- Brief summaryBackground: Depressive disorder is a common mental health problem, which burdens individual patients as well as society. Not only is major depressive disorder associated with absenteeism from work, absence caused by mental disorders is of longer duration on average than absence caused by physical illness. Although evidence-based treatments for major depressive disorder are available, these are applied insufficiently and with less result than possible. Also, in most treatments occupational functioning is not a focus. In the occupational health setting, there is a need for more efficient screening and treatment of major depressive disorder. The collaborative care approach has proven to be an effective model in the treatment in primary care in the USA. Methods / design: CC: DOC (Collaborative Care: Depression initiative in Occupational Care) is a randomized controlled trial in which the treatment of major depressive disorder in the occupational health setting will be evaluated in the Netherlands. The cost-effectiveness of a collaborative care model, containing adherence enhancing techniques, contracting, Problem Solving Treatment, antidepressants, and manual guided self-help aimed at return to work, will be compared with care as usual. Patients on sick leave between 6 and 52 weeks who are diagnosed with major depressive disorder are included. Data will be collected at baseline and 3, 6, 9 and 12 months after baseline. Outcome measures are reduction of symptoms, return to work and cost-effectiveness of the intervention. Discussion: A collaborative care intervention in the treatment of major depressive disorder is evaluated for its cost-effectiveness in the occupational health setting in the Netherlands. Collaborative care has been studied for its effectiveness in the primary care setting in the US, but to our knowledge, it has not been studied in the occupational health setting yet. The occupational health setting appears to be an appropriate setting to incorporate work-related functioning into the treatment of patients with major depressive disorder on sick leave. Hallmark of collaborative care are activated patients who take responsibility for their treatment, which could make collaborative care an effective way to deal with major depressive disorder in the occupational health setting.
