VIrtual: UR CTSI Seminar - Yeates Conwell

Clinical depression is a common disorder in later life associated with myriad adverse outcomes. Although antidepressant medications are a first-line treatment for reducing symptoms, achieving remission, and mitigating the impact of the illness, there is controversy about their effectiveness. Two randomized controlled trials of a depression care management intervention that included standardized antidepressant administration to older adults in rural and urban Chinese primary care patients with depression yielded different results. Their comparison reinforces the potential benefits of antidepressant medication for late-life depression and underscores the importance of adherence to treatment effectiveness.

Join via Zoom

At the conclusion of this presentation participants should be able to:

  • Discuss the epidemiology of depression in older adults
  • Appreciate the role that antidepressant medications play in treatment
  • Understand the impact of treatment adherence on outcomes of late-life depression in China
