The Registrar

“When I think back all those years when I was on a psychiatric ward feeling very unwell – very very unwell, very scared, very angry, very misunderstood – and here I am now having a very frank and honest conversation with a consultant psychiatrist. I’ve come a long way in terms of my own personal development and that in itself is very healing”

Seth Hunter in conversation with Dr Khaldoon Ahmed, The Registrar Summer 2016.

RE:CREATE Psychiatry are delighted to be the guest editors of the Summer 2016 edition of the Royal College of Psychiatrists trainee journal The Registrar. This issue explores the fundamental relationship between doctor and patient, and features the winner and runners up of the Psychiatric Trainees Committee 2015 competition ‘What I have learned from my patients’, as well as articles from members of the RE:CREATE Psychiatry team.

An online PDF of the journal is available here

To celebrate its publication, we return to The Dragon Café on Monday 25th July with a special ShrinkRadio Dialogues event.

Chaired by Dr Khaldoon Ahmed, and with the help of Dr Lucy Potter, editor of The Registrar, Seth Hunter, The Dragon Café Project Manager, and Dr Louise Murphy, trainee psychiatrist, we will explore the importance of shifting the perspective – and ask: what happens when doctors seek to learn from their patients? What impact does this, if any, have on our own journey?

All welcome to an openhearted dialogue – an opportunity to bring ideas together and reflect on the learning, thoughts, and feelings from our collective experiences.
