A Joint Conference Healthcare Conferences UK & The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust

Researched and produced in partnership with The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust and chaired by Dr Julian Stern, Director of Adult and Forensic Services & Consultant Psychiatrist in Psychotherapy, The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, this important and timely conference will support delegates to better understand and meet the needs of people with medically unexplained symptoms/somatic symptom disorder. Through national updates, extended sessions and practical case studies the Summit will bring together leading practitioners in this area. Following an opening presentation on the ‘lived experience’ the programme will focus on; improving management and treatment, whole team consultation for GP and primary care teams, identifying and managing MUS at Accident & Emergency, MUS and Trauma, prioritising MUS for Commissioners, and setting recovery goals for MUS.

Learning points:
Attending the Summit will enable you to:

  • Explore contemporary practice in MUS, PPS and the impact of trauma, inequality and psycho-social deprivation on life course and health outcomes.
  • Improve your understanding of the breadth and diversity of PPS and MUS including what gets under the skin of GPs.
  • Learn about the impact of adverse experience in childhood (trauma +) on patient experience, body-mind health and outcomes in adult life.  
  • Explore Innovations in Primary and Emergency care – frequent attenders, complex presentations and cost savings.
  • Understand and relate to GP pressures: What helps? How to help? What do GPs want, what might they need – how can we help to support and nurture General Practice and its function of providing much of the ‘therapeutic’ help and listening that complex patients receive 95% of the time?
