|(1 cr.) The perspective of psychiatric neuroscience
addresses the actions and interactions of drugs
on the brain, the impact in the central nervous
system, and interprets the behavioral
consequences of psychiatric medications. Common
psychiatric medications seen with adults and
geriatric patients in primary care settings are
considered. A holistic approach to adult and
geriatric patients is emphasized.
Evidenced-based guidelines and research are
integrated to develop nursing strategies for best
practices in psychopharmacology.
