Helping Clinic Staff Talk with Patients about the PHQ-9

Printer-friendly version

This tool is designed to help clinic support staff with answers to common questions they may hear from patients to help increase their comfort talking with patients about the PHQ-9. It’s best for support staff to have the opportunity to role play these with other clinic staff to give them the opportunity to practice before using them with patients. It can also be helpful for support staff to keep this someplace where they can refer to it, as needed, when they get questions from patients.
