Dr. Jari Tiihonen, renowned Psychiatrist and Professor from the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden, will begin the day with an analysis of the real world effectiveness of antipsychotic treatments in Schizophrenia culled from his expertise in pharmacoepidemiological methods using national databases. Scientists from The Royal’s Institute of Mental Health Research will then lead a researcher round table, highlighting the challenges and opportunities in Schizophrenia Care.

The afternoon offers participants an opportunity to gain practical Motivational Interviewing skills, identify common barriers faced by families navigating the health care system, and analyze the impact of service structures and mental health law on families and patients. The event will close with a review of the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment standards of psychosis in a clinical setting, highlighting appropriate stage-specific interventions, and suggesting developments for the future service continuum of persons living with Schizophrenia.
