CPI NewsBrief: Pat Deegan’s “How To Support People on the Journey To Use Meds Optimally” Curriculum Is Now Available

  • 3 February 2021

One year ago, Patricia Deegan, Ph.D. published a thought-provoking column in the journal Psychiatric Services called “The Journey to Use Medication Optimally to Support Recovery”. In this column, Pat identified eight common challenges people face on this journey. You can access this article here.

Since that time, Pat has developed a series of videos and handouts focusing on the common challenges people face when considering psychiatric medicine. She has included these resources in a curriculum that provides guidance to prescribers and other practitioners about how to discuss these important issues with those taking or considering use of psychiatric medicine.  It also contains videos developed specifically for participants in care and a series of handouts that help people to think through the medication-related challenges that they face.
