I have contacted Prof Wessely, today, and asked if he would clarify whether the “Nice” as given in the title of his presentation by the event organisers refers to “NICE” as in “National Institute for Clinical Excellence”.
I have also asked whether a summary, transcript or podcast of Prof Wessely’s talk is going to be made available by him or by the event organisers (podcasts of some previous events listed on this site do appear to be available). I have been unable to find a summary of Prof Wessely’s presentation on the website. I will update when I have received a response or if a podcast is made available on the event organiser’s website.
With acknowledgement to the ONE CLICK list for the heads up on this somewhat cryptically titled presentation:
