PTSD has many faces send many comorbidities. Sometimes, in primary care it can be very difficult to see that PTSD is part of the picture.
In this session, Dr Kathy O’Grady will talk to Dr Jan Orman about the many ways PTSD can slip under the radar and some ways in which we can ensure that it doesn’t for patients.
Mental health is the number one reason people see their GPs*, yet GPs are time poor and wait times to see psychologists are long. The need for mental health care is growing faster than specialised support and services are, leaving a gap in patient care.
This webinar series aims to provide GPs and other health professionals with skills to ‘fill the gap’ in providing mental health care to their patients using a range of brief interventions. Each webinar will be a discussion about the specific intervention and tips on how to use it effectively with your patients.
