Dementia in primary care: Recognising and managing behavioural and psychological symptoms and physical comorbidities

Behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) can lead to quality of life impacts in not only the individual with dementia, but also others around them. This module explores the assessment of BPSD using the ABC (antecedent, behaviour, consequence) model, and discusses the management of BPSD using pharmacological and non-pharmacological methods as well as the management of comorbid conditions associated with dementia.

Management of movement disorders using deep brain stimulation – focus on Parkinson's disease

Parkinson's disease is the second most common neurological condition in Australia, and effective management requires a multidisciplinary team approach involving pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments. This module explores the latest evidence-based approach to the management of Parkinson's disease, dystonia and essential tremor, with a focus on the role of deep brain stimulation in the treatment of neurological symptoms and new advances in this therapy.

Mild cognitive impairment: What impact can GPs have by acting early?

Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is an increasingly prevalent condition in Australia, and GPs can play a key role in its identification and management through early diagnosis and action. This module explores how to identify risk factors and make a diagnosis of MCI, and outlines the effective development of treatment plans for MCI in primary care.

Dementia in diverse groups - On-demand webinar

As in many therapeutic areas, cultural and linguistic diversity has an impact on the recognition, diagnosis and management of dementia -- but the ‘how’, ‘why’ and ‘what to do’ for people with dementia in diverse groups can be tricky to navigate in busy primary practice. This activity explores the different clinical presentations of dementia in diverse populations, as well as the social, family and other considerations relevant to people in cultural and linguistically diverse (CALD) groups.

Epilepsy is a common problem for older adults, and has a greater impact in older people compared to younger populations. This module describes key differences between the causes and presentation of epilepsy in older versus younger people, as well as special considerations for prescribing antiseizure drugs for older people. This two-hour activity contains a online learning module as well as a patient review exercise involving preparation of a GP Management Plan for a patient.
