Although the world seems to be more advanced and with more opportunity than ever before, there are millions of people out there struggling with clinical depression. Depression can be completely debilitating and restrict people from living the lives that they deserve. For years, we’ve been focusing on anti-depressant medications and other methods that can be beneficial, but they only do so much. TMS Health Solutions is trailblazing the way for transcranial magnetic stimulation technology, which has shown incredible results when it comes to treating people who are suffering from depression.
In August, you can come join the Hands-On TMS Symposium where you can learn everything you need to know about transcranial magnetic stimulation and how it can help you when treating your patients. The symposium is going to be complete course that was developed by the leading clinicians and researchers in the field as well as the latest information from psychiatrists as well as physicians. By having a better understanding of how TMS therapy can help people recover from depression, you’ll be able to give your patients the best care possible.
What is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation?
Through years of research, we have more information about how depression actually affects the brain. Those struggling with depression are sometimes having the lack of production with neurotransmitters like serotonin, endorphins, norepinephrine and more. Most of the anti-depressant medications out there are designed to help stimulate neurotransmitters like serotonin, but there’s a certain ceiling of results for these medications. Now, we know that there’s much more involved with depression and how the brain is functioning, and TMS therapy can help.
TMS Health Solutions provides TMS education to teach mental health professionals how this new form of therapy can help with clinical depression. Transcranial magnetic stimulation works by sending small, magnetic pulses to specific areas of the brain to help the brain begin healing. Your patients will be able to come in for TMS therapy, and they’ll begin seeing results within a matter of weeks. In order to better understand the benefits of transcranial magnetic stimulation, the Hands-On TMS Symposium will be providing three days of workshops and classes for you to gain all of the knowledge that you need.
Getting Involved at the Symposium
The course content is going to address all of the details of the science that underlies how transcranial magnetic stimulation works. Through the course training, you’re going to learn about the efficacy of TMS when it comes to treating forms of clinical depression like major depressive disorder. You’ll see the studies and the data that show how TMS therapy has been able to help those who have treatment-resistant forms of depression. The additional topics will cover who the right patients are for TMS, the treatment planning process as well as patient management during and after TMS therapy.
Throughout the symposium, you’ll be involved with the entire process of how to perform TMS therapy, through hands-on demonstrations. TMS Health Solutions provides learner participation, panel discussion, group discussions and round tables and much more. There will also be a panel discussion and lecture with a question and answer potion, so you can ensure that any questions you have will be addressed. Throughout the event, you’ll also learn more about desirable physician attributes such as patient care, procedural skills, medical knowledge and system-based practice.
What Are the Desired Outcomes of the Symposium
By the time you leave the symposium, you’ll have a better understanding about how TMS therapy is going to help patients are your private practice or treatment facility. The entire mechanism of action of transcranial magnetic stimulation will be explained as well as any risks. You’ll have a complete knowledge of any of the potential side effects of TMS, so when you’re looking to identify the appropriate patients for this form of therapy, you will know who can benefit the most. With this knowledge, you’ll be able to develop a trusting relationship with your patients where you can answer any questions they have about the process as well as the results they’re seeing or not seeing at different points of the process.
The symposium is also a fully accredited event through the CME Institute. The entire activity as been planned and structured with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). This event will also give you credits through The CME Institute of Physicians Postgraduate Process, Inc. Designating and enduring the material at the symposium can provide you with a maximum of 24.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
The Hands-On TMS Symposium is taking place in San Francisco at the Grand Hyatt in Union Square from Thursday, August 15th through Sunday, August 18th. For more information, please give us a call at 844-867-8445.
