Psychedelic drug therapy in psychiatry

What are psychedelic drugs? Are they simply dangerous drugs of abuse? Or sacramental tools used by non-Western cultures for spiritual value? Can they assist us in our study of human consciousness and the physiology of the brain? Or treat patients with unremitting mental health problems? Psychedelics have a controversial history and the subject has always been divisive. This module looks objectively and scientifically at the relative risks and benefits of psychedelic drugs.

Patient safety in mental health: CCQI module 4

Patient safety should be at the forefront of everything psychiatrists do when they deliver any care or treatment. Since the 1990s the patient-safety movement has grown and gained momentum and there has been a move away from a culture of blame and towards an approach that promotes openness and learning from errors. A key theme is the value of reporting, investigating and learning from incidents. This module looks at guidelines, initiatives and tools for ensuring that this happens both locally and nationally to prevent further harm. CPD credits: 1.5

Children's mental health within Scottish legislation

Scotland has its own legal system and a parliament with responsibility over devolved matters, including health, education, justice and social work. Psychiatrists who work in any jurisdiction must adhere to the ‘law of the land’ as well as universal professional codes of ethics and guidelines. Several areas of Scottish legislation directly concern children with mental disorders. This module summarises key Scottish legislation and its relevance in the assessment and treatment of children and young people. CPD credits: 1
