Abstract/Book Review

Only 33 percent of London trainees surveyed felt that their current training program enabled them to achieve curriculum requirements in pediatrics or child and adolescent mental health. Child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) are increasingly stretched, raising referral thresholds, and making the need for working closer together across disciplines paramount. A working group of pediatric and psychiatry trainees developed the concept of Thinking Together to tackle this training gap. The scheme involves pairing pediatric and CAMHS trainees to share in each other's clinical encounters to foster a joint way of learning and working together, while fulfilling curriculum competencies that are otherwise difficult to achieve.
