The GPpartners’ Board has been busy connecting with our networks, hearing often about the need for mental health support for both patients and GPs themselves. As a Board, we have agreed GP resilience is our first priority with projects emerging in this and other areas.
The Board has agreed on an initial project to provide an opportunity for GPs to connect with other GPs to enhance peer support, which is crucial to their well-being and resilience. The emphasis will be on practical strategies that are evidence based. It is planned to evaluate the project to facilitate future funding. The project is well into the planning stage. Dr Wenck has met with an excellent facilitator, Dr Ira van der Steenstraten, and content of the program is currently being developed. The project will commence in the first half of 2022.
If you’d like to hear more about this project and others being developed, join us for the GPpartners AGM, which is being held via Zoom online, at 6pm, Tuesday, 23rd November. Click here to register.
