Generalized anxiety disorder in adults
Hud-Aleem R, Ladson D

Program Audience Primary care physicians. Educational Needs Addressed Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is a common psychiatric disorder associated with signficant impairment, including loss of productivity, high utilization of health care resources, and reduced quality of life. Patients typically present with vague somatic compliants rather than psychological symptoms, making diagnosis challenging. Optimal recognition and use of effective therapy are critical skills for the physician and should improve the patientís prognosis for recovery and reduce unnecessary suffering. Educational Objectives After participating in this CME activity, primary care physicians should be able to 1. Describe the epidemiology of GAD 2. Know the diagnositic criteria for GAD 3. Describe key components of a historical and physical assessment in patients with anxiety 4. Identify effective treatments for GAD
