Supporting Good Mental Health in your Patients with Long-term Conditions
Feeling stressed, frustrated and overwhelmed is common for both patients and frontline staff managing long-term and persistent conditions. This funded training will support you in thinking about links between physical and mental health with these patients, providing tools and techniques that can be used in brief consultations in a way that is realistic and practical.
We will discuss ways to talk straightforwardly with patients about how their long-term condition might affect their mood. We will also consider how to position a potential referral for psychological support in a way that is acceptable to patients.
