dc.description.abstractStatement of the problem: Depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide with low remission rates. Exercise has been used as an evidence-based treatment option with positive results. This project assessed the usefulness of a pocket card to disseminate evidence-based research to medication providers while collecting additional information. Methods: 93 medication providers were identified in northwestern Montana counties at 14 outpatient clinics to disburse an informational packet to, including the pocket card. A letter directed providers to take an initial survey and a follow up survey. Results: The majority of participants (86%) found the pocket card to be a useful way in receiving information regarding exercise as treatment for depression. Conclusion: The pocket card was a useful way to disseminate evidence for exercise as treatment for depression to medication providers.en
