This session will describe various mental disorders, discuss pharmacological and nonpharmacological interventions, and review current CMS regulations regarding psychotropic medications.
An additional presentation entitled Medical Marijuana – Clinical and Legal Update 2019 will help providers understand the scope and limitations of the Ohio Medical marijuana program from a legal perspective and analyze the clinical evidence or at times the lack thereof, supporting the use of medical marijuana. Isabelle Bibet-Kalinyak, a health care attorney, will be a co-presenter with Coniglio.
“This is a great privilege for us to help inform key leaders on psychiatric issues in the long term care space,” states Coniglio.
