TARGET AUDIENCE/PROGRAM OBJECTIVES

This virtual activity has been designed in a lecture format with case examples followed by an interactive audience question and answer period to provide its’ primary target audience of Psychiatrists, as well as other specialties of medicine, with the most up-to-date evidence-based data that can be translated into clinical practice. The program is designed to provide its’ target audience of Psychiatrists, as well as other medical specialities, with clinically relevant information to advance the physicians’ competence and provide them with effective use of targeted skills so that they may develop strategies to apply the knowledge, skills and judgement of the information presented in the educational activity into their practice.

IDENTIFIED PRACTICE GAPS / NEEDS ASSESSMENT

TSPP identified educational needs and professional gaps from members expressed needs and in medical literature and incorporated it into the CME activity to address the relevant educational needs concerning competence that underlie the professional practice gaps of the participants.

Early childhood trauma is an important determinant of chronicity and treatment resistance in a variety of mental illnesses. In particular, childhood trauma often reduces the efficacy of antidepressant medications in major depressive disorder. Research has shown that adding trauma-focused psychotherapy improves treatment outcomes in this population. This presentation will improve recognition of childhood trauma, identification of the psychological effects of trauma, selection of psychological issues to be addressed in psychotherapy, and evaluation of recovery during treatment.

Childhood trauma complicates the presentation, treatment, and prognosis of many illnesses encountered in adult patients, including mood disorders, anxiety disorders, substance use disorders, and personality disorders. Effective diagnosis and treatment planning requires physicians to identify the presence childhood trauma and the effects of trauma on the therapeutic relationship and treatment effectiveness and compliance.

Physicians treating patients with mental illness often neglect their own health. Texas Physician Health Program monitors physicians with impairment who would like to continue to practice medicine, offering encouragement to physicians and their physician colleagues to self-refer, so that referral is not mandated by Texas Medical Board.

It is challenging for clinicians to stay current on developmental influences on psychiatric disorders. There is a large body of evidence on developmental factors predisposing individuals to psychiatric disorders, some of which can be modified through counseling about health risks during pregnancy.

Seizure disorders are commonly prevalent in the care of psychiatric and neurologic patients such as those with congenital seizure disorders, traumatic brain injuries, tumors, falls in the elderly. It is important to be able to diagnose and treat seizures in patients. The medications used treat seizure disorders have some psychiatric indications and are at risk for interacting with mental health medications. This activity is designed to review the diagnosis and treatment of seizure disorders with emphasis on medications and their interaction risks with other psychiatric medications
