Major Depressive Disorder Indicated With 54 Percent Of Participants In Chronic Pain Study
Chronic Pain researcher Marian Wilson, PhD, MPH, RN-BC, an Assistant Professor at Washington State University College of Nursing in Spokane, Washington, is now actively recruiting people with any chronic illness and depressive symptoms to test an online depression program. "My goal is to address the under-treated and under-detected depression in those with chronic disease that leads to worsening of overall health outcomes," says Dr Wilson, who is is board certified in Pain Management Nursing from the American Nurses Credentialing Center & American Society for Pain Management Nursing, and has experience as a nurse scientist leading clinical research in acute care settings. The program was developed by Goalistics, a company founded by two psychologists, Dr. Linda Ruehlman and Dr. Paul Karoly for the purpose of developing affordable and easy-to-use computer-based tools to aid in treatment for chronic pain and depression. Drs. Ruehlman and Karoly have been awarded 10 research grants from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke and the National Institute of Mental Health, funds from which were used to study and develop several different assessment tools and training programs, including the Multidimensional Health Profile, the Profile of Chronic Pain, and the Pain Self-Management Program.
