Identification and Treatment of Mood Disorders
Mood disorders are among the most common psychiatric disorders but present a unique challenge to the primary care provider. Although referral to a mental health provider is often initiated, significant wait times occur before an appointment is available for the patient. This CE presentation will contain information that will assist the primary care provider in bridging the treatment gap until the mental health provider can see the patient.
By the end of the CE session, the participant will:
1. identify patient information that is part of a psychiatric risk assessment.
2. differentiate between Major Depressive Disorder, Persistent Depressive Disorder, Bipolar Disorders, and Cyclothymia.
3. identify key treatment strategies for patients experiencing Major Depressive Disorder, Persistent Depressive Disorder, Bipolar Disorders, and Cyclothymia.
