Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Family Practice Volume 62, Issue 1: Posttraumatic Stress Disorder/Atypical Antipsychotic Drugs.
The goals of this program are to improve management of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and promote safe use and monitoring of atypical antipsychotic drugs. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Review changes in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition, about symptom criteria for PTSD.
2. Counsel patients about treatment options for PTSD.
3. Describe the mechanisms of action and side effects of atypical antipsychotic drugs.
4. Explain causes and provide treatment of metabolic complications associated with atypical antipsychotics.
5. Select safe and effective atypical antipsychotic drugs for geriatric patients.
The original programs were presented by John R. Freedy, MD, PhD, Associate Professor of Family Medicine, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, and Andrea R. Gauld, PharmD, Assistant Professor, Department of Clinical and Administrative Sciences, Notre Dame of Maryland University School of Pharmacy, Baltimore.
