Diagnosing GAD, Panic Disorder: Which Screening Methods Work Best? – MPR

Diagnosing GAD, Panic Disorder: Which Screening Methods Work Best? A systematic review of research in the Journal of the American Medical Association evaluated the diagnostic accuracy of self-report screening instruments for GAD or panic disorder vs. a trained clinical diagnosis made using Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders or International Classification of Diseases criteria. Nine screening instruments were identified, with the Generalized Anxiety Disorder Scale 7 Item (GAD-7) as the best-performing test with a positive likelihood ratio of 5.1 (95% CI, 4.36.0) and a negative likelihood ratio of 0.13 (95% CI, 0.070.25). The Patient Health Questionnaire was the best-performing screening instrument for panic disorder, with a positive likelihood ratio of 78 (95% CI, 29210) and a negative likelihood ratio of 0.20 (95% CI, 0.110.37). The authors warn that these instruments need further validation in clinical research on multiple primary care populations.

For 60 more seconds his body absorbed electricity.
