[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Evidence-based Practice Presentation] Research has shown that heart failure patients with depression have been "re-admitted to the hospital within three months to a year after hospitalization, and are twice as likely to die than patients who are not depressed" (Rohyans & Pressler, 2009, p.3). Utilizing the patient health questionnaire (PHQ-9), our facility has adapted the PHQ-9 by incorporating two of the questions to further assist the nurses to identify possible depression in CHF patients upon admission (The McArthur Initiative on Depression and Primary Care, 2009). One study also revealed that interviews with patients has shown that one in five of those patients have depression, and the rate was found to be higher when questionnaires were used in the clinical setting to identify those at risk (Rutledge, Reis, Linke, Greenberg, & Mills, 2006). 
Depressed people are less likely to be compliant with medication, diet, activity, and lifestyle changes which leads to hospitalization, re-admissions, complications, increased morbidity, and mortality. After conducting a survey of our nursing staff, the focus of the presentation is to educate nurses to identify symptoms of depression in Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) patients utilizing a depression assessment screening tool.  The goal is to utilize a depression screening tool upon admission that may identify depressed patients who have been admitted with heart failure, in order to provide the appropriate intervention for the person. References: Rohyans, L., & Pressler, S.
