Performance Improvement CME: Managing Schizophrenia

John M. Kane, MD, and Christoph U. Correll, MD

Published: October 18, 2011

Article Abstract

Schizophrenia is a highly disabling disorder characterized by positive and negative symptoms and poor functioning in almost every area of life. Multiple antipsychotics have demonstrated varying levels of efficacy in reducing symptoms in schizophrenia, but adverse effects are common, adherence to medication is low, and relapse rates are high. Psychosocial interventions used in conjunction with antipsychotic pharmacotherapy may help improve treatment outcomes. This Performance Improvement CME activity focuses on individualizing treatment for schizophrenia, assessing treatment adherence, minimizing medication-induced adverse events, and preventing relapse, for children, adolescents, and adults with schizophrenia.
