Major depressive disorder is a serious, debilitating illness that affects individuals of all ages and backgrounds. While several efficacious treatments have been developed, many suffering from depression fail to reach full remission and experience lifelong challenges due to the chronic and episodic nature of the disease. Identifying strategies to find the right treatments for patients is critical.One novel treatment that has gained recent popularity is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), a form of neurostimulation. This event will provide insight on how neurostimulation can help patients achieve remission. Noninvasive treatment techniques, including TMS, have a potentially broader clinical application than invasive techniques. Yet there is a need for more familiarity and in-depth understanding among practitioners of how and when to utilize TMS.

Target Audience

This course is designated for general practitioners, psychiatrists, and mental health professionals. 

Learning Objectives

  • Identify and discuss the primary network TMS stimulates at the prefrontal cortex
  • Recognize the effect that magnetic stimulation has on the network and how TMS works with various networks
  • Assess patient criteria for candidacy for best response versus less robust response
  • Examine the benefits of remission for depression treatment using TMS therapy
  • Develop a plan to incorporate TMS with patients’ ongoing care to maintain symptom response
