Activity Dates: 02/23/2022 - 02/23/2024
If you are a pharmacist, nurse practitioner, or other health care professional involved in the comprehensive medication management of individuals living with mental health and/or substance use disorders, we invite you to participate in this online course.
In the era of shared decision-making, ensuring patients and families understand the relative risk and statistical concept of number needed to treat for understanding efficacy and side effect liabilities may help empower patients to improve adherence. This program will help ensure psychiatric pharmacists and other health care professionals using antipsychotic treatments understand the benefits and drawbacks to newer antipsychotics and can help best place these “third-generation” antipsychotic treatments in treatment plans that may improve overall patient outcomes.
