Bipolar disorder is a frequent and clinically complex psychiatric disorder. Patients with bipolar disorder are exceptionally challenging to manage because of the dynamic, chronic, and fluctuating nature of their disease. These patients frequently have co-occurring disorders that can impact treatment selection. While healthcare providers may see mixed features in depressed and bipolar depressed patients in daily practice, they may not appreciate that the presence of mixed states is a particular danger to patients.
In this CME Outfitters Snack, expert faculty will discuss changes to the DSM-5 for patients with mood disorders, selecting appropriate treatment, the importance of a collaborative interview and the impact of co-occurring disorders.
At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:
- Integrate recent changes in DSM-5 into your individualized care for patients with mood disorders.
- Recognize the high incidence of depressive symptoms in patients with bipolar disorder and target treatments appropriately.
- Include families and significant others into the assessment of patients with bipolar disorder.
