Trust Delegates Centre Stage at International Conference 

The importance and value of co-production and people participation in medical education at ELFT has been shared at the Royal College of Psychiatrists International Congress 2022. 
RCP Congress 2022

An audience of mental health care professionals from across the world listened to a presentation on the theme from the Trust’s head of people participation Millie Smith, service user representatives Adrian Curwen and Megan Hill and Medical Education/ELFT Fellows Sonya Rudra and Abigail Swerdlow. 

“The annual conference brings together psychiatrists and other mental health professionals to share learning,” said Millie. 

“It was a privilege to have the opportunity to highlight the vital role of co-production within medical education and champion the value that people with lived experience can provide in informing and guiding change across the healthcare system.” 

Dr Chloe Beale, consultant psychiatrist in City and Hackney and Trust lead for suicide prevention, was another ELFT speaker who attended the congress at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre on June 20-23. 

She talked about patient safety in one session and gave a masterclass on medical emergencies in eating disorders in another.
