161553 - ‘Red cells go pop’ - a practical review of common haematological conditions

  • : Online

The aim of this activity is to provide participants with the latest information relating to haematological issues.

Relevance to General Practice

In rural areas of Australia the range of health services is limited and major inequities exist in health care provision. Consequently, general practitioners (GPs) are forced to play a pivotal role as key providers of health and medical services. Patients with a haematological malignancy returning home from the lengthy ordeal of high-tech specialist treatment in the metropolitan area will have a strong need for competent holistic support. For these patients and their families, establishing a positive relationship with the local GP will be an important factor in their post-treatment rehabilitation. Therefore there is a need for support and education for GPs coping with such patients.
