Maintaining effectiveness, preventing burnout

Some 120 East Riding GPs took a step back from clinical practice to attend a HYMS primary care short course entitled "Maintaining effectiveness, preventing burnout."

The event was commissioned by East Riding Clinical Commissioning Group as part of its Protected Time for Learning programme, in which all practices in the area close for an afternoon to support educational activity.

An introductory session was led by Professor Ian Watt, Head of the HYMS Centre for Health and Population Sciences, with subsequent workshops available on Practitioner Health, Mindfulness, Time Banks and Demand Management.

Alongside other events, this means 360 GPs in the region have attended a HYMS course in the past four weeks.

Other upcoming events for primary care clinicians include: 

  • Managing medically unexplained symptoms in primary care - a practical guide, 20 June 2014, 9am-5pm 
  • Confidence in kidney care, 24 June 2014, 2pm-5pm, Tickton Grange, Beverley
  • Motivational interviewing for long term conditions and lifestyle-related health problems, 27 June 2014, 10am-4pm, Fenestra Conference Centre, Scunthorpe
