2021 Annual Psychiatric Times® World CME Conference™ Overview

The treatment of psychiatric disease is evolving with advances in imaging and genomic profiling and the emergence of investigational molecules as potential new treatments for prevalent psychiatric disorders. With these advancements it is important that psychiatrists, along with members of the multidisciplinary care team, understand the latest clinical developments and how to best apply that knowledge in clinical practice.

The 2021 Annual Psychiatric Times® World CME Conference™ is the perfect educational venue for addressing knowledge gaps related to the application of new strategies in psychiatry to real-world clinical practice. This meeting will showcase expert presentations and panel discussions of best practices for managing challenging psychiatric diagnoses, including major depressive disorder, substance use disorders, manic-depressive disorder, schizophrenia, women’s health, and more. This program provides the ideal curriculum for psychiatrists and other health care providers by creating the opportunity to review patient scenarios, reflecting on how to handle challenging cases, integrating relevant evidence into real-world patient management, and comparing their practices with those of experts and peers through a vehicle that enhances learning of key emerging treatment concepts and improvement of deficiencies in clinical competency. Emerging treatments and data from ongoing clinical trials that may impact clinical practice in the near future will also be addressed during this 3-day educational program.

Physicians' Education Resource®’s top priority is ensuring the safety and security of our attendees, staff, and operational personnel. We are dedicated to remaining informed about the ongoing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic at the global and local levels.
