Resumen

VAZQUEZ, Fernando L. et al. Prevention of depression in caregivers through conference calls. Clínica y Salud [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.1, pp.14-20. ISSN 2174-0550.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5093/clysa2018a2.

The aim of this study was to evaluate a brief intervention, implemented via conference call, for non-professional caregivers with high depressive symptoms. Sixty-one caregivers (M = 55.5, 90.2% women) underwent an intervention of indicated prevention. The incidence of depression, depressive symptoms, the risk of developing depression, and model variables in which the intervention was based were assessed by independent evaluators at the pre-intervention, post-intervention, and 1- and 3-months of follow-up. The incidence of depression at 3-month follow-up was 4.9%. There was a significant reduction in depressive symptomatology (p < .001) and the risk of developing depression (p < .001) after the intervention and at 1- and 3-months of follow-up. The model variables improved significantly after the intervention and were associated with post-intervention depressive symptoms. Adherence and satisfaction with the intervention were high. The results encourage the performance of a randomized controlled trial.
