Publication of Tackling Causes and Consequences of Health Inequalities
GP trainer and educator on our programme, Dr James Matheson is an editor on the new practical guide to working in areas of deprivation. Aimed at doctors and their wider multidisciplinary teams, this book provides key knowledge and practical advice on how to address the causes and consequences of health inequalities to achieve better outcomes for patients.
GM Deprivation GPST has started!
We have seen the first cohort of ST trainees beginning their journey with us on the GM Deprivation ST Programme. It has been exciting meeting them, hearing their hopes and dreams for their training and General Practice careers.
Since we have started, there has been some excellent teaching. We have heard from Dr Austin O’Carroll, who leads the pioneering North Dublin GPST programme, on stigma; and Dr Ruth Thompson, from Urban Village Medical Practice, on Adverse Childhood Events.
We have also covered topics such as respiratory medicine, cardiovascular medicine and how to navigate the portfolio. It has been great to hear from some experts in their fields, and to learn together.
We are looking forward to the term ahead, getting to know each other better and continuing to learn and develop as GP trainees.
