Abstract

INTRODUCTION: PRIME-MD (Primary Cave Evaluation of Mental Disorder) has been developed to detect the most frequent mental disorders in general practice,METHOD: A prevalence study with the Danish PRIME-MD's module for major depression was carried out by general practitioners. In total, 16 practices and 2501 patients were involved in the shiny. RESULTS: The patient questionnaire part of the PRIME-MD was completed by move than 95% of the patients, indicating a high applicability. Around 8% ofall patients included suffered from major depression, Of these, the ratio of females to males was 2:1, Three factors were identified in the questionnaire: depression, psychosomatic distress, and alcohol use. Compared to the non-depressed patients, the patients with major depression evaluated their health condition as being considerably impaired. CONCLUSION: PRIME-MD is highly applicable in general practice.
