Expand Access to LAIs, Expand Care

Pharmacists can play an instrumental role in the administration of psychotropic long-acting injectable (LAI) medications (antipsychotics, naltrexone, buprenorphine) but may lack the training needed to perform this important service. This multi-faceted, on demand educational activity aims to reduce barriers and increase patient access to LAIs through a universal training program that includes, but is not limited to, appropriate patient selection, LAI preparation and administration techniques, and insights into methods to engage a patient population with serious mental illness.

Disclosure on State Training Requirements

The ability of a pharmacist to administer injectable medications is based on individual state regulations. Each state has its own unique LAI training requirements. Please review the regulations for the state you practice in to determine whether the program meets your needs and whether additional training beyond this program is required prior to administering LAI medications to patients.
