This webinar will provide an overview of techniques and skills that can be used when providing care to individuals with SMI involving treatment options that may be less familiar to the patient and family in order to facilitate engagement in treatment. The type of treatment options covered will include TMS, ECT, LAIs and Clozapine. While known to be effective in the treatment of SMI, these treatments can raise concerns for the patient and the family when they are initially introduced as options for the treatment plan. This webinar will highlight the importance of speaking openly and honestly with both the patient and the person they consider important in supporting their recovery to address those concerns in order to make the best treatment decisions.
Presenter: Ken Duckworth, MD, National Alliance on Mental Illness
