Treatment of Depression (November 2021)
01 Nov 2021 - 21 Dec 2021 • Boston, United States
Organizer:
MGH Psychiatry Academy
Abstract:
The course will present a primer on the diagnosis and management of depression for the general psychiatrist, primary care physician, or nurse practitioner. The course is designed in a scalable model. This means that each lecture builds upon the previous one, paralleling the thought process that psychiatrists follow when facing a patient with increasingly resistant depression. Participants may follow the course as far as they wish, based on how much they are interested in doing in their practices. Participants will get a complete, self-contained lesson in each lecture, permitting them to either view the entire course (in any order desired) or select which module(s) they wish to view. The lectures will include at least one case presentation, played by two of the DCRP faculty where one will play the doctor and the other will play the patient. The course includes an array of resources, videos and other materials to enhance the learning experience. All content and assignments can be completed at any time. Weekly call-in times allow faculty to hear and respond to questions directly, and an interactive discussion board lets participants post questions and interact with peers from across the United States and around the world. Plus, the course is accessible via desktop, laptop, smartphone or tablet. Course materials are available beginning on November 1, 2021 and all online course work must be completed by December 20, 2021.

Psychiatric Disorders in Women: Diagnostic and Treatment Considerations Across the Female Lifespan (November 2021)
01 Nov 2021 - 21 Dec 2021 • Boston, United States
Organizer:
MGH Psychiatry Academy
Abstract:
This course will focus on the diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric disorders in women across the reproductive lifespan. Specialized knowledge is necessary to tailor treatments to reproductive events such as pregnancy and pregnancy planning, the postpartum, breastfeeding, the menopausal transition, and menstrual cycle related mood dysregulation. Exposure to psychotropic medications and the consequence of untreated psychiatric disorders must be considered when treating pregnant women, those who may become pregnant during treatment, and those who are breastfeeding. Up to date and comprehensive knowledge is required to help patients make collaborative and individualized treatment decisions. Focused material will also be presented regarding the treatment of premenstrual dysphoric disorder and premenstrual mood exacerbation, as well as treatment considerations for the menopausal transition. Learning in this course will be facilitated by didactic materials delivered by the faculty from the MGH Center for Women’s Mental Health. Faculty will also facilitate question and answer and case-based discussion sessions for course participants. Readings to accompany course materials will also be provided.
