One of the General Adult Faculty key objectives for 2019 is to increase data literacy for psychiatrists working in General Adult psychiatry.  You may ask why is this important?
The reason for this is that although the Mental Health FYFV increased funding for mental health services, what most of us are acutely aware of is that this was not for ‘core’ adult mental health services such as CMHTs, HTTs and Inpatient Services.  One of the many reasons for this was lack of data and meaningful outcomes that objectively demonstrate patients that we treat get better.
In order to support psychiatrists working in GAP to advocate and fight for their service we are keen to support trainees, SAS doctors and consultant in the skills necessary to engage, analyse and understand data in order to develop and improve their services and advocate for more funding.  
The conference aims to support jobbing psychiatrists in this journey to get the data, understand and analyse data in order to support their patients to have better care and is open to Multi Disciplinary Team members i.e CPN, and Allied Health Professionals.
