International CPD Programme

In 2018, St Patrick's Mental Health Services (SPMHS) launched and facilitated a pilot International Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Programme.

This programme involves four nurses and four doctors working in mental health in hospitals across China coming over to Ireland for three month periods to observe practices in SPMHS, which can then inform their practice in China. A total of three CPD programmes ran in 2018, commencing in January and finishing in December, with extremely positive feedback received: 13 doctors and 10 nurses took part in all during 2018, and a number of workshops were also facilitated for Chinese senior health leaders. The programme will run until the end of 2019, when it will be reviewed at the end of its pilot.
