Webinar: Treating 'Doctor-patients' - Tips and Traps

CPD Activity - 2 Points

Doctors face unique barriers to accessing health care and it's well recognised that wiithout their own GP, doctors are more likely to self-diagnose, self-treat and self-prescribe, which can lead to poorer health outcomes.

It's not all bad news though, doctors can learn a specific skillset that helps them treat other doctors more effectively.

During this webinar you'll gain insight into supporting doctor health and wellbeing, as we cover:
- the key health risks and health seeking behaviour of doctors
- strategies for reducing the barriers to accessing health care for doctor-patients
- improving the quality and outcomes of consultations with 'doctor-patients'.
