Psych 2

This is a residential course held over two days for technicians and pharmacists with some limited clinical experience in psychiatric pharmacy practice.

Course overview

Psych 2 is an extension to the Psych 1 course and as such will cover some of the more specialised areas of mental health that are not covered on Psych 1.

Training addresses highly specialised fields within mental health. The mental health conditions covered are sometimes seen on general inpatient wards - either as primary diagnoses or concomitant with other conditions - or they may be handled through specialist services and inpatient facilities.

Who would benefit from this course

Psych 2 is suitable for pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and medicines management staff with some experience in mental health who wish to expand their knowledge in the more specialist fields associated with mental healthcare.
