Bethesda, Maryland (PRWEB) March 24, 2015
CME Outfitters (CMEO), a leading accredited provider in continuing medical education, announces its three-part online neuroscienceCME Bipolar Depression Case Series:
- Part 1: Bipolar Depression Case Series-The Art and Science of Clinical Management: Treatment Choices and Monitoring Change
- Part 2: Bipolar Depression Case Series-The Art and Science of Clinical Management: Adjusting and Monitoring Treatment Toward Remission
- Part 3: Bipolar Depression Case Series-The Art and Science of Clinical Management: Balancing Efficacy and Safety
All physicians, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and other health care professionals with an interest in bipolar disorder are encouraged to participate. In these cases, faculty experts Charles B. Nemeroff, MD, PhD, Terence A. Ketter, MD, and Natalie L. Rasgon, MD, PhD utilize case-based education to offer clinicians optimal, real-world context needed to combine the latest science with best practice to improve outcomes in patients with bipolar depression.
Bipolar depression is one of the world’s 10 most disabling conditions, taking away years of healthy functioning from individuals who have the illness. Individuals with bipolar depression are at high risk for comorbid medical disorders such as metabolic or cardiovascular disorders, and unfortunately, several of the psychotropic medications that are used to treat bipolar disorder may increase the risk of developing certain medical illnesses. Careful, ongoing assessment, monitoring, and individualized treatment-selection can help reduce some of the risk factors and improve quality of life for these patients. On December 15, 2014, a neuroscienceCME Live and On Demand featured a series of cases on bipolar depression. To meet the learning preferences of busy clinicians, the activity has been divided into three short modules, each featuring a patient case that demonstrates the complex challenges presented by patients with bipolar depression.
