Aile Hekimliği Uzmanlarının Depresyon Tedavi̇si̇ne Bakışı

Ozet
Amaç: Depresyon tedavisinde bilişsel davranışçı terapi ve farmakoterapi deneysel olarak etkinliği kanıtlanmış tedavilerdir. Çalışmamızda depresyonlu hastaların başvurduğu Aile Hekimliği Uzmanlarının depresyon tedavisine yaklaşımları araştırıldı.
Yöntem: Araştırmaya 29 Ekim 2008 - 29Aralık 2008 tarihleri arasında ulaşılan 100 Aile Hekimliği Uzmanı katıldı. Aile Hekimliği Uzmanları(AHU)’na 32 sorudan oluşan bir anket uygulandı.
Bulgular: Elde edilen veriler; Betimleyici İstatistik Çalışması, Chi-Square Testi, Mann-Whitney U Testi ve Kruskal-Wallis H testi ile değerlendirildi. Depresyonu olan hastaların psikoterapisinin uzmanlara bırakılması gerektiği ile ilgili soruya “evet” cevabı veren Aile Hekimliği Uzmanları’nın kendilerini depresyonu takip ve tedavide yeterli hissetme düzeyi “hayır” cevabı veren Aile Hekimliği Uzmanları’na göre düşüktür (p=0,026). Ağır depresyon vakalarının temelinde biyokimyasal anormallik yattığı ile ilgili soruya olumlu cevap verme ile psikoterapinin depresyonu olan hastalarda başarısız olma eğilimi olduğu sorusuna olumlu cevap verme arasında anlamlı ilişki saptandı ( p<0,05).
Sonuç: Aile Hekimliği Uzmanları depresyon tedavisinde farmakoterapi yanında psikoterapi de uygulayarak da rol alabilirler. Birinci basamakta görev yapan Aile Hekimliği Uzmanları için Bilişsel Davranışçı Terapi ile ilgili eğitimler düzenlenebilir.
