Managing Bipolar Disorder - Geraldton


The diagnosis and management of bipolar disorder presents many challenges to primary care clinicians. This six-hour highly interactive program explores the key issues and difficulties in the detection and treatment of bipolar disorder, equipping the clinician with the knowledge and skills required to deliver an integrated pharmacological and psychological approach best suited to the needs of people living with bipolar disorder.
