Course Outline

This one-day inter-professional course is suitable for a range of clinicians involved in the management of patients with mental and physical healthcare co-morbidity in the general hospital and community setting; and the management of medical problems and emergencies in the mental health setting. 

This course is aimed at all hospital and community doctors and nurses. These include trainees (foundation year, core medical, emergency medicine, core psychiatry, GP), hospital nurses (community and mental health) and health care assistants (HCAs). Any health care professionals working with the elderly, undertaking a mental health placement or with an interest in psychiatry would also benefit from this course. Participants will be involved in a series of simulated scenarios using actors and mannequins. Debriefing models are employed to assist participants to learn positively and constructively from the experience.

Learning objectives


After completing this course those attending will:

  • demonstrate improved confidence, knowledge and skills in the management of people with physical and mental health co-morbidity.
  • understand the role non-technical skills (such as team working and leadership) play in the management of people with physical and mental health co-morbidity.
  • demonstrate improved communication and collaboration skills within the multi-disciplinary team.
  • have increased awareness of the challenges that can arise when managing patients with mental health needs in general healthcare and community settings, and medical needs in mental health settings, and to discuss and practice strategies to overcome these.
  • have increased knowledge of and confidence in managing practical issues relating to the use of mental health legislation and capacity legislation applicable to a number of different settings.
