Abstract: Cognitive behaviour therapy is a well-documented first-line treatment for mild to moderate depression. Primary healthcare providers have encountered several barriers when trying to provide CBT in an office-based setting and as such, adoption of this evidence-based treatment has been suboptimal. Primary healthcare nurse practitioners (PHC NPs) have an in-depth knowledge of advanced nursing practice, and are responsible for the assessment, diagnosis and management of patients with acute and chronic conditions, such as depression. PHC NPs are also ideally situated in the health care system to deliver CBT to their patients. The objectives of this project were to develop a format for the delivery of brief CBT methods that was feasible in the PHC setting, increase PHC providers’ confidence to implement CBT and ultimately increase their adoption of CBT
