On the 26th January 2018 I attended the Winter Meeting of the Royal College of Psychiatrists in Scotland. Unfortunately I was only able to stay for the morning session.
This educational meeting was titled “Realistic Psychiatry and Quality Improvement”.
Dr John Mitchell, Principal Medical Officer and Psychiatric Advisor to the Scottish Government was Chairing the morning session and, after a short introduction, passed over to Dr Gill Paterson, the Scottish Clinical Leadership Fellow 2016-17 who was given less than 3 minutes to talk about Realistic Psychiatry. In the time that she had, Dr Paterson was able to outline some of the intentions behind Realistic Psychiatry and I hope that she will be given another opportunity to give more detail to the Scottish psychiatric community.
The rest of the morning was given over to Improvement Science.
