165050 - Masada and The Avenue: Suturing for GPs - it’s a cinch

  • : Online

An opportunity for GPs and their colleagues to practice suturing techniques and discuss skin cancer management

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.
