Overview: McGill University Faculty of Medicine is again sponsoring two medical CBT workshops at the Annual Refresher Course for Family Physicians.
Both workshops assume that appointments are ten minutes or less in duration. As such, the focus is exclusively on those tools that are highly practical and efficient. Although ideally taken together for 18.0 Mainpro+ credits, the workshops can also be taken individually for 9.0 Mainpro+ credits* each.
Ten-Minute CBT: Real Tools for Real Doctors (9 am – 12:15 pm): YES, "good enough" CBT can be integrated into ten-minute primary care appointments. In this three-credit-per-hour workshop, Dr. Greg Dubord and senior CBT Canada faculty teach you the essential skills that may fundamentally change your management of many vexing behavioral problems.
You’ll learn flexible medical CBT tools to enhance your existing approaches to common psychiatric disorders (e.g., addictions, anxiety, depression), chronic medical conditions (e.g., asthma, diabetes, chronic pain), and disease risk factors (e.g., obesity, lack of exercise, poor stress management).
- Learn to structure ten-minute appointments to maximize impact.
- Acquire a "deck" of tools of persuasion with broad clinical applications.
- Learn the vital importance of not working harder than most patients.
SuperDoc: Leveraging CBT Tools to Maximize Resiliency (1 pm – 4:15 pm): Today’s cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is a treasure-trove of scientifically‐tested tools to help physicians increase their resiliency and reduce their risk of burnout. Physician wellness is important for countless reasons, including that it significantly determines the quality of care delivered (CMPA, 2018). Simply put, the burned-out doctor is probably a crappy doctor.
Sadly, the burned-out are also at risk for Premature Clinician Aging Disorder (PCAD). PCAD isn't just the result of a heavy caseload and long hours.PCAD is also predicted by one's psychology.
Happily, state‐of‐the‐art CBT includes a collection of powerful techniques for silencing self‐criticism, decreasing rumination, letting go of the past, increasing self-compassion, improving decision‐making, optimizing time management, boosting mindfulness, and making a marriage spark joy.
