Statement of Need

Schizophrenia is a clinically complex, multi-system disorder that is associated with an increased incidence of medical comorbidities, complicating management. Overlooked or undermanaged medical comorbidities increase morbidity and all-cause mortality risks. Comprehensive management of medical comorbidities is essential to improve whole patient care and optimize clinical outcomes.

In this live Q & A based on a CME Outfitters Snack series on schizophrenia, faculty experts will discuss tools to identify and mitigate the impact of medical comorbidities on morbidity and mortality risks and answer learner questions on treating schizophrenia as a multisystem disease.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CME/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
