Joint Sponsorship Statement

Jointly sponsored by Vanderbilt University School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry and INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS ON SCHIZOPHRENIA RESEARCH

Learning Objectives

After participating in this CME activity, participants should be able to:

  • review the growing evidence that certain treatment targets are best addressed by alternative pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic approaches, including anti-inflammatory adjunctive therapies, med reduction approaches, and computer based cognitive rehabilitation approaches as first-line therapy for cognitive symptoms of schizophrenia.
  • review optimal pharmacologic approaches to treatment-resistant schizophrenia and treatment nonadherence, using both didactic and case-based learning modules to reinforce practice-based learning
  • review nonpharmacologic approaches to improve adherence assessment and improve medication adherence, as well as psychotherapeutic approaches to reducing distress and disability from treatment-resistant positive symptoms

Target Audience

This symposium will draw on the breadth and international scope of the ICOSR meeting to offer clinical practitioners breadth of faculty that would not usually be available at a single location.
