Refresher Training is meant for Psychiatrists who are currently actively involved in any aspect of prescribing or administering ECT. . They are designed for Psychiatrists who have already completed the Basic ECT Training and wish to enhance their knowledge and skill base towards all/ specific areas of ECT Practice.
The ECT Refresher courses for the advanced practitioner cover the latest advances, clarifying specific principles, and cover specific areas in great depth .
As we know , offering ECT to patients with or without medical comorbidity at times brings up numerous complexities requiring a higher degree of clinical understanding and modification of techniques to suit the patient. Specific refresher courses are designed to cover some of these areas.
The Refresher courses are held over the year in different Modules covering different areas and topics viz: cognitive adverse effects and techniques to minimise, ECT Prescribing, hands on workshops focussing on Procedural skills etc etc.
The topic for the upcoming Refresher courses is announced in advance for the Practitioners to decide the suitability to attend.
As the refresher courses are also Endorsed by the RANZCP CPD, the participants are able to obtain CPD points for attending the course.
The Participants also receive a certificate of completion upon successful completion of the requirements of the ECT Refresher Course.
