202-22: KEYNOTE: The Journey to Use Meds Optimally To Support Recovery

Deegan PhD will draw on her professional, and personal experience of recovery after a diagnosis of schizophrenia, to illustrate how nurses can play a key role in helping to assess and support people through the challenges of using psych meds.
