Promdep clinical trial

Posted on:

The Promdep study looks at whether giving individualised personal feedback to people being treated for depression can help them get better more quickly.

This is consistent with a general trend towards involving people more in their own care, through the use of patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) which involve patients assessing their own symptoms, daily functioning and quality of life and feeding back to the professionals involved in their care.

Benefit has been shown from the use of PROMs in specialist psychological and psychiatric practice, but this approach has not been researched in UK general practice yet.
