Many primary care prescribers of medications are limited to as little as 15 minutes in order to diagnose client mental health disorders and to select appropriate psychiatric medications. This has significant implications for mental health practitioners who treat these clients and for other healthcare professionals that may be involved directly in medication changes and adjustments. All health care providers who deal with depression, anxiety and other mental health disorders will encounter treatment concerns due to psychotropic medications including the following: • Inappropriate selection for the presenting mental health disorder. • Inadequate doses of medication. • Drug interactions. • Unpleasant and unexpected side effects. It is becoming increasingly important that all providers of mental health care become knowledgeable about the appropriate use of psychotropic medications, the mechanisms of drug action and the recognition of specific side effects. With this knowledge, mental health treatment can be optimized for patients. Attend this seminar and expand your knowledge pertaining to the safe and effective application and management of psychotropic medications. Conference Objectives are : • Demonstrate a basic knowledge of the historical antecedents of psychopharmaceutical products and their relation to today’s psychoaffective medications. • Analyze the more common neurotransmitters and their role in both drug action and side effects. • Discuss adverse drug reactions including nutritional (metabolic syndrome), cognitive, sexual, and behavioral toxicities associated with psychoaffective medications. • List the major classes of psychopharmacologic medications and how these medications impact illnesses. • Describe psychopharmacologic diagnostic aids, devices, and computerized applications currently available to practitioners in their clinical practice. • Create a treatment strategy for mild, moderate, and severe depression.
