This one-day interprofessional course is aimed at paediatric trainees (ST1-8), paediatric nurses (bands 5-8), child and adolescent mental health professionals, core psychiatry trainees, child and adolescent psychiatry higher trainees, and any doctors undertaking a paediatric placement or with an interest in child health. It revolves around the management of young people with physical and mental health co-morbidity in the general hospital setting.
