Description of CME Course

Clinicians may not recognize early TD symptoms, as mild cases may be more easily missed. A substantial proportion of patients with TD do not have a timely diagnosis, meaning that treatment is delayed and the chance for a poor outcome is increased. Because some clinicians underestimate the risk of TD, especially with newer antipsychotics, they do not advise patients and caregivers of the risk of TD or educate them about early signs to watch for and report. Therefore, clinicians need education on the rates of TD with SGAs and FGAs; risk factors for the development of TD; how to use assessment tools that will help them diagnose and monitor TD; and discussing TD risk and signs with patients and caregivers. In addition, physicians need awareness of evidence-based, expert guidance on using approved medications in the treatment of TD, because effective medications for TD are available, and evidence-based treatment recommendations have been published. This activity was designed to meet the needs of participants in CME activities provided by the CME Institute of Physicians Postgraduate Press, Inc., who have requested information on tardive dyskinesia.
