Shared Medical Appointments

Shared Medical Appointments or 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.” As such an SMA is a both an individual medical consultation and a group education session.

SMAs involve a doctor, a facilitator – usually an allied health professional – who directs the 60-90 minute sessions and manages group dynamics, and 6-12 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!
