In this episode of the Primary Care Knowledge Boost Podcast Doctors Lisa and Sara talk with GP Dr Austin O’Carroll who works in inner-city Dublin with marginalised and homeless / rough sleeping communities.
He is co-founder of Safetynet Ireland, North Dublin City GP Training, and GPCareForAll. He talks about his take on how unhelpful the label of personality disorder is for patients in his care, about his take on the situation: the Triple F**k syndrome, and how medicine contributes to the systemic oppression of people born into poverty. Together they talk about trauma informed care and examples of outcomes for patients in his care.
