This 3 hour course for GPs has been designed to enable participants to:
deepen their understanding of depression,
develop more confidence in creating treatment plans with patients,
understand the science behind non-pharmacological modalities, and
develop more skills to directly help patients within the consultation.
By the end of the course participants will;
Have learned how to engage with depressed patients without “catching” their low mood and anxiety.
Have more ways, within the GP consultation timeframe, of making a difference for the many patients who aren’t simply seeking a prescription.
Have learned how new ideas in neuroscience can inform our work with patients with depression (and many other linked disorders)
Have a clear understanding of how inflammation as a cause of depression actually ties together much of what we already knew.
Have gained language and other skills to make consultations with depressed patients more productive, and (we dare say) enjoyable.
