Insulin therapy is a key part of glycaemic management in type 2 diabetes, and individualised treatment is central to providing optimal outcomes. This module outlines the tailored selection of insulin regimens for initiation and intensification, and the effective use of education and review to provide ongoing care.
Symptoms of lung cancer are often vague and can be overlooked, however, early and rapid investigation and referral is necessary for optimal patient outcomes. How can we give ourselves the best chance of identifying possible lung cancer in our busy primary care practice?
Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) and flash glucose monitoring (Flash GM) are new technologies that can assist in achieving effective glycaemic control in type 2 diabetes. This module explores the role of CGM and Flash GM in providing effective diabetes care, and provides guidance on interpreting glucose profiles and setting personalised targets.
Work your way through a case study of a hypothetical patient with COPD in this case study quiz, and test your knowledge on the latest recommendations in COPD management.
Timely intensification of glucose-lowering medications to achieve target HbA1c is a key aspect of type 2 diabetes management. This program aims to support initiation or intensification of insulin therapy for patients who are currently not at their target HbA1c.
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.
Learn how to take a systematic approach to diagnosis, investigation, referral and ongoing management of oral cavity and oropharyngeal cancers. This module also includes a video demonstration from head and neck surgeon A/Prof Richard Gallagher on how to examine the oral cavity, oropharynx, and neck.
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.
