Event description

Description

This training is open only to Mental Health & Addiction Staff within Health PEI unless otherwise stated.

A brief introduction to psychopharmacology looking at individual drugs and drug classes for different mental illnesses, with clinical consideration for psychotherapeutic effect, treatment and prevention of substance use disorders. The emphasis is on practical application: what should I know about the medicines (their limitations and side effects) my clients are taking? How do I educate clients about their medications? What positive effects and side effects might I see in my patients taking medication? How can I better collaborate with medical practitioners and other mental health professionals?

**Training is cancelled if Provincial Government Offices are closed or delayed.**
