SMMGP/RCGP 2017 Conference - Friday 3rd November 2017

Managing Drugs & Alcohol Problems in Primary Care

Date: Friday 3rd November 2017

Venue: RCGP HQ, 30 Euston Square, London. 

This joint RCGP and SMMGP conference is the largest event in the UK for GPs, shared care workers, people in treatment and recovery, nurses and other primary care staff, specialists, commissioners and researchers interested in, and involved with the management of drug and alcohol users in primary care.

The conference will explore the roles primary care can play in drug and alcohol services, for example in the added value of being able to address coexisting health issues. Users of all ages need good general healthcare and this year's conference will focus on how we can improve screening, assessment and treatment of mental health problems. Primary care is well placed to reduce stigma often associated with these problems and can also deliver wider public health outcomes effectively (e.g. smoking cessation/contraception/cervical smears/Hep C diagnosis and treatment).

We look forward to once again having a successful conference, to book a place please visit the RCGP website.
