The Pittsburgh sleep quality index: A new instrument for psychiatric practice and research
TLDR
The clinimetric and clinical properties of the PSQI suggest its utility both in psychiatric clinical practice and research activities. Expand
Acute and longer-term outcomes in depressed outpatients requiring one or several treatment steps: a STAR*D report.
TLDR
When more treatment steps are required, lower acute remission rates (especially in the third and fourth treatment steps) and higher relapse rates during the follow-up phase are to be expected. Expand

Size of Treatment Effects and Their Importance to Clinical Research and Practice
TLDR

TLDR
Classifying putative risk factors into these qualitatively different types can help identify high-risk individuals in need of preventive interventions and can help inform the content of such interventions. Expand

TLDR
Most diagnoses adequately tested had good to very good reliability with these representative clinical populations assessed with usual clinical interview methods. Expand
