This season, we will cover big updates in the management of long term conditions. Highlights include:

  • Acute coronary syndrome: new NICE guidance on diagnosis and management, how “S.A.B.A” can help us remember the drugs we need to consider in secondary prevention. Hypertension: Why we need to remember the 3T’s , how to choose and uptitrate therapy.
  • Atrial fibrillation (available from end May 2021): we will you the new NICE guidance and talk about the key management decisions - to anticoagulate or not to anticoagulate? (quick answer is yes for most - or rather, a shared decision incorporating risk scores - one of which may be new to you!). We will also tackle other important questions, like rate v rhythm control, which anticoagulant and much more.
  • Respiratory disease: a round-up of the latest in COPD, asthma and venous thromboembolism.
  • Diabetes: The gliflozins: they’re everywhere – we look at the guidance and evidence for their role in heart failure (yes, you read that right!) and where they fit now in the management of type 2 diabetes, given the growing date on impact on important outcomes. We also offer a framework for choosing drugs and consider the different types of diabetes: do you know your MODY from your LADA? Hint: they aren’t electric cars! We spill all.
  • Early cancer diagnosis: how we can work together as a primary care team to spot those “missing” cancers as soon as possible.
  • Interpreting results: FIT testing and why we are going to be doing a LOT of it: we’ll share a change in bowel habit GEMS, which pulls together the latest research, evidence and guidelines - when to do a FIT test (clue: nearly ALWAYS!), and how and when to use faecal calprotectin. We will also cover the nuts and bolts of thyroid disease.

All this and much more including some dermatology, steroid emergency cards, perinatal mental health and some tips on how we can look after ourselves during these tricky times.

What’s covered?

Right now, it may feel like all our tools for managing pain are being thrown out at the same time as waiting lists are growing, this course aims to give you a whole new set of tools and revitalise your enjoyment of caring for patients with long term MSK conditions and chronic pain (yes really, we promise!). To do this we will:

  • Share the science behind chronic pain and why if can only be in the brain.
  • Explain how we can use this knowledge to reach a greater understanding and partnership with patients.
  • Show you some skills to assess pain using a full range of biopsychosocial tools and how you can translate this assessment into supporting patients with self-care (yes, that’s right you don’t have to do all of this!).
  • Build skills around promoting health behaviour change and patient activation. 
  • Look at the nitty gritty of the “bad boy” drugs opiates and gabapentinoids and how, when and whether we should be deprescribing.
  • Amongst other nuggets, cover the MSK big three: back pain, osteoarthritis and inflammatory arthritis to make sure you are bang up to date and have lots of ideas to take back to the practice.
  • Give you a reference source in the handbook that covers all things MSK!

  • Therapies and drug dilemmas: we'll cover everything from psychological and talking therapy, to drug-based treatments and self-care and promoting physical health.
  • Creating new narratives: for a range of mental health disorders we consider how could we describe it to help patients understand their experience? How does someone with this condition think, feel and behave? For many patients, this is a key first step in management. Bread and butter conditions like depression and anxiety - focusing on practical skills we can use with patients, promoting self-care, great resources you can share and pitfalls to avoid.  
  • Strategies for common challenges like repeat attenders and personality disorder.
  • ‘Microskills’ like behavioural activation, problem solving and self-compassion that you can start using with patients the next day!
  • The ‘risky’ stuff: risk assessment, mental health ‘emergencies’ and the impact of addiction. Special groups including children and the perinatal period.
  • Well-being of health professionals and how we can look after ourselves.
