Clinical Trial Summary

As a potential solution to address high rates of depression and anxiety seen in epilepsy patients and poor mental health care access, this trial aims to carry out treatment for depression and anxiety directly in the epilepsy clinic. Patients that meet eligibility criteria, including significant symptoms of depression and/or anxiety, will be enrolled in the intervention. The intervention will consist of an initial prescription for an FDA-approved medication to treat depression/anxiety and telephone-based chronic care management plan for repeated symptom measurement and side effect surveillance. The purpose of this pre-piloting limited study is to streamline recruitment, intervention and outcome assessment process in preparation for a randomized, controlled pilot of the intervention.

Clinical Trial Description

This trial is an innovative learning healthcare system approach to translate the concept of measurement-based depression care into a specialty clinic setting and extend the concept to treat depression and/or anxiety. The neurologist/APP-administered medication intervention utilizes FDA-approved drugs with advantageous features for use in epilepsy (escitalopram and venlafaxine) and a telephone-based chronic care management plan for repeated symptom measurement and side effect surveillance. The proposed intervention may overcome barriers to implementing mental health treatment interventions in generalized clinical settings by using healthcare providers commonly present in specialty clinics (physicians and APPs) along with a billable, best practices chronic care management intervention package. To test this idea, the study team seeks to pilot a feasibility trial of an epileptologist-driven medication treatment intervention for anxiety and depression, carried out directly in the epilepsy clinic during a regularly scheduled visit and supported by advanced practice provider (APP), using epilepsy as a paradigm for chronic medical illness with high prevalence of psychiatric comorbidity. In this limited, intervention only pre-piloting trial, the team will streamline recruitment, intervention, and outcome assessment procedures to prepare for a randomized, controlled pilot of the intervention. ;
