In the April 4, 2016 edition of Part B News, Rebecca Gwilt talks about integration of behavioral health care into acute and primary care settings.

"For individual physicians, simply instituting a process to administer basic depression screening is an easy first step,” says Gwilt. That might be the kind of depression screening attached to annual wellness visits, which may be quite simple (PBN 3/14/16). Or you can kick it up a notch with something like the PHQ-9 (Patient Health Questionnaire depression eval), the 15-item Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS) or the 20-item Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D)."
