Recognizing and managing psychotic and mood disorders in primary care
The diagnosis and management of psychotic and mood disorders is an evolving process and an important clinical topic for primary care clinicians. Although many reports exist on the prevalence and treatment of depression in primary care, far less information is available about patients in this setting with depression accompanied by symptoms of mania or hypomania.
To facilitate a dialogue on the identification and treatment of psychotic and mood disorders, an actual patient case is presented by an expert faculty member, followed by a panel discussion in which the faculty’s collective experience lends further practical insights into the nuances of management of such patients in both inpatient and outpatient settings.
We hope the insights you glean from this exchange of practical clinical issues will enhance and confirm your own approach to diagnosing and treating patients with psychotic and mood disorders.
