Continuing Medical Education for Primary Care Physicians: Depression (10 Nov 2018)

October 12, 2018

Depression is a common and under-diagnosed problem in Singapore. There is often a barrier to seek care due to the stigma of having a “mental problem”. Community psychiatry resources have been developed to help reduce this barrier to care. Family physicians are well placed to manage depression well in the community.

The Continuing Medical Education series is specially organised for primary care physicians to improve care for the elderly in the community.
