How can doctors be assisted to perform at their best? When doctors are struggling which methods of intervention should be used to improve their performance?  The Royal Society of Medicine  convened a workshop which aimed to inform those with a responsibility for doctors performance about the latest assessment and remediation methods and services available for poorly performing doctors.  Programme researchers made a significant contribution to the agenda with Charlotte Humphrey discussing equality and diversity, Melody Rhydderch addressing which bio pyschosocial factors are associated with performance and Debbie Cohen talking about how to support individuals with behavioural problems.

The conference was held on 9th July 2008 at The Royal Society of Medicine.
