    E78 - (CME) Help on the Horizon: Novel Treatments in Schizophrenia

    E78 - (CME) Help on the Horizon: Novel Treatments in Schizophrenia

    Schizophrenia is a chronic and debilitating disorder that creates a substantial burden not only for patients but also for their families. The high rates of treatment resistance, relapse rates, and incidence of adverse side effects in patients with schizophrenia suggest that a major treatment gap continues to exist. Given the high rates of treatment resistance, novel strategies and therapeutic approaches beyond D2 receptor blockade are being intensively studied. What are some of these novel approaches? How effective are they in the treatment of schizophrenia? What medications are available, or emerging that target neurotransmitters systems beyond dopamine? In this podcast episode, Dr. Jonathan Meyer and Dr. Leslie Citrome discuss some of the ground-breaking work in this field, and how you can better treat patients with schizophrenia.

    E76 - (CME) Coping in Times of Crisis: Mental Health Consequences of the COVID-19 Pandemic

    The years 2019-2020 brought to us coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), resulting in an unprecedented global pandemic. Emerging data, historical studies, and expert opinion point to a tremendous impact of COVID-19 on the development and exacerbation of psychiatric issues. This issue is compounded by the fact that access to mental health care services may be limited during this time of crisis. There is a critical need for mental health care providers to be prepared and educated to best serve the psychiatric needs of patients affected, either directly or indirectly, by the COVID-19 pandemic. There are still many questions. What are the psychological consequences of so many people losing their jobs, and so many businesses shutting down? What are some healthy coping strategies for parents to model at home, to protect their children’s mental health during this pandemic? In this CME NEI podcast episode, Dr. McIntyre answers these questions, and much more.

    E74 - Fear on the Frontlines of COVID-19: Mental Health in Our Frontline Healthcare Workers with Dr. Mona Masood

    E74 - Fear on the Frontlines of COVID-19: Mental Health in Our Frontline Healthcare Workers with Dr. Mona Masood

    Healthcare workers on the frontline, working to save patients with the COVID-19 virus, during this pandemic have been especially vulnerable to mental health consequences and trauma. In the early stages of the global shut-down, Dr. Mona Masood launched the Physician Support Line, a volunteer hotline to support physicians and healthcare providers who were on the frontlines, battling the virus, and the traumatic consequences of doing so, simultaneously. Doctors, nurses, EMTs and other health care workers have been under extremely stressful conditions, increased patient loads without necessary staffing, a lack of personal protective equipment (PPE), and overtime hours, placing them at high risk for contracting the virus themselves. Many have lost colleagues to the virus.  In this episode, learn what inspired her to create this hotline, what it has done for physicians, and how you can get involved.
    Dr. Mona Masood is board certified in general adult psychiatry and is an outpatient psychiatrist in the Ivyland, Pennsylvania area.  She is also the founder of the Physician Support Line and a Board Member of the nonprofit Muslim Wellness Foundation, which provides mental health educational services to the community.

    E73 - (CME) Stimulating Side Effects: What to Do When Your Patient is Using Methamphetamine with Dr. William Sauve

    E73 - (CME) Stimulating Side Effects: What to Do When Your Patient is Using Methamphetamine with Dr. William Sauve

    Methamphetamine is an extremely serious problem in the United States, and it remains one of the most commonly misused stimulant drugs in the world. There are severe psychological, and medical consequences from methamphetamine misuse and abuse. This poses a particular challenge for clinicians treating patients for mental health conditions that are comorbid with substance use disorder (SUD). This is especially challenging when there are also interactions that can alter or influence psychiatric medications used to treat these patients. Questions such as the following arise: Given the high comorbidity of SUD with ADHD, how often should you check drug screens, and what is the threshold for discontinuing the stimulants if tests come back positive? In this podcast episode, Dr. William Sauve’ addresses these concerns, and much more. He also employs strategies to improve communication with patients about being transparent when it comes to using substances.
