About the course

This one-day, online simulation-based course (Learning Together) will focus on peer learning for GP and higher psychiatry trainees in primary care. Each course will have up to 12 participants.

Learning Together Psychiatry is a training model that provides GP and psychiatry registrars the opportunity to engage in peer learning: each can learn from the knowledge, skills and attitude of the other, and is available across London in partnership with the Health Education England School of Psychiatry.

It encompasses inter-specialty training days and joint clinics delivered by pairs of trainee GPs and psychiatrists. These clinics will be hosted in general practice and provide an opportunity for these trainee pairs to learn together and from one another in this setting.

Why choose Maudsley Simulation?
Maudsley Simulation have extensive experience in delivering mental health simulation training and have recently begun to deliver digital simulation. We have worked in collaboration with the Learning Together leads for psychiatry and GP to develop this unique simulation course. Each course will have up to 12 participants with a balance between both disciplines.

Course programme

Participants will encounter a series of simulated patients in a primary care setting. Each simulation scenario will be followed by a structured debrief facilitated by our experienced simulation faculty. The debrief serves as a psychologically safe space where all participants explore and reflect on the various clinical themes, dynamics and any other issues that the scenario generates.

Throughout the day, a key emphasis will be placed on themes at the interface of primary care and mental healthcare in relation to inter-professional working with a strong focus on non-technical (i.e., human factor) skills.

Learning objectives

What you will learn from taking this course:

  • For GP trainees: To improve knowledge in the diagnosis and management of mental health problems
  • For psychiatry trainees: To improve knowledge in the management of physical health problems, to understand care of mental health issues in primary care, to appreciate organisation and management of primary care practices
  • To create better understanding of care systems, services, patient journeys and assist in the vertical integration of care
  • To explore the dynamics within a consultation and the factors that might impact on them
  • To enhance non-technical skills e.g., team working and communication with colleagues

Brilliant session - relevant to GP, well chaired, excellent case discussion between organisers and colleagues. Would definitely recommend this course to colleagues!
Too much talking to simulation. One hour to talk per case was too much

Excellent learning day with realistic but challenging cases and well facilitated
