Managing addiction in psychiatric settings 

Thursday 25 February 2021

This taster session covered some key situations in which psychiatrists have had to manage problems related to addiction. The focus was on clinical scenarios, with guidance on recognition and management.
It is was designed to be helpful for consultants, higher trainees and specialty doctors who have not had opportunities for specialist addiction training.
The webinar also provided a "taster" for a series of webinars planned for later in 2021, to cover a wider range of addiction topics.
