First Dates and Venues Announced for PsoWell Training Programme

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 January 2020. We are pleased to announce that a number of training days have now been confirmed. We are now welcoming applications to attend training 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.
