New Clinical Track Offers Practical Strategies

The new Clinical Updates Track scheduled for APA’s Annual Meeting in New Orleans in May will offer an ocean of clinical pearls to gather. The track features 19 sessions that will cover a plethora of topics and is designed for psychiatrists who are seeking practical information to incorporate directly into practice.

The sessions will provide a brief overview of the topic, then cover how to conduct assessments and make diagnoses; how to address a patient’s primary complaint among other problems or conditions that need to be addressed during a typical psychiatry outpatient visit; guidance on when to refer a patient to a specialist; and evidence-based strategies for treatment, including the latest medications and therapies. The sessions will also allow time for questions and answers.

The track consists of these sessions:
