Event Information

The event is for all health professionals who work, or have worked, in the Mental Health Sector.

Programme

The event has a fantastic programme (doc) with speakers who are experts in their field.

Speakers

  • Professor Anthony Cleare - “What’s new in treatment-resistant depression”
  • Professor David Taylor - “Psychopharmacology update for the general psychiatrist”

Professor David Taylor is Director of Pharmacy and Pathology at the Maudsley Hospital and Professor of Psychopharmacology at King’s College.  Professor Taylor has been the lead author of the Maudsley Prescribing Guidelines since their inception in 1993; the Maudsley Prescribing Guidelines have sold over 300,000 copies in thirteen editions and twelve languages.  David has also authored around 300 clinical papers in journals such as the BMJ, British Journal of Psychiatry and Journal of Clinical Psychiatry.

In his presentation, Professor Taylor will discuss answers to the following questions:

  • Drug discontinuation – time to change?
  • The end of minocycline?
  • Flupentixol decanoate – an atypical typical?
  • Wither olanzapine LAI?
  • Dopamine partial agonists – the future?
  • What’s behind treatment refractory psychosis?
  • Dr Dietmar Hank - “Adult ADHD – an update for clinicians”
  • Dr Steve Pearce - “Personality disorder management for the general psychiatrist”

Dr Steve Pearce has published and worked in the field of personality disorder for 15 years, and is head of the specialist community personality disorder service in Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire. He is a past president of the British and Irish Group for the Study of Personality Disorder, and current chair of the RCPsych faculty of medical psychotherapy.

PD poses challenges for general psychiatric services, both in community care and inpatients.

  • Should I make the diagnosis, and how should I discuss it with my patient?
  • What can be achieved in a brief outpatient appointment?  
  • Does care coordination/psychiatric involvement for some PD patients do more harm than good?
  • What is the best way to manage a patient whose inpatient admission is leading to escalating risks?

In this talk, Dr Steve Pearce will address common dilemmas

  • Professor Julia Sinclair - "Addiction update for the general psychiatrist"
  • Dr Rick Fraser - " Should we get rid of the CAMHS/AMHS divide and move to 0-25 services?"
