Description

Increasingly, the workload in an acute setting is about children and young people with behavioural and emotional problems presenting in crisis. As doctors, we have a responsibility to all children and their families to be advocates and offer early intervention to promote emotional wellbeing and resilience. At a government level, this means lobbying to improve services and to incorporate wellbeing and mental health to the school curriculum and healthcare.What about staff on the front line? What do we need to know as neonatologists and paediatricians working with CYP and their families? How can we change our practice to best support this group? This conference will focus on the promotion of mental health from the neonatal period to adolescence, guiding us through the early interventions available and give us practical tips to provide better care.Benefits of attendingA day focused on the promotion of good mental health in children and young people and difficulties CYP face with and a discussion of our role as paediatriciansDeepening awareness and knowledge of causes of mental health and understanding the practical ways to help in our role as paediatriciansUnique opportunity to meet an expert panel made up of clinicians and representatives from the Welsh Government and third sector to discuss the issues we face as paediatriciansDeveloping ideas of partnership working between health and charitiesLearning objectives Methodology of mental illnessProtective factors for childhood and adolescentsTo comprehend the need to engage politicians and third sector in solving healthcare issuesAudiencePaediatricians, psychiatric doctors and allied healthcare professionals with an interest in mental health and wellbeingFeesEarly bird fees – Use the promotional code EARLYBIRD15 at checkout, valid until 18 January 2019RCPCH Member- Trainees and Nurses: £55RCPCH Member – Consultant: £85Non Member: £135Standard feesRCPCH Member- Trainees and Nurses: £70 RCPCH Member – Consultant: £100Non Member: £150
