Target Audience

This course is designed for pharmacists, nurse practitioners or other health care professionals involved in the comprehensive medication management of psychiatric and/or neurological patients.

Session Summary

Although CPNP members can offer services that address some of the direst challenges in healthcare today, most health system and policy decision makers are not familiar with the role of pharmacists in advanced patient care roles. This presentation will share proven tools, methods, and resources for advancing the implementation and spread of psychiatric pharmacy services through administrators, legislators, and government agencies. Participants will leave with the ability to create a plan for how they can advocate for themselves and CPNP towards reaching their professional goals.
