Succeed as a locum with MIMS Learning
We've launched 4 learning plans worth over 21 CPD credits to give you advice on key aspects of life as a locum or sessional GP.
These MIMS Learning plans offer updates on everything from preparing for appraisal as a GP locum to consultation skills, personal resilience and key clinical guidance updates.
Locum learning Plan 1 covers consultation skills including dealing with angry or bereaved patients, coping with manipulative patients and understanding why the patient has come.
Plan 2 encompasses confidentiality, consent and safeguarding, offering key updates on GMC confidentiality guidance, consent and capacity, and NICE guidance on child abuse and neglect.
Plan 3 highlights appraisal, inspection and resilience – what happens when Care Quality Commission inspectors come to a practice, how to prepare for revalidation and appraisal, and resilience under pressure.
Plan 4 cherry-picks what you need to know about NICE guidelines on multimorbidity, suspected cancer and chest pain, and outlines the principles of prescribing for older people.
