Anxiety Disorders and Depression in Adults

Canadians are reporting increased moderate to severe anxiety and feelings of depression since the start of the pandemic. With more people seeking help for their mental health needs, clinicians need easy access to point-of-care tools that reflect the most up-to-date and relevant evidence.

  • Embeds quality standards into hospital health information systems (HIS) to support how clinicians work with the patient population at individual hospitals.
  • Supports hospitals to launch PHQ-9 and GAD-7 digital assessment tools to help clinicians access and complete timely patient information, improve care coordination, and promote their patients’ quality of life.
  • Enhances hospital information given to patients and primary care clinicians with improved discharge summaries that help patients transition out of hospital.
  • Offers hospital sites project management support, leadership through clinical informatics and funding to support this work.

“In spite of the growing evidence that measurement-based care (MBC) enhances treatment outcomes it remains underutilized across hospital and community mental health programs. E2P, a fundamental Program to attain this goal, is one of many initiatives that I am proud to be a part of.”
