Statement of Need

Schizophrenia is a chronic, debilitating condition that comes with a variety of clinical challenges, including developing patient-centered goals of therapy, navigating social determinants of health (SDOH) that impact access and optimal outcomes, and maintaining long-term, effective therapy. Long-acting injectables (LAIs) are ideal alternatives to oral antipsychotics (OAPs) that are often accompanied by adherence issues. Despite their benefit, LAIs are not routinely presented to patients and caregivers/family as a treatment option, contributing to the underutilization of LAIs in schizophrenia management. To facilitate personalized, optimal, long-term management of schizophrenia, clinicians must identify best practices to incorporate patients and caregivers/family in treatment planning and overcome barriers to the underutilization of LAIs. In addition, to foster long-term management as well as facilitate patient support and augment adherence, strategies to incorporate telemedicine should also be considered.

This CME Outfitters webcast features a collaboration with the American Telemedicine Association (ATA) regarding best practices for incorporating telemedicine in psychiatric management, and will focus on shared decision-making, patient education, and utilizing telemedicine to assist in treatment adherence and supporting patients with schizophrenia.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Engage in shared decision-making (SDM) strategies with patients with schizophrenia and their caregivers/family to develop patient-centered goals of treatment.
  • Educate patients with schizophrenia about the safety and efficacy of LAIs in reducing symptom burden, restoring function, and improving quality of life (QoL).
  • Evaluate the impact of continued telemedicine in assisting treatment adherence and supporting patients with schizophrenia.

Financial Support

Supported by an educational grant from Otsuka America Pharmaceutical, Inc. and Lundbeck.

Target Audience

Physicians, PAs, nurse practitioners, nurses, and pharmacists specializing in psychiatry
