The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust is running a FREE webinar via Zoom on Monday, 27 September.
With one in ten women experiencing mental health problems during or after pregnancy, it’s the responsibility of all professionals involved in their care to gain an understanding of the impact of perinatal mental illness and its associated risks.
This webinar will explore the role of training for professionals involved in the care of women and families throughout the perinatal period – helping you to feel more confident navigating this area in your professional role, and making informed decisions on training for yourself and your colleagues. Drawing on a variety of clinical scenarios and case studies.
The webinar will be led by Jo Brook, who is the Perinatal Mental Health Training and Service Development Lead for our Trust, and Dr Lucinda Green, a Consultant Perinatal Psychiatrist. Drawing on a variety of clinical scenarios and case studies, they will identify a number of key issues which professionals need to learn about; discuss how targeted training can help professionals in different roles throughout the perinatal care pathway; and help you to evaluate which training that is right for yourself and your colleagues, in the context of the NHS Long Term Plan. We will also set aside time to respond to your comments and questions, and provide some follow-up resources and information, so that you can scope and sense-check your own training needs.
