Acute Psychiatric Emergencies (APEx) focuses on the emergency care of patients presenting with acute psychiatric crisis. The course is designed to deliver the necessary knowledge and skills to trainees in both emergency medicine and psychiatry as well as to nursing and other allied health professionals that are involved in their care. It will allow a shared understanding of the problem and also foster a common language between professionals that expedites excellent care.
Our short courses give clinicians a practical approach to dealing with emergencies. This course will be delivered as blended learning employing a course manual, e-modules and two days face-to-face. During the face-to-face element, modalities are selected that best deliver the required content and APEx will include skill stations, workshops, role plays and simulations.
