  • Undergraduate learning in psychiatry: can we prepare our future medical
           graduates better'
    • Authors: Vincent Russell; Linda O’Rourke, Kieran C. Murphy
      Pages: 73 - 76
      Abstract: Irish medical schools attract an increasingly diverse student population and produce graduates who will practise in many parts of the world. There are particular implications in this for the planning and delivery of the undergraduate psychiatry curriculum. In all countries, mental health services struggle for equitable resourcing, and mental health care within general medical services remains relatively neglected. The traditional undergraduate psychiatry offering has been justifiably criticised for being excessively oriented towards secondary care when the vast majority of medical graduates will pursue careers in primary care or in specialties other than psychiatry. Recently published articles in the Irish Journal of Psychological Medicine address the current challenges and opportunities in providing an undergraduate experience that better prepares students for the mental health aspects of medical practice in a global context. We summarise and discuss these contributions and the recent Royal College of Psychiatrists publication Choose Psychiatry: Guidance for Medical Schools.

      Abstract: ObjectivesTo examine the delivery and assessment of psychiatry at undergraduate level in the six medical schools in the Republic of Ireland offering a medical degree programme.MethodsA narrative description of the delivery and assessment of psychiatry at undergraduate level by collaborative senior faculty members from all six universities in Ireland.ResultsPsychiatry is integrated to varying degrees across all medical schools. Clinical experience in general adult psychiatry and sub-specialities is provided by each medical school; however, the duration of clinical attachment varies, and the provision of some sub-specialities (i.e. forensic psychiatry) is dependent on locally available resources. Five medical schools provide ‘live’ large group teaching sessions (lectures), and all medical schools provide an array of small group teaching sessions. Continuous assessment encompasses 10–35% of the total assessment marks, depending on the medical school. Only one medical school does not provide a clinical examination in the form of an Objective Structured Clinical Examination with viva examinations occurring at three medical schools.ConclusionsMany similarities exist in relation to the delivery of psychiatry at undergraduate level in Ireland. Significant variability exists in relation to assessment with differences in continuous assessment, written and clinical exams and the use of vivas noted. The use of e-learning platforms has increased significantly in recent years, with their role envisaged to include cross-disciplinary teaching sessions and analysis of examinations and individual components within examinations which will help refine future examinations and enable greater sharing of resources between medical schools.

  • Evaluation of a co-facilitated information and learning programme for
           service users: the EOLAS programme
    • Authors: A. Higgins; C. Downes, M. Monahan, D. Hevey, F. Boyd, N. Cusack, P. Gibbons
      Pages: 89 - 98
      Abstract: Background:The co-production and co-facilitation of recovery-focused education programmes is one way in which service users may be meaningfully involved as partners.Objectives:To evaluate the impact of a clinician and peer co-facilitated information programme on service users’ knowledge, confidence, recovery attitudes, advocacy and hope, and to explore their experience of the programme.Methods:A sequential design was used involving a pre–post survey to assess changes in knowledge, confidence, advocacy, recovery attitudes and hope following programme participation. In addition, semi-structured interviews with programme participants were completed. Fifty-three participants completed both pre- and post-surveys and twelve individuals consented to interviews.Results:The results demonstrated statistically significant changes in service users’ knowledge about mental health issues, confidence and advocacy. These improvements were reflected in the themes which emerged from the interviews with participants (n = 12), who reported enhanced knowledge and awareness of distress and wellness, and a greater sense of hope. In addition, the peer influence helped to normalise experiences for participants, while the dual facilitation engendered equality of participation and increased the opportunity for meaningful collaboration between service users and practitioners.Conclusions:The evaluation highlights the potential strengths of a service user and clinician co-facilitated education programme that acknowledges and respects the difference between the knowledge gained through self-experience and the knowledge gained through formal learning.

