Description of CME Course
Grand Rounds comprise the Department of Psychiatry’s primary continuing education activity for faculty and selected staff. For the vast majority of these individuals, continuing education credit is required for maintenance of certification, both from the standpoint of licensure as well as board membership renewal. Faculty include licensed and board certified Psychiatrists and Psychologists. Selected staff include nurses, physicians assistants and Pharm Ds.
Lectures and other presentations done at Grand Rounds target faulty and staff learning needs identified in mid-year and year-end surveys. Most educational gaps/faculty learning needs entail enhancements in communication skills. This year’s learning needs include information on the impact of cultural competency on patient/caregiver relationships, the need for more information regarding the effectiveness of Electroconvulsive Therapy, as well as characteristics of patients most likely to benefit from this form of treatment, as well as information regarding the pharmacologic management of agitated patients who are also intoxicated and/or under the influence of drugs.
