Psychiatry Perspectives On Patient Care In A Post-Pandemic World (Part 2 Of 2-Part Series)

The novel coronavirus pandemic has had a substantial impact on mental health, as well as on its treatment. In the second part of a two-part webinar series on psychiatry perspectives in a post-pandemic world, Richard Weisler, MD, and Allan Chrisman, MD, build upon the dialogue of the pandemic’s impact on health care providers and first responders discussed in “Psychiatry Perspectives On COVID-19: Impact On Health Care Providers & First Responders And A Path Forward (Series 1 of 2)” and shift the focus to discuss the ways in which COVID-19 has affected individuals’ mental health and well-being. They also discuss new innovations and technological approaches to psychiatric patient care and identify effective treatment methods.
