  • Diagnòstic ansietat i depressió (3)

    An IDIAPJGol study suggests that in the first year of the pandemic, fewer cases of anxiety and depression were detected in Primary Care

    The researchers have analyzed data from more than 3 million people to calculate the expected incidence of these diagnoses during the first year of the pandemic, which they have subsequently compared with the incidence actually observed. A peak in anxiety diagnoses was observed at the start of the lockdown. Beyond this peak, the incidence of anxiety and depression diagnoses was lower than expected, especially in women, young adults, and people living in more disadvantaged areas.
