Learning Objective
Upon completion, participants should be able to:

  • Identify clinical recommendations and practical methods to diagnose and manage MDD with cognitive symptoms

Target Audience
This activity is intended for family medicine and primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.
 
Statement of Need
Depression is a common and disabling illness often encountered in primary care. In their role as a patient’s first contact for healthcare needs, primary care practitioners are well suited to screen for and manage major depressive disorder (MDD) in everyday practice. They must be adept not only at diagnosing MDD but also at developing individualized treatment plans that focus on achieving remission. For this reason, it is important that they are able to implement measurement-based care that incorporates appropriate psychometric tools to diagnose MDD and assess treatment response over time so that they can make timely adjustments to care and return patients to full function as efficiently as possible.
