New technology is changing the way we think about the delivery of psychiatric services. But new isn’t necessarily better. Can care really be transformed? What does the literature say?e-therapy: more than clever pictures of computers and stethoscopes?
In a two-part Reading of the Week, we look at technology and psychiatry.
Last week, Virtual Reality.
This week, e-therapies.
This week, we consider a new paper that has just been published. Its looks at self-guided Internet-based CBT showing that for every eight people treated, one benefits (consider this in the context of minimal cost).
And, in the other selection, we look at the Finnish experience with Internet-based CBT.
