Many of Oxford’s leading psychiatrists will be speaking at St Catherine’s College on September 16th, 17th and 18th for a conference entitled ‘Oxford Psychiatry 2007’. The conference is being organised jointly by Oxford University’s Departments of Psychiatry and Continuing Education, and will disseminate important advances in psychiatric practice and related developments in psychiatric research. Speakers at the conference are all members of the University’s Department of Psychiatry, ensuring high quality talks at the cutting edge of clinical practice and research.

The conference will address some of the critical and complex issues now facing psychiatry and psychiatric research, such as: What is the optimal treatment approach in psychosis? How do antidepressants really work? What is happening in the ageing brain? What causes autism, and is it a problem in adults? Was NICE right to limit the use of cholinesterase inhibitors to moderate dementia only? How can we use research evidence in our daily clinical practice?

Dr Rebecca Lingwood, joint organiser of the conference, and Director of Continuing Professional Development at the University’s Department for Continuing Education, said: ‘We are delighted to be working with the Department of Psychiatry to deliver what promises to be an exceptional conference, which will provide an update of the highest quality for clinicians from the UK and overseas’.

The event is supported by a grant from AstraZeneca.
