Partners in Care (PIC) is an integrated approach to improving care for depression in primary care. Its two quality improvement programs — one focusing on medication, the other on psychotherapy — are appropriate for socioeconomically and ethnically diverse populations. This is the Spanish version of the patient education video (RAND/MR-1198/9-AHRQ). This PIC patient education video exactly follows the patient-education brochure (RAND/MR-1198/12-AHRQ), providing additional reinforcement for the patient at home or among family members.
This project was funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), formerly the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR) and was conducted by RAND Health.
