Course Outline

Participants will have the opportunity to be involved in a series of simulated scenarios focusing on the assessment and management of a variety of perinatal mental health presentations including depression, anxiety, postpartum psychosis,  personality disorder and substance misuse. After each scenario participants are encouraged to reflect on experiences and learning through specifically designed debrief models, to help them learn positively and constructively from the experience.

The course also addresses the challenges faced when seeing patients in different environments including the emergency department, the obstetric ward, the GP surgery and at home. It aims to get different professionals working together to further their understanding of the challenges faced and enhance cross discipline working.
