The Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) developed by Pfizer Inc. has proven to be an excellent means of monitoring levels of severity of depression over time. This questionnaire is a patient, self-administered instrument and is available here by permission of Pfizer in both English and Spanish.

During the course of monitoring patient adherence to depression treatment plans, care managers utilize a variety of forms that both assist in the collection and summarization of information about individual patient status. These forms also provide an essential means of coordinating communication for care managers and clinicians. (click here to download Acrobat Reader for PDFs)
