Psychiatry Review: The Challenges of Being a Mental Health Care Provider: Responding with Wisdom and Resilience
The objective of this year’s Psychiatry Review conference is to provide actionable guidance to healthcare professionals across four key topics.
The prevalence of opioid and marijuana use disorders have become major problems in our country. The first half of Day 1 will focus on identifying treatment and outreach strategies for opioid and marijuana use disorders and will provide important information on the development of these disorders among youth.
Burnout among healthcare professionals--emotional exhaustion, depersonalization or cynicism, and low sense of personal accomplishment at work—occurs at alarming rates in the U.S. Consequently, many healthcare and professional organizations are developing initiatives to improve provider wellbeing. The second half of Day 1 will provide resources and information that support provider well-being and prevent burnout among healthcare professionals.
Healthcare professionals provide care to patients from diverse cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds; content from the first half of Day 2 will help attendees recognize the personal and collective barriers to promoting diversity and inclusion in their practices, personal lives, and their communities.
Personality-level dysfunction is often present among patients seen by healthcare professionals and presents a significant challenge for both assessment and treatment. The final half of Day 2 will provide participants with new knowledge of the assessment of personality-level dysfunction in their patients as well as new treatment approaches for borderline personality disorder.
The Psychiatry Review Conference is designed for psychiatrists and other physicians, nurses and nurse practitioners, psychologists, social workers, and other healthcare professionals who manage and treat patients.
Following completion of this activity, learners should be better able to:
- Identify treatment and outreach strategies for opioid and cannabis use disorders & discuss current research findings in the development of cannabis and opioid use disorders in youth
- Describe the factors contributing to clinician burnout, and identify resources available to support provider wellbeing
- Recognize personal and collective barriers to promoting diversity and inclusion in our practices, personal lives and in our communities
- Describe a dimensional approach to characterizing individuals with personality-level dysfunction and new approaches to the treatment of borderline personality disorder
