PsychEd Episode 8: Diagnosing and Treating Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder with Dr. Nik Grujich


Welcome to PsychEd, the psychiatry podcast for medical learners, by medical learners. This episode covers the diagnosis and treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) with Dr. Nik Grujich, a staff psychiatrist at Sunnybrook Hospital, associate of the Frederick W. Thompson Anxiety Disorders Centre and award-winning educator at the University of Toronto.

In this episode, Jordan Bawks (PGY2 resident) and Aarti Rana (PGY1 resident) sit down with Dr. Grujich to talk about OCD. Together, they discuss the phenomenology of OCD (with a focus on differentiating it from Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder, OCPD), the epidemiology and natural course of the disorder, the DSM-5 diagnostic criteria, interview techniques to elicit and differentiate OCD from other psychiatric disorders and the pharmacological and psychological treatments for the disorder.

By the end of this episode, the listener will be able to…

  1. Recognize the clinical features of OCD using DSM-5 criteria
  2. Appreciate the differential diagnosis and how to use specific interviewing questions and the mental status to aid clinical judgment
  3. Describe the evidence-based pharmacological and psychological treatments for OCD and their relative efficacy
