Using Meta-analysis to Determine the Most Effective Treatments for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
Oct. 22, 2015; 1-2:30 p.m. (ET)
This webinar will review the current guidelines for the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) at all points in the treatment continuum. It will highlight the significant areas where current major guidelines (VA/DoD, WHO, NICE, APA and ISTSS) are not in agreement including medications versus therapy, individual medications and behavioral therapies. The presenter will discuss variances in the evaluation of data that resulted in these differences and will review an evaluation of current studies in the form of four meta-analyses looking at more than17,000 citations for best evidence-based treatment.
Webinar participants will be able to:
- Restate the current guidelines for the treatment of PTSD
- Differentiate between the current evidence for medication versus behavioral therapy as evidence-based treatment
- Identify medications with the best evidence supporting their use for PTSD
- Compare behavioral therapies with the best evidence supporting their use for PTSD
