Assessing Psychotherapy Outcome in Treatment as Usual Versus Treatment as Usual With the STIC Feedback System
This study is a comparison of client outcomes in two different types of psychotherapy treatment. In one condition clients will receive treatment-as-usual (TAU); the therapy that they would normally receive. In the other condition clients will receive treatment-as-usual but in addition their therapist will have access to empirical feedback on client progress. Clients in the feedback condition will fill out weekly online questionnaires, and their therapists will have access to a website that feeds back the results of these questionnaires. The purpose of the study is to understand the impact of providing such feedback to therapists. Participating therapists at 4 sites will offer all of their clients the opportunity to participate, and participating clients will be randomly assigned to either condition. This should result in a representative sample of client seeking treatment at these 4 Chicago-area clinics.
International Congenital Central Hypoventilation Syndrome (CCHS) REDCap Registry
The Center for Autonomic Medicine in Pediatrics (CAMP) has built the first International CCHS (Congenital Central Hypoventilation Syndrome REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) Registry. This registry is an international collaboration with CCHS patients and their physicians recruited from around the world.
The purpose of this IRB-approved research study is to gain a better understanding of the various clinical manifestations of CCHS with advancing age, and as related to each patient's specific PHOX2B mutation. With a better understanding of specific CCHS PHOX2B mutations and associated disease manifestations, we will be able to better anticipate healthcare needs and to provide more accurate guidelines to healthcare providers world-wide in caring for patients with CCHS.
The study aims to obtain detailed phenotypic information (information about health and well-being) on patients with CCHS. Participation would require filling out a confidential survey that asks questions regarding phenotype and past medical history. Involvement in the project is completely voluntary and there is no compensation for taking part. However, this project will help us learn more about this devastating disease, with the goal of advancing treatment.
