Bipolar depression affects a wide range of populations. There is a broad heterogeneity of presentations that can affect the course of illness and its treatment. As a result, there is no “one size fits all” approach to the management of those with the disorder. Are you well versed in these differences? Then test your knowledge!
World-renowned experts Roger S. McIntyre, MD, from the University of Toronto and Jeffrey R. Strawn, MD, from the University of Cincinnati explore contemporary topics in the management of bipolar depression by evaluating factual and nonfactual assertions. Audience members have the opportunity to test their knowledge using interactive polling to “vote” on each question. After judging the clinical accuracy of each statement, Dr. McIntyre and Dr. Strawn will provide a detailed explanation of the correct response based on the latest evidence-based data. Topics include strategies for recognition and evidence-based treatment of bipolar depression in children and adolescents, challenges in diagnosing and managing bipolar depression in older adults, and complex presentations of depression and subsyndromal hypomania or mania.
