Professional Briefing Day: personality disorder

On 29 April, the Faculty will be holding its first professional briefing day of 2015 on personality disorder. This prevalent psychiatric disorder has a major impact on quality of life and fitness for work, but is often poorly understood and frequently neglected by the medical profession. People with personality disorder are often misdiagnosed or incorrectly treated, leading to difficulties managing their condition.

This professional briefing day aims to delve into the psychiatric aspects of personality disorder, debunk the myths surrounding its management and diagnosis, and highlight the important role that occupational physicians have in helping those with personality disorder to manage their condition in the workplace.

The day will include interactive seminar-style lectures on the psychiatric aspects of personality disorder, with a clinical case study to be introduced for discussion. The day will be run by Dr Frank Gallagher, an occupational physician and Fellow of the Faculty, and Professor Conor Duggan of Nottingham University.

Registration is £125 for members and £75 for trainees or concessionary members.  You can book and pay online via our events section.

If you have any questions, please contact John Rafferty at the Faculty.
