SAGE & THYME - a free 3 hour workshop on recognising and managing distress

Psychological distress is common among patients, their families and their carers. Effective communication is widely regarded as being a key factor in determining a patient’s satisfaction, compliance with treatment and recovery.

SAGE & THYME was developed to teach the core skills of dealing with people in distress.  

This free course helps healthcare professionals to:


• Recognise psychological distress

• Empower patient and carers who are worried or distressed

• Avoid causing psychological harm

• Communicate honestly and compassionately

• Know when they have reached the boundary of their competence.
