Medication Management of Schizophrenia Spectrum and Other Psychotic Disorders

Medication Management of Schizophrenia Spectrum and Other Psychotic Disorders 

Despite being less common than other types of psychiatric disorders, schizophrenia contributes substantially to global estimates of disability. Almost 3 million Americans live with the illness in a given year (Torrey & Sinclair, 2018). There is reason for optimism for people with schizophrenia spectrum disorders and their families. Research has led to more effective medication approaches and continues to develop newer types of medications; at the same time, researchers are unraveling the complex causes of these disorders. The outlook for people with schizophrenia has improved over the last 25 years. Although there is no cure yet, it is important to remember that 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.
