The Victoria Clinic invites General Practitioners to attend this live, online and interactive meeting presented by Dr Gregor Schultz and chaired by Dr Brian Ferry.
Activity ID 210946.
This update has been developed with a GP focus in order to expand the understanding of early diagnostic and management strategies for patients presenting with signs and symptoms of trauma related mental illness. Psychiatrists with extensive experience in this subspecialty will review and examine evidence, patient case studies and the available diagnostic and treatment options available to General Practitioners and their patients. This activity will guide GPs through the early identification of trauma related mental illness and the most current recommendations for pharmacological and psychological intervention.
Through this activity, GP's will be able to:
1. Discuss risk factors that may contribute to the development of trauma related mental illness and identify individuals at greater risk
2. Explain the use of screening processes and current recommendations and, how these can support the comprehensive initial evaluation of a patient’s symptoms
3. Develop a communication plan that engages patients and creates an environment where they are more likely to disclose details of their trauma and symptoms
4. Describe the appropriateness of initial pharmacotherapy and subsequent referral for psychological therapy
