On-Demand Webcast
Program Description

This activity was developed for psychiatrists, primary care physicians, psychologists, nurse practitioners, physician assistances, psychiatric nurses, and other healthcare professionals who seek to improve the care of patients with tardive dyskinesia.

Research into TD pathophysiology and treatment targets has led to the advancement of vesicular monoamine transporter 2 (VMAT2) inhibitors, with 2 agents recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Key differences in the pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic properties of these newer agents will be examined, as well as clinical outcome data from the ARM-TD, AIM- TD, KINECT-3, the ongoing KINECT-4, and other clinical trials.
