It is a great privilege to have been involved in two recent psychiatric publications.
The first publication is a meta-analysis of antipsychotic side-effects with Dr Ozbilen and Professor Adams in the Journal of Current Medicinal Chemistry titled ‘Anticholinergic effects of oral antipsychotic drugs of typicals versus atypicals over medium- and long-term: systematic review and meta-analysis‘ (see here and here). The main finding here was a statistically significant increase in blurred vision in typical versus atypical antipsychotics from the studies identified (n=27328 participants).
The second paper is a debate with Dr Robert Fung about personality disorder diagnoses in older adults in ‘Old Age Psychiatrist’ titled ‘Debate: Are We Overlooking Personality Disorder in Older People?‘ . This article is in a publication specifically for members of the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
The publications are testimony to the hard work, knowledge and insight of my colleagues and it has been a pleasure to have played a part in these publications.
