This session aims to explain what medically unexplained symptoms (MUS) are and how best to help patients who suffer from them. It describes how to assess patients holistically, how to effectively communicate with patients about their symptoms and how to help them feel empowered to self-manage their symptoms as much as possible. It also discusses the importance of the doctor having support available to them if needed due to the complexity of these consultations.


By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Recognise the difference between MUS, functional and dissociative neurological symptoms, functional somatic symptoms, functional somatic syndromes and somatisation disorder
• Identify the appropriate consultation skills needed to effectively support and manage patients with MUS in primary care
• Describe a holistic approach to assess the impact of MUS on the patient's life
• This session uses self assessments that help you check what you have learnt.
