Trevor Hill, research statistician at the University of Nottingham, won best poster prize at the Trent Regional SAPC conference in Lincoln on 25 March, for his poster 'Antidepressants and risk of epilepsy and seizures'.

The conference covered a broad range of themes from childhood injuries, diabetes to alcohol misuse, continuity of care and the experiences of older people who access emergency services. Trevor found the keynote address by Professor Jan de Measeneer on the management of multi-morbidity particularly interesting. View the poster here.

The SPCR funded study, led by Dr Carol Coupland, found that a statistically significant association could be found between all antidepressant drug classes and the risk of epilepsy/seizures. Co-researchers at the University of Nottingham's School of Medicine included Professor Richard Morriss, Professor Antony Arthur, Dr Michael Moore and Professor Julia Hippisley-Cox.
