Statement of Need and Purpose

Major depressive disorder (MDD) is not only a leading cause of disability itself, but also increases patients’ risks for comorbid medical conditions. Although effective depression treatments exist, up to 30% of patients do not respond to standard treatments. The TMS system is an FDA-approved treatment for use in adults with treatment-resistant MDD. While TMS is increasingly available, clinicians are unsure about how to use this therapy; thus, it goes underused. Health care providers require education about TMS therapy, how to identify patients who could benefit from it, and how to manage patients during and after an acute treatment course. This activity was designed to meet the needs of participants in CME activities provided by the CME Institute of Physicians Postgraduate Press, Inc., who have requested information on TMS.
