Improving care for young IBD patients : Psychosocial and clinical factors
Verbeteren van de zorg voor jonge IBD-patiënten : Psychosociale en klinische factoren
The general aim of this thesis is to investigate two themes relevant to adolescent and young adult IBD patients: psychosocial problems, especially anxiety and depression, and transition to adult care.
The specific aims of this thesis are:
- To systematically review the scientific international literature with regard to the prevalence of anxiety and/or depression in paediatric and adolescent IBD
- To study the prevalence and risk factors of anxiety and/or depression in Dutch adolescents and young adult patients with IBD
- To investigate the effectiveness of cognitive behavioural therapy on both psychological symptoms and clinical disease course in young IBD patients suffering from mild or subclinical anxiety and/or depressive symptoms
- To identify immunological profiles in IBD patients with anxiety and/or depression, and investigate if these profiles are altered by cognitive behavioural therapy
- To study outcome of transition, especially identifying which factors health care providers and patients find important for success of transition to adult care.
