Shared Medical Appointments

Shared Medical Appointments (SMAs), also called ‘Group Visits’, are a revolutionary way of managing chronic disease in primary care. They are “A series of consecutive individual medical consultations in a supportive group setting where all can listen, interact, and learn.” A SMA is both an individual consultation and a group education session.

SMAs involve a doctor, a facilitator (usually an allied health professional) who directs the 60 to 90 minute session and manages group dynamics, and 6 to 12 patients at a time. If you’re frustrated with the limitations of 1:1 consulting, SMAs are for you – and for your patients.

Become a Registered SMA Facilitator by attending a one day training course and followup assessment. ASLM provides an ongoing support structure for GPs and Facilitators trained in the ASLM SMA protocol. Training dates have been announced.
