This CME activity provides a practical approach to the identification and screening of suspected psychosis. Narrative storytelling and didactic pieces provide a unique insight into the mind of a patient experiencing the early signs and symptoms of psychosis. Case scenarios will be used to demonstrate skills in talking to young people, and their families, about psychosis. Early warning signs will be reviewed along with high-yield screening questions to support understanding, identifying and treating psychosis in adolescents and young adults.
This course is designed for family practice, primary care, pediatrics and psychiatry physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and school social workers.
