Major achievements

  • The "Body image Disorder Scale" BIDQ, BIDQQLF was introduced into China for the first time. Quantitative research, qualitative research, evidence-based medicine were combined with basic research to establish a BID prediction model to identify high-risk groups. According to "symptom management theory", precise intervention plan was constructed. With the aid of mobile medical platform, evaluate the dynamic changes of the patients' body image related symptoms, in patients with self-reported outcome (PROMIS) as assessment tool, to verify the feasibility and effectiveness of the intervention plans.This scale has been applied in dozens of schools and more than ten neighboring domains (AS, RA, SLE, SSS,...). Chronic disease symptom Management and Quality of Life research series (Depression, Pain, fatigue, sleep disorders...).The next step is to develop a Chinese version of the Child Body image Disorder Scale, PROMIS will listen to patients' voices, integrate nursing informatics, use EHealth to focus on the whole life cycle of physical and mental health, and improve the life quality of patients.

Conducting basic research, to explore the pain phenotypes, search for pain related biological markers, combined with multiple sets of study (single-celled sequencing, intestinal flora acer, metabolomics), traditional Chinese medicine (moxibustion) for RA pain intervention effectiveness, deposition mechanism, all elements of intervention, to find the optimal timing of intervention, intervention methods, and to improve symptoms and disease outcomes.
