Update on Depression, Bipolar, and Anxiety Pharmacotherapeutics

The appropriate diagnosis and treatment of mood and stress disorders is a challenging yet necessary skill set for the advanced nurse practitioner. This CE offering probes through individual case studies that depict the multifactorial presentations of depression and anxiety, along with an in-depth exploration into bipolar I and II disorders.

Each scenario offers a full analysis of the corresponding condition, helping you to construct the most accurate diagnosis and pharmacotherapeutic program for improving patient outcomes. By investing in this presentation, you will develop a greater ability to pinpoint your choice of medication regimens when choosing between a variety of drugs, such as antidepressants, first-and second-generation antipsychotics, and drugs that can be used off-label.

Other drug classes discussed in this session are as follows:

  • Anticonvulsants
  • Antimanics (i.e., lithium)
  • Antianxiety medications

PNS-CNS and Psychopharmacology – Part 2: Psychiatric Disorders

Knowing how to treat the body’s intricate peripheral nervous system is critical.

The differences between atypical antipsychotics and conventional (typical) antipsychotics and between SNRIs and SSRIs are discussed. Pharmacologic treatment of bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, sleep disorders, and ADHD are also included.

  • Adrenergic, dopaminergic and anticholinergic agents
  • Antidepressants, antipsychotics, and antiseizure agents

Differential Diagnosis of Common Psychiatric-Mental Health Disorders

Making psychiatric diagnoses can be overwhelming: Symptoms of common disorders often overlap, and differentiation is key for managing your patient’s condition effectively and compassionately. This session will empower you to sharpen your psychiatric-mental health differential diagnosis skills, using expert guidance and the most up-to-date information from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5 th edition. This uniquely structured course is built around four challenging case studies and delves into each patient’s condition, allowing you to practice your new skills as you examine conditions from brief psychotic disorder to autism spectrum disorder. By the conclusion of the course, you will have renewed confidence and the knowledge you need to make the best care choices for your patients.

  • Personality and mood disorders
  • Substance abuse disorders
  • Anxiety, stress disorders, and trauma (e.g., signs of intimate partner violence)
