CME LLC Announces the Launch of the CME Activity Advances in the Management of Major Depressive Disorders

JERSEY CITY, N.J., Jan. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CME LLC has officially launched an online educational activity titled "Advances in the Management of Major Depressive Disorders" on Developed for psychiatrists, primary care physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals, this Case Challenge activity is intended to provide possible treatment options and individualized management approaches, including the augmentation of antidepressant therapy with folate formulations, for consideration when treating patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) in order to provide optimal patient outcomes. This activity is supported by an educational grant from Pamlab, L.L.C.

C. Brendan Montano, MD, the Director of Research at Connecticut Clinical Research, in Cromwell, Connecticut and Richard C. Shelton, MD, a James G. Blakemore Professor in the Department of Psychiatry, Professor in Departments of Psychology and Pharmacology, and Vice-Chair of Clinical Research at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, Tennessee comprise the faculty for the activity.

Cased-based methods of learning are extremely effective in getting across educational messages and demonstrating practical strategies. In this Case Challenge activity, participants are encouraged to determine treatment strategies based on case histories and patient presentations. "Non-response to antidepressant therapy, as defined by the presence or absence of full recovery of depression, is the rule rather than the exception for the treatment of depression, even in the primary care setting. This CME activity presents real-world examples of the management of depression to full remission. As such, I think it will provide practitioners practical strategies for managing depression to wellness." – Richard C. Shelton

Upon completion of the activity, participants should be able to:

  • Utilize evidence-based strategies to best sequence administration of antidepressant therapy with adjunctive therapies to enhance response rates and achieve remission
  • Compare and contrast the long-term efficacy, safety, and tolerability of adjunctive therapies indicated for depression to better individualize therapy
  • Understand the relationship between folate and depression, including the contribution of folate to monoamine deficiencies, to determine patient type
  • Review currently available sources of folate supplementation and their potential role in MDD management

The online activity is CME-certified and approved for nursing contact hours.  It will be available through October 31, 2012.
