Live Event – All Hands On Deck In The Treatment Of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD): A Focus On Measurement-Based Care In Psychiatry & Primary Care

This is a Live Event for PsychU members in Connecticut.

Given the current state of affairs, primary care providers are increasingly treating patients with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). During this panel presentation, Drs. Joseph Goldberg, and C. Brendan Montano will be discussing the prevalence and burden of MDD within the Tri-State region, with an emphasis on Connecticut, and the impact of COVID-19 on MDD. Additionally, the speakers will discuss barriers faced by primary care providers and include the perspectives and expertise from psychiatrists. Finally, the presenters will consider the potential role of measurement-based care, focusing on the strategies incorporated in their practices and discussing methods of collaboration.

Objectives:

  • Discuss the prevalence and burden of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) locally and nationally, including the impact of COVID-19
  • Identify gaps between primary care and psychiatry within treatment of MDD
  • Understand the potential role and importance of measurement-based care (MBC)
