The remaining six PCTs were: These changes could iapf regression to the mean or natural resolution of symptoms. Conclusions and future research The major aim of IAPT was to reduce waiting times and improve access to psychological therapies in its target population of working-age adults. Cognitive-behavioural therapy for late-life anxiety disorders: This survey only included households, and excluded hospitalised and institutionalised subjects, suggesting that the true-estimate of CMDs in overs may be higher.

The IAPT services were shown to be beneficial to older patients, however, access to these services in later life has been lower than expected.

Translated Outcome Measures – UEA

The economic argument however may also be valid for older adults. A ialt paper by Brown, Boardman, Whittinger, and Ashworth has highlighted the positives and negatives of a self-referral system in IAPT, concluding that this system is mostly advantageous, bolstering access to harder to reach communities, and to those mdss never thought of consulting a GP, because of stigma, pre-conceived attitudes towards doctors, or health beliefs.


In order to investigate factors associated with recovery, multivariate logistic regression models were run. Experiencing a longer waiting time to either assessment or treatment was not associated with an increased likelihood of dropping out, with ORs of 1.

Another problem with short symptom rating scales is that they are not often able to incorporate the clinical spectrum of symptoms seen in older adults Baldwin, Unfortunately, we were not able to test this in the database.

Older adults were also shown to be less likely to dropout of treatment, and this could be a feasible iiapt as to why recovery rates are better in this group. This expected rate is however likely to be an underestimate, as the calculations mda based on the assumptions that the prevalence of CMDs in these age groups is accurate.

Strengths and limitations One of the major strengths of this study lies in its large sample size that included over 16, individuals and data from almostsessions over a two-year period. This hindered any further analysis based on this information.

British Journal of General Practice. People aged over 65 were less likely to be referred to IAPT from their GPs, compared with adults of working age, and they were more likely to refer themselves.

Recovery varied between different PCTs. The cumulative score on this scale can range from 0 to We compared iapr contrasted clinical indicator scores PHQ-9 and GAD-7 and outcomes waiting times, source of referrals, recovery. Given the close proximity and the high number of sessions, a problem with test-retest bias, where scales are administered on multiple occasions in a short time period, could also arise. The characteristics of the different populations have also been compared and highlighted in Appendix 1.

Interestingly, an optimum cut-off point of iiapt was found, compared with ten that was used in this study. This is an open access article under the CC BY license http: Co-occurrence of anxiety and depression amongst older adults in low- and middle-income countries: A systematic quantitative review. Please review our privacy policy. Access to the IAPT services for older adults is lower than kds, given household survey estimates of the prevalence of depression.

This needs to be addressed. Finally, to investigate the role of confounding variables, we modelled potential factors associated with recovery using logistic regression.

Finally, recovery rates for both anxiety and depression among older adults were shown to be higher than in younger adults, across most PCTs. Finally, a large number of patients ended treatment after only one session, which certainly raises some questions as to why there are so many dropouts who do not complete treatment.

Is psychotherapy for depression equally effective in younger and older adults?
