‘An Introduction To Haemotology’
As the popularity of point-of-care testing (POCT) for clozapine patients gains in popularity, there is an increasing awareness of the various different functions our blood performs. ‘An Introduction to Haematology’ aims to give a basic overview of the importance aspects of haematology when managing patients in a Point of Care setting.
‘Point of Care Quality Assessment – All you need to know about UK NEQAS’
Point-of-care testing (POCT) for clozapine patients has been available for many years and is a service that is growing in popularity throughout most of the United Kingdom. However, the essential blood monitoring of patients taking clozapine is usually performed in non-hospital settings by non-scientific staff. This mini-course has been written for Learn It Online by UK NEQAS and is intended to provide additional support to healthcare professionals working in POC clozapine clinics.
The Clozapine Handbook and Maudsley Guidelines are key reference documents for much of the course content. Both books are available to purchase via these links. The Maudsley Guidelines 13th Edition is now available as an App for all operating systems.
Psychogastroenterology for Adults: A Handbook for Mental Health Professionals is the first book to provide mental health professionals with an evidence-based, practical guide for working with patients living with gastrointestinal conditions.

About The Rome Foundation
Improving the lives of people with functional GI disorders
The Rome Foundation is an independent not-for-profit organisation that provides support for activities designed to create scientific data and educational information to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs). Our mission is to improve the lives of people with functional GI disorders.
For over two decades the Rome organisation has sought to legitimise and update our knowledge of the FGIDs. This has been accomplished by bringing together scientists and clinicians from around the world to classify and critically appraise the science of gastrointestinal function and dysfunction. This knowledge permits clinical scientists to make recommendations for diagnosis and treatment that can be applied in research and clinical practice.
The Rome Foundation is committed to the continuous development, legitimisation and preservation of the field of FGIDs through science-based activities. We are inclusive and collaborative, patient-centred, innovative and open to new ideas.
Mental Health and GI Disorders
The Rome Foundation is also creating an internationally-based psychogastroenterology group dedicated to the training, quality improvement or promotion of psychogastroenterology research or practice.
