Program Description

Major depressive disorder (MDD) is a disturbance of mood that may have persistent and long-term consequences impacting patients’ overall level of functioning and quality of life. Current treatment guidelines recommend an end goal of full remission; despite these recommendations, it is estimated that as few as 24% of patients with MDD receive any treatment, just 9% receive adequate treatment, and only 6% achieve full remission. In order for patients with MDD to achieve remission goals, it is imperative that they receive adequate, appropriate, and comprehensive management. Understanding the impact of residual symptoms, utilizing validated tools for monitoring treatment response, considering novel treatment approaches, and implementing strategies that support patient-provider communication and collaboration will all ultimately improve patient outcomes and support treatment goals.

Intended Audience

This activity is intended for nurse practitioners who treat patients with MDD.

Educational Objectives

At the end of this activity, learners should be better able to:

  • Review the impact of residual major depressive disorder (MDD) symptoms on patient function, quality of life, and long-term outcomes
  • Utilize measurement-based care tactics to effectively monitor and assess symptom resolution in patients receiving therapy for MDD
  • Apply recommended strategies, as set forth by the American Psychiatric Association, in modifying MDD treatment to achieve long-term remission in nonresponders or partial responders to therapy
  • Identify patients with MDD who might benefit from new pharmacologic treatment options while considering safety and efficacy parameters
  • Employ the shared decision-making model (SDM) to foster communication between MDD patients and their healthcare providers
