How to Talk Work and complete the Fitnote in Primary Care -  A Live, interactive workshop for FCPs

A 3-hour interactive workshop via Zoom designed for First Contact Physiotherapy Practitioners in Primary Care. The workshop will ensure your compliance with the FCP Roadmap to Practice, discuss work and workability within the biopsychosocial framework of health and the importance of effective work conversations. It also examines what workplace changes can be suggested and influenced and how to use the AHP Health and Work Report and Med 3 Fitnotes. Time will be spent completing the Fitnotes using a variety of case studies. We will encourage active debate and discussion to ensure that you improve your confidence in addressing work factors and completing the Fitnote.

The case studies will have a physiotherapy bias.  However, much of the content is also applicable to other professionals working in a first contact role in primary care, especially OT's.


Course Objectives:

On completion of this course you should be able to:

  1. Understand Work & Health in the FCP roadmap to practice
  2. Be familiar with ‘Work’ and ‘Workability’ in the BPS model of health
  3. Know how to undertake a work conversation effectively
  4. Recommend basic workplace changes and modifications 
  5. Competently complete the AHP health and Work and Med 3 Fitnote
  6. Be confident in the above in your own practice or place of work
