About the course

Psychiatry trainees returning to work

PLEASE NOTE:  THIS COURSE IS FOR PSYCHIATRY TRAINEES RETURNING TO CLINICAL PRACTICE IN LONDON, KENT, SURREY OR SUSSEX ONLY.

 

This one-day simulation course aims to support Psychiatry trainees to return to clinical practice after an absence. All Psychiatry trainees that are returning to clinical practice in London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex are welcome and accessibility arrangements can be made. The focus of the day is on updates to clinical practice, small group teaching, simulated patient scenarios and reflective debriefs to promote learning.

The morning sessions will focus on clinical updates, mental health legislation and doctors’ wellbeing. Lunch will be provided before an afternoon of simulation training involving simulated patient scenarios and reflective learning discussions facilitated by our trainers. The scenarios will address assessment, management and collaborative working with service users throughout a patient journey in various settings.

The fusion of Education and the Health Service is extremely exciting and now indeed essential; I am thrilled that St Mary’s is at the forefront of this. I am truly invigorated to disseminate many nuggets of wisdom and tangible strategies gained yesterday to my entire school community.

The knowledge and skills help children in many areas e.g. friendships, learning, attitude, dealing with problems at home and school. Skills will stay with them as they progress helping them to be reflective and emotionally resilient.
