About the course

This one-day skills refresher course for psychiatry trainees returning to work covers the assessment and management of patients using simulation training.

The course is for all psychiatry trainees that are returning to clinical practice in London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex.

Course programme

The morning session will focus on clinical updates, mental health legislation and pharmacology updates, with reference to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. The afternoon session will give you an opportunity to join our new innovative virtual simulation training.

Simulated patient scenarios and reflective learning discussions are facilitated by our trainers, who are current psychiatry higher trainees in SLAM. The scenarios will address assessment, management and collaborative working with service users throughout a patient journey in various settings.
