The Managing Patients with Anxiety and Depression in Primary Care Tool was developed using the Centre for Effective Practice’s (CEP’s) integrated knowledge translation approach. This approach ensures that providers are engaged throughout the development processes through the application of user-centered design methodology. Clinical leadership of the resource was provided by Dr. Sharon Bal. End users and clinical experts were also engaged to provide feedback.
The tool is one of several clinical tools developed as part of the Knowledge Translation in Primary Care Initiative. This tool has been endorsed by Ontario College of Family Physicians (OCFP) and Nurse Practitioners’ Association of Ontario (NPAO). Funded by the Ministry of Health, this initiative supports primary care providers with the development of a series of clinical tools and health information resources.
