Updated Diagnosis, Treatment, and Medication of Patients with Bipolar Disorder

Presenter: Ashish Anand, MD

PROGRAM (2 CE credits):
Few psychiatric diagnoses have the ability to stir up so much controversy as bipolar disorder. What we think of today as bipolar disorder has been around as long as humanity. So in some ways the presentation is easy to spot. On the other hand, overlap with other diagnoses, varied presentation, and debates over diagnostic criteria and treatments complicate the picture.

PRESENTER:
Ashish Anand, MD, is board certified in Child, Adolescent, and Adult Psychiatry. He completed his Child Psychiatry fellowship at New York Presbyterian Hospital (in the combined Columbia and Cornell program) where he served as the Chief Fellow at Columbia. Both his medical school and residency training were in Boston (Boston Medical Center/ BU School of Medicine). Dr. Anand is currently in private Practice in Ridgewood, NJ. He also is an attending psychiatrist at a partial care program caring for patients with serious mental illness, including bipolar disorder.

Learning Objectives: This workshop is designed to help participants:
* be able to describe and explain the diagnosis of bipolar disorder and its varied presentations.
* be able to establish a differential diagnosis and to demonstrate how the diagnosis of bipolar disorder overlaps with other disorders
* explain the pathophysiology of bipolar disorder and describe the current treatments offered.
