Designed for psychiatrists, this continuing medical education live activity will provide information to maintain and expand competency and medical knowledge. Psychiatrists in clinical practice are short of the ideal based on the knowledge and evidence base in psychiatry and neuroscience. There are practical limitations based on delivery systems that contribute to this gap. This NCPA Annual Meeting program aims to address these gaps in areas most relevant to our members’ clinical activities, touching on adults and children/adolescents, addictions, consequences of trauma and schizophrenia.
This activity is a mechanism to claim credit for attendance at the live event held in Myrtle Beach, NC from 9/15 - 9/17/2017.
