  • : Online

This online learning module includes an original peer reviewed article written for GPs on Improving recognition and management of bipolar disorder

Relevance to General Practice

- With our ageing population, painful conditions of the foot are becoming more prevalent. 
- It is estimated that foot pain affects one in four older people, with forefoot pain affecting two- thirds of those patients 
- Bunions or hallux valgus have a reported prevalence of up to 35% in patients over the age of 65 years 
- Some of these conditions can lead to significant problems that may compromise an older person’s ability to maintain their independence 
- Exploring the patient’s expectations and concerns may reduce the number of inappropriate referrals to foot surgeons.
