Assessment of Depression, Anxiety, PTSD and Suicidality in a Sample of Lebanese Adults undergoing Dialysis Following the Beirut Blast

IDRAAC will be initiating a study which aims to assess depression, anxiety, suicidality and PTSD among hemodialysis patients. It will also examine the impact of traumatic events (COVID-19, Beirut explosion or other trauma) in addition to the financial situation, medical comorbidities, past psychiatric history, social isolation, cognitive impairment, religiosity, nutritional status, functional status in relation to depression, anxiety and PTSD occurrence.

This study will also follow hemodialysis patients longitudinally to recheck changes in prevalence rates of depression, anxiety and PTSD at 6 and 12 months.

The study will be implemented in two major hospitals: St George Hospital University Medical Center and Geitawi Hospital both of which suffered major damage during the Beirut Blast.
