Summary of "Screening for depression in cancer patients using the PHQ-9: The accuracy of somatic compared to non-somatic items."

The PHQ-9 is a standard screening tool for depressive disorders in cancer patients. As for the frequently reported symptom overlap with somatic disease, it has been debated whether somatic items are suitable for identifying depressive disorders in cancer patients. Thus, this study examines the diagnostic accuracy of somatic versus cognitive-emotional PHQ-9 items.
