Virtual Forum: Tools To Assess & Address Medication Adherence In Patients With Serious Mental Illness

Location: Online Via PsychU.org

Description:
Poor medication adherence presents a significant barrier to successful treatment and recovery in patients with serious mental illness and can negatively impact health outcomes and health care costs. While various clinical tools and approaches exist for the assessment and enhancement of medication adherence, many have yet to be widely adopted into psychiatric practice. Please join Hayden Bosworth, PhD, and Michael Measom, MD, as they discuss the importance of medication adherence for patients with serious mental illness, review methods which clinicians can utilize to assess medication adherence in their patients, and consider some tools and approaches clinicians can implement to promote and optimize medication adherence. 

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