Description

On behalf of the Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego, (UCSD) School of Medicine, it is our privilege to invite you to participate in the UCSD CME course Psychopharmacology of Aging: From Dementia and Mood Disorders to Successful Aging. This conference will be held immediately following the International College of Geriatric Psychoneuropharmacology.

This conference brings together an internationally renowned faculty of speakers who have conducted cutting-edge research on a wide spectrum of psychiatric syndromes in geriatric psychopharmacology and treatments. This program is divided into three sessions that address important issues. The speakers will present the latest findings on the pharmacologic and psychosocial treatments of mood disorders, dementia and novel concepts about successful and unsuccessful aging. Participation in this course will allow the participants to earn 15.5 credits (11.5 for the general session and 4 for the pre-conference workshop.)

The conference will also feature intensive pre-conference sessions on assessing cognition, utilizing CBT therapies and treating patients with multiple physical problems. The emphasis will be on advanced clinical problems and new information and practical strategies for contemporary clinical challenges.

The program is intended for psychiatrists, primary care physicians, geriatricians, pharmacists, clinical psychologists, social workers, marriage and family counselors, nurses, physician assistants and other health professionals interested in psychopharmacology. The conference moderators will encourage questions and discussions between the audience and faculty.

We cordially invite you to join us for this exciting and informative program. We look forward to hosting you in San Diego, America’s finest city.
