Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

This research considered attendance in the Well Elderly II intervention to determine the dosage effect on depression scores. In particular, how many hours of OT sessions are necessary to produce meaningful reductions in depressive symptoms? Our analysis suggests that the small improvements in depression scores do not appear to be associated with the dosage of the intervention received; therefore, any preventative effects of the intervention need to be reconsidered.
