Neuromodulation Therapy: An Update on Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT)

January 29 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$40.00 – $95.00

Mood disorder, particularly Major depressive disorder, continues to be prevalent in our society.  Diagnostic acumen of clinicians have significantly improved.  Psychopharmacologic and psychological approaches to management and treatment have been abundant.  Despite our best efforts, a major study such as the Sequenced Treatment Alternatives to Relieve Depression (STAR*D)  trial showed that only about 70-80 percent would achieve remission from their symptoms. Treatment resistant depression (TRD) or mood disorder continue to affect individual patients, families, and society at large. In view of this, neuromodulation therapy such as electroconvulsive therapy continues to be a successful alternative. In 2008, the Food and Drug Administration approved repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) for the treatment of severe depression. 

Participants in the educational activity will be able to: 

  1. Describe the basic principles of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT). 
  2. Identify the clinical indications of TMS and ECT. 
  3. Understand the potential side-effects of TMS and ECT. 
  4. Describe the emerging and new clinical tends in TMS and ECT.
