Primary Care Psychiatry: Practical Skills for Internists: 2023 Video Recordings Package

Internal Medicine Meeting Recordings

Internal medicine physicians are often on the “front lines” in both specialty and primary care settings for the assessment and treatment of psychiatric disorders. Most psychiatric disorders are treated by nonbehavioral specialists, and more than 80% of antidepressants are prescribed by non-psychiatrists. Formal psychiatric training for internists is often limited and does not cover foundational topics, which are relevant to everyday practice in the general medical setting. This Pre-Course, recorded in conjunction with the Internal Medicine Meeting 2023, provides a practical, evidence-based update for internists on approaches to interviewing patients with the goal of recognizing, diagnosing, treating, and/or referring patients with mental health disorders. Expert clinician-educators with training in both internal medicine and psychiatry emphasize the importance of a patient-centered approach, motivational interviewing, and basic cognitive behavioral techniques that can be quickly used in medical settings. An overview on psychopharmacology strategies in the general medical setting is also discussed. Faculty focus on psychiatric diagnoses that are prevalent in medical practice, including major depressive disorder, anxiety disorders, trauma-related disorders, and bipolar mood disorders, with a goal of improving recognition, confidence in management, and effectiveness of referral.
