Psychological health and well-being in systemic sclerosis (SSc): State of the science and consensus research agenda

1 post in this topic

Psychological health and well-being in systemic sclerosis (SSc): State of the science and consensus research agenda. Key areas where behavioral health and psychological approaches may be useful to assess and improve quality of life in SSc include depression, fatigue, pain, pruritus, body image distress, and sexual function. Less researched areas that warrant attention include sleep, fear of disease progression and dependency, family and couples relationships, and healthcare factors. BD Thombs. (PubMed) Arthritis Care Res (Hoboken). 2010 Mar 16. (Also see: Emotional Adjustment)
