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.
The motor trajectories of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are often compromised, leading to difficulties in gross motor performance and locomotor skills by late childhood. Our past work has suggested that whole-body movement interventions using rhythmic contexts can facilitate gross motor skills in children with ASD.
Suicide is the second leading cause of death in adolescents aged 14-18 years. Adolescents who misused prescription opioids are more likely to experience suicidal thoughts and behaviors than adolescents who did not. Compelling evidence shows “serious games” (ie, games for a purpose other than solely entertainment) can promote healthy behaviors, reduce risk factors, enhance protective factors through skill-building, and target prevention.
Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) demonstrate significant motor impairments in visuomotor and body coordination, agility, and strength. Around 87% of children with ASD are at risk for motor impairments. However, only about 31% of these children receive rehabilitation services to address their motor needs.
Low-income children in the United States have high rates of obesity and dental caries. Social media may be an efficient and accessible tool to engage individuals in relevant evidence-based nutrition and dental information and motivate healthier behaviors. Previous research on social media–delivered behavioral interventions suggests that engagement may vary by post type.
Eating disorders (EDs) are complex mental illnesses with debilitating, pervasive psychological and physiological consequences when left untreated. Unfortunately, patients may face barriers to receiving treatment, such as stereotypes surrounding EDs, denial of illness severity, lack of motivation for treatment, and lack of knowledge about treatment resources. Barriers such as these result in a large treatment gap: only 20% of those with EDs will ever receive treatment. Digital tools like chatbots show potential to disseminate mental health–related interventions to large populations while offering a user-friendly, cost-effective, accessible, and anonymous means of tackling patient concerns.
The use of smartphone apps can improve the HIV prevention cascade for key populations such as men who have sex with men (MSM). In Malaysia, where stigma and discrimination toward MSM are high, app-based strategies have the potential to open new frontiers for HIV prevention efforts. However, little guidance is available to inform researchers about ethical concerns unique to the development and implementation of app-based HIV prevention programs.
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is the most common pediatric neurodevelopmental disorder with a prevalence of 1 in every 44 children. Children with ASD exhibit social communication and behavioral impairments including poor verbal and nonverbal communication and heightened frequencies of repetitive and maladaptive behaviors (RBs).
The COVID-19 pandemic brought unprecedented challenges to health care systems across the world. Health care professionals were burdened with time constraints as they balanced care for a large number of patients while managing crippling resource shortages. In the pandemic’s early stages, it was challenging for health care providers to provide evidence-based therapies due to the novel nature of COVID-19. There were also pressures to adopt unproven, yet highly touted treatments based on media reports and social media postings. These challenges were identified by Critical Care Services Ontario (CCSO), a provincial health organization that ensures the integration of the critical care system in Ontario, Canada. Since traditional methods of knowledge translation were inaccessible during the pandemic, CCSO created a webinar series titled Ontario Critical Care Clinical Practice Rounds (OC3PR) to share evidence-based practices with critical care professionals.
