101527 - Chronic rhinosinusitus: meeting the challenges

  • : Online

This free online module includes an original peer-reviewed article on chronic rhinosinusitis. Immediate feedback is given as questions are answered and specialist expert guidance is provided on clinical diagnosis.

Relevance to General Practice

- Chronic rhinosinusitis (also known as chronic sinusitis) is a common condition that typically has a complex multifactorial pathophysiology. 
- Chronic rhinosinusitis is often challenging to treat successfully and many patients require long-term treatment 
- Other conditions can masquerade as sinusitis so need to be considered when making the diagnosis. 
- Serious complications can occur and recognising symptoms heralding this (such as clear rhinorrhoea) are important to dictate urgent referral.
