This course is designed to introduce participants to Motivational Interviewing principles and skills in order to increase the effectiveness of routine healthcare interactions. Motivational Interviewing is a style of communication that seeks to assist people in exploring their choices in health behaviour and life style. It is person-centred but also adopts a gentle guiding style. It was originally developed by William Miller and Stephen Rollnick in the field of addictive behaviours in the 1980s but over the past 20 years its utility has also been recognised across a spectrum of issues related to health and lifestyle related behaviours including obesity, diabetes, medication adherence, physiotherapy, and rehabilitation.
A number of HEE funded places are available for nurses and nurse-practitioners on a first-come-first-served basis.

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.
This course contains no theorists, no gurus and no pharma sponsors -- just real-life GPs who will be back seeing patients as soon as the course has finished. The course has been accredited by the RCGP since February 2012 and is now the only one of its type to be completely free from pharmeceutical company sponsorship.

Medically unexplained symptoms are an everyday part of working in general practice but can be a source of stress to both patients and clinicians alike.
This one-day workshop will give GPs the opportunity to reflect on their experiences in dealing with patients who have medically unexplained symptoms. It will include communication and management strategies which give clinicians the tools and confidence to help their patients (and themselves) deal with chronic symptoms for which there is no identifiable organic cause.
This will be an interactive day consisting of a mixture of short lectures, with the main emphasis being small group work and case-based discussion. There will also be facilitated examples of clinician-patient interactions, and a resource book to accompany the course.
