Target Audience

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

Many patients experience cognitive decline after stroke, and over one-third of stroke survivors will develop depression. Cognitive impairment and depression after stroke each increase the risk of disability, worsen stroke survivors' quality of life, and negatively impact medication adherence. The clinical pharmacist can play a vital role in evaluating and treating the growing population of stroke survivors many of whom have cognitive impairment and/or depression. This session will teach concepts to improve clinical pharmacists' care of stroke survivors with cognitive impairment and/or depression.
