Issue 12 | December 2014Dr Ayman Shenouda travelled a long road to his role as the new Chair of the RACGP’s National Rural Faculty (NRF). Born and trained as a surgeon in Cairo, he started his Australian medical career as a surgical registrar in Tasmania before moving into rural general practice in the NSW town of Wagga Wagga. Shenouda is the first international medical graduate to hold the position of NRF Chair and is looking forward to his new challenge.

With the vast majority of Australian women having Pap smears done in general practice, GPs are set to play a major role in the implementation of the National Cervical Screening Program when proposed changes are brought into effect in the future.

The Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education’s (FARE) ‘Women Want to Know’ campaign was developed to help healthcare professionals raise the issue of alcohol and pregnancy, and provide the best advice to women who are pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant.

Up to 150,000 thousand older Australians are affected by shingles every year, with a significant number of those developing the painful postherpatic neuralgia. This patient demographic can see major benefits from their GP telling them about their options for the live-virus shingles vaccine.

The Practice assessment module in the RACGP’s recently General Practice Management Toolkit is designed to provide GPs and practice managers with information about assessing a practice’s internal and external structures, helping to develop more efficient business methods.
