This activity offers CE credits for:
1. Physicians (CME)
To understand the wide range of neuropsychological processes associated with impulsivity and the different impulsive behaviors that can present with the disorder.
At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:
• Define impulsivity
• Discuss the many manifestations of impulsive behaviors
• Differentiate between the available classes of agents and recognize how effective they are for specific impulsive behaviors
This continuing medical education activity is intended for psychiatrists, psychologists, primary care physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and other health care professionals who seek to improve their care for patients with mental health disorders.
