Most psychiatrists agree that the ideal treatment for bipolar patients includes a healthy mix of medication and therapy. But is that what usually happens? Jennifer Vande Voort, M.D., at Mayo Clinic, posed that question.
While Dr. Vande Voort found most Mayo Clinic bipolar patients are receiving quality care, the system isn't perfect. She hopes the information and data she is gathering about Mayo Clinic care will help physicians here and at other medical institutions offer better treatment plans.
Dr. Vande Voort shared these findings at the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry conference in Toronto.
