We don’t need to tell you that mental health conditions are very, very common and impact in some way on so many of our consultations. In fact, a 2018 MIND survey of 1000 GPs found that 40% of their appointments involve mental health issues. And many of us believe that number’s rising.
Some days we secretly dread patients with complex mental health issues walking through the door because we worry whether we can give them the help they need, without running hopelessly late. And for some conditions, we don’t always know what the best course of action is.
We've thought long and hard about what makes supporting patients with mental health problems difficult, and how we can help you navigate this challenging area. The Mental Health Update course has been designed to give you a range of tools and skills you can use in a 10-minute consultation window, and to teach you how to adopt a structured approach to these consultations.
As with all our Red Whale courses, the format will be lecture-based, interspersed with case scenarios and Q&A sessions. The sessions will be informal, interactive and light-hearted. You’ll earn 6 CPD credits from attending our one-day course, helping you meet the requirements for appraisals and revalidation.
On the day, registration starts at 9.00am and the course runs from 9.30 to 5.00pm. The course fee includes refreshments throughout the day and a buffet lunch.
