Abstract

PURPOSE: This paper describes evaluation findings associated with an innovative, CD-based, self-directed training program that was designed to improve general practice nurses' abilities to identify and care for older adults with depression.

DESIGN AND METHODS: A voluntary sample of nurses completed an evaluation that focused on participants' perceptions of changes in their knowledge and skills and usefulness of the program.

FINDINGS: Quantitative items received high ratings, and narrative responses to open-ended questions were largely positive.

PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS: Many opportunities exist for psychiatric nurses to facilitate, support, and extend training principles to promote late-life depression recognition and treatment.
