Does this sound familiar? Your clients are taking multiple psychotropic medications prescribed by different healthcare professionals, not to mention their use of over-the-counter medications and herbal supplements. You discover that they have no idea who wrote which prescription or why they are even taking the medication. You realize that despite the confusion, you still have a responsibility to know your client’s symptoms, reactions to medications, and to coordinate their care. It’s more critical than ever for healthcare and mental health professionals to understand how psychotropic medications work, where in the body they work, and why they do (or don’t) improve your client’s therapeutic outcomes.
Are you confident in your role as both the client advocate and protector to effectively address medication-assisted treatments in your overall care plan?
This recording contains content from two-action-packed days learning from expert Sharon M. Freeman Clevenger, MSN, MA, PMHCNS-BC.

You’ll finish with the knowledge you need to answer clients’ questions, manage side effects, understand medication reactions and improve your treatment outcomes.
