 programming and related healthcare communications services, is pleased to announce an upcoming live and interactive evidence-based psychCME TALK audioconference series titled "Depression with Atypical Features Part I: Recognition, Diagnosis, and Management."

 “  CME Outfitters in the News  
Offered as a series of 15 live and interactive audioconferences premiering Tuesday, June 20, 2006, from 2:15–3:15 p.m. ET, the series will focus on providing evidence-based educational information and clinical context regarding the efficacy of medications used in the treatment of depression with atypical features. This CE activity will also be available as an archived telephone audioconference shortly after the audioconference premiere, and available as an archived webcast, podcast, and multimedia CD-ROM in July.

Statement of Need:
Depression with atypical features is characterized by mood reactivity in conjunction with any two of the following - hypersomnia, leaden paralysis, hyperphagia, and interpersonal rejection sensitivity. Some data show that patients with depression with atypical features experience greater functional impairment than their non-atypical counterparts, as well as exhibiting more interpersonal sensitivity, more chronic dysphoria, and more bipolar II disorder. There is some uncertainty regarding how to best characterize patients with depression with atypical features because patients with bipolar disorder, anxious depression, and personality disorder all share similar presentations. Over the years, treatment of depression with atypical features has ranged from monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), tricyclic antidepressants, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, bupropion, venlafaxine, and cognitive behavioral therapy. Emerging data demonstrate that newer delivery systems may provide a statistically significant and improved antidepressant benefit. In this first of a two-part evidence-based and interactive CME Outfitters/psychCME TALK series, the experts will help clinicians to recognize, diagnose, and manage depression with atypical features. Part two will incorporate the information from this session and focus on clinical case studies of patients with this condition. It will be introduced later this year.
