Poster Presentations

Presenting research in parliament


Third year MB ChB student Ciara Doyle was invited by Warwick to take part in the annual ‘Posters in Parliament’ event in March 2019, where students from universities across the country presented their work for MPs and other officials to see and discuss. In her poster, Ciara presented the work she had done for her Student Selected Component (SSC) module last year, which found that NHS multidisciplinary teams need more support in optimising certain mental health treatment options.

Royal College of Psychiatrists International Conference- Poster Award


Charlotte Richardson was selected for an oral presentation of her SSC project “Standardised mortality rates among residents at Hatton asylum in the pre-antipsychotic era” at the Royal College of Psychiatrists International Conference. This unusual SSC project involved analysis of historical documents and calculation of standardised mortality rates for residents of Hatton asylum in the Victorian era. Findings showed that SMR for patients with severe mental illness has not improved compared with the general population since the introduction of anti-psychotic drugs, raising questions about whether the enlightened social aspects of care at Hatton should be revisited in the modern era.

Commenting on the paper, Professor Lesley Robets, Pro Dean Education, said:

This paper highlights some of the deeper issues which underpin the academic achievement gap and it is only through such understanding that we can tackle such factors, which is a clear priority for us. What makes me particularly pleased in this output is the fact that it is co-authored by a student-staff research team – working together in this way is essential for us to fully embrace this subject and start moving forwards together to bring about change. I congratulate all the authors.
