A useful theoretical framework in reducing emotional and psychological problems is the Progressively Lowered Stress Threshold (PLST) model, which was originally developed by Hall and Buckwalter (1987). Adapted from stress adaptation and coping models, the PLST model identifies clinical triggers such as fatigue, change in routine, inappropriate stimulation, and internal and external demands that exceed the capacities of the person with dementia.

Hi there. I found it is really impressive that telehealth is so powerful, far beyond my imagination! It turns out telehealth covers so many themes, including the telehealth modalities (e.g., video, asynchronous), clinical topics (e.g., chronic disease management), telehealth function (e.g., remote patient monitoring, consultations). Could you help me with its effectiveness? It seems impossible for me to summarize.

Hi there. While it sounds like data visualizations are so valuable, I wonder if there is any weakness about it that social workers should keep in mind?

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
