This online video of Cabrini's GP Lecture is available for GP's via https://praxhub.com, at no cost. The lecture entitled Current issues in women's sport - gender, ACL's and bones explores some of the issues that confront GP’s working with female patients in our community, the social implications of female sports- women and the important positive influence sports participation has on the health of our female population. 

Relevance to General Practice

General practice management of women's health involves a holistic patient centred approach and needs to be understood in the context of their psychosocial and cultural environment. As 57% of Australian GP consults are with women, the gender specific primary health needs of women constitute a significant proportion of the GP workload. The important influence of gender equality on population health and well being has gained increasing prominence in Australia in recent times. Research has shown that gender equality is linked with a number of health, economic and social benefits. 
Numerous studies have been done to investigate ACL tears in female athletes, and what is well known is that in sports that place a significant demand on the ACL- injuries are up to ten times more common in women than in men Bone mass accumulates in women until 25 to 30 years of age. Athletes who restrict calories or don’t eat diets replete with bone-building nutrients are at risk for osteoporosis.
