Integrated Care Strategies to Address the Impact of Residual Symptoms on Functional Outcomes in MDD

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Depression is one of the leading causes of disability worldwide. It affects individuals, families, businesses, and society and is common in patients seeking care in the primary care setting. Approximately 55% of patients will respond to treatment with the initial antidepressant. Yet, even in those patients who respond to treatment and achieve remission, residual symptoms can significantly inhibit functionality and increase the risk of relapse and recurrence.

Despite these challenges, MDD can be effectively managed, particularly when the clinician and patient mutually define what remission means to the patient and work together towards achieving sustained remission.

This archive of a CME Outfitters symposium on MDD features expert faculty offering new perspectives on treating this pervasive disorder, highlights residual symptoms as a challenge to clinicians, and ways to engage with patients to optimize management of all symptoms.
