Neurocognitive Disorders in Geriatric Psychiatry is organized by American Psychiatric Association (APA) and will be held from Jan 01, 2017 - Dec 31, 2019.
This program is one element of a lifelong learning program for psychiatrists and is an aid for psychiatrists and other clinicians participating in maintenance of certification.
The APA designates this journal-based CME activity for a maximum of 5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Focus, APA’s clinical review journal, is designed as a personal study resource to help practicing psychiatrists keep abreast of significant advances in the field, with particular attention to clinical practice. The goals of Focus are to disseminate up-to-date information, facilitate lifelong learning study skills, support maintenance of certification, and provide opportunity for self-assessment in order to improve patient care. Each issue, prepared by distinguished faculty who are recognized leaders in their fields, incorporates a CME component. The material can be used effectively by establishing a regular schedule of study.
As a result of this CME activity, the participant will
• Review the data on the epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment of neurocognitive disorders in geriatric psychiatry, including Alzheimer’s disease, cognitive impairment associated with schizophrenia, depression in late life, and the overlap of cognitive disorders and Parkinson’s disease.
• Be able to apply increased understanding of neurocognitive disorders in geriatric psychiatry and be better able to contribute to the care of patients with these disorders.
• Review current knowledge, recognize gaps in learning, and prepare for an annual self-assessment designed to identify areas where more study is needed to enhance management of patients’ treatment.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
