Primary Care Psychiatry: Practical Skills for Internal Medicine Physicians: 2024 Video Recordings Package

Internal Medicine Meeting Recordings

Expert clinician-educators will provide a practical, evidence-based update for internal medicine physicians on approaches to interviewing patients with the goal of recognizing, diagnosing, treating, and/or referring patients with commonly encountered mental health disorders. Faculty with training in both internal medicine and psychiatry will emphasize the importance of a patient-centered approach, motivational interviewing, and quick cognitive behavioral techniques that can be quickly used in medical settings. A practical overview of psychopharmacology strategies in the general medical setting will also be discussed. Faculty will focus on psychiatric diagnoses that are prevalent in general medical practice, including major depressive disorder, anxiety disorders, trauma-related disorders, substance use disorders, chronic pain, and bipolar mood disorders, with a goal of improving recognition, confidence in management, and effectiveness of referral. 

This high-yield collection of virtual lectures will cover:

  • updates on practical patient-centered interview strategies to detect treatable mental illness
  • current best practices regarding management of depression, anxiety, and substance use disorders in primary care and specialty medical settings
  • practical approaches to prescribing and monitoring common psychotropic medications, with a goal of facilitating management as well as communication with psychiatric care providers
    • Antidepressants in medical practice 
    • Antipsychotics in medical practice
