Feedback from 2019 Module

"A very valuable course that is always well presented and well organised. It’s a shame it is only once a year as it is always oversubscribed!"

"Excellent! Lots of information given. Very organised, well-paced and lots of time for discussion"

"Very well organised and timetabled well. Plenty of time for questions"

"This two-day course is a must attend for any old age psychiatrist. It is packed with the latest evidence base available. The informal scenario sessions collate a huge range of clinical practice and expertise. Highly recommended"
