People with long-term mental health problems or learning disabilities have an increased chance of getting physically ill. Mental health professionals are ideally placed to assess and manage the physical health of their patients, and it is crucial that they stay up to date with the latest clinical advances.

Psychiatry and Physical Health, in association with British Journal of Hospital Medicine and British Journal of Mental Health Nursing, is a prestigious conference that is primarily targeted at hospital and community psychiatrists, specialist psychiatric nurses, and other healthcare professionals with an interest in mental health.

Psychiatry and Physical Health will focus on identifying the links between mental and physical health, and will provide practical advice to all specialists in psychiatry wishing to improve healthcare provision for patients within their care.

Key physical health issues will be discussed, including adverse effects of antipsychotics, cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes, eating disorders, COPD, epilepsy, and substance misuse.

Expert speakers will include:
Dr Alan Cohen, Dr Irene Cormac, Professor Chris Hawley, Dr Fiona Gaughran, Professor Richard Holt, Professor Richard Gray, Dr Louise Restrick, Professor Frank Besag & Professor Laura Goldstein
