Introduction to Psychiatric
4 October 2016 - Coombe Lodge, Blagdon, North
There has been a recent revival in interest in Medical Ethics,
which has particular relevance for Psychiatrists. Mental
Health Care involves complex decision-making, often balancing an
assessment of a person’s capacity to make autonomous decisions and
perceived duties to society at large. It is very difficult to rely
on codified legal instruments for help in specific cases.
This course explores the historical background to Psychiatric
Ethics and provides a basic ethical framework for psychiatrists to
use in everyday clinical practice.
The event will be led by Dr Brian Robinson, Consultant
Psychiatrist and Dr Nicola Taylor, Consultant Psychiatrist.
You can apply by downloading the leaflet and forwarding to the
