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:
- describe methods that assist in conveying information to concerned patients
- discuss urgency issues around some critical presentations to general practice
- identify local services for transient ischaemic attack management and opportunities for prevention of poisoning
- analyse the professional and ethical issues involved in implementing a management plan before the diagnosis is made
- examine practice triage policies in specific areas and improve as required.
