 Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the utility of clozapine in the treatment of serious mental illness. 
  • List barriers to the use of clozapine.
  • Discuss collaborative strategies to increase access and improve utilization of clozapine.
 The American Psychiatric Association guidelines recommend a trial of clozapine for treatment-resistant schizophrenia (TRS) due to its superior efficacy. However, clozapine underutilization remains a significant problem in the US, including in NC, due to barriers related to prescribers and patients as well as administrative/logistical hurdles. Pharmacy collaboration with clozapine prescribers helps improve access and supports the utilization of clozapine.
