On-demand recorded 29 Jan 2020

This webinar looks at developing initial treatment approaches to presenting symptoms, processes for effective co-management with specialists, and the elements of effective treatment approaches for patients presenting with alcohol and benzodiazepine use in the context of anxiety, depressive symptoms or sleep disturbance.

Acknowledging these problems can be difficult to manage, but also that GPs are uniquely placed to be able to understand the complexities of patient issues, and to work effectively with patients over time, co-management with D&A and mental Health Specialists will be explored including a focus on ways to reduce harm from polypharmacy in some different patient groups.
