Comparison Study of Family Practice Interventions for Depression in Adults
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Treatments||treatment as usual, internet intervention, depression treatment pathway|
|Sponsor||AHS Cancer Control Alberta|
|Collaborator||Addiction & Mental Health Strategic Clinical Network|
|Start date||November 2013|
|End date||June 2016|
|Trial size||4500 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01975207, AMH-SCN-01|
To determine if treatment of significant depressive symptoms identified in individuals attending a family practice improves either psychiatric outcome, overall health care costs, or Quality of Life (QOL). Two previously developed treatment approaches - an internet-based approach and a comprehensive depression pathway - will be compared to two control groups (those who have treatment as usual after screening for depression and measurement of QOL, and a second control group who will have QOL data only collected). The investigators hope to help Alberta Health Services identify which approach is best as rapidly as possible so that the best approach can be implemented throughout the province of Alberta.
