NCT ID: NCT04644978 Recruiting - Mental Illness Clinical Trials

European Study on the Attitude of Psychiatrists Towards Their Patients

Start date: July 29, 2020
Study type: Observational

Background: Many people think that people with mental disorders might be dangerous or unpredictable. These patients face various sources of disadvantages and experience discrimination on job interviews, in education, and housing. Mental health-related stigma (MHS) occurs not only within the public community, it is a growing issue among professionals as well. Aim: We designed a prospective, observational, multi-centre, international study of 35 European countries to investigate the MHS among medical specialists and trainees in the field of general adult and child and adolescent psychiatry. Methods: An internet-based, anonymous survey will measure the stigmatizing attitude by using the local version of the Opening Minds Stigma Scale for Health Care Providers. Presentation of the Results: The results of the research will be published in an international peer-reviewed journal. Furthermore, we will present the results on national and international conferences.

NCT ID: NCT04595123 Recruiting - Depression Clinical Trials

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic in Perinatal Mental Health (RISEUP-PPD-COVID-19)

Start date: June 15, 2020
Study type: Observational

Introduction: Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a new pathology, declared a public health emergency by the World Health Organization, which can have negative consequences for pregnant women and their newborns. It is estimated that 1 in 5 women will develop a mental illness in the perinatal period. COVID-19 pandemic has been associated with anxiety and depression in the population. The current pandemic is a unique stressor with potentially wide-ranging consequences in the perinatal period, but little is known about the impact of COVID-19 on perinatal mental health. Thus, the objective of this study is to explore the experiences of pregnant and new mothers during the current pandemic, particularly its impact on perinatal mental health (including depression, anxiety, PTSD and psychological distress). Methods: The study design is a prospective observational study, with a baseline assessment and three follow-ups: one month; three months; and six months post baseline. This international study will be carried out in 11 European countries (Albania, Bulgaria, Cyprus, France, Greece, Israel, Malta, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, United Kingdom) Chile and Brazil. The study population will comprise pregnant women and new mothers with an infant under six months of age, covering a broad range of women across the perinatal period. Ethics and dissemination: The study and handling of the data will follow all national required data protection standards. Each researcher (or team of researchers) involved will submit the project to their local ethical committee before starting the project. Results from the project will be disseminated in peer reviewed journals and international conferences.

NCT ID: NCT04360226 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Assessing the Utility of Peak Inspiratory Flow as a Predictor for COPD Exacerbations

Start date: December 14, 2020
Study type: Observational

This is an international, mulitcentre, observational, prospective study into Peak Inspiratory Flow in COPD patients that aims to: A) Determine the prevalence of suboptimal Peak Inspiratory Flow (PIF) and inadequate inhaler choice and assess the baseline characteristics of these groups. B) Assess the clinical role of PIF and inhaler choice in predicting COPD exacerbations and symptom burden. C) Assess the variability and correlation of PIF with other lung function measurements and CAT score in stable COPD. It is a 12 month study comprising one baseline assessment and 2 follow-up visits at 6 and 12 months.

NCT ID: NCT04206046 Active, not recruiting - Clinical trials for Arthroplasty, Replacement, Knee

The Effect of Regional Anaesthesia and Genetic Factors in the Development of Chronic Pain Following Total Knee Arthroplasty

Start date: June 1, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The study aims to assess the effect of spinal anaesthesia against a general anaesthesia with a femoral block, with respect to the incidence of chronic pain following a total knee replacement. It will also focus on genetic factors and their influence on chronic pain.

NCT ID: NCT04165369 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Acute Kidney Injury (AKI)

Observational Study to Evaluate the Epidemiology of Surgical-induced Acute Kidney Injury

Start date: June 9, 2020
Study type: Observational

The evaluation of an accurate occurrence rate for AKI is of great importance for health policy, quality initiatives as well as for designing clinical trials. The primary objective is to prospectively evaluate the incidence of AKI within 72 h after extended surgical procedures that require admission to an observation unit.

NCT ID: NCT04114591 Completed - Cancer Clinical Trials

Contributing Factors to Anterior Resection Syndrome and Its Impact on Quality of Life: A Retrospective Cohort Study

Start date: July 1, 2018
Study type: Observational

This study adds to the understanding of the contributing factors leading to LARS, the long term effects of this syndrome post-operatively and its impact on quality of life.

NCT ID: NCT04009473 Enrolling by invitation - Menopause Clinical Trials

Stem Cell Therapy and Growth Factor Ovarian in Vitro Activation

Start date: June 1, 2019
Phase: Phase 1/Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

SEGOVA procedure includes - Stem cell therapy, G - Growth factor Platelet Plasma Rich therapy and in Vitro Activation of the ovaries.

NCT ID: NCT03729583 Completed - Clinical trials for Interstitial Lung Disease

The Effects of Breathing Retraining in Patients With Interstitial Lung Diseases

Start date: July 1, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Breathing retraining has been reported to lead to improvements in dyspnoea and walking distance in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients. Evidence regarding the effects of such an intervention in ILD patients is though lacking. In view of this, the aims of such a study were to identify whether breathing retraining led to better management of dyspnoea and improved walking distance in ILD patients.

NCT ID: NCT03542318 Completed - Pulmonary Fibrosis Clinical Trials

Effects of Pulmonary Rehabilitation on Functional and Health Status Measures in Pulmonary Fibrosis

Start date: March 1, 2014
Study type: Observational

The inclusion of Pulmonary Rehabilitation (PR) as part of the management of pulmonary fibrosis although being highly recommended and recommended in guidelines still sees studies exploring the outcomes from such an intervention limited. The present study aims to contribute to the available literature by investigating the effects of a high intensity, 12week PR programme on functional and quality of life measures in patients with a diagnosis of pulmonary fibrosis.

NCT ID: NCT02807857 Completed - Clinical trials for Chronic Heart Failure (CHF)

A Prospective Evaluation of Natriuretic Peptide Based Referral of CHF Patients in Primary Care

Start date: July 7, 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This low interventional study, whose unique intervention was to measure the blood level of a biomarker called NT-proBNP in chronic heart failure patients daily followed-up by Primary Care Physicians (PCPs) in Europe, assessed if the cardiologist referral guided by NT-proBNP measurement in patients who were currently judged by PCPs as being stable, would lead to optimization of HF treatment, defined in adherence to treatment recommendations of the current European Society of Cardiology guidelines for the treatment of heart failure.
