DEPRESSD Webinar - Addressing overestimation of prevalence based on self-report questionnaires: Are there cost-effective alternatives?
The DEPRESSD Team is planning to host a series of webinars for project collaborators and other interested researchers and clinicians.
The first webinar will cover the topic: Addressing overestimation of prevalence based on self-report questionnaires: Are there cost-effective alternatives?
The presentation will:
- demonstrate why using screening questionnaires to estimate prevalence can overestimate prevalence and blur distinctions between low- and high-prevalence populations
- discuss possible strategies for generating prevalence estimates
- describe how a two-stage estimation method that combines screening questionnaires and diagnostic interviews can reduce resource requirements and generate valid prevalence estimates for depression
