What's polio got to do with general practice in Australia in 2020?

Late effects of polio include post-polio syndrome and symptoms such as residual weakness, musculoskeletal imbalance, growth retardation or skeletal deformities in affected limbs, respiratory insufficiency and cold intolerance due to circulatory disturbances. Many patients living with the late effects of polio are unaware that their current presenting symptoms could be related to their initial polio infection. This module aims to educate GPs on the late effects of polio and how to identify and support affected patients.
