Overview

Depression is the most common psychiatric disorder and the leading cause of disability worldwide. The most recent data from the National Institute of Mental Health indicate that major depressive disorder (MDD) affects approximately 16 million adults in the United States (almost 7% of the adult population) in any given year. The impact of MDD is substantial, as more than 50% of adults with the disorder experience some degree of difficulty with work, home, or social activities because of their symptoms. Family physicians are often the first to identify, diagnose, and initiate treatment for mental health conditions. However, improvement in physicians’ monitoring of patients’ response to antidepressant therapy, incorporating shared decision-making when switching antidepressants, and incorporating psychotherapy is needed. In this live continuing medical education activity, expert faculty will discuss methods to optimize the care of patients with MDD. The program will also include the interactive, audience-engaging educational gaming platform, Game On!
