Event description

Description

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommends annual physical health checks for people with serious mental illness (SMI). Evidence shows that people with SMI die up to twenty years younger than the average population. Preventable cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the major cause of death, along with endocrine disease and respiratory failure. Evidence also suggests that these individuals receive a lesser standard of health promotion and physical health care and despite national awareness and guidelines early mortality rates have not improved.

The session will be a good practice sharing event to support primary care teams with the management of physical health in patients with mental health conditions. We will:

Explore why this co-hort of patients experience side effects, gain weight and die prematurely

  • Look at progress on implementation of annual physical health checks for people with SMI in Y&H and how we compare
  • Share a case study and good practice tools developed to equip you undertake annual physical health checks with optimum effectiveness and efficiency
  • Opportunity for Q&A

This event is open to ALL primary care teams in the Yorkshire and the Humber region.

*A certificate of attendance will be provided *
