Shared decision making focusing on antidepressants

24 Sep 2021
Medicines Optimisation Workshops
Shared decision making focusing on antidepressants
The speaker will discuss decision-making as a principle and how it might be applied in busy practice to depression and its symptoms. He will discuss some of the misperceptions about this common yet disabling condition, the treatment options, the optimum use of effective antidepressants, and what service users may consider important aspects to know (e.g. whether they work, how quickly, side effects, relapse prevention, suicidal ideation, dependence potential, concerns about whether psychological therapies are better). Finally he will discuss the recent failed NICE guidelines and TAs on depression and esketamine and then outline some resources and support available.
