About the course

The physical health of people with chronic mental illness is often poor, and there has been a recent emphasis on enhanced medical care in psychiatric settings. Similarly, in physical healthcare settings, treatment of medical conditions is frequently complicated by psychiatric comorbidity.

This course aims to provide psychiatric medical and nursing professionals with an update on the latest guidelines in assessment and management of common physical health complaints reported in patients with severe mental illness. It addresses the challenge of treating patients with comorbid physical and mental illness, so that you will have the confidence to provide more holistic care to your patients.

The course is split into two stand-alone days, which can be attended in isolation. Day One focuses on cardiac, metabolic, and respiratory complaints whilst day two, focuses on renal, neurological, haematological, and gastrointestinal complaints.
