GPs often play a central role in the provision of healthcare to communities in the immediate, acute phase of emergency situations and, on an ongoing basis for the long-term recovery of individuals and their broader community. Emergency Service Workers are one of the high risk groups for trauma exposure. This workshop has been designed to assist GPs and other health professionals to identify patients with acute stress disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and other comorbidities. Participants will also learn how to provide appropriate patient support such as psychological first aid and treatment pathways. In recognition of the challenges surrounding treating trauma affected patients and the fact that many health professionals live in the trauma affected communities, this workshop also focuses on self-care including the resources and strategies most suitable to support this.This training aims to increase the skills and confidence of GP’s and allied health professionals to:Understand the relationship between traumatic events and the development of mental health conditionsIdentify evidence-based treatment and referral pathways for a patient impacted by traumaRecommend evidence-based resources, including e-Mental Health, for family/kinship groups impacted by trauma
