The Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) - English & Spanish Language

The Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) - English & Spanish Language

The Patient Health Questionnaire contains a Brief, 9-item, patient self-report Depression assessment specifically developed for use in primary care (PHQ-9). The PHQ-9 has demonstrated usefulness as an assessment tool for the diagnosis of depression in primary care with acceptable reliability, Validity, sensitivity, and specificity. The nine items of the PHQ-9 come directly from the nine DSM-IV signs and symptoms of major depression. Patients should not be diagnosed solely on the basis of a PHQ-9 score. The clinician should corroborate the score with clinical determination that a significant depressive syndrome is present. After making a provisional diagnosis with the PHQ-9, there are additional clinical considerations that may affect decisions about management and treatment.

In addition to its use as a diagnostic instrument, the PHQ-9 can also be used as a depression severity tool for monitoring treatment. With possible scores ranging from 0 to 27, higher scores are correlated with other measures of depression severity.
