Dear Faculty,

Recruitment has started for the 2020 TIPP course Year 4 undergraduate small group teaching. I’m writing to ask if you would be interested in being a tutor/facilitator for the “Acute Psychosis & Delirium” session being held in Vancouver at the Diamond Health Care Centre (2775 Laurel Street) on Tuesday, February 25, 2020. A total of 16 tutors are needed.

The session will review the appropriate work-up and management of a patient with acute psychosis. This will include:

  • the assessment of risk factors for harm to self or others and assessment of capacity;
  • the interpretation of critical investigations for a patient with psychosis, including appropriate laboratory investigations and diagnostic imaging; and,
  • the design and implementation of an effective management plan for a patient with psychosis.

Each tutor will be assigned a group of approximately 12 students. The related material (i.e. cases, session manuals) will be forthcoming. Please be advised that there may be a tutor prep meeting scheduled in advance of your session, and a confirmation will be sent out in due time. Compensation for the delivery of this session will be offered according to the UBC Clinical Faculty Agreement based on small group activity.

If you are interested or have any questions, please contact Leanne Kim at: by August 30, 2019.
