Improving Psychiatry Placement Inductions

Dr Charlotte Turner

Dr Turner has recognised that psychiatry placements can be daunting and that local trust inductions for psychiatry are highly variable. Her project entails designing a standardised curriculum for local trust inductions in psychiatry across the Peninsula deanery.

This would help new trainees to psychiatry to deliver safe and effective patient care at the same time as  enhancing their experience within the specialty. The curriculum will be based on survey findings from trainees, supplemented by input from senior doctors and a process of programme evaluation. It is hoped that following local implementation, use of the curriculum could be expanded and tested across different deaneries over the UK.
