Statement of Need

Schizophrenia is a clinically complex, multi-system disorder that is associated with an increased incidence of medical comorbidities, complicating management.

Comprehensive management of medical comorbidities is essential to improve whole patient care and optimize clinical outcomes.

In the first installment of this CME Outfitters Snack series on schizophrenia, faculty experts will provide clinicians with tools to identify and mitigate the impact of medical comorbidities on morbidity and mortality risks.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Employ best practices for the management of patients with schizophrenia at high risk for adverse events.

Financial Support

Supported by an educational grant from Alkermes

Target Audience

Psychiatrists, psychiatric residents, psychiatric nurses, primary care physicians, PAs, nurse practitioners, and pharmacists
