شیوع بیماری کرونا ویروس 2019 ، به عنوان یک بیماری همه گیر اپیدمی ، مردم را به سمت مشکلات جسمی و روانی سوق داده است. مطالعات اخیر در مورد اثرات روانشناختی COVID-19 نشان داده است که ، اضطراب سلامتی و همچنین احساسات منفی ناشی از اپیدمی COVID-19 ، از نظر جسمی و روحی بر سلامت بیمار تأثیر گذاشته است. این مطالعه با هدف بررسی آسیب شناسی روانی و نیمرخ آسیب شناسی روانی شخصیت بیماران تحت درمان با بیماری COVID-19 و همچنین عوامل مهم مربوط در روند بهبودی بیماران در ایران انجام شده است.
روش: 30 بیمار درمان شده با COVID-19 به طور تصادفی و داوطلبانه انتخاب شدند و به پرسشنامه شخصیت چند وجهی مینه سوتا -نسخه دوم بازسازی شده (MMPI-2-rf) پاسخ دادند.
یافته ها: این مطالعه نشان داد که بیماران درمان شده با COVID-19 در مقیاس های آسیا شناسی روانی و آسیب شناسی شخصیت MMPI-2-rf طبیعی هستند. از آنجا که هیچ اختلالی در آسیب شناسی روانی و نیمرخ آسیب شناسی شخصیت بیماران مشاهده نشد. این مطالعه همچنین نشان داد که بیماران درمان شده با بیماری COVID-19 از مشکلات جسمی / شناختی مانند درد سر ، مشکلات گوارشی و عصبی رنج می برند.
نتیجه گیری: اضطراب ، افسردگی ، احساسات منفی و همچنین احساسات مثبت پایین از فاکتورهای مهم نه تنها در عفونت بلکه در روند بهبود بیماری COVID-19 هستند. از آنجا که احساسات و ترس منفی از عوامل مهم در ابتلا به COVID-19 هستند ، خودکنترلی و بهنجاری در نیمرخ آسیب شناسی روانشناختی از عوامل مهم در روند بهبود هستند.
