Course Description: A diagnosis of bipolar II disorder (BPII) is accompanied by a need to make complex treatment decisions about mood-stabilizing medications and adjunctive psychological therapies. Treatment decisions for bipolar II disorder are multi-faceted and should take into account patient preferences along with the risks and benefits of each treatment protocol. Researchers concluded that patients and their families found the decision aid to be informative, balanced, helpful, and easy to use in the treatment planning process. Overall, assessed factors related to both qualities of the decision-making process (e.g., decisional conflict) and outcomes (e.g., knowledge and values-concordant choice) confirmed the potential usefulness of the decision-aids for supporting informed BPII treatment choices.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the 2 study aims and the methods related to treatment decision aids for BPII patients and their families
  2. Analyze the data by exploring the statistical tests used in conjunction with the discussed findings
