Course Description

A4Medicine proudly welcomes you to join this interesting webinar on medically unexplained symptoms ( MUS ) by Professor Tayyeb Tahir. Dr. Tahir is a Consultant Psychiatrist at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, UK.

A renowned specialist, Dr. Tahir's special interests are in the field of General Adult Psychiatry, Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry, and Old Age Psychiatry.

According to BJGP, MUS costs the UK economy over £ 14 billion per annum and it poses a significant challenge for primary care clinicians. MUS are inconsistently recognized, diagnosed, and managed in primary care.

Medically Unexplained Symptoms (MUS) are everybody’s business, Not all MUS reflect the somatic presentation of emotional distress and can arise from subtle disruptions in normal psychological mechanisms that produce distortions in bodily consciousness and control, Symptom-focused attention is a key factor in the creation and maintenance of unexplained complaints. Therapy for MUS should aim to minimize symptom-focused attention and symptom misinterpretation while augmenting healthy perceptions of the body."

This talk would cover the burden of the condition, recognition, classification, and guidance on the management of this challenging condition which can account for up to 45 % of all general practice consultations. This talk would include case-based scenarios and you would have the opportunity of asking further questions.
