164511 - Great South Coast GP education series July-Dec 2019

  • : Online


The primary objective for the provision of this education is to offer GPs in Rural Victoria access to education that expands on their knowledge of a broad range of medical and surgical topics. During the course of this program presenters will focus on topics clinically relevant to general practice and providing participants with the latest updates and practical tools for early detection, preventative approaches and management of their patients.

Relevance to General Practice

As first point-of-contact, General Practitioners see the widest range of conditions of any specialty and this has consequences for continuing medical education. In rural and remote Australia, geographical and demographic features lead to great diversity in both the range of presentations GPs may encounter and the facilities that may be available to administer primary care. To optimise the rural GPs effectiveness in providing primary healthcare they need to have access to quality, accessible, valued continuing professional development within the Western Victoria Primary Health Network region that responds to the needs of our local community. A Needs Analysis has been conducted which has identified a range of topics that GPs have requested to be addressed in the 2018 education program. These 2hr sessions will provide GPs with the skills to increase their confidence in the diagnosis and treatment of common related problems seen in general practice including preventative medicine.
