Patient-Centered Depression Care for African Americans
Recruitment status was: Recruiting
The investigators propose to answer the following research question: Does a multifaceted, culturally tailored intervention that focuses on the specific concerns and preferences of African American patients with depression and their primary care providers improve the processes and outcomes of care for African Americans to a greater degree than a standard state-of-the art depression intervention?
This study will determine whether two new educational programs can improve the care for depression in African Americans. These programs may include visits with a depression case manager and access to educational materials, such as a videotape, a calendar, pamphlets, and books. One program is a standard quality improvement program for depression that has been shown to be effective in most patients. The other program is similar, but has materials that focus more on the patient’s specific culture, beliefs, values, and preferences.
