Description

This brand new medical conference provides advanced guidance on how to treat and manage patients who have anxiety disorders.

In mental health and primary care practices, patients with anxiety disorders are not only common, they often need more of your time and resources to manage their conditions. There are many evidence-based pharmacologic and behavioral treatment options, yet practice measures show that patient outcomes often do not meet expected or desired levels of improvement.

During this event, our faculty focus on advanced concepts that go far beyond the basics. Their guidance is 100% practical and ready for use in any primary care and mental health setting.

Reenergize your practice and apply new skills to:

  • Enhance how you use cognitive interventions
  • Address many specific comorbidities, such as sleep, cardiac and GI disorders
  • Use advanced psychopharmacology for all anxiety disorders and related conditions
  • Navigate medical conditions affected by anxiety, and vice versa
  • Improve outcomes for patients who have anxiety

This is an ideal event for all clinicians in primary care practices that treat patients who have anxiety. It is also ideal for psychiatrists, psychologists, nursing professionals, and others on their practice teams.

This Live activity, Anxiety: Advanced Techniques for Primary Care and Psychiatry 2017, with a beginning date of 09/09/2017, has been reviewed and is acceptable for up to 14.25 Prescribed credit(s) by the American Academy of Family Physicians. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Identify rational, evidence-based pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic therapies for patients with anxiety disorders.
  • Demonstrate the ability to discuss second- and third-line treatments following an unsuccessful first SSRI trial.
  • Discuss the developmental trajectories of anxiety.
  • Compare the assessment, psychopharmacology, and evidence-based psychotherapies for panic disorder, PTSD, OCD and related disorders, and somatoform disorders.
  • Review the course of medical conditions as they are affected by anxiety.
  • Recognize advanced CBT strategies and when to apply them.
