ROGERS Anissa, BARUSCH Amanda
Journal article citation:
Journal of Gerontological Social Work, 34(2), 2001, pp.23-38.

This study was conducted to determine the extent to which service providers in a community-based care programme in the USA accurately identified and referred elders with symptoms of depression. Interviews were conducted with 79 frail, low-income elders. Reviews of their case files were then conducted to determine first, the extent to which case managers recognised depressive symptoms and second, the extent to which respondents who screened with significant symptoms were referred for mental health services. Results suggest an imperfect association between symptoms and case managers' perceptions and referrals.
