Managing Depression and Anxiety in the outpatient setting

Depression and anxiety needs concise assessment at the outpatient setting. Some patients who receive care at outpatient clinics may be challenged with depression/anxiety and/or other mental health disorders as well as with chronic complex medical conditions. These patients may find it very challenging to manage both conditions. They may feel comfortable to talk about their medical conditions to their providers and not their mental health struggles. They may turn to under-reports or do not report their mental health struggles to their providers. The behaviors/attitudes of patients in under-reporting their mental health challenges may affect their general overall management of their health. I would like student(s) who are interested in this topic to do something along the lines of a qualitative interview with physicians and patients about barriers to the assessment and management of anxiety and/or depression in primary care. Student (s) may like to identify common themes in these barriers, which in turn, could lead to suggestible/recommendable ideas for intervention.

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that Cbeam will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, Cbeam's distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevancies with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements.

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. Cbeam could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
    demonstration
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
