MUSCULOSKELETAL AND SPORTS MEDICINE

Musculoskeletal problems are among the top three most common reasons patients visit their GP in Australia. This program provides a sound foundation for understanding different types of musculoskeletal pain and their causes, and gives GPs the knowledge to diagnose and manage joint pain, rheumatoid arthritis, and sport injuries including neck injuries, particularly to minimise risk of spinal cord or nerve damage. The course also covers the management of back pain, the most common musculoskeletal complaint in primary care.

CHRONIC DISEASE AND CONDITIONS

About half of all Australians have a chronic disease. This program equips GPs with the knowledge to manage common chronic diseases in primary care, including history-taking, diagnosing conditions, identifying risk factors, developing a management plan, and ensuring patient compliance. Conditions covered include COPD, type 2 diabetes, CCF, gastrointestinal complaints, chronic kidney disease, osteoarthritis, hypertension, hepatitis, coronary artery disease, smoking, obesity, polycystic ovarian syndrome, male incontinence, and prostate problems.

DOMESTIC ABUSE AND VIOLENCE

Two in five Australian adults experience violence from age 15. This program teaches GPs, as trusted care providers, how to identify and manage domestic abuse and violence in all age groups: children, adults and elderly. The program covers features suggestive of child neglect, physical and sexual abuse, and mandatory reporting requirements. It also provides the risk factors and support options for victims of domestic and elder abuse, including how to distinguish injury types and the effects of ageing on healing, plus the role of the GP in managing suspected abuse.

RESPIRATORY CONDITIONS AND INFECTIONS

Respiratory complaints are one of the most common presentations in general practice in Australia. The Respiratory Conditions & Infections program helps GPs to diagnose, treat and manage common respiratory conditions in primary care, such as asthma, COPD (including application of the COPD-X guidelines), sinusitis, lung cancer, upper respiratory tract infections (the third most commonly managed presentation in primary care in Australia) and complications, and more.

IMMUNISATION AND VACCINATION

Immunisations and vaccinations are the second most common presentation managed in general practice in Australia. This program uses a step-wise approach to help the GP assess patient safety, compare strategies used by vaccines to induce immunity, anticipate vaccine effectiveness and side effects, manage child and adult vaccinations, and recommend an immunisation schedule to minimise the risk of travellers. The program also covers the possible implications of the COVID-19 vaccine on general practice.
