New training seminars
We have recently expanded our portfolio of training seminars to include some fantastic new additions: Sleep Disorders, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and Smoking Cessation in Mental Health. To book any of these new courses below, please contact your Visiting Pharmacist.
Our new Sleep Disorders training seminar helps healthcare staff understand of the basic pathophysiology of sleep disorders and their management. It explains the different sleep disorders patients may experience as well as how to diagnose and manage or treat sleep disorders both pharmacologically and non-pharmacologically. It discusses the potential causes of sleep disorders and how they can relate to psychiatric disorders, as well as how to maintain good ‘sleep hygiene’.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
The aim of our new ADHD seminar is to provide knowledge on how to diagnose and manage or treat ADHD in children and adults both pharmacologically and non-pharmacologically. It allows staff to understand the differential diagnoses which could present as ADHD and offers attendees the chance to discuss case studies. It also discusses the possible causes and helps staff understand how the NICE guidelines define diagnosis.
Smoking Cessation in Mental Health
This new seminar helps participants gain an understanding of the impact that smoking and smoking cessation have on patients within the mental health sector. It helps staff understand the effects of nicotine in the body, and any dosage and monitoring adjustments required for those on psychotropic medications. It also covers the range of nicotine replacement therapies available in addition to prescription-only medicines and aims to provide staff with greater knowledge of how to support mental health patients with smoking reduction or cessation.
