Anxiety Disorders Course Online: The Foundations

Speciality Classification
General Practice ( GP ) / Family Medicine
23 hrs

Anxiety disorders are common psychiatric conditions with a devastating effect on quality of life that is often underestimated. Unfortunately, anxiety is as misunderstood among patients and health practitioners as it is common. While 14.4% of the Australian population exhibit symptoms of anxiety disorders, only half seek treatment. Of great concern is the fact that 40% of those who do seek treatment receive misguided advice.
The Discipline of Psychiatry at the University of Sydney is rallying around anxiety research and clinical treatment, and has developed this self-paced online course to give you an introduction to anxiety disorders.

Relevance to General Practice

This course is for GPs who are dealing with patients or clients with anxiety disorders, and who can not clearly explain the symptoms and underlying mechanism of anxiety disorders to them.
This online course is suitable for health professionals and trainees and students in the disciplines of health and medicine. Anyone who wishes to learn about anxiety disorders is welcome to participate.
