    Psychological Responses to Acute Illness: Identifying and Addressing Pathological Adjustment
  • by David Moore 
  • Room: Governors E, Time Slot: 10:50 AM Thu 10/04/18
    View Description

    The impact of acute illness and medical hospitalization reaches far beyond the realm of physical functioning with higher levels of distress (e.g., depression, anxiety) often predicting worse functional outcomes, and increased rates of distress being reported by patients requiring intensive care. Additionally, a majority of hospitalized medical patients will face a stressor which will serve as a stimulus (e.g., onset, exacerbation, or absence of bodily changes) leading to the development of a psychological conflict. Many will resolve this conflict without need for further intervention, though some will be unable to, which may lead to the development of a psychological disorder.
