November 11, 2022

Lorenzo Norris, MD, considers the challenges in treating obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) through recalling an experience from early in his career where he first learned the difficulties in connecting the dots from pharmacotherapy to psychotherapy.

He also stresses the necessities of a team-based approach and realistic goal-setting. These elements help build a general framework that is distinguished by sensitive patient engagement, coordination with colleagues, and the ability to follow the latest evidence-based approach.
