Expert Speaker – Camilla Sowerby

CPPE Tutor – Ian Dunphy

This mental health and wellbeing study day focuses on common mental health conditions seen in primary care. It will enable you to support patients with a mental health condition to optimise their medicines. The study day will combine principles of team-based learning (TBL) to facilitate networking and discussion whilst consolidating the underpinning knowledge about antidepressants, benzodiazepines and z-hypnotics. Teams will work through simple and more complex case studies to apply knowledge and share best practice

​On completion of all aspects of this learning programme you should be able to:

  • explain how mental health conditions can impact on patients and their carers and the key priorities for maintaining good mental health
  • outline drug and non-drug management for depression
  • apply national guidelines, referral criteria and evidence-informed decision-making on depression to patient care in general practice
  • develop a plan to improve safety and quality for benzodiazepine and z-drugs prescribing in general practice
  • identify strategies for supporting patients to reduce or stop benzodiazepines and z-drugs.​
