Antidepressant drugs and suicide

The House of Commons Health Select Committee is undertaking an enquiry into action that is necessary to improve suicide prevention in England. A recent meeting considered the relationships between antidepressant drugs and suicide. The British Association for Psychopharmacology prepared a written statement for the Committee and the oral evidence is also available.


New from Choosing Wisely UK

The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges hosts the "Choosing Wisely" campaign in the UK, part of which is to identify investigations or interventions of questionable value. The campaign recently published recommendations for clinicians. Four of the recommendations were for psychiatrists, and three of these concerned psychopharmacology (Choosing Wisely UK).


From the European Psychiatric Association

The EPA has published the outline of a psychopharmacology-pharmacotherapy curriculum for the training of specialists in psychiatry, which it hopes will be developed at a European level. Access the outline via OpenAthens.
