153347 - eLearning: Managing Prostate Cancer in General Practice

  • : Online

This eLearning module will focus on imparting the necessary skills and knowledge to GPs to enable them to provide current evidence-based care to their patients. Tools which support discussions around PSA testing in asymptomatic patients, for patients presenting with signs and symptoms, for accessing local referral pathways and case studies which illustrate common patient presentation will form the content of this learning activity. 

Relevance to General Practice

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in Australian men. Despite a high survival rate a significant sub-group of patients report poor quality of life related to treatment side effects. There is potential for general practice to improve their patients experience and outcomes by being aware of risk factor, informing and assisting men with their decision regarding PSA testing, knowing which symptoms to investigate further as well as understanding management options and supportive care needs. 

Learning outcomes
  • Describe the current evidence related to prevention, early detection, presentation, initial investigations and referral for prostate cancer.
  • Use evidence-based tools and resources to determine patients risk of prostate cancer & to help asymptomatic patients decide whether to proceed with PSA testing
  • Identify how to access local diagnostic imaging and specialist appointment referral pathways for patients presenting with signs and symptoms of prostate cancer
