State of the Art in the Diagnosis and Treatment of Mood Disorders

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Bipolar disorder is a frequent and clinically complex psychiatric disorder. Patients with bipolar disorder are exceptionally challenging to manage because of the dynamic, chronic, and fluctuating nature of their disease. These patients frequently have co-occurring disorders that can impact treatment selection. While healthcare providers may see mixed features in depressed and bipolar depressed patients in daily practice, they may not appreciate that the presence of mixed states is a particular danger to patients.

In this short CME Outfitters activity, or "CMEO Snack", expert faculty will discuss changes to the DSM-5 for patients with mood disorders, selecting appropriate treatment, the importance of a collaborative interview and the impact of co-occurring disorders.
