Working with MUS conditions can be challenging, especially when you are not sure what might be driving the symptoms and your patient is looking for answers. Both patient and clinician can feel frustrated and eventually despondent when the usual investigations and treatments fail to address these distressing conditions.
This three-part experiential course offers some solutions to the above difficulties. You will learn to understand what factors can drive MUS, how you can help patients link MUS to psycho-physiological processes and offer them some basic tools to begin to manage their symptoms.
This course is not like other online courses. Online learning can be a passive experience, offering information and tools but no guidance on how to put them into practise. Our courses are different. We offer an active learning experience. In all our courses you'll find experiential exercises to help you embed your learning and bring your new skills to life immediately.

A skill-building course for healthcare professionals, to help you understand and manage MUS. This course is designed to build your skills and to begin to apply them in real life, with real patients. Whilst you will be given theory to build your knowledge, it is embedding that knowledge into skills that will make the difference in your work with this group.
Working with this complex group can trigger your own emotional system and without awareness of this, stress can build up, confidence can dwindle and burnout can ensue. So in addition to building skills in MUS, we will help to support your emotional growth so that you can begin to feel more empowered, less anxious and more satisfied with what you can achieve.
Through short video modules, you will learn about MUS theory and practice working with MUS cases. Reflective practice, clinical skill building and emotional capacity building will ensure that your active participation brings your learning to life.
