85197 - Contemporary Gynaecology for General Practitioners

  • : Online

To inform and further educate General Practitioners about common gynaecological problems such as abnormal uterine bleeding, temporary and permanent contraception, hormone replacement therapy and post menopausal bleeding. 
To further develop their counselling skills on new therapeutic modalities such as outpatient hysteroscopy, levonorgestrel and copper IUDs, hysteroscopic sterilisation, endometrial ablation and minimally invasive procedures. 
To advance their skills in identifying patients who need specialist intervention as well as implementing more efficient pathways to improve patient care and safety. 
 

Relevance to General Practice

The most common reasons why women seek physician's help are contraception and abnormal uterine bleeding. 
Dysfunctional uterine bleeding is one of the most common gynaecological problems. 
Excessive uterine bleeding accounts for two thirds of all hysterectomies and most endoscopic endometrial ablative surgery. 
in most cases, the conditions above can be managed by GPs. A small portion of patients need to see a specialist. 
A gap in care was identified with considerable implications for patients such as long waiting period and failure to start or continue treatment. 
Feed-back collected from GPs by Dr Ades during educational events and visits to GP clinics showed that care can be improved by further developing GP's skills on therapeutic procedures and by refining GP's ability to identify patients who need specialist intervention. 
Patients will benefit from access to faster, safer and more cost-effective treatment.
