IAPT and psychological Support for people with MSK conditions

00

Starting 27 September 2019 12:00 through to 27 September 2019 13:00

Pain, mental health and musculoskeletal conditions are strongly linked. Depression is four times more common among people in persistent pain compared to those without pain, for instance. So not recognising or treating one can impact the others greatly.

The Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme began in 2008. IAPT services provide evidence based treatments for people with anxiety and depression. NHS England is now expanding IAPT services, including introducing IAPT for long term conditions. Some IAPT services now have an offer for people with MSK conditions and pain.

Join this webinar to hear from two IAPT services which support people with MSK conditions. The webinar will include:

  • An introduction to IAPT
  • What IAPT has to offer people with MSK conditions and pain
  • Early experiences of offering this service
  • How IAPT MSK integrates with physical health services
  • Commissioning IAPT MSK

 

Who should join: everyone involved in treating people with MSK conditions, commissioners, IAPT providers.
