Statement of Need
Bipolar I disorder (BD-I) is an often chronic, debilitating condition in which medication is a mainstay of treatment. However, medication non adherence can negatively impact clinical outcomes, increasing the risk for relapse and (re)hospitalization. Long-acting injectables (LAIs), particularly relative to oral therapies, are an effective treatment option for BD-I that overcomes nonadherence, thereby promoting remission and functional recovery. However, despite their safety and efficacy, both clinician and patient factors impede their use in routine practice.
This CME Outfitters BriefCase utilizes a patient case to guide clinicians on best practices to engage patients in treatment planning for BD-I, including the feasibility of LAIs as an effective treatment option.
At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:
• Incorporate collaborative care discussions with patients with bipolar I disorder that include incorporating LAIs as a potential management option.
The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE or CPE credit:
• Describe ways to incorporate collaborative care discussions with patients with bipolar I disorder that include incorporating LAIs as a potential management option.
