In this unit students will learn to establish, develop, promote and model effective collaborations and communication pathways in psychiatry making use of the CanMEDS domains of Collaborator and Communicator. Students will explore settings and populations of people where breakdowns in these domains are a higher risk. Issues affecting Aboriginal people, people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds, and those from rural and remote populations will be addressed. Students will explore personality and organic disorders through these domains, completing the unit with an interprofessional exploration of opportunities to improve the physical health for people living with mental illness. Students have access to a complementary workshop focused on the needs of those where past trauma has a lasting effect.
