Program Description

Patients with bipolar disorder spend more time in depression than mania or hypomania and tend to seek treatment during depressive episodes more often than during manic periods. There is often a discrepancy between real-world management of bipolar depression and evidence-based recommendations. Treating patients with bipolar depression ideally requires a partnership between the patient and the clinician, including shared decision-making. This interactive case highlights data-supported treatment options and effective patient dialogues that can help identify and respond to the patient’s individual needs and improve outcomes for bipolar depression.

Intended Audience

Psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other healthcare professionals working in a specialty setting who manage patients with bipolar depression.

Educational Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Construct individualized, evidence-based treatment plans for patients with bipolar I depression, assessing the data for approved and nonapproved therapies
  • Employ strategies for a patient-centric approach and more effective patient/caregiver communication with regard to treatment options, adherence, and improving outcomes and quality of life
