GPs have a crucial role to play in promoting health and preventing disease. During the consultation there are excellent opportunities to discuss healthy living with the patients and for the early detection of illness.

To put patients at the centre of their care, GPs need to possess appropriate skills to support people to self-care, taking them through a range of approaches, in partnership, recognising that the individual should make the choices, decisions and take the actions themselves. Gaining a better understanding about inequalities in health and strategies to address inequalities in health are important aspects of training to be a GP.

Here we have collated key articles from our journals to help you meet the curriculum requirements in this area.

These curriculum resources are regularly updated with relevant articles from our range of healthcare publications. All articles are reviewed by GP advisers. We have set the standard lifetime of an article at two years and will aim to renew all articles within that timeframe. However, some older articles will remain in the listing if our reviewers believe there to be no significant changes to the topic covered.
