This webinar is intended for US Formulary decision-makers only.
Differentiating depressive episodes remains a challenge in clinical practice and often results in misdiagnosis and subsequent inappropriate treatment. This can lead to higher costs and healthcare resource utilization, and negative outcomes for patients.
This session will focus on the clinical and economic impact of misdiagnosis of Bipolar I Disorder as Major Depressive Disorder and the importance of earlier recognition and appropriate management. We will also discuss predictive algorithms and how implementation of screening tools may play a role in helping to reduce delays to accurate diagnosis.
