Description

PURPOSE: Depression among adolescents is under-identified and undertreated due to challenges within mental health systems and primary care settings, resulting in poor outcomes. This study expands the role of the Pediatric Nurse Practitioner in primary care by redesigning the detection and treatment of depressed adolescents. SUBJECTS: A convenience sample of 25-30 adolescents between the ages of 14-18 will be used. METHODS AND MATERIALS: An evidence-based, 7-session curriculum (“Creating Opportunities for Personal Empowerment” or COPE) with homework utilizing a manualized cognitive behavioral intervention will be implemented in a primary care practice in a Midwestern town. ANALYSES: Outcome measures include: 1) improvement in depression-related outcomes as measured by the PHQ-9 and the Youth Self Report; 2) adolescent satisfaction with care received as measured by the Youth Client Satisfaction Questionnaire; and, 3) a qualitative measure of pediatric primary care provider satisfaction. RESULTS: Data collection and evaluation are in process.