      Abstract: ObjectiveThe study was designed to establish and evaluate the impact of a 6-week Balint group on empathy and resilience in fourth-year medical students during their psychiatry rotation.MethodologyThis prospective study used the Jefferson Scale of Empathy – Student Version and the Brief Resilience Scale before and after 6-week Balint groups. Participating students also completed a qualitative assessment of their experience.ResultsStudents who participated were enthusiastic regarding the value of Balint groups in promoting self-reflection and gaining insight into self- and patient-care dynamics. There was a significant difference in empathy scores pre- and post-Balint intervention. There was no significant difference in resilience scores.ConclusionThe establishment of a 6-week Balint group for fourth-year medical students was successful in increasing empathy. Students reported a positive view of Balint and its beneficial role in this study group.

  • What influences postgraduate psychiatric trainees’ attitudes to
           clinical audit'
    • Authors: S. McWilliams; S. Schofield
      Pages: 106 - 110
      Abstract: IntroductionClinical audit is an important component of safe and ethical practice but many clinicians cite barriers to engagement in audit.MethodologyA total of 81 basic specialist trainees in psychiatry were surveyed in terms of their basic demographic details and their knowledge, direct experience and attitudes in relation to clinical audit.ResultsAmong the 49 (60.5%) who responded, 57.1% had received formal training in audit, but only 20.4% had received more than four hours of training in their whole career. The median positivity score was 30 out of a possible 54 (range 12–40), suggesting that participating trainees were barely more than ‘undecided’ overall when it comes to positive attitudes to clinical audit. Age, nationality and specific training did not predict attitudes to clinical audit. Gender, years of clinical experience and direct experience of clinical audit did not significantly predict attitudes to clinical audit, but these findings are at odds with some previous research.DiscussionMuch work is needed in improving postgraduate trainees’ attitudes to clinical audit, given that clinical audit is essential for good medical practice. Ours is an initial study of this area of training limited by sample size and the narrowness of the group tested. Further study of other specialities, higher trainees and consultant trainers would further enhance our understanding.

  • Psychiatry as a specialization: influential factors and gender differences
           among medical students in a low- to middle-income country

      Abstract: ObjectivesTo assess the perception of Ghanaian medical students about factors influencing their career interest in psychiatry and to explore gender differences in these perceptions.MethodsThis is a cross-sectional quantitative survey of 5th and 6th year medical students in four public medical schools in Ghana. Data were analyzed with descriptive and inferential statistics using SPSS version 20.ResultsResponses were obtained from 545 medical students (response rate of 52%). Significantly, more male medical students expressed that stigma is an important consideration for them to choose or not to choose a career in psychiatry compared to their female counterparts (42.7% v. 29.7%, respectively). Over two-thirds of the medical students perceived that psychiatrists were at risk of being attacked by their patients, with just a little over a third expressing that risk was an important consideration for them to choose a career in psychiatry. There were no gender differences regarding perceptions about risk. Around 3 to 4 out of 10 medical students will consider careers in psychiatry if offered various incentives with no gender differences in responses provided.ConclusionOur study presents important and novel findings in the Ghanaian context, which can assist health policy planners and medical training institutions in Ghana to formulate policies and programs that will increase the number of psychiatry residents and thereby increase the psychiatrist-to-patient ratio in Ghana.

  • Foreign accent syndrome and psychosis: a case report
    • Authors: M. Asghar; P. Whitty
      Pages: 118 - 121
      Abstract: This is a case report on a 57-year-old lady who presented to the Psychiatry Department of Tallaght Hospital after being referred by Neurology Department. She was initially attending Neurology Department for idiopathic Parkinson’s disease which was later refuted as there was no objective evidence of response to treatment. She attended the A&E department with altered consciousness and headache, but her computed tomography of the brain was normal, and was diagnosed with migraine. But it was noted that she was reporting paranoia and auditory hallucinations, and her family had noticed marked change in her accent. On assessment in psychiatric outpatient she was noted to have psychotic symptoms. She reported these symptoms to be ongoing for the last 4 years, but have worsened to an extent that she was extremely distressed by them. She had acquired a Scottish accent. The change in accent coincided with worsening of her psychotic symptoms. Based on her assessment she was diagnosed with schizophrenia and was commenced on olanzapine. Not only her psychotic symptoms resolved but also her accent reverted to native form.

