The art and science of antipsychotic prescribing – Lecture CPD 1 point

Listen to the episode

Description

In this Healthed lecture, Dr Prachi Brahmbhatt, will explain that the rates of remission and recovery after a single schizophrenic episode are good (~80%), but the rates decline with each subsequent episode. As such, maintaining adherence and optimizing symptom control improves physical health outcomes and this is where GPs have a very important role.

Dr Brahmbhatt will provide a very useful, practical guide to choosing, initiating, titrating, balancing effectiveness against tolerability, and switching and monitoring for adverse effects.
