THE GILLIAN PAGE PRIZE 2009

The Gillian Page Prize was established by Mr John Page, a consultant ENT surgeon and
his wife to commemorate their daughter Gillian, in order to promote progress in
adolescent psychiatry. The prize may take the form of a research project, a review of
a particular topic or a study of some clinical innovation.        A project involving
collaboration between workers, whether psychiatrists or in any other discipline, may
be submitted, but the prize may be shared between no more than two eligible
psychiatrists. In each instance where collaborative work is submitted there should be
a clear indication of which parts were undertaken by each worker and a statement to
this effect should be signed by all collaborating workers.

Prize: £500

Frequency: Biennially – next award 2009

Eligible: SHOs, SpRs, specialty trainees STs 1 – 6 below the rank of consultant
psychiatrist or equivalent at the time the entry is submitted to the College.

Where presented: Faculty residential meeting, usually held in September each year

Regulations:

I.    In the first instance applicants should submit – by email - a title and short
      protocol of their project for approval by the examiners at an early stage to
      ensure that it falls within the scope of the award.

II.   Thereafter applicants should submit their entry – by email - in the form of an
      essay or dissertation, with accompanying tables and figures. A collection of
      articles will not be accepted as a submission for the prize, but previously
      published work may be included in the submission if it is incorporated in the
      essay or dissertation.

III. Recipients of the prize may be invited to present a report at the Faculty
     residential meeting held each autumn. The Faculty will nominate the examiners

THE MARGARET DAVENPORT POSTER PRIZE 2010

The family of the late Dr Margaret Davenport have made a bequest to the Faculty of
Child and Adolescent Psychiatry to establish a prize in her memory.

Dr Davenport began her psychiatric training at University Hospital, South Manchester
at the late age of 47, after gaining experience in general practice in Cheltenham as a
Clinical Medical Officer in Manchester, and following a career break for family
commitments. On consultant appointment Dr Davenport became the driving force
behind the development of an enviable family therapy service with a full multi-
disciplinary team and a purpose-built day unit. She was an expert in the field of child
abuse and child sexual abuse, with a wide experience of assessment and treatment,
and continued her involvement in family therapy training into her 70s.

Prize: £100. The winner of this prize will be included as a guest at           the Faculty
annual residential meeting and conference dinner, and the conference           fee will be
waived. Allowable costs for travel and accommodation will also be              reimbursed
retrospectively on presentation of original tickets and receipts for            all related
expenditure, together with a completed members’ expenses claim form.

Frequency: Annually

Eligible: SpRs/specialty trainees STs 4 – 6 or newly appointed consultants in child
and adolescent psychiatry (including those on joint faculty training programmes with
other faculties) as well as those who are within six months of having obtained their
CCT by 18th April of the year in which the residential meeting occurs.

Where presented: Faculty residential meeting, usually held in September each year

Regulations:

I.    An SpR/specialty trainee ST 4 – 6 or newly appointed consultant can only win the
      prize once during their career.

II.   The   criteria employed to judge the prize will be as follows:
      a)     the quality of the abstract of the presentation
      b)     the degree of innovation within the project
      c)     the extent to which the methodology is sound and appropriate for the type
             of project submitted.

III. The prize is judged in two stages. First, the Faculty academic sub-group rate all
     eligible abstracts submitted to produce a shortlist of six. Second, an adjudication
     panel of three, selected by the Faculty Executive, assess the shortlist against the
     same criteria, adding only the quality of the presentation at the meeting (taking
     into account differences between poster, short paper, workshop and other
     presentation styles). The final choice depends on both the rating achieved
     during stage one, as well as the final standard at the meeting.

IV.   The spirit of the prize is to recognise the excellence of the trainees’ work. There
      can be difficulties when the trainee is part of a collaborative effort. The prize is
      intended for those who have taken the lead in the work that has resulted in the
      presentation, as well as for the presentation itself. Sometimes this aspect is

      hard to evaluate by the prize judges. Hence it is the responsibility of seniors
      within collaborative groups to be prepared to attest to this criterion, if it is in
      doubt.

BURSARIES

Introduction:

The Faculty of the Psychiatry of Learning Disability has established an educational
bursary fund, currently £2000.00 per annum. The fund supports SpRs/specialty
trainees STs 4 – 6 and Staff grade/Associate specialist doctors working in the field of
learning disability who have been unable to obtain alternative, or sufficient, funding to
attend College meetings and other appropriate educational activities.        The fund is
also open to psychiatry colleagues in developing countries to support their attendance
at College meetings.

