Introduction

The Pittsburgh Schizophrenia Conference is an annual meeting at which the advances in schizophrenia research are reviewed by experts in the field. This year’s meeting will cover a range of topics including a review of psychotherapies in schizophrenia, the use of transcranial direct current stimulation for auditory hallucinations, when is it appropriate to deprescribe anticholinergic drugs and the impact of service coordination activities on the care of persons with serious mental illness. Presentation of the 2018 Gerard Hogarty Research Excellence Prize to Dr. John Kane will also take place during the meeting.

Who Should Attend

The conference is designed to disseminate the latest clinical and research findings to a wide audience: psychiatrists and other mental health clinicians, including nurses, social workers, psychologists, service coordinators, researchers, patients and their relatives, mental health policy administrators and others who intend to keep current regarding treatment research in schizophrenia.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of the program, participants should be able to:
1. Recognize the essential elements of coordinated specialty care early in the course of schizophrenia.
2. Review the concept of the duration of untreated psychoses and steps taken to reduce the duration.
3. Review what service coordinators/care managers do in assisting persons with serious mental illness achieve milestones in their recovery process.
4. Evaluate mental health outcomes achieved by persons with mental illness who engage in service coordination/case management services.
5. Review the evidence for the benefits of various psychotherapies in the treatment of schizophrenia.
6. Evaluate the data for using transcranial direct current stimulation (t-DCS) in the treatment of auditory hallucinations in schizophrenia. 
7. Recognize the use of anti-cholinergic agents in the treatment of side-effects of anti-psychotic drugs and consider when it is appropriate to taper and stop these medications. 
8. Recognize how the creative arts and music play an important role in achieving recovery milestones in serious mental illness.

Gerard E. Hogarty Excellence in Schizophrenia Research Memorial Lecture:

“Lessons Learned From RAISE-ETP:
Where Do We Go from Here?”

The early identification and management of first episode psychosis remains an enormous challenge, yet its success can play a pivotal role in subsequent outcome. The NIMH-funded RAISE-ETP program demonstrated a number of advantages for coordinated specialty care (CSC) in comparison to usual community care. Specifically, participants receiving coordinated specialty care did better on quality of life, symptoms, retention in treatment and return to work or school. At the same time, the median duration of untreated psychosis (DUP) in this sample from 21 different states across the U.S. was 74 weeks, with 68% of participants having a DUP of greater than six months. Longer DUP was associated with less benefit from CSC.

 This presentation will review some of the factors contributing to DUP and some approaches to potentially reducing it-involving social media and the Internet. In addition, despite CSC, 34% of these first episode patients were hospitalized within the next two years in comparison to 37% in the control condition. Not surprisingly, attitudes towards medication-taking was one of the predictors of hospitalization. This presentation will also discuss the adherence challenge and recent efforts to increase the utilization of long-acting formulations of antipsychotic medications. Much of this work links directly back to the enormous contributions of Gerard Hogarty.

 

By the completion of this session, participants should be able to:


1. Recognize the basics of coordinated specialty care in early phase schizophrenia.

2. Discuss recent findings from controlled trials of coordinated specialty care.

3. Explain the impact of the duration of untreated psychosis and describe different steps being taken to reduce it.
