Brief description Depression is common among residents of aged care facilities, although symptoms are often not detected or treated. The Professional Education to Aged Care (PEAC) is a beyondblue e-learning platform designed to enhance knowledge about depression and anxiety in residential care. This trial aims to test whether the addition of a behavioural activation component is more efficacious than the PEAC alone in reducing the frequency of depressive symptoms among nursing home residents.
