92043 - AFP Clinical Challenge April 2017: Advances in Physiology

  • : Online
Relevance to General Practice

Australian Family Physician (AFP), a peer reviewed journal, aims to provide relevant, evidence-based, clearly articulated information to Australian GPs to assist them in providing the highest quality patient care. Content is applicable to the varied geographic and social contexts in which GPs work and to all GP roles as clinician, researcher, educator, practice team member and opinion leader. As our knowledge of physiological and pathological processes increases, technological advances emerge in medicine to improve disease treatment and management. The April edition of AFP highlights some recent advances in our understanding of molecular and genetic mechanisms involved in diseases such as cancer and gastrointestinal disorders, and new therapies for these diseases. As GPs are at the forefront of healthcare, it is essential that they receive ongoing education as new knowledge emerges and new therapies are developed. This will enable them to provide optimal healthcare for their patients
