Events and Meetings
Psychiatric diagnoses sometimes seem to be everywhere. Often the categories discussed within healthcare settings and popular culture are the ones listed in the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders – the DSM. How, though, are DSM diagnoses really used outside the US - and especially in mental health law? Perhaps more importantly, how should they be used?
The objective of this course is to provide an introduction to the management of randomised control trials (RCTS), by giving an overview of the standard processes and legal requirements necessary to undertake clinical research.
The 9th annual NiSALS meeting will be hosted by Edinburgh. It will start morning of Wednesday 5th December, ending lunchtime Thursday 6th December, allowing onward travel to the main ALS symposium which is in Glasgow (~1 hour by train).
Join us for EdInburgh Neuroscience's 2018 annual Christmas Public Lecture and find out why our blood vessels are so critical to the health of our brains. Professor Joanna Wardlaw is one of Edinburgh's pioneering neuroscientists and a Principal Investigator in the new UK Dementia Research Institute at the University of Edinburgh.
The details are still to be finalised but the morning will be for PhD Students, with networking and an informal '3 Minute Thesis'-style competition.
