This conference will focus on the implementation of the New National NICE Guideline for Depression in adults: treatment and management which is currently in draft form and due to be published early in 2018, followed by a new Quality Standard later in the year. 

“New and updated recommendations have been included on organisation and delivery of services, access to services, the treatment of new depressive episodes, further-line treatment of depression, chronic depression, depression with co-morbidities and relapse prevention.

Although the evidence base is rapidly expanding there are a number of major gaps, and further revisions of this guideline will incorporate new scientific evidence as it develops. The guideline makes a number of research recommendations specifically to address gaps in the evidence base. In the meantime, it is hoped that the guideline will assist clinicians, people with depression and their carers by identifying the merits of particular treatment approaches where the evidence from research and clinical experience exists.” NICE Guideline Draft for Depression in adults: treatment and management 18 July 2017.

Throughout the day this event will systematically focus on the prominent areas highlighted in the current Guidelines Draft  by looking at current research,  best practice, pharmacological vs psychological interventions and the importance of patient involvement.
