Resumen

RODRIGUEZ-MUNOZ, Fe et al. Postpartum Depression Screening Scale Short Form: is it possible to use it for antenatal depression?. Clínica y Salud [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.3, pp.147-150. ISSN 2174-0550.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5093/clysa2018a21.

The aim of this study was to obtain the construct validity of the short form of the Postpartum Depression Scale (PDSS-SF) for screening antenatal depression symptoms by means of the Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9) as a gold standard. The sample consisted of 449 pregnant women recruited in the Hospital Clínico San Carlos, Madrid, Spain. A ROC analysis was used. The results show the the area under the ROC curve for minor, moderate, and severe depression was .86, p < .001, .95, p < .001, and .99, p < .001, respectively. The sensitivity and specificity were .70 and .81 for minor depression, with 11 as a cutoff score, .85 and .88 for moderate depression, with 14 as a cutoff score, and 1 and .99, with 23 as a cutoff score for severe depression. The results of the PDSS-SF provide a good internal consistency, significant validity and reliability, and showed satisfactory combinations of sensitivity and specificity. The PDSS-SF is an accurate tool to evaluate antenatal depression.
