Without a mental health nursing background, it can be intimidating and confronting when faced with an acute mental health presentation in the general practice setting. Understanding how to triage, assess, engage, converse with and support a patient suffering an acute crisis is vital when you, as the practice nurse, are the first point of call. 

Relevance to General Practice

The GPCE offers GP delegates over 50 topic choices over three days. The subjects span many therapeutic areas allowing GPs to self-select the topics of most interest to the individual and their practice.

Learning outcomes
  • Assess patients who present with acute mental health presentations
  • Triage, engage and support acute mental health patients to ensure well-being and safety
  • Coordinate with a multidisciplinary team to provide ongoing support for mental health patients
