How are you using internet-based CBT in your practice?

On 6th May 2021 New England General Practice Research Network launched the network with presentations on the use of internet-based cognitive behavioural therapy (iCBT) in general practice. 

Firstly, Dr Jessica Yip, an Armidale based GP, presented her 2020 research project titled titled Uptake of
internet-delivered cognitive behavioural therapies in general practice, concerning what difficulties, questions and concerns GPs have about recommending iCBT to their patients.

Then Dr Michael Millard, Consultant Psychiatrist and Clinical Director at the Clinical Research Unit for Anxiety and Depression (a joint project by UNSW and St Vincent’s Hospital), presented the “This Way Up” service. His presentation covered the effectiveness of iCBT, which patients may be appropriate for iCBT and how to blend iCBT with face to face or telehealth consults. For more information, to refer a patient or to sign up as a clinician the link to the ‘This Way Up’ website is:
