MDQ - Mood Disorder Questionnaire
The MDQ is a 17-question self-report screen for bipolar spectrum disorder (Bipolar I, Bipolar II, Bipolar NOS).
Once the patient has submitted it, you may preview it on the uninitialed documents tab in the EMR. However, do not initial it or it won't later be pulled into your Mobile Note.
It is a positive screen for bipolar spectrum disorder if ALL of the following are true:
Q1 is greater than or equal to 7, AND
Q2 is equal to 1, AND
Q3 is 2 or 3
