Episode 2110: Long Acting Injectables with Rochelle Perry

Meet Rochelle Perry PMHNP (rdperry05241@gmail.com) to learn about how she's worked with her son on his use of Long-Acting Injectables (LAIs) and how she uses them in her outpatient settings. There is a lot of strong clinical evidence that this patient care pathway helps and it's very easy, with low barriers to us providing it right in our office. Learn more about that... listen and enjoy.
