Nonpharmacologic Interventions for Treatment-Resistant Depression in Adults - Research Review - Final | AHRQ Effective Health Care Program
New Clinician and Consumer Research Summaries Available for Treatment-Resistant Depression
New clinician and consumer research summaries on nonpharamacologic therapies for treatment-resistant depression (TRD) are now available from AHRQ’s Effective Healthcare Program. The summaries are based on the research review, Nonpharmacologic Interventions for Treatment-Resistant Depression in Adults that found insufficient evidence to evaluate the effectiveness of such treatments. The products summarize evidence of the effectiveness and efficacy of four non-pharmacologic treatments: electroconvulsive therapy, repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation, vagus nerve stimulation, and cognitive behavioral therapy or interpersonal psychotherapy. These findings are available in the full review, consumer summary, Therapies for Treatment-Resistant Depression, clinician summary, Nonpharmacologic Interventions for Treatment-Resistant Depression in Adults, CME activity, and a faculty slide set.
