Full CPD module


Learning objectives

This module will detail the care of patients with mental illness in general practice, including:

  • Barriers to quality care of these patients in general practice
  • The role of primary care in serious mental illness
  • Managing bipolar disorder and schizophrenia in primary care

In this module, you will watch Dr Elizabeth England deliver a presentation covering the above topics. This video was recorded at a Pulse Clinical Seminar which took place in May 2012.

The powerpoint slides will cycle through automatically as the video plays, but if you are interested in a particular aspect of the presentation, use the arrow buttons at the bottom of the screen to navigate through the slides, simply click on the slide you are interested in and you will be taken to the relevant part of the video.

After viewing the video, you will complete a multiple-choice assessment to test the knowledge you have gained. You will then have the opportunity to record your personal learning points and claim your CPD credits, which will be recorded on a certificate stored automatically in your Pulse Learning CPD log.
