Hands up if you ever had a patient walk through your door who was suffering with a physical symptom, yet you couldn't find a medical basis for it? No matter how many investigations, blood tests or specialist referrals you made?! Hands down, you are in very good company! In fact, research tells us that up to 45% of primary care appointments, 50% of new visits to hospital and 1/6 emerge visits involve symptoms that are medically unexplained. Often, your medical training does not teach you how to assess or manage these conditions adequately. Having these frequent and frustrating appointments can leave both patient and clinician feeling irritated, hopeless and very stuck! If this is you, then this course can help.
