Course Description

This is a tremendously exciting time in geriatric psychiatry, as new advances and increasing knowledge in the field are leading to improved care and management of patients. Keeping up with all of this information, however, is a daunting challenge, especially for practicing clinicians.

McLean Hospital is pleased to offer Geriatric Psychiatry in 2006. This intensive, two-day course is designed to update participants in numerous aspects of geriatric psychiatry, including recent advances in the understanding and treatment of dementia and delirium, late-life psychosis, mood and anxiety disorders, late-life addiction, and personality disorders. A variety of treatment modalities will be covered, including psychopharmacology and psychotherapy. Broader topics will also be covered, including an overview of the importance of geriatric psychiatry, forensic issues, an update on Medicare, and exercise and health in the elderly.
Our widely acclaimed faculty features internationally renowned speakers as well as expert clinicians in specialized practices. They will decisively review and synthesize recent advances in geriatric psychiatry in an easy-to-understand manner.

Course Objectives

  1. Learn about the diagnosis and management of mood disorders, dementia, delirium, psychosis, personality disorders and substance abuse in the geriatric population.
  2. Explore medical aspects of geriatric psychiatry.
  3. Explore factors that impact the delivery of care in geriatric psychiatry.
