OBJECTIVES: Few adolescent-specific depression screening instruments have been developed in recent years using multi-method approaches (qualitative and quantitative), and some of those available have limitations with an adolescent audience. We describe the development of a potential measure - the Taouk Scale for Adolescent Depression. METHODS: Draft items were informed by findings from focus groups and reviews by adolescents and healthcare professionals, resulting in a provisional 97-item scale...

Depression slows wound healing in patients with chronic wounds. The prevalence of depressive symptoms differs in the literature and the current understandings of factors related to depression in patients with wounds have been limited. To investigate the prevalence of depressive symptoms and the associated factors in patients with wounds, we performed this retrospective study in which depressive symptoms were evaluated with the Patient Health Questionnaire 9-item (PHQ-9). Valid PHQ-9 scores were collected from 222 patients (112 males and 110 females; age: 64...

OBJECTIVE: Depression is the most prevalent mental health condition in primary care (PC). Yet as the Veterans Health Administration increases resources for PC/mental health integration, including integrated care for women, there is little detailed information about depression care needs, preferences, comorbidity, and access patterns among women veterans with depression followed in PC. METHODS: We sampled patients regularly engaged with Veterans Health Administration PC...

Introduction Patients with advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD) on haemodialysis (HD) may have increased C reactive protein (CRP) values and depressive symptoms. There is debate about the strength and nature of previously reported associations. We investigated these issues in a cohort of patients on HD. Methods We screened for depressive symptoms using two valadiated depression screening tools: the Beck Depression Inventory-II (BDI-II), Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9). Demographic and clinical correlates of depression symptoms were eveluated in adjusted linear and logistic regression models, which included extra renal comorbidity and high CRP (>5 mg/L)...

BACKGROUND: Postpartum depression (PPD) causes significant morbidity in postpartum women and their newborns. Universal screening is mandated in many states despite little information on optimal interval and frequency of screening. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to determine whether the early Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS) score (done within 96h after delivery) is predictive of the late EPDS score (done at outpatient postpartum visit). STUDY DESIGN: This retrospective cohort study selected 256 women delivered at Cooper University Hospital in Camden, NJ in 2013...

BACKGROUND: Trajectories of depression over time may be heterogeneous in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients. Describing these trajectories will help clinicians understand better the progression of depression in MS patients to aid in patient care decisions. METHODS: Latent class growth analysis (LCGA) was applied to 3507 MS patients using an electronic health records (EHR) data base to identify subgroups of MS patients based on self-reported depression screening (PHQ-9)...

OBJECTIVE: An American Heart Association (AHA) Science Advisory recommends patients with coronary heart disease undergo routine screening for depressive symptoms with the two-stage Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ). However, little is known on the prognostic impact of a positive PHQ screen on heart failure (HF) mortality. METHODS: We screened hospitalized patients with systolic HF (left ventricle ejection fraction≤40%) for depression with the two-item Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-2) and administered the follow-up nine-item Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) both immediately following the PHQ-2 and by telephone 1 month after discharge...

OBJECTIVE: To assess depressive symptoms in men deprived from freedom in a prison in a Colombian intermediate city. MATERIAL AND METHOD: A cross sectional study was performed on a sample of three hundred and three patients in the Medium Security penitentiary and Prison Facility of the city of Manizales between April and May 2014. The information was collected through the Zung self-rating depression scale (SDS), subsequently there were established the positive results for depression screening according to the final score of the scale...

INTRODUCTION: The objective of this study was to explore associations between presenting chief complaints of prolonged symptomatology, patient usage of the emergency department (ED), and underlying depression so that emergency physicians may better target patients for depression screening. METHODS: A convenience sample of ED patients were administered the Beck Depression Inventory-II (BDI-II) to assess for depression. We correlated completed BDI-II surveys to patient information including demographics, pertinent history of present illness information, and past medical history...

BACKGROUND: Depression after stroke is common and is associated with poor functional recovery, suicidal ideation, decreased quality of life, and increased mortality. Despite this knowledge, poststroke depression (PSD) is often underdetected and thus undertreated. PSD is clinically important for the caregiver, the family, and the stroke survivor. Inconsistencies in screening and treatment practices may further contribute to these negative outcomes. PURPOSE: The purposes of this evidence-based clinical scholarship project were to (1) determine the efficacy of an evidence-based depression screening protocol in improving early detection and treatment of PSD and (2) identify if there were any relationships between the protocol interventions, depression scores, and diagnosis...

Major depression is the most prevalent mental disorder and one of the main reasons for disability. To be successful in treating depression, it is necessary to have early identification and intervention. Therefore, it is important to design more objective and more efficient depression screening techniques. Such interventions provided by mobile apps shows promise due to their capabilities to support people in their everyday lives. Until very recently, the design of mental health apps that works effectively in the context of diagnostics had not been widely explored...

Support groups can help individuals cope with difficult health situations but have been understudied for women with perinatal bereavement. An early study suggested those using internet support groups had high rates of positive depression screens, raising the question whether these users were more symptomatic than those in similar face-to-face support groups. We therefore conducted two convenience sample surveys of women bereaved by perinatal loss, one looking at use of online support groups and the other in-person support groups...

PURPOSE: Evidence-based guidelines recommend regular depression screening among individuals with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The purpose of this study is to examine depression screening patterns among a primary care population with T2DM, through use of the Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9). METHODS: In total, 1817 patients with T2DM were analyzed through a retrospective observational study at 2 sites, a regional health center and a federally qualified health center (FQHC)...

BACKGROUND: Stunting indicates failure to attain genetic potential for height and is a well-documented indicator for poor growth. Depression is common in women of reproductive age and women's mental health problems may affect the growth of young children. We examined the association between maternal depression and stunting in mother-child pairs attending Child Welfare Clinic (CWC) in Northern Ghana. METHODS: An analytical cross-sectional study was performed involving mothers (15-45 years) and their children (0-59 months) who attended CWC at Bilpeila Health Centre, Tamale, Ghana...
