Reflective Practice for GPs - A series of four master classes

A series of four master classes have been designed to help GPs identify both the organisational and psychological barriers to change and personal development.


Each master class will provide a brief introduction to one of these four key issues:

  • Behavioural change - cognitive behavioural approaches to reframing problems.
  • Organisational change - what can I do to improve my practice?
  • Reflection - how to be a good enough GP.
  • Mindfulness - mindfulness and stress reduction.

Delegates will have an opportunity to choose a more in-depth session on one of the topics and can attend one or all events and develop a wide range of skills to improve their resilience.

Dates:

Saturday 12 September 2015           10am-3pm
Saturday 10 October 2015                10am-3pm
Friday 13 November 2015                 9am-2pm
Friday 4 December 2015                   9am-2pm


A light lunch will be provided.

Venue:

Londonwide LMCs, Entrance D, Tavistock House South, Tavistock Square, London WC1H 9LG.

Overview

Each master class helps individuals to identify both the organisational and psychological barriers to change and personal development. It introduces techniques to enable participants to overcome some of the challenges facing GPs and gain insight into the necessary changes that need to be made to their practice in order to improve their working lives and their ability to continue to deliver safe, effective and compassionate care.

The programme is aimed at those who face challenges with excessive workload, system changes and expectations from patients, commissioners and the media. It will provide a safe space for sharing concerns and identify needs, and aims to give participants the tools and techniques to enable them to move forward and deal with constant changes in general practice and the wider NHS.

Aims

  • Create a safe and confidential space where difficulties can be discussed openly.
  • Support GPs to identify and prioritise the stressors in their working life.
  • Provide the GPs with alternative ways of thinking that will help them to manage these stresses in their workplace.
  • Enable GPs to self-reflect, maintain a high level of patient care and look after their own wellbeing, while achieving a better work-life balance.

Learning Outcomes

  • How to utilise a reflective practice model using practice or personal examples.
  • Understand one’s limitations.
  • To leave with an understanding of our personal responsibility to identify our stresses; avoid those we can and strengthen ourselves to live with those we cannot avoid.
  • To leave with a mini action plan on how to improve your health and wellbeing at work.
