CPNP 2017 PsychU Presentation: "Improving The Recognition & Treatment Of Major Depressive Disorder In The Primary Care Setting"
Date & Time: Tuesday, April 25, 2017 from 12:00pm - 2:00pmMST

Description: Given that nearly 60% of patients treated for depression in the United States receive treatment in the primary care setting, it is of the utmost importance for clinicians to understand how to adequately recognize and treat the symptoms of depression. This program will discuss the under-diagnosis of major depressive disorder, the barriers to patients receiving appropriate treatment in the primary care setting, and the potential consequences of inadequate treatment. Strategies to improve recognition and overcome barriers to treatment will be reviewed.
