Shining a light on sun-damaged skin: Recognising and managing non-melanoma skin cancer and other effects of sun-damaged skin

Sun damage caused by ultraviolet radiation is linked to a number of common conditions such as solar keratosis, skin cancer, and photoaging. This module looks at the prevention, diagnosis, and management of common non-melanoma skin conditions in general practice, and will help GPs identify when a specialist referral is necessary.

Busting the myths and redefining myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS)

ME/CFS is a complex, chronic, debilitating disease with systemic effects, which is estimated to affect up to 250,000 Australians. This module aims to educate GPs and others working in the primary care space about our evolving understanding of ME/CFS as an illness, and looks at some of the myths surrounding diagnosis and treatment.

Clearing the air: Busting myths about nicotine replacement therapy for smoking cessation

This module aims to help all HCPs to systematically identify smokers, assess their readiness to quit and nicotine dependence, and offer them advice on smoking cessation support. In addition, this module looks at the efficacy and safety of nicotine-replacement therapy (NRT), and provides a suite of resources for supporting patients through their quit journey.

Night-time symptoms in COPD: A forgotten aspect of clinical management

Over 75% of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) experience nighttime symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, breathlessness, or tightness in the chest. This module is designed to help you understand the impact of night-time COPD symptoms, and provide you with tools and resources to support your COPD patients.

Taking control of problem drinking

Alcohol consumption is Australia’s second largest cause of preventable morbidity and mortality, yet problem drinking is poorly managed compared to other chronic conditions or lifestyle issues. This module will help GPs understand how to detect and identify problem drinking, and manage it using a multidisciplinary management strategy.

HIV PrEP prescribing in general practice

Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is the most effective bio-medical form of HIV prevention, and trials across Australia have shown a dramatic decrease in new HIV infection in those at risk of HIV. This module provides an overview of PrEP, and includes a patient case study to help GPs familiarise themselves with taking a sexual health history prescribing PrEP, and providing patient education.
