On Sept 25th and 26th, Institute of Population, Health and Development combined with National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology and Dong Da, Thach That health centre organized two workshop orientations for health workers who have work for “Feasibility study in preparation for Randomized Trial of Enhanced Primary Mental Health Care Implementation”.
The workshop orientation had divided into four parts. Firstly, the health care workers and other healthcare providers were provided general information of the project. Subsequently, they were trained to use the questionnaire SRQ20 which can assess the level of depression, and then, WHODAS 2.0 which can determine the impact of depression on their daily life and their work. Finally, “Supported self-management skills workbook” was introduced to them to help their patients to control of their depression at home. During the workshop orientation, our team received some useful comments and feedback from commune health workers, and other healthcare providers, especially how to apply these tools in the community to achieve the highest efficiency.
At the end of the workshop orientation, the health care workers understood how to carry out and participate in the project. At the same time, they gained knowledge and skills in detecting and helping depressive patients to use supported self-management skills workbook.
