Acute Psychiatric Emergencies (APEx)

APEx Course Summary

Acute Psychiatric Emergencies (APEx) focusses on the emergency care of patients presenting with acute psychiatric crisis. The course is designed to deliver the necessary knowledge and skills to trainees in both emergency medicine and psychiatry as well as to nursing and other allied health professionals that are involved in their care. It will allow a shared understanding of the problem and also foster a common language between professionals that expedites excellent care.

Our short courses give clinicians a practical approach to dealing with emergencies. This course will be delivered as blended learning employing a course manual, e-modules and two days face-to-face. During the face-to-face element, modalities are selected that best deliver the required content and APEx will include skill stations, workshops, role plays and simulations.

APEx Fact Sheet

CPD Points System Revised guidance from the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges emphasises that the focus of CPD should be on its quality and reflection of its impact on a doctor’s practice, rather than the amount of time spent on the activity and that the responsibility for identifying CPD requirements rests with the individual and should be based on their personal areas of practice and personal development plan agreed at their annual appraisal. Although one 'CPD credit' will normally equate to one hour of educational activity, the amount of educational activity obtained from a specific event may vary between individuals depending on an individual’s specific learning outcomes.
