  2. Diagnosing and Treating Patients With Mixed Features

    Rakesh Jain (Chair) et al

    Descriptions of mixed states can be found in the writings of ancient Greek physicians, and the concept continues to be refined. In this CME activity, join experts as they review the current diagnostic criteria for depressive episodes with mixed features, the risk of developing bipolar disorder in patients with this diagnosis, and recent treatment guidelines.

  3. Available Tools for Assessing Cognitive Impairment in Major Depressive Disorder

    Roger S. McIntyre

    You know that measuring cognition in your patients with depression is important. But cognitive assessment instruments can be difficult to access, expensive, time consuming, and not available in an electronic format. Read this CME activity to learn about a new free tool.

  4. Advanced Topics in Major Depressive Disorder: Practical Strategies to Improve Remission

    Rakesh Jain

    Most patients with major depressive disorder will not achieve remission with initial treatment. Strategies to increase the likelihood of achieving remission include regularly measuring response, assessing adverse effects and adherence, addressing non-mood symptoms, and knowing when to switch or augment antidepressants. In this CME Health Spectrum activity, follow 2 patient cases that illustrate these topics.

  5. Comparing Treatments for Tardive Dyskinesia

    Leslie L. Citrome

    Many treatment interventions for tardive dyskinesia have been studied, but some have better evidence than others. Read this CME activity to get an expert's perspectives on the evidence for older and newer treatments so that you can minimize abnormal movements in your patients.

  6. Strategies for Managing Patients With Depression Who Are Experiencing Cognitive Impairment

    Larry Culpepper

    Pronounced deficits in executive function are found in up to one-third of patients with MDD, and this impairment can keep patients from achieving full functional recovery.
