Videoconference-resiliency Intervention Successfully Targets Health-related Anxiety in Adults With Congenital Heart Disease
Mass General researchers developed a mind-body intervention to improve resiliency in patients with chronic medical conditions that can be delivered via synchronous group videoconferencing. The intervention was successful in targeting health-related anxiety in adults with congenital heart disease (ACHD).
