Postpartum Depression Topic Of Lecture

1/30/04


HOUSTON — Cheryl Tatano Beck, professor of nursing at the University of Connecticut, will discuss postpartum depression during the Parry Distinguished Lectureship Series, sponsored by the Texas Woman’s University College of Nursing and the Houston chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International (nursing honor society). The lectureship will be March 5 from 9 a.m. until noon at the TWU Houston center, located at the Texas Medical Center, 1130 John Freeman Blvd., room MGJ 724.

The purpose of the lecture is to inform nurses on how to differentiate between postpartum depression and other psychological disorders and to identify women at risk for postpartum depression.

Registration is free, courtesy the TWU College of Nursing. Participants, however, will be responsible for their parking fees. Participants can pre-register before Feb. 20 by calling (713) 794-2100. On-site registration also will be available beginning at 8:30 a.m. on March 5.

TWU has applied with the Texas Nurses Association for three continuing nurse education (CNE) Type 1 contact hours for lectureship participants.

During the past 15 years, using both qualitative and quantitative research methods, Dr. Beck has examined postpartum depression. One of the major challenges in dealing with postpartum depression has been early recognition. Dr. Beck has developed the Postpartum Depression Screening Scale (PDSS) and an effective protocol that can help identify women suffering from postpartum depression.

Poster presentations, a networking session and question and answer session also will take place during the lectureship.
