Plenary talks and workshops will explore the interface between Psychiatry and the Law as it applies to all psychiatrists in their day to day practice. Experts from both the psychiatric and legal profession will present on topics including Practicalities of Law for the Psychiatrist, Capacity, Legal Issues in Eating Disorders, and Children and the Law, to name but a few. A moderated panel with representation from Psychiatry, REFOCUS (Recovery Experience Forum of Carers and Users of Services) and the Department of Health will also discuss the complexities of our practice in light of the above in “Making Tough Decisions: The Doctor and Patient Perspective”.

To close the day you are warmly invited to attended a social event with refreshments, where you will have the opportunity to speak with members of the Trainee Committee as well your fellow NCHDs working across Ireland in many different areas of Psychiatry.
