GPs workshop on engaging and supporting families
Family relationships can influence adherence with treatment and contribute to a person’s recovery in relation to both mental health and physical health issues. If a person has a heart attack this can have a great effect on family members, impacting on their physical and psychological wellbeing.
GPs are in the unique position of being able to develop longstanding relationships with families.
The Meriden Family Programme is developing a skills-based half-day workshop for GPs, aimed at helping them to identify the impact an individual health issue can have on the whole family and strategies for engaging and supporting them.
We are working with GPs to develop the content and would welcome any ideas or thoughts about issues you feel should be included.
Please contact Chris Mansell via email firstname.lastname@example.org to share your views.
More information about this workshop will be provided in a future edition of GP Matters.
