Free talk on eating disorders scheduled for GPs in September

Nick Pollard, co-author of The Oxford Specialist Handbook on Eating Disorders, will present a 45-minute talk next month on his work on eating disorders.

Nick is a co-founder with his daughter Dr Elizabeth McNaught and wife Carol of Family Mental Wealth, a social enterprise that aims to develop clinician and patient’s capacity for better mental health.

Family Mental Wealth produced a parent toolkit, ‘Headway’, with clinical experts to help parents improve skills for dealing with children’s mental health.

The enterprise also runs eLearning on eating disorders for clinicians and teachers, and offers talks in workplaces.

Note, the talk on Thursday 7 September will not be recorded so attendance is recommended.

NASGP has now been running free lunchtime clinical talks for sessional GPs for over a year with topics covering:

  • Risk management for GP locums.
  • Menopause in general practice.
  • Skin cancer in general practice.
  • Bowel cancer in general practice.
  • GP mental health.
  • Brain tumours, presentations and diagnosis.
  • Solution-focused approaches for GPs.
  • Ovarian cancer – an update for GPs.
  • Improv skills for GPs.
  • IBD: what do GPs need to know?
  • Medicolegal pitfalls for GP locums.
  • GP update: endometriosis.

Many of the talks are also available to GPs via NASGP’s YouTube channel, where they are curated into a playlist for ease of reference.
