This webinar is one of three MHPN webinars produced on behalf of a national collaboration between the 31 Australian Primary Health Networks.
Through a case based discussion, an interdisciplinary panel of clinical experts will discuss the relationship and interplay between ageing related issues, including but not limited to; mental and physical health, grief, loss and social isolation.
The webinar will describe the challenges, merits and opportunities of evidence-based approaches deemed most effective in treating and supporting older people with mental and physical health and/or psychosocial issues.
