Hot topics in anxiety disorders (2 CPD hours)


This module will improve your understanding of four common anxiety disorders, including:

  • The diagnostic criteria for generalised anxiety disorder
  • First-line treatment for social anxiety disorder
  • New treatment to reduce the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Screening questions for OCD

In this interactive module, you will learn as you work through real-life primary care patient scenarios. You will be assessed before starting the module and again at the end, to gauge how your knowledge has improved.

You don’t have to complete the module in one sitting. You can break off at any point mid-module and pick up again where you left off by pressing the Resume Module button alongside the module title in your Pulse Learning CPD log.
