concerned about length

2 PRACTICAL MEASURE RATING CRITERIA - For Real World Application As others have noted, the length of this scale may be a challenge in the real world. Second, it's unclear if the scale has been validated in other languages or cultures.

BDI- length of scale

I agree with William Sieber that the length of the BDI-II for use in primary care and EHR. Furthermore, some of the questions related to sexual function are often skipped by research participants and may likely raise concerns if used broadly in an EHR.

limitations in primary care

We began using the BDI in our family medicine clinics but received significant 'push back' from patients as to its length. We continue to use it if we need a secondary measure of outcomes as it is more detailed than the PHQ-9, which we use universally for patients referred to our collaborative care program.
