Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is a treatment for adult patients with Clinical Depression and many other psychiatric disorders. It is effective, pain free and with few or no side effects. NICE has recently approved magnetic treatment for depression and is gaining in popularity in USA, Australia and the rest of Europe but not so much in the UK. This is a grand step towards neuromodulation and physical interventions in clinical mainstream psychiatry.
We have organised a workshop where professionals could not only refresh their knowledge about the latest research about efficacy of rTMS but also about the practicalities of working with the TMS equipment. The workshop is relevant for GPs, Psychiatrists, nurses and other mental health professionals who would like to know more about this groundbreaking and effective treatment. It is in collaboration with the Royal College of Psychiatrists.

09.15 – 10.15 – Overview of GMC complaints data and investigation process
10.15 – 11.15 – Revalidation update and reflection in the appraisal process
