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

Key drug-drug interactions involving psychotropic medications are important to identify in practice. However, it is critical for healthcare providers to be able to recognize which drug-drug interactions are more likely to result in clinically significant events and to understand which individual patient characteristics may increase risk for experiencing certain adverse effects. This session will allow participants to identify both psychotropic medications more commonly implicated in drug-drug interactions as well as the clinical significance of these interactions.
