163469 - Man through the ages: a journey of healthcare for men

  • : Online

This full-day event provides up-to-date education on the various stages of men’s health, from adolescence through to older adulthood and aged care. 
Traditionally men present to GPs for acute illnesses, sporting injuries or psychological distress, making preventative health screening opportunistic. This event provides the latest tools to assist with identifying and discussing preventative health options.

Relevance to General Practice

In primary care, Men’s health is often a topic which is narrowed down to discussions around cardiovascular risk, alcohol use, Suicide and prostate or sexual health. 
This view is partly driven by the fact that men are more likely to present for acute illness, sporting injury or psychological distress than for preventative health measures. As a result, men have generally had a lower life expectancy with life expectancy of women being 84 versus life expectancy of men at 80 with men being more likely to have increased incidence of chronic disease burden associated with lifestyle and diet (1). This is even more sharply defined in the aboriginal and torres strait islander men.
