Teaching evidence-based medicine pediatric psychopharmacology: integrating psychopharmacologic treatment into the broad spectrum of care.
Pediatric psychopharmacology is taught at the Duke University Hospital Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Residency Training Program within the context of an evidence-based medicine model. The basic goal of the course is to develop competence in the psychopharmacologic management of psychiatric problems of children and adolescents as part of a biopsychosocial/developmental model of care. Associated with this over-arching goal is the demonstration of specific attitudes, knowledge, and skills. This article discusses the educational model with examples and each of these goals in depth.
