Target Audience:  This activity has been developed for prescribers specializing in psychiatry. There are no prerequisites. Health care providers in all specialties who are interested in psychopharmacology, especially primary care physicians, nurses, psychologists, and pharmacists, are welcome for advanced study.

Overview:  Schizophrenia encompasses positive, negative, cognitive, and affective symptom domains and can have a very different presentation for each individual patient. Additionally, patients with schizophrenia often suffer from various comorbid conditions. This booklet is a series of five case studies in psychosis, all adapted from real practice, and provides a glimpse into what cases look like after the first consultation, and over time, living through the treatments that work, the treatments that do not work, the mistakes, and the lessons to be learned.

Learning Objectives: After completing this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Integrate novel treatment approaches into clinical practice according to best practice guidelines
  • Implement evidence-based treatment strategies that are aligned with recovery goals set by  the patient
  • Include strategies for monitoring and addressing adherence as part of the treatment plan for  all patients
