This conference will focus on the implementation of the soon to be released National NICE Guideline for Depression in adults: treatment and management which is currently in draft form, and is due to be published in 2018, following this is expected to be a new Quality Standard. 

“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.
