Despite the availability of effective treatments for late life depression, data indicate that only a small minority of adults over the age of 65 years with depression access any kind of care for emotional or mental health problems. Using data from the Canadian Community Health Survey (Cycle 1.1), we compared patterns of mental health service utilization(More)
Training models that incorporate case supervision in addition to didactic instruction appear to be effective in maximizing clinicians' proficiency in evidence-based treatments (EBTs). However, it is unknown the extent to which these models promote sustained adoption of EBTs. We describe the results of an online survey on post-training utilization of an EBT,(More)
Although strong evidence supports cognitive-behavioral therapy for late-life depression and depression in racial and ethnic minorities, there are no empirical studies on the treatment of depression in older sexual minorities. Three distinct literatures were tapped to create a depression treatment protocol for an older gay male. Interventions were deduced(More)
BACKGROUND Adults aged 65 years and older stand to benefit from the accumulating wealth of Internet-based health resources, including online interventions to assist in the self-management of chronic health conditions. However, concerns have been expressed that lesser Internet use and familiarity among older adults may limit the utility of web-based health(More)
OBJECTIVE Computerized cognitive-behavioural therapy (CCBT) may enhance older adults' access to evidence-based depression treatment. Our objective was to determine the extent to which adults aged 65 years and older are represented in existing studies of CCBT for depression and describe available data on recruitment, retention, and outcomes. METHODS We(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to examine whether age-related differences in rates of use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) specifically for mental health problems parallel well-known age-related differences in use of conventional mental health services and medications. METHODS A sample of middle-aged (45-64 years; n = 10,762),(More)
(UNC-CH). In this section, we briefly describe this larger project. Networking researchers and practitioners have been using simulators, experimental research testbeds, and distributed systems for designing and evaluating new networking technologies for more than a decade now. Indeed, experimentation, either via software simulation using simulators such as(More)
The discovery of a fragment of DNA that is linked closely to the Huntington's-disease autosomal locus offers the opportunity for the presymptomatic diagnosis of this dominantly-inherited neurodegenerative disorder. Presymptomatic testing will present individuals and society with difficult choices and responsibilities. A pilot adult presymptomatic test(More)
