The integrated primary care team is increasingly called upon to manage patients with a wide spectrum of psychiatric presentations often with co-occurring complex social needs. Psychopharmacology Review for Integrated Primary Care will provide an overview of drug classes, approach to common clinical presentations, and management of adverse effects. Psychopharmacology challenges related to social determinants of health, medication options for substance use disorders, and the role of non-prescriber integrated team members will be discussed. Case examples, clinical pearls and links to clinical drug resources will facilitate learning. Our target audience will be prescribers wishing to enhance their knowledge and non-prescribers wishing to add to their knowledge base. All disciplines are welcome.
