From Depression to Wellness in MDD
In primary care, a sizable number of patients have major depressive disorder (MDD). Of these, up to three quarters are either not treated or incompletely treated. This lack of proper treatment leads to significant reduction in quality of life and carries with it increased risk of morbidity and mortality. This CME activity focuses on how to identify patients with MDD, how to quantify severity, and delves into the process of treating to complete wellness, which is beyond remission and into well-being that is resilient to recurrence.
After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Improve diagnosis of MDD
- Implement patient-centered treatment approaches to promote physical, emotional and cognitive wellness
- Change practice systems to improve diagnosis, achieve remission, and return patients to complete wellness
