Mental Health SIG seminar 2020

Put the 27th & 28th June 2020 in your diaries for the Psych SIG seminar !

We are delighted that Prof. David Taylor (lead editor of the Maudsley Prescribing Guidelines in Psychiatry & author of many research papers) is coming to NZ to present at our 2020 seminar – a great opportunity to catch up on what is happening in the world of psychopharmacology. Don’t miss out !

 So far some other topics we have lined up include oral ketamine and treatment resistant depression/anxiety, pharmacogenomics, perinatal guidelines for psychotropics, MOH update on the MH Enquiry Report etc. 

However, we would like more contributions from you -  do you have an interesting project, case study or medicines information enquiry ?  This is a good opportunity to present to a friendly group of like-minded pharmacists. Please let me know if you have something of interest.

 See you next June !
