Developing the Diabetes Workforce Integrating education, clinical care and service organisation
HIEC - Diabetes Depression: a common problem Type 2 diabetes education: poor uptake
Rationale for more education on depression in diabetes Common: 10% ICD-10 depression Associated with worse biomedical outcomes: HbA1c, complications, mortality May represent worse diabetes Under-detected Under-treated Potentially treatable condition
E-learning development Aim to embed into clinical care
E-learning: techniques Pre-module test: knowledge and confidence Facts and figures: AV presentations Clinical skills: AV presentations and video Integrated management: AV presentations Clinical assessment tool Resources for professionals and patient
Part 1. Depression in diabetes Prevalence of depression in diabetes compared to the general population Risk factors associated with the depression- diabetes link The adverse effects of depression in diabetes
Part 2. Assessing depression in diabetes Clinical features of depression Clinical assessment tools for depression Suicide risk Differential diagnoses
DSM-IV diagnostic criteria for depression Rule of thumb 1: 2 weeks, most days, most of the day Rule of thumb 2: loss of functioning Core symptoms Low mood Anhedonia Additional symptoms Fatigue Appetite loss/weight changes Sleep disturbances Reduced concentration Psychomotor agitation/retardation Suicidal ideation Unworthiness, excessive guilt
Number of symptoms Severity of & functional impairment moderatemildsubclinicalsevere 5-6 symptoms + minor functional impairment 5 symptoms + some functional impairment Severity of & functional impairment moderatemildsubclinicalsevere 5-6 symptoms + minor functional impairment 5 symptoms + some functional impairment 7 symptoms + severe interference with function Depression is a continuous construct
Clinical Assessment Step 1: How to start the interview ? You could start with an opening statement such as: Many people with diabetes are troubled with feeling low in spirits or having anxious or panicky feelings. Have you ever been troubled by these feelings? How would you describe your mental health in recent weeks?
Clinical Assessment Step 2: Eliciting main symptoms Open questions to assess symptoms: Mood How would you describe your mood in recent weeks? Anhedonia Are you able to enjoy your everyday activities as much as usual?
Video First 2 minutes is about low mood. What am I trying to assess?
Clinical Assessment Step 3: Assessing severity Severity of each symptom depends on two features: 1. How distressing/intrusive/disabling 2. How frequent the symptoms Rule of thumb 1: 2 weeks, most days, most of the day Rule of thumb 2: loss of functioning
Video 6 th minute is about unworthiness and excessive guilt
Clinical Assessment Step 4: Eliciting additional symptoms Fatigue Appetite loss Sleep disturbances Reduced concentration Suicidal ideation Unworthiness or excessive guilt Psychomotor agitation Or retardation What is your energy level liked? Has there be any change in your sleep pattern? Has there be any change in your appetite/weight? Have others noticed that you are very restless or slow down? How would you describe your concentration? Have you had thoughts of being worthless or feeling guilty about everything? Have you been wondering if your life is not worth living?
Part 3. Integrated management of depression and diabetes An integrated treatment model Prescribing antidepressants in diabetes Low intensity psychosocial interventions High intensity psychological interventions
