AGENDA

Scheduled CE Activities Tuesday, October 2, 2018
  
Depression impacts an estimated 6.7% of the U.S. population, making it the most common mental disorder in the United States, with many cases being undiagnosed and/or untreated. Tragically, a diagnosis of depression increases an individual's risk for suicide by almost twenty-fold. Suicide, however, is a completely preventable phenomenon. Statistically, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians find themselves staring at the perilous front line of this battle on a continuous basis. The very front line of the battle, however, often goes unrecognized and unaddressed.

This session seeks to review the functionality of major classes of antidepressant medications, highlighting the most common prescribing concerns among the various classes. Additionally, the session seeks to evaluate the pharmacist and pharmacy technician's role in recognizing suicidal behaviors and appropriate follow up actions.
