Heart failure is a significant health issue in Australia, with complex diagnostic and management methods that must be tailored to each patient. This ALM comprehensively covers the many stages of heart failure management including the identification of risk factors, diagnosis and investigations, pharmacological and non-pharmacological management, management of progression and comorbidities, the use of implantable devices and end-of-life care, and multidisciplinary care programs.
Accredited Learning Module (ALM)
Our 5 or 6-hour online ALMs provide GPs with the opportunity to develop in-depth knowledge, skills, behaviours and attitudes in a range of topics relevant to general practice.
Each ALM is accredited as an RACGP Accredited CPD (Category 1) activity and worth 40 RACGP CPD points and the listed number of ACRRM PDP hours.
This activity looks at the key diagnostic and management features for common mental illnesses, including depression, anxiety, bipolar and schizophrenia. The role of the primary care team is discussed together with the principles for best practice management of these conditions. A range of both pharmacological and non-pharmacological management modalities are explored through case studies.
