Psychiatry Redefined
 

The goal of this symposium (available on demand) is to help clinicians understand both the utility and limitations of genetic testing in psychiatric practice. Our expert speakers, both researchers and clinicians, will share some of the scientific evidence for the role of pharmacogenomics in psychiatry.  They will review some of the most common genes associated with various psychiatric disorders.  They will also present practical pearls so you may learn how to use genetic testing to improve patient outcomes.


Who Should Attend this Symposium?

This symposium is ideal for the following professions:

  • Psychiatrists
  • Psychiatric & Mental Health Nurse Practitioners and Nurses
  • Functional Medicine Physicians
  • Integrative Medicine Physicians

What You’ll Learn

Learn from renowned experts in the field of genetic testing about important topics, including:

  • The basics of psychiatric pharmacogenomics – pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamic, and immunogenic genes
  • How to interpret genotype and phenotype information in the context of medication
  • The evidence base for clinically actionable gene-drug interactions
  • The role of specific genes like MAO-A and COMT in disorders like ADHD, Anxiety, and Bipolar Disorder
  • Using pharmacogenomics to address brain-gut axis dysfunction and psychiatric comorbidities
  • The role of MTHFR and the dangers of both insufficient and excess folate in mental health disorders
  • Practical, clinical application of pharmacogenomics with a review of multiple case studies

 

What is Psychiatry Redefined?

  • An educational platform for practitioners who seek to move beyond symptom management or suppression and instead offer patients real recovery.
  • A beacon of hope for individuals struggling with mental illness who are tired of ineffective treatments and ‘one size fits all’ interventions who seek personalized care.
  • A bridge between discovery and application that infuses integrated therapeutic models with the very latest in scientific research.
  • A vision brought to life for mental health professionals, patients, family members, and caregivers that focuses not only on neurologic health but also physical and emotional wellness. A functional roadmap integrating mind and body together in order to achieve balance and lasting health.
  • A new model to move the field of psychiatry along a path illuminated by science.
