Schizophrenia is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. A robust body of research suggests that shorter duration of untreated psychosis (DUP) and the delivery of team-based multi-element, multi-disciplinary care, called coordinated specialty care (CSC), are each associated with better outcomes. This course will discuss strategies to reduce DUP and will present components of coordinated specialty care including antipsychotic treatment. A final important question is how long CSC programs last and what happens after CSC treatment ends. This program will ensure psychiatric pharmacists understand the current state of literature for FEP population in terms of early detection, engagement, treatment, and unmet needs.
