Addressing mental health and wellbeing in your consultations
The covid pandemic has led to increased levels of anxiety and depression in people with diabetes. This wokshop will focus on how to identify emotional distress, whether in face to face or remote consultations, and how to distinguish between depression, anxiety and diabetes distress.
This workshop will help participants to understand how use of the empowerment model allows exploration of the person’s emotional state and enables the health care professional to support the individual to identify their own personal therapeutic options.
By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Understand the use of the empowerment process in identifying emotional issues
- Identify the difference between anxiety/depression and diabetes distress
- Have a clear pathway for helping the person to identify the best therapeutic option for them
