Perinatal PDP meeting minutes template

Dr Tara Lawn, Consultant in Perinatal Psychiatry:

This is the template that is used for our monthly perinatal CPD meetings.

We have 6 members all of whom are perinatal consultant psychiatrists. Having a rolling agenda works well and any extra agenda items are added as needed. This format allows the sharing and discussion of new scientific research within both perinatal psychiatry and general psychiatry and we can all be kept up to date on forthcoming conferences and courses that may be relevant to our personal development.

Members also feedback on any training, conferences or meetings that they have attended and discuss key points.

The meetings usually last 3 hours of which we set aside an hour for case based discussions. In this way we support each other with complex clinical scenarios, reflect on our practice and fulfil the criteria for CBD for the purposes of revalidation.
