Description

Clients taking psychotropic medications need an advocate who can help them make sense of the whirlwind of information regarding what drugs are good for what conditions, potentially dangerous side effects and adverse reactions, and possible alternative treatments.

They need someone who can not only effectively communicate vital information to them but can also collaborate with prescribers to determine the best course of action to take.

Simply put, these clients need you, and so you need this current and comprehensive training in psychopharmacology.

As a licensed psychiatric nurse practitioner with full independent prescriptive practice, Susan Marie, PHD, PMHNP, CARN-NP has the expertise necessary to guide you through the newest advances in psychopharmacology and contemporary trends in medication management.

You will get the advantage of an intimate, in-depth look at the key issues from a vantage point that understands the experiences of clients, mental health professionals, and prescribers.

Susan’s engaging presentation includes many take home “pearls” you can use to teach your clients about their medications and how to protect them from concerning, dangerous or adverse effects.

You will find this recording to have the most up-to-date medication information and how to use it most effectively with your clients.
