Ask the Doctor: Bipolar Disorder
Dr. Andrew Nierenberg provides information about maintaining wellness while living with bipolar disorder and his work with the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). Dr. Nierenberg stresses that wellness is not defined simply as an absence of illness, but rather as a combination of many factors. Dr. Nierenberg described PCORI as a “network of networks,” connecting families, patients, researchers, insurance companies and clinicians in an effort to give patients the information they need to make decisions about their desired health outcomes.
