Institute 8 (ticket)
Fundamentals of Pediatric Psychopharmacology

This Institute provides practical information to primary care clinicians on the use of psychotropic medications in their practices, filling the knowledge gap in training and experience on the use of psychotropics in children and adolescents. Participants gain knowledge of the main categories of psychopharmacologic agents used in children and adolescents and master the initiation and titration of these agents in the pediatric populations seen when in primary care.
