Webinars for GPs
We have recently launched our new GP webinar programme, allowing busy GPs and healthcare professionals to participate in educational events from the comfort of their own practice or home. Each quarter, Priory’s leading experts will host a webinar exploring a different mental health and wellbeing issue, such as:
- Burnout and stress
- Handling addiction in general practice
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Eating disorders
- Child and adolescent mental health
Our presenters will provide theory relating to the topic as well as practical advice that GPs and healthcare professionals can implement during consultations with their patients. Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask our presenters questions.
Our free webinars will typically be an hour long and we will endeavour to host these sessions outside of busy practice hours. To ensure that our educational webinars are available to more people, we will record each session and make them available on our website, so if you are unable to attend live, you can still access the webinar at a time that is convenient for you.
Our webinars can contribute towards your CPD points and you will be issued with a certificate of attendance after the event.
Exploring the relationship between ADHD and addiction
Join Dr Pawan Rajpal on 30th September for a live webinar where he'll discuss symptom recognition, early intervention and provide information to help healthcare practitioners to better understand the ADHD-addiction relationship.
Approximately 5% of children globally have ADHD, making it the most common childhood neurobehavioural disorder. Children and young people with ADHD are more likely than their peers to misuse substances.
As the person with ADHD enters into adulthood, the addiction risk-factor remains present; they are three-times more likely to misuse substances than someone without ADHD.
Studies have also shown that at least 25% of people receiving treatment for alcohol and other drug addiction also present with ADHD.
The good news is that people who receive treatment for their ADHD are significantly less likely to abuse drugs and alcohol than those with undiagnosed ADHD - treatment is key to preventing detrimental and negative behaviours.
