Description

Virtual Forum: Early Intervention In Schizophrenia: Targeting Metabolic Dysfunction

Location: Online Via PsychU.org

Description:
Increasingly, schizophrenia is considered a medical psychiatric disease. There is evidence that metabolic changes occur within the first episode of psychosis, and within the first few weeks of initiating antipsychotic treatment. Presently, there are treatment options available that can address these dangers, and they need to be implemented as early as possible in the course of schizophrenia. Early Intervention (EI) programs are aimed at early detection of the disease, prevention of conversion to manifested psychosis, and phase-specific treatment to reduce the development of chronic disabilities. Please join Christoph Correll, MD, and John Newcomer, MD, as they revisit the various strategies for EI in psychotic syndromes while focusing on strategies to intervene early in the process to improve metabolic risk.

Speakers are paid consultants for Otsuka Pharmaceutical Development & Commercialization, Inc.
