The following study concluded that successful ageing is not only about the maintenance of health, but about maximizing one’s psychological resources, namely self-efficacy and resilience. Increasing use of preventive care, better medical management of morbidity, and changing lifestyles in older people may have beneficial effects on health and longevity, but may not improve their quality of life. Adding years to life and life to years may require two distinct and different approaches, one physical and the other psychological.

In 2013 there was a report out on an evaluation of the Veterans Health Administration's (VHA) medical home program, the largest integrated US health system to implement the model, providing primary care for more than 5 million patients nationwide. The data showed that in-person primary care visit rates slightly decreased, while increases were seen in non-traditional visits, such as phone encounters, enhanced personal health record use, and electronic messaging to providers.  The findings also demonstrated improvement in post-hospitalization follow-up and home telemonitoring after enhancements to care coordination processes.

Universal Screening of Behavioral Contributions to Poor Health

Behaviors such as tobacco use, excessive drinking, drug use, poor diet, and physical inactivity are responsible for 40% of deaths, most chronic diseases, and disability, and $539 billion in costs for health care and productivity loss in the United States. For this reason it is imperative for Behavioral Medicine approaches included universal testing for these types of behaviors for all patients.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Results from this research study indicated that the CFS sample had a very high incidence (58%) of previously undiagnosed primary sleep disorder such as sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome and restless legs/periodic limb movement disorder. They also had very high rates of self-reported insomnia and nonrestorative sleep. Narcolepsy and CFS participants were very similar on psychological adjustment: both these groups had more psychological maladjustment than did control group participants. This data suggest that primary sleep disorders in individuals with CFS are underdiagnosed in primary care settings and that the psychological disturbances seen in CFS may well be the result of living with a chronic illness that is poorly recognized or understood.

Cardiac Rehabilitation

Methods include improving knowledge about coronary heart disease and reducing  misconceptions, helping patients initiate and maintain lifestyle changes (e.g., smoking, eating and exercise) by goal setting and action planning, managing stress and reducing psychological distress, enhancing adherence to medical advice and cardiac medication, and improving the quality of life by restoring confidence.

Chronic Pain

Clinical research has demonstrated that cognitive-behavioral therapy can be of benefit to patients with chronic pain if they are engaged in the process of therapy. “The techniques involved in cognitive-behavioral therapy can be particularly helpful for patients who have chronic pain, as they provide concrete, manageable tools for coping with pain; these skills have also been found to be generalizable to other problems in patients’ lives.”

Back Pain

In this controlled treatment study, biofeedback ingredients did not lead to improved outcomes when compared with psychological interventions. Cognitive-behavioral treatment as a “package” of respondent, operant and cognitive interventions was effective for ameliorating pain-related symptoms for chronic back pain patients treated in an outpatient setting.

Self-Efficacy and improved Locus of Control have been found powerful psychological elements in the control of headache pain and discomfort. An efficacious and easily administered strategy is relaxation/stress-management. Although most physicians appreciate the potential benefits of managing stress, many are surprised that these strategies can also improve Self Efficacy for managing headache and likely create a more internal Locus of Control. Education strategies (eg, recognizing and managing triggers, taking medication as prescribed, understanding the “migraine” brain) can also improve patient outcomes and increase Self Efficacy.

A study using an integrated approach with HIV patients concluded that it is important to broaden traditional concepts of the purposes and reach of mental health services in ways that reflect a whole person view of the individual as a biopsychosocial unity. From this perspective, while offering evidence-based interventions to treat psychological disorders remains important, programming also must focus on the role of mental health services relative to prevention of health problems and sustaining health and wellbeing.
