Of course I do. This is merely a tool, not a substitute for good sound medical practice. It should be used as a flag only to give the doctor a heads up that this patient MAY have a problem with depression. Then he can do a further in-depth work up with a referral to a therapist and possibly then a prescription for medication or referral to a psychiatrist.

What do you think of that questionnaire posted on the thread right below the article? Do you think, for example, that the third or fourth item should rank the same number of points as the ninth?
