Medication Management: Schizophrenia Spectrum and Other Psychotic Disorders

Green Clock Hours: 1.00 - 1.50

Despite being less prevalent than mood disorders, schizophrenia contributes substantially to global estimates of disability. Almost 3 million Americans live with the illness in a given year. Nevertheless, there is hope for people with schizophrenia spectrum disorders (i.e., schizophrenia, schizophreniform disorder, brief psychotic disorder, and related conditions) and their families. Research has led to more effective treatments and continues to develop newer types of medications; at the same time, researchers are unraveling the complex causes of these disorders. It is important to remember that even though there is not yet a cure, many people can manage the illness to lead independent, satisfying lives. The main goal of this course is to provide you with the information and current research you need to better understand how to collaborate in the treatment of schizophrenia spectrum disorders.
