Live hosted dates 2021

  • Thursday 17th June
  • Friday 9th July
  • Wednesday 8th September

This season, we’ll be covering a wide range of key primary care topics including: 

  • 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 and the important role of cardiac rehab. 
  • Atrial fibrillation: we hope to bring you the new NICE guidance as soon as the draft is confirmed (we are sat on the edge of our seat holding the front page) 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.
  • 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. 
  • Types of diabetes: do you know your MODY from your LADA? Hint: they aren’t electric cars! We spill all. 
  • 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.
  • Lung cancer screening and pulmonary nodules: what should we expect as this rolls out and (how) should we manage and communicate with people found to have lung nodules?
  • Long-COVID: we explore what we know - and just as importantly what we don’t, and how we can best listen to and support people now. 
  • Prescribing updates: including ensuring all patients on long-term steroids who have emergency cards, know the sick-day rules.  

All this and much, much more from funny turns in children; to anosmia, epididymo-orchitis and alopecia; and why how ‘familiar’ you are with your local farm animals may influence your prescribing decisions around antibiotics!

Mental Health Update Together Live Hosted Online Event Dates

  • Thursday 10th June 2021

Mental Health Update Together events combine the best of digital teaching with live interactivity, and are packed with engaging content that delivers learning – with varied, dynamic teaching to make the learning stick and help you get it into practice. Just like our face-to-face courses, you’ll earn 6 CPD points for attending and get lots of helpful resources to keep learning the going.

What’s covered?

  • The ‘mental health condition families’ - looking at them in a new way.
  • How to navigate different diagnostic options - and more importantly, how to explain these with a narrative that helps patients to get better.
  • 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.

MSK & Chronic Pain Together Live Hosted Online Event Dates

Thursday 25th November 2021

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 it 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!
