Statement of Need

As a chronic, debilitating disorder, schizophrenia necessitates early detection and optimal management, particularly within the context of impeding factors such as medical comorbidities, lack of confidence in the use of long-acting injectables (LAIs), and racial disparities.

In this Q&A session, Dr. Correll will address queries on tools to develop effective, evidence-based treatment strategies for schizophrenia within the context of patient preferences and goals. These strategies include insight and ideal practices to address racial disparities and optimal selection and use of LAIs to enable patients to maintain and sustain a successful treatment plan, promoting remission and recovery of function.

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.
  • Formulate practice strategies for the use of LAIs in patients with schizophrenia while considering treatment initiation, dose, and dosing schedules.
  • Implement strategies to address racial disparities in the diagnosis and management of schizophrenia by removing implicit bias, establishing trust, providing education, and engaging in shared decision-making.
