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

Patients are often asking pharmacists for harm information about medications and looking for a black and white answer. This is a gray area and the new pregnancy/lactation labeling changes adds to this clinical conundrum. Guidance on how to best present and discuss this information with patients, especially those on psychiatric medications is needed.
