CME Outfitters, LLC (CMEO) announces the release of their brand new certified neuroscienceCME Medical Simulation entitled, Clinical Decision Making in Action: A Medical Student With Bipolar Disorder. This activity is designed to help physicians anticipate the challenges presented by a young woman diagnosed with bipolar disorder embarking on her medical residency. What impact will sleep disruption, long hours, and rotating shifts have on her bipolar disorder? What is the best way to manage and stabilize her mood during challenging periods? The online, competency-based, branch-logic patient simulation features media elements such as video clips and links to resources, and provides a safe environment for clinicians matching real life experiences to improve clinical decision-making. Daniel Buysee, MD, of University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine provides his insights on clinical challenges throughout the simulation.

“With over 10 years experience in educating clinicians in bipolar disorder and sleep medicine, we have found the neuroscienceCME Medical Simulation format to be a successful and enjoyable learning experience for clinicians because it is so applicable to everyday practice,” said Jan Perez, CCMEP, CMEO Managing Partner. “The learners view video of a patient, make assessments based on the patients story and history, and receive guidance from expert faculty Daniel Buysee, MD, all within one smooth and fluid virtual session.”

The medical simulation is free of charge, and can be completed any time, anywhere. All physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and pharmacists with an interest in sleep and mood disorders are encouraged to participate.
