Event description

Description

Rates of cardiovascular disease and its related co-morbidities in those with severe mental illness are disproportionately high. Those suffering from a severe mental illness are six times more likely to die from cardiovascular disease, four times more likely to die from respiratory disease, and overall likely to die 14-23 years earlier than the general population.

The Collaborative Centre for Cardiometabolic Health in Psychosis (ccCHiP) delivers an innovative service that provides a model of integrated care for the assessment and management of cardiometabolic health in those with a severe and enduring mental illness to reduce the disparity in life expectancy between the mental health and general population.

Using a ‘one-stop-shop’ model, ccCHiP integrates multiple services and clinicians to provide a clinic in one afternoon to improve accessibility to a population who would otherwise have engagement and adherence challenges whilst bridging ‘traditional service delivery models’.

This event is designed to showcase the benefits of an integrated model of care in meeting the needs of a complex cohort, how this operates successfully and showcases each discpline and their contribution to the overall service and patient outcome.

This event contributes towards CPD points for all attendees.

Internal SLHD attendees will automatically have these added through CEWD.

Free Morning Tea, Lunch and Afternoon Tea will be provided!
