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

Session Summary

Schizophrenia that is resistant to treatment with antipsychotics occurs in up to 40% of patients. Patients with treatment-resistant schizophrenia (TRS) may have increased functional impairment due to more prevalent negative symptoms, disorganization, and depression than patients with non-TRS. A variety of strategies, both pharmacological and non-pharmacologic, have been examined in patients with TRS. Participants will learn application of evidence-based strategies to address TRS.
