Statement of Need
There are many factors impeding the accurate diagnosis of bipolar disorder, including that it is difficult to differentiate bipolar I disorder (BD-I) and bipolar II disorder (BD-II) from unipolar depression, particularly in those with no clear history of mania or hypomania or who present during a depressive episode. Additionally, the prevalence of depressive symptoms is higher than that of hypomanic or manic symptoms during the course of BD-I or BD-II, with the proportion of time ill accounted for by depression being 70% in BD-I and 80% in BD-II. Therefore, it is imperative that physicians note diagnostic criteria and diagnostic aids and utilize rapid assessment tools such as the Mood Disorders Questionnaire (MDQ), Composite International Diagnostic Interview (CIDI), and the Rapid Mood Screener (RMS) when assessing mood disorders.
In this CME Outfitters BriefCase, expert faculty will present a patient case that shows how to detect BD-I, differentiate BD-I and BD-II and other mimickers, and use evidence-based screening tools to improve detection of BD-I in order to promote early administration of effective care.
At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:
• Implement diagnostic criteria and evidence-based tools to improve detection of bipolar I disorder for early administration of effective care.
The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE or CPE credit:
• Assess diagnostic criteria and evidence-based tools to improve the detection of bipolar I disorder for early administration of effective care.
