On March 31st 2014 - following the inaugural World Bipolar Day - Dr. Erin Michalak, Associate Professor of Psychiatry, hosted a live webinar to explore findings from CREST.BD's current Delphi Self-Management study. During the webinar Dr. Michalak discussed the study's participatory methods, shared some of the demographic data and research findings from Phase 1 of the study, as well as discussed the team's experiences with using Delphi Consensus methods. We've recently launched Round 2 of our Delphi study to our 150 survey panel members. In this 30 minute webinar you'll learn more about the findings of this unique international study, how the findings will be used to improve wellness in bipolar disorder, and how to get involved in CREST.BD's community-engaged research.

  • Strategic Vision for Research and Knowledge Exchange Effective psychosocial research and knowledge exchange in BD is critical. CREST.BD advances BD psychosocial research and application of research in Canada and internationally. In doing so, we optimise health and QoL and diminish stigma for people with BD across the lifespan.
  • CREST.BD
  • Methods •Membership: academic researchers, people with BD, family members, healthcare providers •Multidisciplinary: psychology, psychiatry, criminology, nursing, gerontology, genetic counselling, social work, OT •Expertise: wide range of BD specialisation •Focus: integrated knowledge exchange •Emphasis: community-based participatory research framework

  • Previous research • First study of wellness strategies used by people with BD • Strategies to stay well: - acceptance of diagnosis - mindfulness education - identifying triggers/warning signs - sleep/stress management - lifestyle changes - treatment access - stay well plans Russell and Browne (2005) Staying well with bipolar disorder. Aust N Z J Psychiatry; 39(3):187-93. Russell and Browne (2005) Staying well with BD. Aust N Z J Psychiatry; 39(3):187-93.
  • Wellness in BD study Study Aim – To identify self-management strategies used by people living well with BD Methods - Purposeful sampling used to identify: ~ People with BD Type I/II (N = 32) ~ Median Age: 41 13 yrs ~ 63% female ~ 78% BD I ~ Functioning well Individual interviews or focus groups, thematic analysis.

  • Study objective: To generate knowledge on what self- management strategies work best for: - Keeping balance in mood - Stopping progression in hypomania and mania
  • CREST.BD definition of ‘self-management’ • Plans and/or routines that a person with BD uses to promote health and QoL • Healthcare providers can provide information about self-management strategies • Friends, family or caregivers can be involved in developing strategies and supporting their use • Outside of hospital settings, it is typically the person with BD who chooses, enacts their approach to self-management and tailors their self- management strategies • Encompass a wide range of plans, activities or routines, e.g., optimising sleep or eating habits, pursuing leisure activities, engaging in relaxation practices

  • Looking at “Other” Geographies • 3% of CMs (n=6) from other geographies • These were Australia, France, Italy & UK Healthcare provider respondents were more diverse than community member respondents • 20% of healthcare providers (n=10) from geographies other than US/Canada • These were Australia, HK, NZ, Spain, Swed en, Turkey, UK & Yemen
  • Round 1 Results SMS ratings There was a very high level of consensus between both panels on the ratings Strategies about early warning signs were prominent for Stopping Progression Strategies about relationships and emotions were prominent for Maintaining Balance Strategies for Maintaining Balance were rated higher than those for Stopping Progression
  • Round 1 Results And while there was consensus… …there were also interesting, though slight, differences between the opinions of the panels. HCPs had more strategies for Stopping Progression in their top quartile than CMs did CMs rated strategies about social supports lower than HCPs for both MB and SP
  • Round 1 Results What about low-rated strategies? The lowest-rated strategy for both panels was “Take St. John’s Wort” Strategies that referenced spirituality received low ratings from panels Strategies about regulating diet generally did not rate highly in either panel No strategies on parenting and only one on sex in the highest quartile for either panel
  • Choosing which SMSs to include in Round 2 • Strategies for Maintaining Balance received higher ratings than those for Stopping Progression • We decided to choose an equal number of both types of strategy
  • Top Strategies • We chose the strategies in the top quartile (highest 25%) for both Maintaining Balance and Stopping Progression • This gave us an equal number of both types of strategy
  • Choosing which SMSs to include in Round 2 • Round 1: 436 strategies • Round 2: 154 strategies • 70 strategies for both Maintaining Balance and Stopping Progression • 42 each for only MB or SP • Approximately 15 to 20 minutes to complete
