Lindner Center of HOPE Offers Free CME Virtual Conference

Crossing the Line: From Dual Diagnosis to Complex Comorbidity A Deeper and Wider Approach to Patient Care

Jennifer Pierson, Senior Director, Marketing and Outreach, Lindner Center of HOPE

Virtually all psychiatric disorders co-occur with other mental health conditions, medical issues and at times addictions. With this knowledge it has been noted that patient populations now reflect complex comorbidity rather than just dual diagnosis or co-occurring. Put simply, patients consistently exhibit three or more significant challenges to their well-being. This presentation will highlight the importance of identifying complex comorbidity in order to improve patient outcomes.

On Wednesday, October 13, 2021 from 12 to 2:30 pm EST, Lindner Center of HOPE is offering a free 2.25 CME/CEU credit virtual conference for healthcare and mental health professionals.
