Synergy in Basic and Applied BSSR

Graduate Training Programs in Translational Science

A major barrier to effective synergy between "basic" and "applied" BSSR is that individual investigators typically have been trained primarily on one side or the other of that spectrum. The traditional solution to this problem is collaboration: more "basic" and more "applied" scientists can learn to collaborate with each other. This solution has been somewhat effective and collaboration will always been important. But... more »

Social predictors of treatment adherence in chronic disease

There has been growing recognition that adherence is a major barrier to effective treatment of long-term, chronic disease. This is particularly true for treatment regimens which are intensive, time-consuming and which must be completed indefinitely (e.g. treatment for cystic fibrosis, diabetes etc.). Many of these chronic illnesses have onset in childhood/adolescence. However, adherence can be a particular challenge during... more »

Inclusion & Specificity

Historically, there has been a lack of research that directly realates to the following populations:
- Transgender Men, particularly those who are not heterosexual
- Nonbinary genders of all kinds - transgender-identifying and not, from agender to pangender, from genderfluid and genderflux to more static nonbinary genders that don't shift in feminine/masculine/other quality, or in intensity of gender-feelings.
- Transwomen... more »

Developing a theory of nursing based on the ideas of Nobel laureates and nominees.

Nursing is an interdisciplinary field, the role of which increases in the era of the "Epidemic of Disease". The development of the theory of nursing, based on the ideas of Nobel laureates and nominees, will allow us to consider the relationship in the "triangle": patient - nurse / relatives - doctor, taking into account social and economic components. Its advantage may be the ability to use when developing artificial... more »

Oliver Sacks as a model for communication of novel medical insights

Oliver Sacks, MB, ChB, (1933-2015) is a paradigmatic model for effective communication of novel medical insights. He produced a lifelong stream of popular and readable books, three of which were further developed as popular movies: 1) Awakenings, 2) The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, 3) At First Sight.

Heavy metal exposures and mental health symptoms in exposed communities

To address and collaborate extensively with community-based mental health providers on targeting heavy metal (uranium, lead, cadmium, tungsten, plutonium, cesium etc.) and arsenic exposed communities living and dealing with the aftermath of industrial mining, occupational and transgenerational exposures to metal mixtures, who are living close to unremediated mine and mining waste sites. These communities have rural, low... more »

Behavioral medicine needs to go after the determinants of behavioral health

In behavioral medicine we largely confine ourselves to doing what we can to clean up the water drawn from a septic well rather going for the toxins that are polluting the water in the first place.
Our obesity rates are a case in point. Behavioral programs, marginally effective in long-term weight loss, play around with things like phone-delivered prompts, or examining the personal qualities associated with behavior change,... more »

Keeping Families Together With Respite Care for Children with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders

Respite care is available for children with autism spectrum disorder and intellectual or developmental disabilities. However, respite care for children with emotional and behavioral disorders is rarely available and difficult to access. When families are in crisis and law enforcement respond to the home, a cool-down period is needed for everyone if the child is not removed. However, there is no available option for... more »

Value & utilize *the arts* to develop more trauma-informed, culturally-responsive health research methods

Given increasing acknowledgements of culture and trauma as significant health determinants, it's clear that research methods failing to consider them may "do harm." In addition, if individuals or communities are unable or unwilling to communicate experiences via conventional approaches (if they are limited by ability, trauma, distrust, etc), then what data are we missing? What harms might we perpetuate? Integrating and... more »

New data, new analytical methods, focus on prediction

Privacy of individual patient data need not be sacrificed in order to build comprehensive, accessible databases. SAMHSA is an example. Having "too much data" and "too many variables" are not problematic for data science and machine learning to distill the true drivers of behavioral disorders. What is needed most of all are time series data on individual patients that document medication assisted therapy, talk and rehabilitation... more »

Local validation of measures

All measurement is local. Scales for assessing social and medical needs and outcomes developed in one location often don't work in other locations due to differences in data availability, demographics, culture, etc. The best measures have been validated in multiple locations, such as the SF36 or AUDIT. So OBSSR should fund research that validates measures of social support, well-being, stress, adverse experiences, etc.... more »
