Audio-Digest Foundation announces the release of Psychiatry Volume 42, Issue 10: Pharmacogenomics in Modern Clinical Practice.
The goal of this program is to improve application of new developments in genetic sequencing and neuroimaging to clinical treatment of psychiatric illness. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Describe how genetic and epigenetic influences converge to affect the development of mental illness.
2. Recognize limitations in current systems for codifying psychiatric diagnoses, and how these limitations may create conflicts with research and treatment goals.
3. Link specific areas of the brain with symptom domains that cut across multiple psychiatric disorders.
4. Identify regions of the brain that manifest abnormal information processing in patients with psychiatric symptoms.
5. Prepare for changes in treatment and prescribing practices precipitated by new advances in biomarker testing and neuroimaging.
The original programs were presented by Stephen M. Stahl, MD, PhD, Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego, School of Medicine, La Jolla, CA.
