  • 2019 has come to an end, and we’re in that reflective mood, as is common at this time of the year 🙂 The last 12 months have been jam-packed: and while we’re enjoying a brief lull in proceedings, we’ve been reflecting…
  • As GP’s we all manage musculoskeletal injuries in athletes. Most of us will only see recreational athletes, while our presenter for this month’s post, Dr Corey Cunningham, sees professional and elite athletes. The principals are the same, and as GPs we can give advice, and investigate and manage most injuries. Sometimes, though, specialist opinion is […]
  • Genetics is gaining prominence as time goes by, and as GPs, we need to keep up with the developments so that we can use the latest knowledge to our patient’s advantage, and also answer questions that may come our way (either from our patients or in exams!) In this month’s webinar excerpt, we listen in […]
  • Every registrar I speak to wants to know: What’s the trick in passing Fellowship exams.  That’s a good question – with a complex answer. It’s similar to “How do you eat an elephant?” The answer is “One bite at a time”.  How do you pass the exams? One step at a time. Unfortunately, it’s not the answer […]

  • Imagine that you’re a GP registrar, and your supervisor has sat in on one of your consults, and now wants to give you feedback. Have you ever considered how open you are to feedback?
  • Dizziness is a common presentation to general practice (between 1 – 15% of consultations)1. When patients present complaining of dizziness, it’s important to gain an understanding of exactly what they mean, as various terms are used to describe different clinical presentations. In this month’s webinar excerpt, we share a short snippet from the webinar on […]
  • Workers Compensation and Return to Work is a topic that is challenging for registrars, but an area where we as a GPs can have a positive impact on the outcome, just by the way we approach the patient. A common presentation, like acute back pain following an injury at work, can become chronic and complicated […]
