Wednesday 22 January 2020 | 10am - 3pm

Northumbria University, City Campus, Newcastle

This Fuse QRM, co-organised with the North of England Commissioning Support Unit and the Cumbria, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust, brings together academic researchers and practitioners with an interest in mental health, within the framework of the North East and North Cumbria Integrated Care System Mental Health work stream.

What will I gain from this?

The event will provide an overview of existing mental health research, policy and practice in the region; identify cross-cutting themes and needs for future research and collaborations; and explore structural opportunities for developing these collaborations and research projects.

Who is it for?

Anyone and everyone who is interested in mental health research collaborations, including the public (children, young people and families).

Programme and registration will be available on the ‘Events’ page of the Fuse website.

Learning Organisation Collaborative (LOC) Fifth International Festival - available to book now! #LOCintheLakes

Date: Tuesday 3rd March 2019

Timings: 9.30am - 4.30pm

Venue: Rheged, Redhills, Penrith, Cumbria, CA11 0DQ

In a place far, far away, a long time ago, everyone had time to do their work and manage their relationships. Time to care and time to be themselves.

Lack of time is now one of our most pressing issues!

Yet the workload increases. Our population is ageing; the things we can do to help people are ever more complex and hard to manage. We need to be able to do more, do it better and take less time doing it!

LOC 2020 will help us with this challenge. A range of workshops and learning events to help us manage time better, save time, reduce waste and create better systems.

Do our work differently; be happier at work; get better outcomes and a better experience for our patients – the Force will be with us!

Save the day and book your place now on our dedicated LOC in the Lakes 2020: Time Wars event page!

Course Details

A one day update course by GPs for GPs, GP STs, Practice Nurses and Nurse Practitioners.

The GP Update Course is designed to be very relevant to clinical practice and to help you meet the requirements for revalidation.

GPs want to stay up to date but the task is a formidable one; with the best will in the world, it’s hard to achieve. With all the evidence inundating us it can be hard to know which bits of evidence should change our practice. We want to help by collating and synthesising the evidence for you – so that you don’ t have to! Using a lecture based format, with plenty of time for interaction, the GP presenters discuss the results of the most important evidence and guidance, placing them in the context of what is already known about this topic and the needs of primary care.

We want you to enjoy the day! We’ll use humour and video clips to illustrate points being made and to keep you focused.

How will it help me with revalidation? Revalidation requires us not just to stay up to date, but to show evidence of how our practice has changed. Come on the course and we will give you a copy of The Appraisal and Revalidation Action Pack; a practical step by step guide to prepare for revalidation and prove you are up to date.

Who is this course designed for?

Established GPs and Trainers wanting to keep up to date across the whole field of general practice and to incorporate new evidence into their current practice.

GP ST1, 2 & 3 for whom the course and handbook will provide the perfect launch pad into general practice. Fantastic for AKT and CSA revision.

GPs returning from maternity leave or a career break who want to be brought up to speed with current practice.

Practice Nurses & Nurse Practitioners who will find this a great update on chronic disease management and a good overview of the latest changes across all of primary care.

Don’t take our word for it – See what our past delegates had to say!

  • Superb course, well presented. By GPs for GPs what more could I want?
  • Excellent and very relevant to everyday practice. Inspiring and encouraging
  • Concise, relevant, provides a year’s worth of education in one day
  • Refreshingly presented. Excellent value for money
  • Revalidation Action Pack - Thank you for this practical strategy. Excellent humorous presentations. Learned much more that I thought possible in one day
  • Can’t wait to get back to the surgery to make some positive changes
  • Reassuring to know that the information presented is free from the influence of pharma companies
  • This course should be made mandatory for all GPs

Course delegates receive a copy of The GP Update Handbook, a 400 page book outlining the results of the most important research relevant to primary care over the last 5 years. The GP Update Handbook is much more than just a set of lecture notes. It covers more subjects more extensively than is possible in the one-day course. It is a valuable resource document for future reference and exam revision, and everything we present is fully referenced.

Delegates also receive a year’s subscription to The GP Update Handbook Online from the course date, plus access from the date you register. We will also give you a copy of The GP Update Appraisal and Revalidation Action Pack which contains step by step guidance on audits, reflective practice and service developments related to the course, so that you have documented evidence of improved care for your next appraisal.
