Psychopharmacology Basics for Nonmedical Providers



This workshop will provide Mental Health providers that are not medical in training with a basic understanding of the medications that are commonly prescribed to patients in both an inpatient and outpatient setting. Content will cover common indications, common dosages, side effects that may be seen, and some of the interactions that may occur and should be monitored for. This is not intended to be an exhaustive understanding of medications, and their functions, rather it will be an overview for nonmedical clinicians. The goal is to help the nonmedical provider to better understand the medication aspects of care for their patients.

Learning objectives:

1) After this lecture, attendees will have a basic knowledge of common psychiatric medications, dosages, and potential problems
2)  Attendees will better understand the role that medication plays in the care of their patients.
