Associate Professor, SIUE School of Pharmacy

Antipsychotics are currently prescribed for a myriad of psychiatric conditions, including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and depression. This workshop will begin with an introduction into the mechanism behind antipsychotic efficacy in treating psychosis. Participants will gain practical knowledge surrounding the neurochemical impact of antipsychotic use on brain development. Differences between 1st generation (typical) and 2nd generation (atypical) antipsychotics will be reviewed, describing clinical information unique to specific medications.

Participants will also have the opportunity to actively discuss clinical scenarios that highlight the selection of antipsychotic therapy, management of antipsychotic tolerability concerns, and the long-term impact of antipsychotic use.

Class size is limited to 45.
