Description

Virtual Forum: Treating The Patient With Schizophrenia: Striking A Balance Between Symptom Control & Tolerability

Location: Online Via PsychU.org

Description: Psychosis is ranked as one of the top three most disabling conditions worldwide. Quality of life is commonly impaired in those with schizophrenia, with patients frequently losing the ability to work competitively and isolating themselves from friends and family. During this virtual forum, Georgia Stevens, PhD, Director, P.A.L. Associates, Partners in Aging & Long-Term Caregiving, Washington, DC and Rebecca Roma, MD, Medical Director, Community Treatment Teams, Mercy Behavioral Health, Pittsburgh, PA will discuss the debilitating nature of the disease, the impact of persistent symptoms, how to balance symptom control and tolerability of treatment, and how optimizing treatment has the potential to lead to long-term symptomatic improvement in some patients. The discussion will conclude with time for questions from the audience.

Drs. Stevens and Roma are paid consultants for Otsuka America Pharmaceutical, Inc.
