Efficacy of a minimal home-based psychoeducative intervention versus usual care for managing anxiety and dyspnoea in patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: a randomised controlled trial protocol.

Bove DG, Overgaard D, Lomborg K, Lindhardt BØ, Midtgaard J - BMJ Open (2015)

Bottom Line: Anxiety is associated with an impaired quality of life and increased hospital admissions.Untreated comorbid anxiety can have devastating consequences for both patients and their relatives.The intervention is based on a manual, with a theoretical foundation in cognitive-behavioural therapy and psychoeducation.

BMJOPEN2015008031F5: Timeline chart. The numbers refer to the number of days (CRQ, Chronic Respiratory Disease Questionnaire; HADS, Hospital and Anxiety and Depression Scale; SGRQ, St. George's Respiratory Questionnaire).

Mentions: For both groups, follow-up assessments will occur after 4 weeks (follow-up I) and 3 months (follow-up II) postintervention (figure 5). In the telephone booster session, the PI informs participants that they will receive the follow-up I questionnaire by mail within 4 weeks, and follow-up II questionnaire within 12 weeks. They are asked to complete and return the questionnaires within 1 week. If no response is received within 2 weeks, the PI sends a reminder by mail and, as a last resort, contacts the patient by telephone. The purpose of contacting the patients by telephone is to encourage them to complete and return the questionnaires, or identify that they no longer want to participate in the trial. The recruitment process is estimated to last approximately 8–10 months and will continue until 66 participants have been enrolled.
