Guideline debrief: social anxiety disorder

Module summary

This interactive, case-based learning module covers the GP-relevant sections of the May 2013 NICE guidance on social anxiety including recognition and assessment and how to manage those reluctant to be referred to IAPT services

Learning objectives

To improve your understanding of the NICE guidance on social anxiety, including:

  • the definition and prevalence of social anxiety
  • the identification of symptoms of social anxiety at different ages
  • strategies for engagement
  • management options for adults, focussing on those who are reluctant to be referred to IAPT
  • First, second and third-line pharmacotherapeutic options and what should not be used
  • When to refer
  • Challenges in indentifying the disorder in children

In this interactive module, you will learn as you work through real-life primary care patient scenarios. You will be assessed before starting the module and again at the end, to gauge how your knowledge has improved.

You don't have to complete the whole module in one sitting. You can break off at any point mid-module and pick up again where you left off by pressing the Resume Module button alongside the module title in your Pulse Learning CPD log.

Great! Especially picking out social anxiety disorder in contrast to anxiety due to other causes, such as generalised anxiety disorder, panic disorder, depression, PTSD and OCD, and how to pick it up

Clear review of the guidelines with some good case examples.

Lots and lots of follow ups, weekly for some - not sure how this is possible with GP pressures. Informative
