Diagnostic Accuracy of Screening Tests and Treatment for Post–Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) Depression: A Systematic Review is organized by American College of Physicians (ACP) and will be held during Apr 23, 2018 - Nov 14, 2020. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits and MOC Points.

Course Description:
Patients who have had an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) event have an increased risk for depression. This systematic review endeavors to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of depression screening instruments and to compare safety and effectiveness of depression treatments in adults within 3 months of an ACS event.

Depression screening instruments produce diagnostic accuracy metrics that are similar in post-ACS patients and other clinical populations. Depression interventions have an uncertain effect on cardiovascular outcomes, but CBT combined with antidepressant medication produces modest improvement in psychosocial outcomes.

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
