Ophthalmology - Update on Cataract, Glaucoma & Oculoplastics


Time: 7.30pm - 8.30pm

Online Webinar

Glaucoma, the silent thief of sight, is undiagnosed in up to 50% of Australians. With the increasing uptake in diagnostic tools such as OCT (optical coherence tomography) and visual field testing, we are now detecting glaucoma earlier. This webinar will highlight newer treatment modalities, discussing advances in drops and laser, as well as less invasive surgical options. A number of patient education resources will be presented. This webinar will cover managing cataracts in patients with glaucoma. Specialists will also discuss diagnosis and management of common periocular lesions and eyelid malpositions. Moreover, it will highlight the relationship between systemic disease and several of these disorders, which in some cases may carry significant morbidity or mortality for the patient.

A 2021 Update on Common ENT Problems


Time: 7.30pm - 8.30pm

Online Webinar

ENT symptoms are very common in general practice. Snoring, sleep and sinonasal complaints are amongst the most frequent. Surgical interventions are often over-applied in this patient population and should be applied to a very limited subset of patients. This webinar describes the relevant clinical assessment, interventions and identification of those patients that might actually need specialist care. Specialists will also discuss how patients might benefit from surgery as part of their OSA treatment and what surgical treatments are available.

Navigating Through the Storm of Substance Use in Adolescents


Time: 7.30pm - 8.30pm

Online Webinar

Adolescence is the peak age of initiation of substance use, but few adolescents seek treatment for their general health. Alcohol, Nicotine and Cannabis remain the most common substances used, however, polysubstance use is common and associated with greater harms. General Practitioners are at the frontline of providing screening for young people at risk, as well as brief interventions. This webinar will provide an understanding of the evidence around substance use in adolescents and their comorbid conditions. It will provide tools for screening and assessing adolescents in General Practice. Dr Katherine Klamka and Ms Georgia Farrar will provide a summary of referral pathways and evidence based management approaches relevant to General Practice.
