NYU/Bellevue Psychopharmacology Annual Review

Course Description

The treatment of mental disorders continues to evolve. This is the result of new insights into the underlying pathology of many disorders, the introduction of new medications and improved understanding of how to use existing therapies. Psychopharmacology is actually becoming obsolete as a term to describe non-psychotherapy based interventions. Due to the increasing use of neurostimulation modalities, neurosurgery, anti-inflammatory agents and infusions to treat refractory disorders, psychopharmacology now is part of what can be described as applied neuroscience. This annual, one-day course is intended for psychiatrists and neurologists. Other interested physicians and allied health professionals will also find this course useful. Nurses and physician’s assistants will benefit from attending the program. The course planners design the program to provide expert reviews of evidence that has become available over the past year that should be considered in making decisions about treatment selection and use. The benefits and risks of various treatments are presented. Based on new information, some longstanding practices may need to be revised. Presentations will be concise and will be supplemented by a syllabus that attendees can use as the basis for ongoing learning after the course is completed.

Target Audience
