Title Treatment of Depression with Concomitant Chronic Conditions: The Role of Multidisciplinary Primary Care Teams in Improving Outcomes
Date Thursday, September 26, 2013
Time 6:30pm Registration & Buffet Dinner
7:00pm - 9:00pm Presentation
Location Marriott Halls 5&6

Program Overview:
This educational program is designed to inform family practitioners about depression as a concomitant condition with other chronic diseases and the value of screening and treating depression together with these other conditions. It is possible to significantly improve clinical outcomes as well as patient quality of life (QoL) and functionality by effectively treating the depression, and therefore, improving the patient’s concomitant conditions. The utilization of multidisciplinary primary care models will also be discussed. The program will also highlight medication adherence and suggest strategies to improve adherence. It will educate the family practitioner about the need to collaborate with other health care professionals (HCPs) in their practices to provide enhanced patient care and management.

Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

  • Recognize depression as a frequent concomitant condition in patients with other chronic conditions
  • Develop skills to screen for depression, including key validated instruments, and how to incorporate screening for depression into FP practices
  • Apply basic differences between therapeutic classes of antidepressant drugs, their FDA indications, and the use of antidepressants with other agents for concomitant conditions
  • Define strategies for patient education and communication, employing their practice’s full resources, including other HCPs who have other HCPs
