Statement of Need

Primary care has become the point-of-care where most people seek treatment for depression, and effort to improve depression outcomes in primary care have focused on improved screening and implementation of collaborative and measurement-based care. However, a recent study showed that only 35.7% of patients diagnosed with depression had treatment initiated, despite the demonstrated value of consistently monitoring and measuring symptomatology and daily functioning of patients with depression. Measurement-based care strategies are essential to provide the best chance for successful treatment and sustained remission.

In part 2 of this free CME Outfitters Snack series, expert faculty present an engaging, focused video discussion using the ArchViewer platform to discuss a measured approach to screening and treating depression including the feasibility, necessity, and effectiveness of these practices to enhance patient care.
