In a couple of days we’ll attend another Georgia-Alabama TMS Providers Meeting.
We anticipate this second meeting to be every bit as good as the meeting we attended a few months ago.
Learning is fun! Particularly learning about something as fascinating as magnetic brain stimulation. We get excited about any opportunity to learn more about TMS.
It’s a chance to network with other people who are interested in seeing more of this…
The other psychiatrists, and nurses, and TMS Co-ordinators attending the meeting will help us improve our TMS practice. We already know they’re a smart bunch. We have a list of questions to ask.
We hope to contribute to the group effort to stamp out depression, and will certainly share the good news of how well TMS is working for us in our own backyard. No one will be surprised. They all know how well this therapy is at helping depression’s victims.
We’re grateful for another opportunity to learn more about TMS. Actually, we learn more about TMS every day, with every patient we treat, but a meeting of this sort lets us learn from the experiences of other psychiatrists, and their patients, so that we have an even better shot at stamping out depression in Augusta, Georgia.
The Georgia-Alabama TMS Providers meeting is over, and everyone has gone home. We’re back in Augusta, having learned more about how to help victims of depression, and other psychiatric brain diseases.
It was a very useful meeting for us. It’s a treat to compare notes about brain stimulation therapy, and to learn more about treating debilitating, heartbreaking illnesses such as depression.
It’s so cool to be able to participate in a group where everyone has a shared enthusiasm as we continue to see how remarkable magnetic stimulation treatment is in treating real life people, even people who’ve been impossible to help with medications, talk therapy, and ECT.
We enjoyed the opportunity to join Dr. Ben Eubanks, and Nurse Alicia Davenport in sharing with the group some of what we learned at MUSC from Dr. Mark George and his staff while we were in Charleston for advanced TMS training.
We appreciate so much the opportunity to discuss with experienced clinicians the careful, safe, and well reasoned approach to off label uses of TMS.
Here are links to material we talked about at the meeting…
- Here’s the short cut computer program to find F3. We use the web based version of this Beam F3 Locator.
- This is an article describing in detail the entire 10-20 Positioning System.
- This article describes how and why TMS changes the life of a psychiatrist.
- This article on Beam F3 might be interesting to anyone using the Beam F3 Locator.
- We use these caps, and apologize for forgetting to bring one to demonstrate exactly how.
- We use these BraiNet Placement Caps (small, medium, and large) as backup confirmation tools. As we explained, we begin with the Beam F3 Locator system, and have two backup methods. All three methods will correspond sometimes, but Beam F3 is the most accurate we believe.
Thanks so much to Dr. Barry Jones, and his wife, and his staff, for hosting the meeting, and for so generously sharing knowledge, expertise, and resources.
