Vulvovaginal Disorders in General Practice

CPD Activity - 2 points

Free Online Webinar


Several challenges face GPs in the diagnosis and management of Vulvovaginal disorders; a range of different conditions can manifest with the same morphological patterns, and many disorders can express a multitude of symptoms, disorders are commonly multifactorial, patients are embarrassed to confide in their clinician and over-the-counter remedies are readily available.

Following a comprehensive diagnostic pathway is essential as delays in accurate identification has potential ramifications on a wide range of health conditions. Presented by Sexual Health Physician Dr Sally Murray, this workshop will outline strategies aimed at improving your consultation interview and examination skills, as well as recognising normal anatomical variations, and the influence of hormones.

Managing Grief and the GPs Role

CPD Activity - 2 points

The way grief manifests can differ dramatically from patient to patient. It is therefore vital that practitioners be aware of the variable presentations of normal grief, and are able to identify pathological grief. This webinar will provide strategies to support grieving patients, helping to alleviate the physical and mental health issues that result from complicated, severe and prolonged grief.

The end of a life touches us all at some point in life - GPs can offer support to people who are facing mortality or dealing with grief. RACGP are proud to present Associate Professor Lauren Breen, School of Psychology Curtin University. Lauren will discuss not only how to improve our capacity to respond to distress, but also offer informative and practical support.
