The Maudsley Prescribing Guidelines in Psychiatry

 International Conference 2021

“Clinical Psychopharmacology in the time of COVID”

Wednesday 20th October 9am-5pm

Attracting delegates from across the globe, the Maudsley Prescribing Guidelines International conference presents the latest evidence-based research and developments in clinical psychopharmacology.

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 prac

tical guidance”. Both conferences were attended by over two 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.

The third Maudsley Prescribing Guidelines International Conference “From evidence to practice” was held on Monday 17 December 2018 to mark the public

ation of the 13th edition. Over 200 clinicians attended; more than 50 from outside the UK.

The fourth Maudsley Prescribing Guidelines International Conference Clinical Psychopharmacology in the time of COVID will be held remotely on Wednesday 20th October 2021.  Coinciding with publication of the 14th edition, the lead editors of the Guidelines and other key contributors, many of them leaders in their fields, will outline the evidence behind the guidelines.

Where does the conference fee go?

We have tried to keep the fee to attend this virtual conference as low as possible. The fee covers our administrative costs and provides us with a small profit.

All of this profit is used to fund research in psychopharmacology and to enable NHS staff to register for PhD courses at King’s College. None of our speakers receives a fee and the authors do not receive any financial reward from the conference.

The conference will consist of fourteen 30-minute presentations by the authors of The Guidelines, outlining the evidence and practical experience behind the guidance in the 14th edition.
