Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy (TMS Therapy) is a safe and effective treatment for individuals diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) who have not experienced satisfactory improvement from antidepressant medication. TMS Therapy can be used in conjunction with medication or as a stand-alone treatment.
TMS Therapy works by delivering magnetic pulses to specific areas of the brain involved in mood regulation – areas known to be underactive in those diagnosed with MDD. The magnetic pulses stimulate brain cells, thereby improving the brain’s ability to regulate mood.
Come and learn more about TMS on September 29, 2017 at 1pm when DCPA presents this interesting, informative workshop. Learn clinical application, biological effects, predictors of response, and other issues of this approach.
Workshop Objectives: At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to :
- Discuss the history of TMS clinical application of treatment
- Identify the appropriate patient for TMS Therapy.
