Event description

Description

Dr Jan Orman, General Practice Services Consultant, Black Dog Institute will present on the use of eTherapy Resources to help with evidenced based therapy tools the adequate treatment in mental health care as part of the StepCare Screening Device from the Black Dog Institute in conjunction of the Hunter New England Central Coast Primary Health Network.

Many practitioners are still not aware that there are reliable evidence-based, locally-developed resources and treatment programs available on the internet. Dr Jan Orman will also explain the eMHPrac website that aims to educate GPs and health professionals about the reliable online resources that are available and how to use them in clinical practice. The information night will provide an overview of these resources, including portals, websites and online treatment programs that are available for practitioners to recommend to their patients with mild to moderate common mental health conditions and to discuss ways of integrating these resources into their care.

This information night will enable GP’s to better understand how eTherapy resources can help patients improve their mental health and emotional wellbeing with the use of evidenced based eTherapy tools in conjunction with the StepCare screening device. The PHN is working with the Black Dog Institute’s Lifespan project to provide access to quality, evidenced based suicide prevention training and patient screening to increase skills and confidence of GPs and Practice Nurses to detect and manage at-risk patients. People with suicidal behaviour frequently visit primary care physicians in the weeks or days before suicide. Up to 45 per cent of individuals who died by suicide saw their GP within one month prior to their death and up to 20 per cent saw their GP within one week before their death.

Dr Orman is primarily a clinician. She works part time as a general practitioner in a very busy University Health Service, privately as a psychological medicine practitioner in Sydney’s inner west and as a GP educator for the Black Dog Institute. She has a Masters of Psychological Medicine in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and a longstanding interest in eating disorders, especially their management in general practice.

We look forward to you joining us for this very interesting evening.
