Do you support patients with respiratory conditions? If so, we are offering a limited number of free training places for paramedics, community nurses, primary care nurses and clinical pharmacists, in cognitive behavioural therapy to support patients with respiratory conditions.
The training is being organised by the South Yorkshire & Bassetlaw ICS Innovation Hub in collaboration with the Yorkshire & Humber Academic Health Science Network. It is part of a pilot study being run in Rotherham and Barnsley which is exploring the use of cognitive behavioural therapy to help reduce emergency admissions of patients with respiratory conditions.
The aims of the project are to:
- ‘Upskill’ front line staff* in the management of respiratory exacerbations through increased awareness of CBT principles.
- Increase the knowledge base of staff in the impact of mental health on respiratory condition exacerbation
- Reduce anxiety in patients with respiratory conditions.
The training will be delivered over two-levels, with ongoing Clinical Supervision
- Level 1: One to two hours self-directed on-line training
- Level 2: Face to face training on 4th or 5th November 2019 to include: Patient screening, risk assessment, specific CBT interventions, breathlessness management strategies, anxiety/depression management strategies, social prescribing.
- Clinical Supervision session, 9th or 10th December (dates to be confirmed)
After the training, participants with receive Clinical Supervision follow-up sessions every six weeks for six months. Training will contribute to your Continuing Professional Development target.
