Article excerpt

Dear Colleague:

On behalf of the American Academy of Clinical Psychiatrists and Current Psychiatry we are pleased to present our 2018 Psychiatry Update Encore Presentation.

This highly practical, educational meeting will offer 2.5 days of clinically useful information and up to 19 CME/CE Credits, including your entire year's ABPN Self Assessment (SA) requirement, plus credit toward your Maintenance of Certification (MOC).

In our interactive, learning-focused format, nationally renowned faculty will provide best practice information specifically designed to address the everyday challenges of improving outcomes for your patients.

As always, our meeting offers an outstanding opportunity for peer-to-peer learning and networking. With question and answers allotted for every session, there is ample time to share best practices and find solutions to your most difficult clinical challenges.

Attend as a member! AACP members enjoy many benefits, including an additional $200 discount to attend a Psychiatry Update. Visit AACP.com for complete details.

In addition to the CP/AACP program, this year a post-conference Opioid REMS Course is being offered free to conference attendees (3 CME/CE credits available). The current opioid epidemic requires all health care providers to have basic knowledge about balancing the risks and benefits of opioids. We hope you can join us for this comprehensive course which incorporates all six units outlined in the FDA blueprint for safe opioid prescribing by discussing biopsychosocial aspects of pain, the newest clinical guidelines on the treatment of chronic pain, and state policies about prescribing opioids.
