Description

Supporting People with a Mental Health Condition in Primary Care

KMPT invites you to join us at a series of CPD events for staff working in primary care.

The events are being hosted across Kent and Medway in 2017 and 2018 and are aimed at raising awareness amongst all primary care staff about how to support people with a mental health condition in primary care.

The 8 events, which will take place on the last Wednesday of every month, will cover a wide range of mental health disorders and diagnoses. Each presentation will provide a diagnostic overview, reflect the latest prescribing guidelines from NICE and the Maudsley and give pragmatic advice and coaching to clinical and non-clinical staff about how to manage these presentations in Primary Care.

The sessions will also provide guidance about risk management, giving a framework for GPs to explore Mental Health issues with their patients during appointments in a way that enables them to make an informed decision about whether the risk can be managed in primary care or if a referral to secondary care is needed.

The events will provide an opportunity to promote flow between primary and secondary care and enable us to reflect on how we can put the patient at the heart of process and remove barriers.

Alongside the clinical presentations, senior KMPT staff will attend each event to enable a Q&A session – giving attendees the opportunity to discuss all KMPT services.

The events will be held on the last Wednesday of the month, from October to April. Light refreshments and a buffet will be available from 6.30pm and the presentations will start at 7pm, with a Q&A session and closing remarks concluding by 9.15.
