'Mental bites' webinar series - Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
On-demand recorded 3 Nov 2022
‘Mental bites’ is a new lunch-time series with bite-sized information presented by the Psychological Medicine Specific Interest group. GPs are aware of mental health assessments, diagnosis, and management, but this series will be an opportunity to learn more about how to do the work - the micro-skills of engagement, forming safe and effective therapeutic alliances and communication with patients. This webinar will involve a discussion about the GPs role in managing patients with ADHD. This webinar will highlight a practical skill the GP can take away from the session to use whilst communicating with patients as well as Q&A with Chair, ADHD, ASD and Neurodiversity Specific Interest Group – Dr John Kramer.
