Rapid tranquillisation in children and adolescents

This module will help you to understand how to manage violence in young people and adolescents. It outlines the rapid tranquillisation (RT) guidance for this age group, including the different classes of medication used in RT and their routes of administration. You will also learn about post-RT monitoring and become aware of special circumstances that require additional consideration when RT is used. CPD credits: 1

Metabolic syndrome and schizophrenia

Metabolic syndrome is a global epidemic that can have severe effects. It is common in people with schizophrenia, and antipsychotic agents can increase the risks. However, appropriate intervention by clinicians can reduce the risk of mortality and morbidity. This module offers a framework to help with the diagnosis of metabolic syndrome and advises on appropriate treatment paths for patients at risk. CPD credits: 1

School refusal

School non-attendance is associated with reduced academic performance, social isolation, impaired self-esteem and increased likelihood of unemployment in the future. There are many reasons why a child may fail to attend school, but this module focuses on emotionally based school refusal, specifically due to problems such as fear, anxiety or oppositional behaviour. It discusses how to provide a comprehensive assessment and management plan and suggests approaches for more complex cases. CPD credits: 1
