How can this program help you improve the way you care for your patients?

Mood disorders are among the most common mental health illnesses and for family physicians managing these conditions can be challenging. This workshop helps you learn current best evidence and practical and realistic approaches and strategies that you can apply in your practice.

How could you benefit from this program?

After the workshop, participants highlighted that they planned to adopt the following in their practices: a) the use of patient questionnaires, b) choosing the best option for mood disorder medication based on the clinical context, and c) using measurement scales in the identification and treatment of mental illness.

“The things which led to the degree of success I had were my own personal motivation to improve my practice by implementing the information/skills I obtained and also the program itself which was excellent and provided me with the foundation I needed to succeed. I plan to continue to incorporate the knowledge and skills I gained from this program into my practice in helping patients with mood disorders.” - Workshop Participant
