Good Practice

GP17 Aug Banner

MayofcGetting men involved with their health can be a challenge, but GPs can play a significant role in engaging this patient demographic. Opportunistic consultations, considering mental health and challenging traditional ideas of masculinity are some of the avenues to helping these patients open up to healthcare practitioners.

The RACGP’s Fellowship in Advanced Rural General Practice (FARGP) can help rural GPs expand their skill sets and better serve their communities. The FARGP includes pathways for practising GPs as well as general practice registrars, and is completed through the RACGP’s interactive online learning program, gplearning.

Australian GP Dr Rosalie Schultz believes healthcare is a universal right for all of humanity. She learnt a number of valuable lessons when she travelled to West Africa’s Sierra Leone to work with Ebola patients, including primary care’s fundamental importance to a nation’s health.

A new RACGP resource can assist GPs’ clinical decision making when dispensing potentially harmful drugs. Prescribing drugs of dependence in general practice is designed to provide GPs with an up-to-date, evidence-based resource they can use to best suit their own practice.

Establishing and running a general practice comes with many of the same obstacles faced by other business owners. ­­­Starting a medical practice, the fourth module in the RACGP’s General practice management toolkit, has been developed to help GPs who want to launch their own practice.
