  • 100-18: Paradigm Shift in Treating Mental Illness: Neurophysiological Approach to Prescribing

    Contains 5 Component(s), 1.5 credits offered

    Presenter: Barbara J. Limandri, PhD, PMHCNS-BC - 1.50 pharmacology contact hours

    100-18:  Paradigm Shift in Treating Mental Illness: Neurophysiological Approach to Prescribing

    There is a strong body of evidence indicating that neurobiological changes in the brain/body contribute to psychiatric symptoms. Many of these symptoms are treated with drugs, which are chemicals designed to act on naturally occurring chemicals in the CNS (e.g., neurotransmitters) or neural structures (e.g., neurotransmitter transporters, neural membranes). Practitioners use evidence-based data when prescribing medications which are based on patients’ neurobiological changes and the drugs that target those changes. The content will be applied to a case study at the end of the session.

    102-18: Microbiome, Gut, Hormones, Brain Connections in Mental Health/Addictions

    This session includes the two presentations described below.

    This nurse researcher uses plain language to explain how she studies altered gut permeability in patients with previously negative clinical findings, revealing microscopic changes in the GI tract in response to stress. She is able to demonstrate with science that chronic abdominal pain is not just “all in your head”. 
    Presenter: Wendy A. Henderson, PhD, MSN, CRNP, FAAN

    This presentation details how gut-brain axis, using the neurohormone ghrelin, is studied in addictions research. Ghrelin signals the brain for food seeking and reward, and may help to explain alcohol seeking behaviors. The goal of this research is new drug development for the treatment of addictive disorders. 
    Presenter: Lorenzo Leggio, MD, PhD, MSc

    Disclosures: Lorenzo Leggio, MD, PhD, MSc has indicated a significant financial interest or other affiliation with UK MCA and Oxford Press (honorarium) and Routeledge (book royalties). Wendy A.
