In this study, we will examine whether use of the Sleep Intervention protocol marketed by Interaxon (the 'Muse'), leads to improvements in sleep quality (e.g. decreased latency to sleep, improved sleep duration), as well as knock-on improvements on measures of mindfulness, improvement in quality of life scores, reduction in perceived stress levels, anxiety, improvements in cognitive performance, improvement in markers relevant for safety, and increased success in the workplace in healthy participants.
Patients with COPD will be entered. Participants will be randomized to one of three study arms: Arm 1: meditation; Arm 2: relaxation; Arm 3: Control. Hypothesis: Progressive muscle relaxation and mindfulness meditation will decrease severity of dyspnea, fatigue and care dependency.
This study intends to include any participant who has registered and plans to attend the Inner Engineering In-Person Completion Course. This course was offered at two time periods (March and April 2019) in Los Angeles and Philadelphia, respectively. The investigators are currently recruiting for the upcoming conferences in Toronto & Dallas (November 2019). Investigators anticipate that this study can include up to 5,000 study participants. Participants would attend this course and complete the pre-modules regardless of whether or not they participate in this study.
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is one of the most common heart rhythm disorders and it is associated with a variety of symptoms leading to a considerable deterioration in quality of life. The Mental-AF trial is intended to inquire if an app-based mental training can reduce the occurrence of symptomatic AF episodes within the blanking period, i.e. the first three months after catheter ablation for AF.
Violence in the workplace is becoming a serious phenomenon in the contemporary world of work. Hospital staff, like any employee working in contact with the public, is particularly exposed to this violence. In emergency departments, the number of patients treated and their heterogeneity, the problems of communicating with healthcare professionals, and waiting times, favor conflict situations. In the already tense context of the emergencies, the incivilities or violent acts have an impact on the well-being of professionals. In order to prevent these situations of violence, a solution could be to integrate a professional with specific skills into the teams to perform mediation functions between caregivers and patients. The aim of the study is to evaluate the impact of the presence of a mediator in emergency services on personal (verbal or physical) attacks on professionals (caregivers, doctors, administrative staff).
