When it comes to the topic of adherence to antipsychotic medication for the treatment of schizophrenia, the vast majority of studies focus on nonadherence and how to “correct” nonadherence. This begs the question—why would patients want to take antipsychotic medication anyway? This session will flip the topic around and assume that stopping medication is “normal” given the diagnosis of schizophrenia and that it is our job as clinicians to figure out a patient-centered strategy to help our patients understand in a real way that antipsychotic medication might be worth all of the challenges and difficulties.
