Abstract

Team members at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC and Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic of UPMC recognized a void in clinical care resources for women seeking treatment for postpartum depression and the need for a defined pathway to treatment. Finding a treatment pathway for postpartum depression is significant in public health because of the devastating effects that untreated depression can have on women and developing children. The project has two focuses: first, standardizing depression screening practices across providers treating women in the postpartum period and second, developing a clear set of resources for evaluation and treatment. This program development occurred between March 2016 and December 2016, in collaboration between Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC and Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic of UPMC in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
