Autumn Biannual Meeting 2014

Friday 14 November - Future Inn, Bond Street South, Bristol, BS1 3EN
'Innovation for Psychiatrists'

Dr Richard Laugharne, in conjunction with Dr Rohit Shankar, has once again put together an excellent agenda for the meeting, with speakers to include:

  • Professor George Tadros
  • Dr Andrea Malizia
  • Dr Guy Undrill
  • Dr Rupert Noad
  • Andrew Stamp

As Richard mentioned in our Autumn 2013 eNewsletter, the aim is to create a space, an opportunity for contributors to be supported and enthused to develop innovative ideas of all kind.  Sometimes psychiatrists feel inhibited by bureaucracy and lack the confidence to put forward ideas for fears that they won't be well received or might not work but it is important for us to remain active in innovation and to put ideas forward in an encouraging environment that builds you up rather than knocks you down.  Innovator and developer of the RAID model, Professor George Tadros, has been approached to speak.  A man with substantial experience in implementing innovation.  In addition, the aim is to have workshops that will encourage innovation locally.  We will seek volunteers to present at an innovation clinic for advice, with the most interesting idea receiving a prize of £500 (and a certificate of course!)  Most of all we hope it will be something a bit different and fun!
