The Maudsley Prescribing Guidelines International Conference 2018 

“From Evidence to Practice” 

Monday 17th December, 9:30am – 5:15pm

Attracting delegates from across the globe, the Maudsley Prescribing Guidelines International conference brings you the latest evidence-based research and developments in psychiatry. Coinciding with each edition launch, you will hear expert knowledge and latest research informed by clinical practice from the lead editors of the Guidelines and key contributors, many leaders in their respective fields. Our previous conferences have discussed subject areas from schizophrenia, depression, bipolar disorder to specialist areas such as dementia, ADHD and renal failure.

In July 2012, an inaugural conference “outlining the evidence behind the guidance” was held to celebrate the 11th edition followed by a second conference in September 2014 to launch the 12th edition with the theme “Getting up-to-date: assimilating the latest evidence into practical guidance”. Both conferences were attended by over one hundred delegates from around the world and provided the opportunity to hear written guidelines presented by the contributors and to participate in a question and answer session.
