Edinburgh postnatal depression scale (EPDS) adaptation

 

Overview

The project involved a translation of the Edinburgh postnatal depression scale (EPDS) to enable the scale to be administered to Indigenous women in two diverse communities in North Queensland. The aim of the project was to provide a version of the EPDS more appropriate for Indigenous women. In comparison to the standard version of the EPDS, the translated version identified more Indigenous women at risk of postnatal depression. The requirement for the further evaluation of the screening tool is acknowledged.
