PsychNP Cast

Ed Stern

Welcome to the “Psych NP cast: A podcast made specifically for Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioners (PMHNP) and their peers. This is a show produced by PMHNPs for PMHNPs. Our show will cover the vast conversation of psychiatric care as nurse practitioners (PMHNPs). We will talk about practice operations, evidence-based clinical care, modern patient needs, cultural needs, and more. Here we define what it truly means to be a PMHNP; sharing our experiences with others, and helping foster a community within psychiatric patient care.

All Episodes

Dre Ceja (They/Them) joins us to talk about easy things we can do to provide affirming care for our transgender and non-binary patients. We will discuss simple changes you and staff can make when working with patient's pronouns, avoiding gender errors, understanding simple terms, and remembering that it doesn't always have to be about gender care. Reaching out to our Guest Dre Ceja (dceja@centralpalgbtcenter.org): https://centralpalgbtcenter.org/ (LGBT Center of Central PA) - Director of Training & Education https://www.transgendertraininginstitute.com/ (Transgender Training Institute) Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dreconchile/ (https://www.instagram.com/dreconchile/)

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. References: Greene, M., Yan, T., Chang, E., Hartry, A., Touya, M., & Broder, M. S. (2018).
