Depression among patients with tuberculosis: determinants, course and impact on pathways to care and treatment outcomes in a primary care setting in southern Ethiopia--a study protocol.

Ambaw F, Mayston R, Hanlon C, Alem A - BMJ Open (2015)

Bottom Line: Outcome variables include: pathways to treatment, classical outcomes for anti-TB treatment quality of life and disability.Descriptive statistics, logistic regression and multilevel mixed-effect analysis will be used to test the study hypotheses.We hope the dissemination of findings will raise awareness of comorbidity among clinicians and service providers, and contribute to ongoing debates regarding the delivery of mental healthcare in primary care in Ethiopia.

BMJOPEN2015007653F3: Schematic illustration for analysing the effect of tuberculosis on depression.

Mentions: The study is a prospective cohort in which adults with newly diagnosed TB will be recruited at the time of initiating treatment and followed up to the end of treatment (6 months after initiation) (figure 1). Data collection will occur at three time-points: baseline (before anti-TB treatment), at 2 months (end of intensive phase) and at 6 months (end of continuation phase; table 1). Figure 3 shows the approach to investigation of the effect of TB on depression and figure 4 shows the approach to investigation of the effect of depression on TB.
