Perinatal Guidelines Meeting Now Open for Booking
Friday, 12th May 2017
Prescribing for women with mental health problems in the context of pregnancy and breastfeeding is an ongoing challenge for both clinicians and the women themselves, because of the limited amount of evidence around the risks and benefits associated with the untreated disorders and the different therapeutic options. This conference introduces the first BAP Guidelines on this topic, and comprises speakers from the group who have developed this document and who are experts in its clinical, research and policy implications. The meeting will include state-of-the art and pragmatic updates, with key recommendations for the management of specific disorders, and will be an excellent educational opportunity for primary care doctors as well as specialists and allied professionals in psychiatry, pediatrics, obstetrics, midwifery, and related disciplines. This is an essential meeting for all those with an interest in treating mental health problems in the perinatal period.
