Professor Vikram Patel and Dr. John Naslund of the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School with colleagues at Sangath are leading an important project to develop a brief online measure of non-specialist health worker competence for delivering evidence-based psychological treatments for depression in primary care facilities in low-resource settings in India.
As part of this work, their team is conducting a short survey to test and refine the different items that may be included as part of the measure. With this survey, we are reaching out to clinicians, students, health workers, and those not in health care fields who have both had training or who do not have any training in delivering psychological treatments for depression. It is important that we have a mix of individuals who are familiar with delivering psychological depression treatments and those who are not at all familiar to answer the survey questions.
We would be very grateful if you would be willing to answer these questions. We would also be delighted if you would be willing to share our survey within your network and with other colleagues, students or others who may be interested. Thank you for your help. Any questions please reach out to ESSENCE Research Assistant, Juliana Lynn Restivo at Harvard Medical School.
This online survey is completely anonymous, and your participation is entirely voluntary. If you are interested in answering our survey, please follow this link: https://hms.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_789dOjmme3tfXGR
