GP Education Evening
On Feb 02, 2016 the Medical Advisory Board of Personal Health convened for and education evening to discuss our unique project. Our Chairman – Professor Michael Brennan (Mayo Clinic, USA) – cited the Lifestyle Health program in Mayo Clinic as a template to give us direction and purpose.
Despite the numerous hurdles to innovation in Irish healthcare, one year later we have a flourishing clinic. Our dynamic team of healthcare professionals are making a real difference for patients in South Dublin.
To celebrate our 1st birthday we invited Dublin based GPs to an education evening. Hosted by Professor Donal O’Shea and Professor Michael Brennan, an interactive discussion highlighted the many support resources our clinic provides. These include our Exercise and Dietary Programmes for people with Chronic conditions. Classes up and running so far cover Diabetes, MS, Parkinson’s, Pink Ribbon and Tai Chi. Over the coming weeks, classes for osteoporosis and stroke patients will begin.
Local GPs have started to refer patients for our programmes, particularly in the area of chronic health management. This has provided a great boost in morale among our fellow health professionals in South Dublin. The collegiate atmosphere has helped to provide best support for relevant patients.
