Bipolar disorder is a severe psychiatric disorder that is frequently associated with persistent symptoms and significant dysfunction.
Evidence suggests that the symptoms of bipolar disorder are recurrent and can worsen over repeated relapses. Even patients who follow treatment advice are still at a high relapse risk. Repeated relapses and rehospitalizations are main distresses, indicating a “downward spiral” of declined functioning and greater dependency on support and care by others.1 The goal is to effectively manage symptoms and prevent relapse.
In this CME Outfitters patient case and expert consult Q & A session, faculty will go in-depth with the case study answering your questions while offering evidence, guidelines, and quality measures to manage residual symptoms and avoid relapse in patients with bipolar disorder.
