Program Description

Bipolar disorder is a severe psychiatric disorder that is frequently associated with persistent symptoms and significant dysfunction. The symptoms of mania demand the most attention in bipolar disorder.

While there are numerous psychopharmacologic agents that are available for treatment of this illness, suboptimal response and significant adverse consequences limit their utility.1 New medications to treat bipolar disorder can offer clinicians more options, and newer medications generally improve upon the tolerability and side effect profiles of previous antipsychotic agents. Evidence suggests that the symptoms of bipolar disorder are recurrent and can worsen over repeated relapses. The goal is to effectively manage symptoms and prevent relapse.

In this CME Outfitters patient case and expert consult Q&A session, faculty go in-depth with the case study by answering questions while offering evidence, guidelines, and quality measures for collaborative strategies to optimally care for patients with bipolar disorder.
