  • : Online

Imagine being about to save your patients time and money and get an answer to some simple questions on the spot. Imagine being able to reassure your pregnant patient that all is well with baby. Imagine better treatment outcomes because you can actually see where you are going. 

This course has been specifically designed to develop the confidence to utilise ultrasound to address the clinical questions most often encountered in the general practice setting. 

Let us show you how easily ultrasound can make a difference in your clinic. 

Relevance to General Practice

There’s clear evidence that bedside ultrasound is better than a physical exam alone. It can decrease the overall cost of care and increase both diagnostic efficiency and patient satisfaction. It’s also a tool that’s proven to increase the safety of procedures. 

As ultrasound technology becomes more affordable and readily accessible, GPs are increasingly utilizing ultrasound across a broad range of clinical applications and settings. The benefits of GP performed ultrasound are well documented and can be particularly advantageous to the clinician working in in a resource limited environment.
