The burden of mental illness and addictions in the medically ill population is increasing at a staggering rate, especially in safety net settings serving disadvantaged populations.
Healthcare providers working with patients with these challenging co-morbidities will be interested in this opportunity to acquire new and effective theoretical approaches and skills to ensure optimal outcomes in their patients. Conference participants will learn about current research and best practices for addressing issues of substance abuse, chronic pain, geriatric depression, the management of challenging patients with chronic illness, and the management of cardiometabolic effects of typical antipsychotics.
