Let’s Talk About Antipsychotics, Psychotropics and Dementia
Thursday, March 9 from 2:00-3:00pm EST

In this webinar, Dr. Cameron Camp and Kim McRae will delve into the current state of the use and misuse of antipsychotics and psychotropics. We will explore and discuss reasons WHY these drugs are being misused, including how we think and feel about “challenging behaviors.” Proactive ideas and promising/best practices will be provided that can help prevent misuse of these drugs and promotion of non-pharmacological approaches.
