This FREE presentation which is part of the 2020 Virtual Mental Health Care Conference was recorded live on Tuesday, July 21 from 9:30 am - 10:30 am. Sponsored by Alkermes. Presented by: Andrew Angelino, MD
Schizophrenia is overrepresented in the criminal justice system, particularly in correctional facilities, with prevalence estimated at 2% to 6.5% in state prison inmates vs. 1.1% in the U.S. adult population. Atypical long-acting injectable therapies should be considered as a treatment option for individuals with schizophrenia during incarceration and as they transition to community care settings. This program will review treatment options, especially use of targeted antipsychotic therapy, to reduce exacerbation of illness and recidivism.
Outline current treatment strategies for patients with schizophrenia
Discuss the future directions in schizophrenia treatment and the symptoms targeted
Explore the impact of targeted pharmacotherapy on recidivism and integration into community treatment
