Abstract [en]

Introduction: Anxiety and depression are common among patients enrolled in psychiatric outpatient care. Ear Acupuncture is an alternative form of treatment that has been shown to relieve anxiety and depression in previous studies.

Aim: To evaluate ear acupuncture as a group treatment for depression and anxiety

Method: A psychiatric outpatient clinic has been offering group treatments with ear acupuncture for anxiety and depression for 5 weeks. Participants of the study have answered self-rating scales Montgomery Åsberg Depression Rating Scale, Beck Anxiety Inventory and Sheehan Disability scale before and after the treatment period. Material was collected in the period 2008-2012 and has been analyzed in SPSS.

Results: Data from 31 patients were included in the study. The results from the study showed a significant difference, between the measurements before and after treatment, with a reduction of the average values in the three different scales.

Summary: From this study, it is difficult to draw any conclusions about the effect of ear acupuncture. More studies in this area is needed to be able to draw any conclusions.

Keywords: Acupuncture, anxiety, auricular acupuncture, depression, psychiatric.

Abstract [sv]

Introduktion: Ångest och depression är vanligt förekommande bland patienter inskrivna i psykiatrisk öppenvård. Öronakupunktur är en alternativ behandlingsform som visat sig lindra ångest och depression enligt flera tidigare utförda studier.

Syfte: Utvärdering av öronakupunktur som gruppbehandling vid ångest och depression

Metod: En psykiatrisk öppenvårdsmottagning har erbjudit gruppbehandlingar med öronakupunktur mot ångest och depression under 5 veckor. Deltagarna har svarat på självskattningsskalorna Montgomery Åsberg Depression Rating Scale, Beck Anxiety Inventory och Sheehans funktionskala före respektive efter behandlingsperioden. Material är insamlat mellan 2008-2012, vilket har analyserats med hjälp av SPSS.

Resultat: Data från 31 patienter inkluderades i studien. Efter behandling visades en signifikant skillnad med en sänkning av medelvärdena i de tre olika skalorna.

Slutsats: Utifrån denna studie är det svårt att dra några slutsatser angående öronakupunkturens effekt. Mer studier inom området är önskvärt.

Nyckelord: Acupuncture, anxiety, auricular acupuncture, depression, psychiatric.
