In my line of work, I am continually confronted with the need to address patients’ social and psychological problems, and I have come to realise that my prescription pad is less critical than my ears and my referral networks. I believe that listening to patients and helping them address their psychological and social issues Is vital for long term health. Every week I discuss a topical issue with friends and colleagues, all of whom are experts in what they do. Together we unpack and analyse complex problems that affect our society and hopefully we can come to some meaningful conclusions that can benefit us all in our daily lives.Visit our website for more information and free courses https://www.meducate.com.au/courses
