Webinar: Primary care, older persons and mental health
This free webinar is one of three Mental Health Professionals Network (MHPN) webinars produced on behalf of a national collaboration between the 31 Australian Primary Health Networks.
Through a case based discussion, an interdisciplinary panel of clinical experts will discuss the relationship and interplay between ageing related issues, including but not limited to; mental and physical health, grief, loss and social isolation.
The webinar will describe the challenges, merits and opportunities of evidence-based approaches deemed most effective in treating and supporting older people with mental and physical health, or psycho-social 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.
When: Wednesday 22 July, 7:15pm – 8:30pm
