Selection Rationale

The Composite International Diagnostic Interview Screening Scales (CIDI-SC) 5.0 was selected to screen a general population for the presence of depression because it is based on the larger Composite International Diagnostic Interview (CIDI). The CIDI has been used on thousands of subjects in the United States and around the world, is available in multiple formats, is easily administered by trained nonclinician interviewers, and is well validated. The CIDI provides screening criteria consistent with the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems 10th Revision (ICD-10) and the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (5th ed.; DSM-5).

Definition

An interviewer-administered questionnaire to screen for major depressive disorder (MDD).

Purpose

This measure can be used to screen an individual for the presence of depression and to assess the degree of distress and impairment. Depression is a common disorder that demonstrates a familial pattern and is comorbid with other psychiatric disorders, including anxiety disorder, substance use disorders, and eating disorders. Additionally, certain medical conditions-such as diabetes, stroke, and heart disease-can increase the risk of depression. Some individuals who present with major depressive episodes may have a bipolar spectrum disorder.
