GP Update: First Episode Psychosis
Open to ALL DOCTORS in Malaysia || 4 CPD/CME Points will be awarded.
Early or first-episode psychosis (FEP) refers to when a person first shows signs of beginning to lose contact with reality. Families are often the first to see early signs of psychosis and the first to address the issue of seeking treatment. However, a person’s willingness to accept help is often complicated by delusions, fears, stigma and feeling unsettled. Acting quickly to connect a person with the right treatment during early psychosis or FEP can be life-changing and may radically alter that person’s future.
The pathway to care commonly involves a progression from non-psychiatric services or even non-medical services to psychiatric services, with GPs/MOs having a potentially important role in the early recognition and referral of individuals with early psychosis.
