|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Screening
|Official Title:||Mental Health E-screening in Pregnant and Postpartum Women|
- The primary outcome is feasibility/acceptability of the process of e-screening (vs 'usual' screening). [ Time Frame: 10 months ]All women will complete: 1) the Computer Violence Assessment Evaluation (CVAE) 38 (originally designed The primary outcome is feasibility/acceptability of the process of e-screening (vs 'usual' screening).to evaluate the feasibility/acceptability aspects of e- screening of domestic violence -Appendix C); and 2) open-ended investigator-developed questions on e-screening feasibility currently being pre-tested in another study (Appendix D).
- Proportion of pregnant and postpartum women with clinical depression and anxiety. [ Time Frame: on recruitment ]
Measured in in pregnant women using the Antenatal Psychosocial Health Assessment (ALPHA)and the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale. Measured in pregnant women using the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale.

Mini Diagnostic Interview
-will be conducted either by telephone or in-person by a member of the research team who is a mental health expert
- Cost-effectiveness of e-screening [ Time Frame: during recruitment ]We will observe the clinic process for a morning to determine the length of time it takes staff to conduct the both the usual screening process as well as the e-screening process (e.g., distribute tablets, follow-up with women). We will also interview the clinic manager to determine the costs of current screening process (e.g., time to screen, physical resources).
- Mean scores on the Perceived Risk and Perceived Utility subscales of DES [ Time Frame: on recruitment ]Disclosure Expectations Scale (DES) Self-reported by women
|Study Start Date:||July 2013|
|Study Completion Date:||December 2014|
|Primary Completion Date:||December 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
No Intervention: Paper-based screening
Paper-based screening. Women will complete a mental health screening tool on paper (usual care).
Women will complete mental health screening on a tablet
E-screening will be conducted on a computer tablet with wireless access. The tablet will be configured with the screening tool currently used in each clinic. The content and order of individual questions will be identical to the paper-pen version. Response options will be listed in full view under each question. Women select responses by touching the screen.
