Self Care


This course equips practitioners with the knowledge and skills to conduct a 'self-care aware' consultation for patients with self-limiting minor ailments.

The course also includes strategies for the whole primary care team, to improve patient access to evidence-based information about minor ailments and to enhance patient confidence.

This course has been developed in partnership with the Proprietary Association of Great Britain (PAGB) and RCGP experts in self-care as part of a collaborative drive to change the culture of dependency in the NHS.
