Anxiety Disorders Course Online: The Treatments

  • : Online

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 introduce you to the latest evidence-based treatments for anxiety disorders.

Relevance to General Practice

This course is for GPs who are dealing with patients or clients with anxiety disorders, and who do not have a systematic approach to solving their anxiety problems.
This online course is suitable for health professionals as well as trainees and students in the disciplines of health and medicine who have had some background knowledge about anxiety disorders.
