Practising Psychiatry Competencies
Time & Location
About The Event
This series of courses is aimed at all trainees. The courses focus on clinical skills, beginning with history taking, risk assessment, alliance building, recognising and navigating difficult dynamics and introduction to de-escalation techniques. The series then moves onto bio-psychosocial case formulation and differential diagnosis as well as treatment planning and management of more difficult cases. The learning objectives are based on the core curriculum set out by the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
Participants will be involved in a series of simulated scenarios using actors. Debriefing models are employed to give participants feedback and to assist them in learning positively and constructively from the experience.
After completing this course those attending will be able to:
- perform specialist assessments of patients’ and document relevant history and examination on culturally diverse patients.
- comprehensively assess and document patients’ potential for self-harm or harm to others.
- conduct therapeutic interviews whilst collecting clinically relevant material.
- demonstrate effective communication with patients, relatives and colleagues.
- develop appropriate leadership skills.
- inform and educate patients more effectively.
- demonstrate an improved ability to act in a professional manner at all times.
- construct formulations of patients’ problems including appropriate differential diagnoses.
- recommend relevant investigations and treatments in the context of a clinical management plan.
