DSM-5-TR Updates: What Providers Need to Know 

CID: 54307

After nine years of using the Diagnostical and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5), changes are on the horizon for behavioral health practitioners with the release of the Diagnostical and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition, Text Revision (DSM-5-TR). In March of 2022, the DSM-5-TR was released with a new disorder, changes, and clarifications for 70 disorders, and billing updates that include new ICD-10-CM codes. Important in this revision is how culture, racism, and discrimination are viewed from the diagnostic lens. Revisions from the DSM-5 to the DSM-5-TR will be reviewed in this webinar with a focus on understanding how the changes will impact diagnosing, billing practices, strategies to address cultural changes, and application to real-world cases.                                                            

This accredited continuing education activity is intended for behavioral health providers to include psychiatrists, psychologists, advanced practice nurses, nurses, licensed mental health therapists, social workers, and other interested healthcare professionals.
