An individual’s mental and physical health are inextricably linked. However, healthcare services are often focused on one or the other.
This interactive course explains how physical and mental health commonly influence each other, and helps all healthcare professionals recognise the additional health needs of their patients and identify appropriate services to refer them to.
It includes ‘patient journey’ case studies to demonstrate how health problems often require coordinated treatment across the healthcare system, with opportunities to practice identifying healthcare priorities in different clinical contexts. There are also examples of good clinical practice to inspire discussion around how we can further improve services.
