Managing Grief and the GPs Role
CPD Activity - 2 points
Free Online Webinar
The way grief manifests can differ dramatically from patient to patient. It is therefore vital that practitioners be aware of the variable presentations of normal grief, and are able to identify pathological grief. This webinar will provide strategies to support grieving patients, helping to alleviate the physical and mental health issues that result from complicated, severe and prolonged grief.
The end of a life touches us all at some point in life - GPs can offer support to people who are facing mortality or dealing with grief. RACGP are proud to present Associate Professor Lauren Breen, School of Psychology Curtin University. Lauren will discuss not only how to improve our capacity to respond to distress, but also offer informative and practical support.
