At the end of November PhD student Emma Radclyffe presented her ongoing research as part of the Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust’s seminar series. Emma’s research focuses on the diagnosis of borderline personality disorder in bipolar disorder. Emma was delighted to be able to present some of the very early findings from her ongoing interviews with BDRN participants and to have a chance to discuss the potential impact of her research with clinicians. The presentation was well-received and prompted some interesting discussions with the healthcare professionals present. Emma would like to thank Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust for the opportunity to present her work.
