Webinar 1 Dec, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM (AWST)

The way grief and bereavement manifests can differ dramatically from patient to patient. It is therefore vital that GPs are aware of the variable presentations of normal grief and are able to identify pathological grief.

This webinar will provide strategies to support grieving patients, helping to alleviate the physical and mental health issues that result from complicated, severe and prolonged grief.

Presented by Associate Professor Lauren Breen, School of Psychology, Curtin University, this webinar explores strategies to help GPs respond to distress, providing informative and practical support.

Learning outcomes
