Primary care, Older Persons and Mental Health

Date: Wednesday 22 July 2020
Time: 7.15pm – 8.30pm

Through a case-based discussion, an interdisciplinary panel of clinical experts will explore the relationship and interplay between ageing related issues, including (but not limited to); mental and physical health, grief, loss and social isolation.

Register now to explore the challenges, merits and opportunities of evidence-based approaches deemed most effective in treating and supporting older people with mental and physical health and/or psychosocial issues. By outlining the roles of different disciplines in treating and supporting older people, the webinar aims to ensure that referrals are better targeted, thereby improving consumer outcomes.

31 Australian Primary Health Networks partnered with MHPN to produce this webinar, which is as part of a national initiative that will see a further two webinars broadcast over the next year.

The interdisciplinary panel of subject matter experts includes: Mr Chris Hall (Psychologist), Dr Rod McKay (Psychiatrist) and Professor Susan Kurrle (Geriatrician), with Dr Stephen Ginsborg (General Practitioner) as the facilitator.
