Description

Addressing the mental health of people with cancer benefits from an interdisciplinary approach. Prescribing medications to manage mood, cognition and other sources of distress can be part of that. It is important for all members of the psychosocial oncology team to have a basic understanding of the use of psychotropics in order to ensure a collaborative approach to managing this complex patient population. This webinar will provide an overview of prescribing principles and using frameworks in psychotherapy to facilitate discussions about medications.

Target Audience

  • Social Workers
  • Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists
  • Physicians
  • Nurses