SPRs/specialty trainees STs 4 – 6 and Staff grades/Associate specialists may apply for
a bursary of up to £200.00 to attend any educational event that is consistent with
their educational objectives or PDP and has the approval of their training programme
director (for SpRs/STs 4 - 6) or medical director (for Staff grades/Associate
specialists).

Psychiatrists in the field of learning disability from developing countries may apply in
good time for a bursary of up to £500.00 to assist in attending either the Faculty’s
annual spring or residential meeting, usually held in April and October respectively, or
the College Annual Meeting (usually held in June/July). No more than two such grants
should be made per year (subject to annual review).

Application for a bursary grant:

      1a) Specialty trainees (SpRs, STs 4 – 6) who are having difficulty securing
           sufficient funding to attend a Faculty, College or other educational meeting
           should, in the first instance, discuss this with their placement supervisor
           and training programme director to ensure that attendance at the meeting
           is a training priority at that time and that all possible sources of funding
           have been explored.

      b)    If it is decided that application for a bursary grant should be made, the
            training programme director should apply by email letter to the Faculty
            Finance Officer. The application should state the size of the grant required
            (up to £200.00) and the reasons why full funding has not been obtained
            elsewhere.

      2a) Staff grades/Associate specialists encountering difficulties in obtaining
          funding should discuss this with their clinical/medical director.

      a)      If it is decided that application for a bursary grant should be made, the
            clinical/medical director should apply by email letter to the Faculty Finance
            Officer. The application should state the size of the grant required (up to
            £200.00) and the reasons why full funding has not been obtained
            elsewhere.

      3a) Psychiatrists from developing countries:
          Applications should be made by email letter to the Faculty Finance Officer
          accompanied, wherever possible, by a letter of support from the appropriate
          medical director/postgraduate training organiser.

In all cases, the Faculty Chair together with the Vice-Chair, Academic Secretary and
Finance Officer will jointly decide, on behalf of the Faculty, whether a bursary should
be granted.

The bursary fund and applications received, granted or refused will be reviewed
annually by the Faculty Executive and the size of the bursary fund adjusted to meet
demand.     Where there appear to be significant local funding difficulties, the
appropriate regional/devolved administration representatives may take action to
address this with NHS providers and deaneries.

   Executive members will make the award against an agreed set of criteria.

       FACULTY OF REHABILITATION AND SOCIAL PSYCHIATRY


THE DOUGLAS BENNETT PRIZE 2010

There is no set topic, but the      prize given in Douglas Bennett’s name will use his
guiding values in adjudication.     He valued creativity with practicality, simplicity with
illumination, applicability with    humanity, and had an eye for clear and rigorous
methodology. This is a high         and demanding standard, which he applied to his
research and clinical work alike,   and for which he is honoured with this prize.

Prize: The monetary value of the prize would be determined by the Faculty
Executive, but would be no less than £200.

Frequency: Annually

Eligible: Psychiatrists in training, including Staff and Associate Specialists or within
two years of consultant appointment.

Where presented: Faculty residential meeting, usually held in November

Regulations:

I.     The papers will be judged by a panel of three members, to include the Faculty
       Chair, Academic Secretary and one other, to be called the Prize Adjudication
       Committee, and nominated at the Faculty business meeting in the preceding
       year.

II.    Applicants for the prize are required to submit a paper – by email - (maximum
       length 2000 words) on one of the following:
       a)   Original work to investigate hypotheses relevant to the care of individuals
            suffering from severe mental illness
       b) Description, rationale and evaluation of innovative service for people with
            severe mental disorder
       c)   Critical review/meta-analysis of existing range of treatment interventions,
            or service evaluations
       d) Critical appraisal of the impact of contemporary health or social care policy
            affecting the care of people with severe mental disorder.

III.    No more than three papers will be shortlisted for presentation by the Prize
        Adjudication Committee. The shortlist of candidates will then be included in the
        final programme for the Prize Special Session at the Faculty’s residential
        meeting the following November.

IV.    The target audience is the Faculty membership, but it is expected that the
       winning paper would be submitted for peer-reviewed publication, and would
       therefore be likely to appeal to a wider professional audience.

V.     The prizewinner will be invited to produce an abbreviated version of their paper,
       500 words, for inclusion in the Faculty newsletter, and will be invited by the
       Academic Secretary to give a brief presentation at the following year’s College
       Annual Meeting within the Faculty’s programme stream.
