Here we acknowledge that practitioners' states of mind and ability to manage stress in their busy lives can impact of their own health, happiness and ability to function at work.
Based on a clinical case study, this webinar explores the role that e-mental health programs can play in the lives of doctors at risk of developing problems with their mental health, and those who are already suffering from mild to moderate common mental health problems.
The webinar series examines some of the online mental health treatment programs that GPs need to know about, focusing on evidence-based programs that have been developed in Australia. The evidence around the efficacy and usefulness of different programs will be discussed along with practical aspects of using the programs. We will use a case example to help explore the range of reliable Australian online resources available to help doctors decrease their own vulnerability to stress and manage distress when it arises. GPs will learn how this and other e-Mental Health programs can be used to enhance their own mental health and that of their patients.
GPs and GP registrars who are interested in self care as well as the care of their patients.
Participants in each webinar are eligible for 2 QI&CPD Points and 2 Core ACRRM Points.
