Open Forum Events and Ethypharm Digital Therapy invites you to join us at A New Light on the Management of Depression in the ICS Era conference which will provide an insight to the challenges being faced daily in managing depression across the system and discuss potential solutions.
This event will bring together expert speakers from across the healthcare sector who will offer greater insight to the challenges and solutions to support attendees within their roles.
The current experience for patients with depression is mixed and often there are regional inequalities of access to care and limited treatment options. There is still an over reliance on medication and talking therapies offer a positive option but waiting times and treatment success rates still mean that improvements in managing patients need to be made.
Primary care is heavily burdened by managing depressed patients with many requiring frequent appointments and a 10-minute appointment can often run much longer disrupting clinics and other patients. A New Light on the Management of Depression seeks to explore the scale of the issue, analyse current best practice and offer new solutions to address the growing population need for clinically effective alternatives. New approaches will be explored under the lens of meeting the new NICE guidelines for depression and implementing change within the new ICS organisations.
Book your place today at the A New Light on the Management of Depression in the ICS Era conference and join like-minded peers to explore how mental health service providers can be better equipped to provide the necessary support to such a high number of patients.
This talk will focus on our work establishing what happens to people experiencing depression in terms of care across Europe (current-care) in comparison with best-practice care as delineated in management guidelines. I will consider the impacts of the pandemic on care for depression, and the impacts of mitigation strategies employed in services to overcome disruptions to care for depression.
