Early Intervention in Psychosis Stakeholder Event
17 February at 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Join us to design improvements on how early intervention in psychosis is delivered within Forth Valley
Psychosis is characterised by hallucinations, delusions and disturbed thinking. It can cause considerable distress and disability for people affected, and for their families or carers. It is estimated that there are approximate 1,600 new presentations of psychosis in Scotland a year. Early intervention can reduce the amount of time a patient needs to spend in hospital, and lead to more effective and lasting outcomes.
Healthcare Improvement Scotland (HIS) has recruited NHS Forth Valley to participate in a detailed exploration of our current Early Intervention in Psychosis (EIP) services. During phase one of this improvement programme we will create a local EIP improvement plan. This Early Intervention Stakeholder event aims to bring together specialists and stakeholders to map current EIP service provision, explore what is required to improve EIP services and consider what a good EIP service looks like for service providers and service users in FV.
Please report to the main reception on arrival. Refreshments and registration from 5pm. Register your interest by email to FV-UHB.FVQuality@nhs.net
