This workshop provides evidence-based information and techniques to promote and foster mental and physical health for patients. This workshop reviews common emotional and mental health issues likely to be encountered by physicians and teaches evidence-based skills that physicians can use to support patients’ mental health and to support their own well-being. In particular, the workshop takes into account the added mental health burden due to the pandemic and strategies appropriate and relevant for the pandemic. These strategies are based on empirically supported knowledge and skills drawn from literature on mental health, stress, coping, emotional management, chronic disease management, and behavior changes, and provides ways to discuss these tips with patients in applicable, understandable ways within the scope of practice of physicians.

Next program: Starts Sept 22, 2021 and runs Wednesday nights 6:30-8 PM Eastern Time (4:30-6 PM Mountain Time and 7:30-9 PM Atlantic Time)
