Statement of Need:
The 1st Annual Chairs in Psychiatry Summit brought together the leaders in psychiatry and other practicing physicians to review and discuss the latest research and treatment strategies in psychiatry. This groundbreaking summit included a keynote address, scientific presentations, and clinically focused workshops targeting both basic and advanced issues. The workshops covered a wide range of clinically relevant topics, including brain imaging, sleep, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, comorbid substance abuse, anxiety disorders, suicide, brain stimulation, depression, the role of genes in mental disorders, autism, and others.
This Meeting Highlights Clinical Navigator™ is offered as a means of addressing a variety of psychiatric conditions for clinicians who were unable to attend the live conference on June 27-29, 2008, and as a summary and refresher to those who were able to attend. Each section provides references and evidence that are key to translating the presentation content into data that is helpful in the clinic and improves patient care. Fordis and colleagues found that carefully designed, evidence-based online CME can produce objectively measured changes in behavior as well as gains in knowledge that are comparable to those associated with effective live activities.
In this evidence-based Meeting Highlight from the 1st Annual Chairs in Psychiatry Summit, psychiatrists and physicians have access to cutting-edge research, the latest clinical trial data, and expert opinions that, together, can help advance the practice of participants and improve patient outcomes.
