AFP in Practice questions are designed to get you started in a small group learning (SGL) activity
in your practice or with colleagues. Requirements to earn 40 Category 1 CPD points for a SGL
activity are: minimum of four and a maximum of 10 people, minimum of 8 hours of discussion in
a year, and at least two GPs. Groups may include anyone else who has an interest (ie. practice
nurses, community health workers, allied health professionals). A kit with all the instructions and
forms you need is available at www.racgp.org.au/afpinpractice.
After completion of this activity participants will be able to:
- identify areas of communication in discussing challenging content that could be improved
- devise a method to incorporate the use of clinical decision tools into clinical practice
- analyse the feasibility of a suggested approach to your individual clinical practice
- integrate knowledge from either decision aids or the individual patient into decision making when there is uncertainty
- discuss critically the systems in your practice for warfarin management.
