Depression Treatment in Primary Care Gets a Lift

Leo Robert

Highlights from a recent evidence-based review offer guidance on feasible depression treatments in primary care.

Earlier this year, researchers provided practical evidence-based guidance on diagnosis and treatment of major depressive disorder in primary care in a 2-part review published in the BMJ. In the first part, researchers outlined an approach to effective screening and diagnosis. The second part detailed their approach to treatment of depression in primary care, including recommendations for psychological, pharmacological, and lifestyle interventions and organizational strategies.For highlights of their approach and recommendations for depression treatment from part 2, scroll through the slides below.
