Bipolar Disorder in Later Life

Saturday, October 27
4:15 PM - 5:30 PM
Location: Tangerine WF1

Given aging/global demographics, older adults with bipolar disorder (OABD) are a growing segment of patients with bipolar disorder. In 2016, the International Society for Bipolar Disorder arranged a task force to publish a brief report on treatment recommendations for OABD. This session will build on the report, educate participants about OABD, review new research, and provide recommendations for treatment options.
