Resilience and its correlates in patients with narcolepsy type 1

The results of this study support the hypothesis that narcolepsy symptoms are not the only determinants of the QoL impairment experienced by people with NT1 and that resilience may have a key role in patients’ adaptation to the disease. In line with patients’ request for a more holistic approach to their care, the study supports the testing of early interventions in order to increase patients’ resilience and help them to better adapt to the disorder. Our results also encourage further studies, preferably with a longitudinal design and including objective measures, aimed at clarifying the relationship between resilience, depression, and QoL in patients with narcolepsy and other chronic disorders.
