    Hi Everyone!  For those of you who had the opportunity to participate in today's Global Knowledge Exchange session about identifying, assessing and managing distress, I hope you learned some valuable things about how to identify patients who are experiencing anxiety and depression and how to assess when a referral is needed.  As referenced in the presentation, we have done a lot of work to integrate symptom screening into routine care in Alberta, Canada.  Here is an article that highlights the work that we did and the outcomes that were acheived (and this was all done with a paper/pencil based symptom screening tool that was completed in the waiting room and then reviewed as part of the ambulatory visit by the Registered Nurse, in collaboration with the Oncologists.
