Session Description
In the era of personalised and integrated mental health care, neuroscience will play an increasing role in psychiatry. To take advantage of this, clinicians need a robust foundation in neuroscience. Most psychiatrists are not experts in neuroscience, but they need to be knowledgeable enough and confident enough to effectively integrate into patient care the advances that will be made during their working lives. Early Career Psychiatrists and more established clinicians need to be prepared to model this integration for psychiatrists in training, because the next generation of psychiatrists, more than any before, will need to be able to understand, critically evaluate and translate new research findings into improved clinical care for their patients. This course will present an immersive experience of this new era of integrated neuroscience. Participants will gain experience of innovative strategies for teaching and learning in a range of settings, including patient education. Participants will take part in facilitated pair- and group-work, including role play of psychiatrist-patient interactions, and teaching scenarios, using examples of relevant knowledge and understanding gained from cutting-edge neuroscience research. Participants will interact closely with speakers to highlight and exchange best practice and to identify opportunities for adaptation of strategies to different national contexts. On completion of the course, our aim is that participants will better understand techniques to integrate modern neuroscience into psychiatric training and will have increased confidence in their didactic skills.
