Banner with Title

We are very excited to announce our Psychotropic Stewardship Program which is a series of 7-10 minute video snippets, presented by long-term care expert Amy Siple, APRN, FPN, GS-C, on essential topics related to antipsychotic and psychotropic medication that can be used for one-on-one and group education, refreshers, and discussion.

Based upon viewing the videos, peer discussion and facilitation by Amy Siple on this crucial topic we hope to minimize the utilization of antipsychotic and psychotropic medication use to improve the quality of life for the people we serve.
