From the Publisher:     

Although depression is a major cause of illness and disability, the quality of care offered is often poor. Research evidence demonstrating how the quality of primary care can be improved is dispersed in different academic journals and written in technical jargon. Depression in Primary Care: Evidence and Practice summarizes this research in a clear and useable format. This collection of high quality reviews of research evidence takes the form of a series of clinical and economic evaluations. Each provides a clear summary of the best evidence from trials and an accessible 'how to do it' guide, written by international experts. Global approaches towards the organization and delivery of primary care for depression are presented, from the UK, North America, Europe and the developing world. An important source of practical guidance about how to implement quality improvement programs in clinical practice, this book will assist practitioners, researchers and policy makers alike.

Features:

Combines clear evidence summaries with a simple and practical guide about how to implement quality improvement programmes in practice
Prepared by international experts and of interest and relevance in all countries and healthcare settings
Addresses a major healthcare priority identified by the World Health Organization, US Agency for Healthcare Research and UK National Institute for Clinical Excellence
