164398 - Waverley: A Stitch in time! An essential suturing skills update workshop for GPs

  • : Online

An opportunity for GPs to participate in a “hands on” suturing workshop including theory and practical sessions. 
Participants are provided with resources required.

Relevance to General Practice

GPs are generally the first port of call in the Australian healthcare system. 

Problem/s managed by GPs may (at times) be limited to the level of a presenting symptom. At each patient encounter, up to four problems could be recorded by the GP. The range of problems managed at the encounter often crosses multiple body systems and may include undiagnosed symptoms, psychosocial problems or chronic disease, which makes the designation of a principal diagnosis difficult.

Learning outcomes
  • Confidently undertake a punch/shave biopsy and recognize limitations
  • Perform basic skin closure after mole removal
  • Plan and explain the principles of small flaps
  • Delivery
