Evaluation Of Emotional Conditions of Patients with Rheumatic Diseases Who Participated in Cognitive Exercise Therapy Approach Through Telerehabilitation with respect to the course of COVID-19 outbreak in Turkey

Taştekin, Elif
Cognitive Exercise Therapy Approach (CETA) is an innovative exercise method that approaches patients from biological, social, and psychological perspectives. It takes advantage of physical exercises and cognitive therapy in a way to support each other. This study investigates the emotional states of patients with rheumatic diseases who participated in CETA during the Coronavirus outbreak and the quarantine period in 2020 and 2021 in Turkey. CETA has been applied to a group of patients for some time through WhatsApp group text messages. The program includes physical and verbal exercises. The data consists of the personal declarations of the patients on their emotional statuses. In this study, a period from the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak in Turkey, which is March 2020 to July 2021 is examined in accordance with the course of COVID-19 pandemic in Turkey. The most significant determinant of the general well-being of the patients is non-transparency in the healthcare system.
