Optimizing First Episode Schizophrenia Medication Treatment By Community Clinicians: The RAISE-ETP Model

September 16, 2015

5:30pm-8:00pm

Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center

About this Conference: This event will review the treatment model developed for the national RAISE-ETP study, an overview of NAVIGATE treatment principles, the NAVIGATE medication sequences, ETP experience integrating medication and psychosocial interventions and data showing better outcomes with NAVIGATE treatment.  Since the experience of most community care clinicians treating psychotic patients is heavily weighted towards the treatment of multi-episode patients, it is important to review periodically how to recognize the early signs that a young person is developing symptoms of psychosis and the specialized knowledge about treatment of patients with first episode psychosis.  The recommended medication treatment for first episode schizophrenia differs from that for multi-episode schizophrenia.
