Episode 362: Depression in primary care – talk first and prescribe later

In episode 362, James and Mike invite Bruce Arroll back to talk about his latest systematic review on antidepressants for treatment of depression in primary care. We quickly come to the realization that primary care is different than specialty care and that we need to talk first and prescribe later and have the clinician be the drug.
