Program Description

Depression is one of the biggest health challenges the world faces. More than 350 million people worldwide suffer from depression. Many patients with depression report cognitive difficulties, and clinicians must be able to properly assess these difficulties when treating patients with major depressive disorder (MDD).

While cognitive dysfunction in MDD may improve with treatment and depressive symptoms may resolve, cognitive deficits can still be detected even in periods of symptom remission. The proportion of time with cognitive complaints was reported as 94% during acute depressive episodes; this remained at 44% despite full or partial symptom remission during treatment.1 Measurement-based assessment tools have helped to quantify the degree of depression; however, these tools continue to be underutilized in everyday practice.2

This NeuroscienceCME Snack features expert faculty offering new perspectives on treating this pervasive disorder and highlighting cognitive deficits as a challenge to clinicians.
