  • : Online


This free online learning module provides 15 clinical questions and immediate answers about an original peer-reviewed article written for GPs.

Relevance to General Practice

Schizophrenia and related psychoses are conservatively estimated to affect more than 100,000 Australians, as well as their families, friends and colleagues. People with schizophrenia are more likely to experience health morbidity and to die prematurely, by up to 25 years, from suicide or physical illness. GPs are in an ideal position to detect and treat schizophrenia and related psychoses and to monitor and manage the physical health of patients with psychotic illnesses.
