Abstract

Nursing care of patients with postpartum depression should be guided by the available evidence. Evidence is available on the impact of postpartum depression, screening, diagnosis, and effective treatments. The purpose of this manuscript is to recommend a core list of critical readings that provide the highest level of evidence to date in the following content areas: knowledge of disorder, screening, diagnosis, and treatment. We have chosen ten articles so that the number of recommend readings can be a manageable size for busy clinicians. These ten articles can serve as a "tool kit" in assisting clinicians to provide evidence based practice to post partum women.
