RESEARCH AND CLINICAL PROJECTS

The first cycle highlighted the wide variation in training within and between deaneries; we provided feedback to the training leads and completed the second cycle.
- National survey of training in perinatal psychiatry
This survey showed the variations in opportunities for training in perinatal psychiatry and highlighted the interest of trainees in this area.
- Nationwide study on ‘ECG training for Psychiatrists’ a THOTH project
Survey showed skills required for interpretation of ECG were lacking amongst psychiatrists.
- Nationwide survey on ‘Satisfaction with Gender realignment service’
Study findings revealed early age for surgery in accurately diagnosed patients with meaningful support, equality in access to services and reducing post-operative complications were considered to be important factors by our patients. Incorporating these factors should contribute to improved services for this specialist group of patients.
