Recognising and responding to complex trauma

A GP-only forum on how to recognise and respond to patients suffering unresolved complex trauma is being held by the Mental Health Professionals Network.

The online forum, part of the Network’s webinar series, will bring together a panel of experts including psychiatrist Professor Louise Newman, GP Dr David Walker and mental health nurse Iggy Kim, to better equip GPs to diagnose and respond to physical, mental and psychosocial presentations that may indicate unresolved complex trauma.

The webinar aims to give participants an understanding of the prevalence, epidemiology and impact of complex trauma, equip them to diagnose the condition and provide tips and strategies for interdisciplinary collaboration to support patients suffering complex trauma.

In preparation for the webinar, participants will need to read the relevant fact sheet and familiarise themselves with the case study that will be the focus of discussion.

The Government-funded webinar has been accredited by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners for four category 2 points, and accreditation by the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine is pending.

The webinar will be conducted on Monday, 7 April, between 7.45 and 9pm AEST.
