Location: RCOG
Programme: BSPOGA Training Day - March 2017.pdf


Joint RCOG/BSPOGA meeting

Overview

There is growing awareness of the importance of a holistic approach to health care delivery. This approach looks beyond the pathophysiological basis of illness and takes cognisance of broader issues such as the the psychosocial determinants of health and illness and the impact of care provider behaviour on health outcomes. In contemporary practice, all health professionals should be competent in providing tailored information to individual service users, developing a relationship of trust with them, enhancing their healthcare experience and optimizing health outcomes. Unfortunately reviews such as the Francis Report and Berwick Review show that this is often not achieved. The aim of this Training Day, focused on skills and resources rather than theoretical underpinnings, is to assist health professionals (of all specialisms and all cadres) to deliver person-centred care.

  • SAS Doctors
  • Midwives and nurses, including tutors/lecturers
  • Allied health professionals, including tutors/lecturers
  • General practitioners

Learning objectives

  • Apply a biopsychosocial approach to the delivery of health care
  • Employ communication and consultation skills in engaging service users and influencing their health behaviour
  • Identify and use a variety of available resources and guidelines for providing person-centred care
  • Produce patient information materials that meet national quality standards
  • Confidently apply robust methods to assess service users’ experience
  • Find a positive way forward when faced with a challenging (‘difficult’) consultation
