Psychiatrists need the latest evidence-based recommendations for clinical decision-making, as well as practical information for assessing and treating disorders they commonly encounter in practice. This critical need is supported by the 2008 Institute of Medicine (IOM) report on evidence-based medicine.

The IOM report indicates a widening gap between a clinician’s cognitive capacity and the number of facts that must be considered in a single clinical decision. The topics to be presented at this activity will focus on selected high-priority clinical issues that will help to address this growing challenge.
