- Describe the CYP450 enzymes including common substrates, inhibitors, and inducers and expected timeframe of CYP450 enzyme interactions
- Identify key psych/SUD medications involved in CYP450 enzyme and P-glycoprotein interactions
- Apply PK and medication interaction knowledge to a patient scenario
