Description

In this module, we will review the special challenges of communicating with depressed patients. Clinicians need special skills to meet the many challenges of depression assessment and depression management in the general medical setting. In addition, clinicians who treat depression successfully will also feel the professional gratification that comes from helping patients feel better in enhancing their quality of life and improving their general medical prognosis.

Diplomate Engagement

Self-assessment questions tailored to each specific module topic are required upon module completion. Multiple choice questions required; open-ended discussion questions are optional.
