Professor Jane Gunn discusses research into a self-administered tool for depression. This RCT showed that ‘Target-D’, a person-centred clinical prediction tool and e-health platform matching management options to prognosis, results in greater improvement in depressive symptoms at 3 months than usual care. Target-D is administered via a set of questions on a tablet in the waiting room. Within minutes patients receive feedback and a suggestion of next steps for treatment. This approach could feasibly be implemented in routine practice to support more efficient and effective depression care without adding to GPs’ workload.
