Why should I take this course?

Welcome to our Shared Decision Making II (SDMII) course and the session, Living with a Long-term Mental Health Condition: Bipolar Disorder. This is intended to explore in greater depth the interactions between doctors and patients that help create a meaningful outcome to consultations. They are intended to be applicable across primary care, and not confined to medical professionals. This micro skills course from NHS Health Education England is based on the concept of 'talking about what matters', rather than talking about 'what's the matter'. The scenarios have been chosen to be familiar but challenging to the traditional medical model of consultation. They are real cases which have been recreated by role players. There is no 'correct' way of conducting these encounters and they are not intended as a 'perfect' consultation, but real life. The intention is to demonstrate how and why space needs to be created to explore understandings, values and beliefs.

Are the programs accredited for continuous professional development (CPD) or continuing medical education (CME)?

Our courses have been developed and are delivered by Talisium's global network of content providers including universities and various professional bodies whose work underpins CPD for healthcare professionals.
Certificates of completion will be available and can be downloaded once a course has been completed. These can be used as evidence of learning for training and CPD purposes. You will need to check with your governing body about CPD standards and requirements.
Unless otherwise stated, certificates issued through Talisium are not qualifications of any formal assessment.

Do I need any prior qualifications or experience?

Our courses and programs have been designed to meet the needs of a broad range of trainees and qualified healthcare professionals. For most courses, we do not ask that you hold certain qualifications or meet certain criteria.
Some courses are aligned to specialist medical curricula so there is a certain level of medical knowledge required in these cases. On the whole, however, the courses and programs are accessible to a broad audience of learners.
