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.
If you are interested, you can come to our training event on 11th October or we can come to you – just register your interest here: https://taviport.co/IAPT ”
