  1. Hi Keith:

    Read about your presentation and it sounds very interesting but thought: you’ve not invited the most important part of the team to present…THE PATIENT. I wondered if you have, in your experience, someone that would “qualify” to represent patients from the patients point of view and would be a facilitator of sorts in the process of both answering questions and being able to field questions among the registrants?

    Too bad I live too far away to attend, sounds interesting.

    • Hi Elizabeth,
      This is a very thoughtful suggestion, thank you.
      The particular workshop is very methodologically based hence no patient. I do have plans along these lines for a workshop later in the year which I’m very happy to discuss off-line.
      Again thanks for your comment.

  2. Good article – I was enlightened by the insight – Does someone know if I might be able to obtain a sample PHQ-9 A2663B document to edit ?
