FAST FACTS

Self‐report depression screening and measurement instruments can be powerful tools in assisting primary care providers with detecting depression in their patient population, diagnosing depression, and monitoring treatment response. There is modest support for the PHQ-9 and its use among Hispanics in primary care for the purpose of depression screening and monitoring. In a large sample of treatment‐seeking Hispanics in primary care (N = 499), we found distinct profiles of depression based on PHQ-9 responses which indicate varying clinical presentations and reporting of depression, highlighting the importance of looking beyond depression measurement summary scores and examining specific symptoms experienced by patients during treatment.
