Introduction 

Do you Sometimes Struggle with Patient Conversations ?

This session is for GPs, ANPs, Practice Nurses and any other clinicians who regularly discuss long term conditions and their effects with patients.

It’s hard talking to patients about their LTCs. How frank should you be? Should you mention the future?

Join this webinar to talk through this tough challenge and take some solutions back to the practice with you

Aims

During this session we will discuss how you might address in the most supportive way:

  • that the diagnosis is a lifelong progressive condition.
  • expectations regarding their short and long term futures
  • what will happen when symptoms worsen

Objectives 

You will leave the webinar feeling more confident & prepared for the next time this situation arises

Please note this session will NOT be recorded

Trainer

Bev has an enviable mix of theory and practice when it comes to her role as both health care professional and clinical lecturer. She is a nurse practitioner/ prescriber working in a rural practice in the Cotswolds, where she is the clinical lead for COPD, diabetes, atrial fibrillation, stroke, hypertension and smoking cessation. She is a visiting lecturer on the MSc in preventive cardiology at Imperial College London. Bev writes extensively for the nursing press and sits on several editorial boards. She has a keen interest in the patients' experience of health care and her dissertation for her MSc examined the concept of what patients themselves want from a consultation, comparing this to the way in which health care is currently delivered in general practice.
