborative Research Program.
TLDR
The results provide indirect evidence of treatment specificity by identifying characteristics responsive to different modalities, which may be of value in the selection of patients for alternative treatments. Expand
