Maudsley Simulation training for NHS Clinicians  

Maudsley Simulation is the UK’s first simulation training centre focusing on mental health with the aim of improving services for all who are affected or impacted by mental health issues. Since 2014 working as part of South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, we have successfully developed a range of new simulation training courses which you can browse their website for more information. 

Two day course in use of the Mini PAS-ADD & ChA-PAS for mental health assessment of people with intellectual disability - dates to be confirmed shortly

Recognising and responding to mental health needs has been one of the most important developments in the field of intellectual disability over the past 40 years.  During that time, staff working with people who have ID have become increasingly sophisticated in their knowledge of mental health issues, and increasingly pivotal in the roles they fulfil.  Overall, the assessment of mental health problems has become an increasingly collaborative venture between psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, social workers and others.  The PAS-ADD tools have become widely adopted throughout the UK, Australia and many other countries, as a way of improving the quality of assessment, and communication of information between professionals.
