Date:3/19/2009

CHICAGO, March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- A national audience of psychiatrists and psychiatric advanced practitioners is gathering in Chicago April 2-4, 2009 for the continuing medical education (CME) conference "Bipolar Disorder and ADHD: Solving Clinical Challenges, Improving Patient Care" at the Westin Chicago River North.

More than 300 clinicians have registered for the conference, which is being produced by CURRENT PSYCHIATRY publisher Dowden Health Media and the American Academy of Clinical Psychiatrists (AACP). Psychiatrists and advanced practitioners can still register to attend at the meeting's Web site (www.CurrentPsychiatry.com/AACP). The meeting has been approved for up to 18.5 AMA PRA Category 1 CME credits.

"CURRENT PSYCHIATRY'S expertise in creating peer-reviewed content and managing events dovetails perfectly with the AACP's mission to provide information-sharing forums for psychiatric practitioners and academicians," said AACP President Sanjay Gupta, MD. "Together, we have assembled a compelling program."

The faculty of psychiatric educators and clinicians includes meeting chair Richard Balon, MD, Wayne State University; Kiki Chang, MD, Stanford University; Marlene Freeman, MD, Massachusetts General Hospital; S. Nassir Ghaemi, MD, MPH, Tufts Medical Center; Joseph Goldberg, MD, Mount Sinai School of Medicine; and Frederick Goodwin, MD, George Washington University.

Topics to be discussed at this learning-focused meeting include:

  • ADHD in children, adolescents, and adults
  • managing bipolar disorder during pregnancy and the postpartum
  • use of stimulants, antidepressants, antipsychotics, and mood stabilizers in patients with bipolar disorder
  • alcohol abuse in patients with bipolar disorder and ADHD.

*Exhibiting companies include: AstraZeneca, Neuronetics, Prescribing for Better Outcomes (University of North Carolina), Shire Pharmaceuticals and Teva Pharmaceuticals.

Dowden Health Media, a division of Lebhar-Friedman, Inc., publishes CURRENT PSYCHIATRY and other peer-reviewed print and online journals such as OBG MANAGEMENT, THE JOURNAL OF FAMILY PRACTICE, and MAYO CLINIC PROCEEDINGS. Dowden also produces CME conferences such as the Minimally Invasive Surgery Symposium (MISS), promotional education programs for physicians, and health-related consumer newsletters and Web sites.

The American Academy of Clinical Psychiatrists (www.AACP.com) brings together clinical practitioners and academicians to enhance care of patients with psychiatric illness by emphasizing practical knowledge. Members keep abreast of scientific developments in the diagnosis, etiology, and treatment of psychiatric disorders through annual conferences, online communications, and the indexed journal, the Annals of Clinical Psychiatry.

* Determination of educational content for this program and the selection of speakers are responsibilities of the meeting chair. Firms providing exhibit and commercial support did not have input in these areas.
