Wisconsin Collaborative for Healthcare Quality (WCHQ) Behavioral Health Steering Team developed a Depression Screening and Treatment Toolkit intended for providers and the administrative staff in a primary care setting serving adult populations.
The toolkit is a practical, usable tool for quick referencing and adoption. Two workflows are contained in the toolkit:
- one for clinical providers with step-by-step instructions on depression screening and treatment options;
- one for administrative staff related to special operational considerations for the implementation, documentation and tracking of depression screening.
There is also a robust addendum with tools that supplement the workflows; including medication augmentation strategies, behavioral health billing codes, a suicide ideation policy, and patient health screeners.
