The Balint Group is an informal meeting space where a small group of GPs can discuss difficult situations with peers.

The newly established Newcastle General Practitioners Balint Group is facilitated by two local GPs who have recently undertaken the PHN supported Balint Leadership Training. A Balint group is a group of GPs who meet regularly and discuss clinical cases. The focus is on the psychological aspects of their practice, and particularly the doctor-patient relationship. The group is a supportive setting in which doctors can explore the human side of their work, adding a fresh dimension, learning new skills and avoiding burn-out.

The Newcastle General Practitioners Balint Group is an informal meeting space where a small group of GPs can discuss difficult situations with peers. This model is unique to other GP peer group learning sessions and practised by GPs throughout the world.

Learning Outcomes:

• Identify the importance of the doctor patient relationship and how it can impede or improve the therapeutic outcome for the patient.

• Distinguish how doctor, patient interactions can enhance or detract from the doctor's wellbeing.

• Actively engage in GP peer reflection and support.
