This presentation was originally reviewed on May 24, 2022, and broadcast live online on May 20, 2022, from 1:00 PM - 4:15 PM ET. 

The views and opinions expressed by this presenter in this lecture are their own, and do not represent the views of Sheppard Pratt.

The current COVID-19 pandemic has been transformative for medicine and society. This is also reflected in the unprecedented volume of COVID-relevant papers on every subject of life sciences and humanities. A multitude of neurological and psychiatric problems and illnesses have been associated, in one way or another, with COVID-19. Much research is still in the early phase, but some patterns being to emerge. Because of the spread of infection and the commonality of neuropsychiatric complaints, the neurological and psychiatric practitioner will inevitably deal with problems or questions linking the virus with behavioral, cognitive, and mental complaints. This CME activity will provide a general framework within which such problems can be understood and managed, while awaiting more definitive information from ongoing research.

Target Audience

This activity is intended for physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, counselors, and other mental health professionals.

  1. Define potential neurological causes of mental, behavioral, and cognitive impairments related to COVID-19

About The Speaker

Dr. Vassilis E. Koliatsos is the senior neuropsychiatrist for Research and Education and the Stulman Scholar in Clinical Neuropsychiatry at Sheppard Pratt. Dr. Koliatsos, who is also professor in Psychiatry, Neurology, and Neuropathology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, founded the Neuropsychiatry Program at Sheppard Pratt in 1997 to establish a coordinated approach to care for a variety of complex patients with severe cognitive, emotional, and behavioral problems across life cycle, from development to advanced age. With generous funding from the Stulman foundation, the Women’s Hospital Foundation, and other grateful patient families, the Neuropsychiatry Program was designed to help clarify the causes and mechanisms of symptoms and provides both consultative services and direct patient care. Dr. Koliatsos sees patients in the general neuropsychiatry teaching clinic focusing on general neuropsychiatry, TBI, neurodegenerative dementias, and complex psychopharmacological cases.