  • A clozapine-induced hypersensitivity reaction
    • Authors: L. Curtis; B. Hallahan, F. Byrne
      Pages: 122 - 125
      Abstract: A 57-year-old female patient with a diagnosis of schizo-affective disorder since 1986 was commenced on clozapine due to persistent positive and negative psychotic symptoms in September 2014. After commencement of clozapine she was delusion free and demonstrated an improvement in negative symptoms. Three months after commencement of clozapine she developed a hypersensitivity reaction. Her symptoms continued to deteriorate despite being prescribed an anti-histamine. Clozapine was discontinued 6 days after the appearance of a generalised pruritic rash, as it was believed to be the probable cause. There was complete resolution of symptoms 1 week after discontinuation of clozapine. Clozapine was replaced with olanzapine and amisulpride. There has been no similar cutaneous or allergic reactions for the past 30 months.

  • Patients and carers as teachers in psychiatric education: a literature
           review and discussion
    • Authors: C. Miller; V. Pradeep, M. Mohamad, Z. Izmeth, M. T. P. Reynolds, G. Gulati
      Pages: 126 - 133
      Abstract: IntroductionThe direct involvement of patients and carers in psychiatric education is driven by policy in the United Kingdom and Ireland. The benefits of this involvement are well known, however, it is important to consider the ethical aspects. This paper suggests how further research could explore and potentially mitigate adverse outcomes.MethodA literature search evaluating the role of patients and carer involvement in psychiatric education was undertaken to summarise existing evidence relating to the following: methods of involvement, evidence of usefulness, patient’s/carer’s views and learners’ views.ResultsThe Medline search produced 231 articles of which 31 were included in the literature review based on the key themes addressed in the paper.Discussion/conclusionThe available evidence is generally positive regarding the use of patients and carers in psychiatric education. However, available research is varied in approach and outcome with little information on the ethical consequences. More research is required to inform policies on teaching regarding potential adverse effects of service user involvement.

  • The frames of the mind of a psychiatrist
    • Authors: M. O. Huttunen
      Pages: 134 - 135
      Abstract: The structures of our mind may be understood as ‘frames’, which play a key role in our everyday goals, choices and decisions. Understanding these often unconscious processes may help us to understand the complex decisions we make in our clinical practice. Such frames may be many in number, being based, for example, on medical, psychological, social, trauma, or problem-solving models. The ‘frames’ we use in our clinical decisions should be tailored to the needs of our patients, and may need to be adapted at different phases of illness.

  • Trainee experience in diagnosis and management of personality disorders
    • Authors: R. Wallace; G. Rush
      Pages: 136 - 140
      Abstract: The diagnosis and management of personality disorders continues to evolve and develop alongside psychiatry internationally, however, not always in a linear fashion. Trainees working in a variety of clinical areas have regular exposure to personality disorder presentations. Psychiatry training bodies continue to adapt their training structure and curriculum, however, there seems to be a lack of sufficient emphasis with regards this area. We are now embarking on a new diagnostic system for personality disorders; this may impact on our clinical practice and perspective of these patients. The role of psychiatrists in diagnosing and managing personality disorders can be unclear at times and may benefit from on-going reflection and standardization.

  • The perspectives of a service user academic and a psychiatric trainee on
           engagement in supervision
    • Authors: S. Gordon; M. Higgins
      Pages: 141 - 145
      Abstract: This paper describes the perspectives of a service user academic and a psychiatric trainee in response to their engagement in service user supervision, now offered as part of our psychological medicine education, as a feature of an innovative service user-led, recovery and human rights focused, contact-based education programme. The supervision, being deliberately focused on exploring and addressing responsiveness to the traditionally underprivileged service user’s perspective, and hence vastly different to clinical supervision, was acknowledged by the trainee as being of distinct value, translating into changes in practice, particularly in terms of addressing power imbalances, enhancing communication with patients, supporting recovery and enabling supported decision-making. The main barrier to implementation of such changes was identified as being the lack of support of senior clinicians. The active support and enablement of trainees who want to share and apply new perspectives, models and approaches being advocated, including through current training, would likely be of benefit to all.
