iproc (iproceedings) is a peer-review and publishing platform for conference papers, abstracts, posters, and presentations. JMIR Publications partners with leading conferences such as Medicine 2.0 or the Connected Health Conference to provide peer-review and editing services, and/or to publish proceedings, posters, or abstracts. If you are a conference organizer or conference chair running a leading medical or technology conference, and wish to outsource the submission and peer-reviewing process, or are interested in hosting a virtual poster show or wish to publish electronic proceedings, or if you are looking for a permanent and open dissemination venue for presentations at your conference, please contact us to discuss partnership options. Starting in 2017, we will also accept individual submissions from researchers who wish to disseminate their poster presented at a major peer-reviewed conference.

UConn CHASM 6th Annual Conference 2022: "Telehealth and Remote Care in a Post-Pandemic World"

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a global public health problem and often leads to deleterious outcomes. IPV is associated with elevated psychological distress, impaired physical health, and high rates of morbidity and mortality. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in December 2019, there has been an exponential increase in the rates of IPV worldwide. The COVID-19 pandemic has also heralded an increased use of telehealth to deliver medical and psychological services. Telehealth is defined as the use of technology communication systems (ie, mobile apps, videoconferencing, etc) in the provision of health care. Given increases in access to Wi-Fi and computing technology, telehealth has become increasingly popular in all types of health care interventions, including those for IPV.

Video telehealth increases access to care for patients living in rural communities and those whose functional status makes attending brick-and-mortar health care visits difficult. This includes many older adults whose accumulated health risks, due to age and chronic illness, may result in higher rates of disability. Older adults underutilize video visits due to decreased digital literacy and age-related impairments. While caregiver assistance may ameliorate such barriers, little is known about the role of caregivers to support patient participation in video telehealth, particularly for more hands-on clinical services such as occupational therapy (OT).

Addiction treatment evolved quickly during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States, with changes likely increasing access to some forms of care (eg, medications for opioid use disorder) and reducing access to others (eg, inpatient treatments). Efforts to continue providing quality addiction treatment to veterans may have benefitted from the Veteran’s Healthcare Administration’s existing telehealth infrastructure. Veterans’ experiences of care during this time are key to evaluating these efforts.

Obesity and dental decay are linked through poor diet. In the United States, >13% of 2-5–year-old children have obesity and >21% have tooth decay, with the highest rates in Black and Latino children and those from low-income families. Conflicting information, barriers, and lack of access to healthy food and dental care influence the risk of poor diet and insufficient oral hygiene. Of particular interest is whether leveraging technology can deliver tailored and motivational interventions to promote a healthier diet and oral hygiene behaviors in young children of high-need families.
