Target Audience

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

Session Summary

Innovative Mobile health (mHealth) approaches are revolutionizing the way we study, assess, and treat mental illness. mHealth may aid in closing access gaps to services, reducing hospitalizations, improving consistency and accuracy of care, and reducing healthcare expenditures. However, the lack of regulations into whom may develop an mHealth app and paucity of clinical evidence means some caution should be exercised. Clinicians need guidance on the proposed advantages and disadvantages of these new technologies and how mHealth integration can be effectively incorporated into practice.
