Important Notice

PubMed Central Canada to be taken offline in February 2018

On February 23, 2018, PubMed Central Canada (PMC Canada) will be taken offline permanently. No author manuscripts will be deleted, and the approximately 2,900 manuscripts authored by Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)-funded researchers currently in the archive will be copied to the National Research Council’s (NRC) Digital Repository over the coming months. These manuscripts along with all other content will also remain publicly searchable on PubMed Central (US) and Europe PubMed Central, meaning such manuscripts will continue to be compliant with the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications.

1.  Prevalence, Correlates, and Symptom Profiles of Depression among Men with a History of Military Service 
Purpose
The purpose of this study was to examine the prevalence, correlates, and symptom profiles of depressive disorders in men with a history of military service.
Methods
Data was obtained from the 2006 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) survey. Multivariable logistic regressions were used to identify correlates of lifetime and current depression. Regularly occurring symptom profiles were identified via cluster analysis.
Results
Prevalence of lifetime and current depression was similar in men with and without a history of military service. Lifetime diagnosis was positively associated with younger age and negatively associated with black minority status, married or cohabitation, and self-reported good health. Current depression was positively associated with other minority status (non-Hispanic non-black) and negatively associated with older age, some college, being in a relationship, and self-reported good health. A cluster of younger men who experience significant depressive symptoms but may not report depressed mood or anhedonia was identified.
Conclusions
Depression is as prevalent in men with a history of military service as it is in men without a history. Research should examine subpopulations of men with a history of military service in which depression may be more prevalent or burdensome. Younger men with significant depressive symptoms may be missed by standard depression screens and still be at elevated risk for negative outcomes associated with depressive disorders.

2.  Assessing Patient Preferences for Delivery of Reminders on Scheduled Visits in a Psychiatry Ambulatory Service 
Reminder systems can improve compliance with care standards, yet the reminder delivery parameters and associations with other success factors have not been fully understood. In this study, we assessed patient preferences for reminder delivery in a psychiatry ambulatory service, using both quantitative and qualitative analyses. Results from a survey showed that most patients had a positive attitude to reminders for both scheduled (76%) and missed (89%) visits. Phone call (61%) delivered two days before an appointment (47%) was the most preferred type and time of reminder delivery. Logistic regressions on survey data showed that preferences of reminder delivery parameters were associated with service types and patient populations, which was cross-validated by the follow-up interviews with the staff at two ambulatory sites. A single-mode reminder delivering method cannot satisfy different types of patients. Intervention designs that involve building a system with a variety of methods customized to patient needs and balanced with administrative simplicity need to be further studied.
