Bethesda, Maryland (PRWEB) June 20, 2014
CME Outfitters, LLC (CMEO) announces the release of their latest certified webcasts on neurocognitive disorders, and late-life depression. Featuring esteemed faculty George T. Grossberg, MD, and W. Vaughn McCall, MD, MS, the first webcast entitled Neurocognitive Disorders, the DSM-5, and Informed Treatment Choices helps clinicians review and apply changes in the DSM-5 as it relates to a diagnosis of neurocognitive disorders during annual assessments. The second webcast entitled, Late-Life Depression: More Than a Mood Disorder, features esteemed faculty J. Craig Nelson, MD, and David C. Steffens, MD, MHS, as they talk about how to implement an individualized treatment plan, evaluate the efficacy of current treatments, and the role of emerging treatments in achieving remission in late-life depression. The American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry (AAGP) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry (AAGP) designates each of these enduring materials for a maximum of 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Major depressive disorder (MDD) is the most prevalent mental health condition and late-life depression is associated with significant morbidity and mortality and a tendency towards chronicity. Furthermore, as it relates to neurocognitive disorders, changes to the DSM-5 have modified the language used in evidence-based diagnostic criteria for dementia. Education for clinicians can accelerate the adoption of the new DSM-5 language and how to apply the revisions to clinical practice.
CMEO encourages all clinicians in the field of geriatric psychiatry, or people who manage older adults to participate in both webcasts, each of which can be completed for CME credit.
