These free 60-minute interactive eLearning modules are based on common patient presentations in general practice and focus on imparting the necessary skills and knowledge to enable GPs to provide current evidence-based care to their patients.
The modules are accredited by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) and attract continued professional development (CPD) points for general practitioners registered with either organisation.
Managing prostate cancer in general practice
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in Australian men.
Despite a high survival rate, a significant sub-group of patients report poor quality of life related to treatment side-effects.
General practice plays a key role in prostate cancer prevention and early detection, informing and assisting men with their decision regarding PSA testing, knowing which symptoms to investigate further as well as understanding management options and supportive care needs.
Managing oesophagogastric cancers in general practice
Despite low incidence rates, oesophageal and gastric cancers have a poor prognosis, with 5-year survival rates ranging from 20-30%.
General practice plays a key role in promoting prevention strategies, increasing awareness of risk factors, in the early identification of signs and symptoms of oesophageal and gastric cancers and in prompt referral to diagnostic and specialist services.
