PsoWell aims to equip dermatology specialists & psychologists with new skills to empower their patients to live better with psoriasis.
We, the Psoriasis Association, are
funding Professor Chris Bundy and her team at Cardiff University to roll out the
PsoWell (psoriasis and wellbeing) training programme. This novel
programme involves a one-day training event that aims to equip dermatology
specialist staff and psychologists with knowledge and motivational interviewing skills to empower
patients with complex psoriasis to manage their condition effectively through
lifestyle behaviour change.
Professor Chris Bundy will deliver up to
ten training events across the UK between October 2019 and February 2020. We
are pleased to announce that a number of training days have now been confirmed.
We are still welcoming applications to attend training in Dundee. Successful events have already been held in Cardiff, Harrogate, Derby, Manchester, Belfast, London and Bristol.
The Psoriasis Association will sponsor free places to
members of a dermatology team (at least one doctor and one nurse) and health
and clinical psychologists to attend a training day. We will only make 20
places available per event to allow time for skills practice and one to one
coaching. Individuals who complete the training will receive a certificate of
approval as a PsoWell Practitioner, and dermatology teams will receive a
certificate of recognition as a PsoWell Clinic.
the remaining training days are as follows:
