About the course

A practical focus on the management of difficult medical disorders relevant to Psychiatric practice – what you won’t find in the textbooks

Discussion Forums.  Delegates split into groups and attend each two Forums in turn.  Each Forum involves practical discussion of grey cases in Psychiatric practice, involving the topics addressed in the morning lectures – in depth analysis leading to what should the Psychiatrist do next?

Detailed and practical discussion of grey cases in Psychiatric practice, in the clinic or on the wards, involving the medical specialities addressed in the lectures earlier in the day.  Feel free to email, greycases@infomedltd.co.uk, your own anonymised grey cases so you can benefit from a discussion in the Discussion Forums

Numbers are strictly limited in order to maximise interaction in the workshops
