Annual Meeting
Keeping Up With DSM-5
Psychiatric News
Volume 46 Number 6 page 10-10

Seven sessions will be featured in this year's DSM-5 Track at APA's 2011 annual meeting, including two diagnostic-specific symposia and five generalized sessions, all of which should provide attendees with a broad overview on issues relevant to planning for DSM-5.

The Mood Disorders Work Group will discuss the diagnoses of major depression, bipolar disorder, and other mood disorders across the lifespan, while an additional session on the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in military populations will present the latest research from evidence-based medicine on PTSD diagnosis and management. The track will also feature a National Institutes of Health—€“supported symposium on patient-reported outcomes, as well as an interactive workshop that will solicit audience feedback on proposed DSM-5 diagnostic criteria. The remaining three sessions will emphasize overarching issues in DSM-5 development, including the proposed reorganization of diagnostic chapters within the manual; a discussion of the implementation and results from DSM-5 field trials; and a research forum describing collaborative efforts between APA and the World Health Organization in International Classification of Diseases revision activities.

"Each year, we look forward to holding the DSM-5 Track because we recognize the importance of sharing with colleagues our proposed plans for DSM," said Darrel Regier, M.D., M.P.H., executive director of the American Psychiatric Institute for Research and Education and vice chair of the DSM-5 Task Force. "That these sessions have attracted an increasingly large audience with each annual meeting tells us that the field feels equally strongly about its value." The schedule of sessions in the DSM-5 Track appears below. All sessions will be held in the Hawaii Convention Center.
