Psychiatry in Dialogue with Neuroscience, Medicine and Society
After a period of unprecedented growth, psychiatry is facing new challenges in the context of economic austerity and changing professionalism. Psychiatry is also at the threshold of exciting new opportunities:
The various "Psychiatry in Dialogue with Neuroscience, Medicine and Society" events will feature a range of speakers from across the world, aiming to address a wide range of concerns from recruitment to clinical practice and from children to older people. Neuroscience, clinical research, the law and the humanities will offer a range of perspectives on issues that matter every day to doctors, patients and the general public, including leaders and policy makers.
With healthcare benefiting from increasing percentage allocation of national resources and assuming industrial proportions as a social enterprise, attention to leadership and the governance arrangements of society in general and health services in particular is becoming ever more important and the programme will reflect this.
