Background

Psychopharmacology is the single most commonly used treatment modality in psychiatry. It is vital we use drugs to their optimal effect - matching our choices and regimes to the needs and symptoms of patients whilst minimising side effects and avoiding adverse interactions with other drugs. New drugs and new ways of using old ones regularly appear. With ever increasing demands on our professional time it is difficult to keep up to date.

In 1997 the BAP developed a programme for CPD in state-of-the-art psychopharmacology tailored, following extensive discussion with the profession, to emphasise practical everyday problems encountered by all prescribing psychiatrists. The Course is also very relevant to pharmacists. This important educational programme comprises modules (1.5 day) that include lectures, workshops and discussion sessions. Individuals may choose to complete either Part 1 of the Certificate or to extend their participation and study to complete Part 2 (for full details see Requirements).

The programme continues to be extremely successful, with most modules over-subscribed.

PLEASE NOTE THAT ON EACH MODULE YOU WILL BE PROVIDED WITH A LARGE RING-BINDER CONTAINING COMPREHENSIVE COURSE NOTES, DIAGRAMS AND READING LISTS.

This educational programme is completely non-promotional.

Any queries relating to the BAP Clinical Certificate please contact Susan Chandler.

  • Attendees are recommended to supplement Certificate attendance with the Fundamentals in Clinical Psychopharmacology covering the underlying pharmacology of the drugs used in psychiatry, and the Online CPD Resource for the generic principles of safe and effective prescribing for mental illness (e.g. pharmacokinetics, drug interactions, adherence).
