Flexible, self-paced and remote learning
Our new online e-learning environment allows clinicians and healthcare professionals to undertake training relevant to their scope-of-practice. By providing these short courses and online training programs, we hope that learning can be undertaken at times that best suit busy clinicians and healthcare professionals, and accessed anywhere.
With predisposing and reinforcing activities, and an evaluation questionnaire on completion of the workshop, these courses are accredited and approved for CPD points.

Foundation Certificate of Women's Health
Female patients (adolescent and adults) account for over 56% of primary care consultations in Australia. The Foundation Certificate of Women’s Health equips GP's with a comprehensive understanding of women’s health issues including crucial areas such as STIs and cervical screening, PCOS, pregnancy and menopause.
This workshop will provide training and comprehensive guidelines to general practitioners on the diagnosis and treatment of various types of skin cancers. We will also be presenting on the use of fine needle aspiration as a part of the triple test for breast cancer, as well as discussions regarding breast cancer and endocrine histopathology. Discussions, presentations and case studies will describe various topics such as elevated troponin levels, serum electrophoresis and genetic testing for a range of conditions.
Chronic Pain Trap
The GP plays an important and central role in the coordination of any pain treatment strategy. However, the literature shows that GP’s have low satisfaction in treating patients with chronic pain and only 34% of primary care physicians felt comfortable in managing these patients . This seminar will provide tools, information and guidelines to the participant that will seek to address this shortfall in training and impart confidence in managing patients with chronic pain.
Foundation Certificate of Men's Health
The Foundation Certificate of Men’s Health will equip GPs with a comprehensive understanding of men’s health issues, including crucial areas, such as prostate conditions and prostate cancer, STDs, smoking and alcohol use and the health impacts of these behaviours on health and wellbeing in men.
