Assessment of depression in geriatric medical outpatients: the validity of two screening measures

Journal of the American Geriatrics Society
J T NorrisC H Winograd


The validity of two screening measures for depression was assessed in a geriatric medical outpatient population. Sixty-eight patients completed both questionnaires; 31 also completed a clinical interview allowing for accurate diagnosis. Both screening measures were found to accurately identify those who were depressed. Clinical and research applications are discussed, including the complementary use of these screening measures with the physician's diagnosis.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells.
