Session 2: Update on Psychopharmacotherapy and Therapeutic Neuromodulation

July 25, 2022 to July 29, 2022

This course will use evidence-based and measurement-based care to develop optimal treatment approaches for the major psychiatric disorders. This is in the context of insufficient response to standard interventions (eg., antipsychotics for schizophrenia). Course participants will be able to develop specific treatment strategies based on randomized controlled and pragmatic trial data tempered by the realities of clinical practice (ie., every patient is a study of n=1). This will include consideration of relevant issues such as pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and drug interactions.

Target Audience

This advanced seminar is geared to mental health and health professionals.

Learning Objectives

Participants who engage in this educational intervention will be able to:

  • Better appreciate the role of evidence-based and measurement-based care to optimize treatment outcomes
  • Consider the relative value of various psychotropics for specific disorders
  • Better appreciate the emerging role of translational psychiatry in addressing the shortcomings of existing therapies
  • Understand the importance of developing strategies which will enhance patient adherence to treatment
