GP Update - Melbourne
- : Melbourne, VIC
The GP Update a one-day course run by GPs for GPs, focusing on several clinical areas and the latest guidelines for diagnosis and treatment of common conditions and disease states presented in general practice. The program collates the latest issues, literature, research and best-practice guidelines, interprets these for real life general practice, and helps you keep up to date with all current topics pertinent to primary care. The program follows a lecture-style approach with plenty of interaction from the audience, humour and visual cues to help get the messages across and keep you listening (and learning!) throughout the day.
The program is targeted to medical professionals working in general practice who do not have time to read all medical journals and attend various general practice education events but would like to keep up with current issues, implement new ideas into their practice, and continue to provide safe and effective patient care through training. Participants include general practitioners, general practice supervisors, general practice medical educators, overseas trained doctors, general practice registrars, medical students on placement in general practice, and general practice nurses and nurse practitioners.
The GP Update is the only program of its type to be completely free
from pharmaceutical company sponsorship. Participants can be
reassured that there will be no biasing of the information presented
and no pharmacy representatives will be present on the day.
