Negative Symptoms in Schizophrenia: Can We Do Better?

This event is open to all attendees of the AACP Annual Meeting. 


Jointly provided by Postgraduate Institute for Medicine and Global Medical Education.

Join colleagues and earn 1 hour of FREE CME credit at this symposium at the AACP Annual Meeting.  There are many unmet needs in the treatment of schizophrenia, with the alleviation of negative symptoms being critical, as they are the most important predictor of poor long term outcomes in schizophrenia. This symposium will address the prevalence, differential diagnosis, prognostic implications as well as evidence based treatments of negative symptoms of schizophrenia.

Please join us onsite.  No advance registration if offered and there is limited seating - arrive early to secure your spot! 

This activity is supported by an independent educational grant from Allergan.
