Abstract

The findings of Valenstein and colleagues in this issue do not imply that detecting depression is unimportant. Instead, the authors' cost-utility analysis raises questions about universal screening (as opposed to selective case finding) and about merely improving detection without simultaneously enhancing treatment and follow-up.
