About the course

primary care Improving empathy

This one-day interactive simulation training course is open to Clinicians working in Primary Care who may be involved in the care of patients with symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and who may not have disclosed their experiences or may not be accessing appropriate support for their symptoms.

Establishing a trust-based relationship in which conversations on trauma can be facilitated is crucial for being able to identify and treat symptoms effectively. Simulation training is the ideal learning mechanism through which to address this need.
