Co-host: Dr. Mike Kirlew
This week, we discuss depression: one of the most common presentations in Family Medicine. I managed to not record my chat with Mike this time around, so you'll need to take our word for it that it was excellent and highly entertaining.
Some points from our chat:
Brief, office-based CBT is a great skill to have to help your depressed patients. An example guide is available at A Therapist's Guide to Brief Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. The University of Calgary also offers a distance-learning certificate in CBT.
The RXFiles offers a very comprehensive comparison of antidepressant medications.
