“Other pharma-oriented conferences I have attended focused on biomedical processes and products, while CPI focuses on the experience of human problems and the science behind ways to help. APNA CPI elevates my practice to serve my patients better.” – Anthony Peckham, PMHNP-BC

This year’s cutting-edge program features in-depth presentations from interdisciplinary experts on pharmacologic topics for psychiatric-mental health nurses, including:

  • Enhancing psychopharmacology through psychotherapy
  • Prescribing and de-prescribing benzodiazepines
  • Nutritional psychiatry
  • Lithium and its renal effects
  • Treatment options for when bipolarity complicates diagnosis and treatment of depression
  • Best practices in smoking cessation
  • ECT versus Ketamine for treatment resistant depression and anxiety
  • Precision health care
  • Treatment considerations for children with suicidal ideation
  • Pharmacology and weight management
  • Polypharmacy in integrated primary care settings

Master your psychopharmacologic nursing practice across the lifespan.

The APNA Clinical Psychopharmacology Institute (CPI) delivers psychopharmacology updates to professionals looking to provide the best possible care to their patients. CPI prioritizes the integration of psychopharmacology and neuroscience into clinical practice. It offers the scientific base for treatment decisions and addresses the context of care within the nurse/consumer/family relationship.

The APNA Clinical Psychopharmacology Institute is appropriate for RN-PMH and advanced practice psychiatric nurses (PMH-NP & PMH-CNS) – especially those who administer and/or prescribe medications. Because CPI is planned for nurses, by nurses, the program provides a depth and breadth of scientific information tailored to the challenges inherent in psychiatric-mental health nursing practice. All other health care providers interested in psychopharmacology are welcome for advanced study, especially fellow nurses, primary care physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, and pharmacists.

The content of this CNE activity pertains to pharmacology. Because states’ requirements may vary, contact your Board of Nursing for more information.

The American Psychiatric Nurses Association is accredited as a provider of nursing continuing professional development by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
