Dementia: A NICE-SCIE Guideline on Supporting People With Dementia and Their Carers in Health and Social Care

This guideline has been developed to advise on supporting people with dementia and their carers in health and social care. The guideline recommendations have been developed by a multidisciplinary team of health and social care professionals, a person with dementia, carers and guideline methodologists after careful consideration of the best available evidence. It is intended that the guideline will be useful to practitioners and service commissioners in providing and planning high-quality care for those with dementia while also emphasising the importance of the experience of care for people with dementia and carers.

Screening for Depression in Adults and Older Adults in Primary Care: An Updated Systematic Review [Internet]

Depression causes significant suffering and is commonly seen in primary care. Because primary care providers sometimes fail to identify patients as depressed, systematic screening programs in primary care may be of use in improving outcomes in depressed patients. Depression screening is predicated on the notion that identification will allow effective treatments to be delivered and that the benefits of treatment will outweigh the harms. Treatment efficacy of antidepressants and psychotherapy in general adult populations was established in a previous United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSFT) review on depression screening, but treatment in older adults was not examined specifically. Additionally, harms of screening and treatment were not previously examined in detail.

Remission, dropouts, and adverse drug reaction rates in major depressive disorder: a meta-analysis of head-to-head trials

The authors concluded that remission rates are highest and drop-out rates are lowest with serotonin-norepinephrine re-uptake inhibitors compared with selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors and tricyclic antidepressants, suggesting that they are clinically superior for treating major depression. These conclusions should be treated with caution as they are not based on comparisons of treatments within trials.
