The Brain and Cognition Discovery Foundation (BCDF) in cooperation with the Philippine Psychiatric Association (PPA) is proud to offer a new and innovative curriculum designed to create a ‘knowledge-transfer’ to both psychiatrists in-training and in-practice about Mood Disorders.
During the past decade, consensus exists that the absence of transformative treatments in Mood Disorders is a consequence of insufficient knowledge regarding disease patho-etiology, resiliency, and appropriate targets.
Advances in cellular/molecular techniques, as well as bioinformatics and trans-omic capabilities, are providing an opportunity to refine disease models, discover development, and repurpose genuinely novel approaches that are not simply palliative but are instead disease-modifying. The rapid expanse of treatment options invites the need for busy practitioners to be familiar with extant evidence in order to provide for affected patients evidence-based, measurement-informed, high-quality, coordinated care.
This eight (8) session Master Certificate Course has three objectives:
To provide participants with an up-to-date, in-depth understanding of advances in neuroscience, as it relates to disease modelling in adults with Mood Disorders.
To expose participants to recent evidence as it relates to social and cultural detereminants of health/disease and its implications for trans-domain psychopathology and Mood Disorders.
To review existing pharmacologic, psychosocial, neuromodulatory, and other treatment approaches capable of symptom management in Mood Disorders, as well as introduction of novel pharmacologic treatment pathways currently being studied as disease-modifying approaches in individuals with Mood Disorders.
